In FLCL Progressive, as a result of Julia Jinyu splitting off from her, Haruko’s hair is slightly shorter, spikier, and orange, but she retains her yellow eyes. FLCL (Japanese: フリクリ Hepburn: Furi Kuri, pronounced in English as Fooly Cooly) is an original video animation series written by Yōji Enokido, directed by. While FLCL’s literal “plot” resembles something of a Space Opera, its real appeal lies in one of two places: As a Coming-of-Age Story filled with allegorical and.
Welcome to the new and improved RPF! Click here to learn more about the features of our new software. Discussion in ‘ Replica Props ‘ started by BoomerjinksApr 8, Log in or Sign up. Haven’t posted since the posters hit the internet in a big way I never could have thought this would happen.
I’m currently working on getting the posters printed on mounted canvas or a higher-quality framed material and holding an auction for a local charity, but that seems like it might not come fpcl fruition for a few months yet. Anyway, I wanted to share another thing I’ve been working on. Last summer I decided to fulfill one of wife’s yellw dreams of having a scooter.
She would often talk about wanting a Ruckus or a superbike, but she would more frequently fawn over how cute a classic Vespa looked. She’s also a pretty avid cosplayer, the kind of girl who spends hours dying and styling wigs, who has completely taken over the second bedroom of our clcl with rolls of fabric, buckets of resin, and all manner fll crafting accessories.
I started a secret savings account last July and I’ve been putting little things into it since.
In February I reached fll goal and started officially looking for a starter body. The SS is a pretty sought-after type of scooter, it’s not the rarest or most valuable, but it’s really popular. Originally I planned to build a clone by buying a late 70s P-series scooter and swapping out the parts to make it into an comparable look-alike of an SS.
At the end of February I lucked out. Someone in Arizona was selling an SS, the exact body type that I needed. The exterior was kind of rough, but mechanically it was sound. The original engine yelllw been removed and replaced with a more powerful, more reliable, and easier to maintain engine from a P This made the scooter undesirable for a collector, but ideal for someone who wanted to turn it into a nerdmobile. I guess the meme of “and nothing of value was lost” might apply here!
So I made up a story about going snowmobiling across the divide with my brother as a cover to keep my wife from asking too many questions. I grabbed a good friend to tag along and we departed for Flagstaff, Arizona. We drove through the night, planning to sleep in Socorro, but stopped in Albuquerque to visit Walt’s car wash from Breaking Bad. That was pretty cool. After leaving Socorro we headed west to another place I’ve been dying to visit for years, the Very Large Array.
Most famous for it’s role as a location in Contact, Terminator: Salvation, and a handful of other films, the VLA is a set of 27 dishes arranged in a Y-shape that yeklow as one large radio telescope.
FLCL (Anime) – TV Tropes
We hit the visitors center, watched the little video and looked at the exhibits, and I picked up some VLA swag for my nerd friends back home. The staff saw the car and got pretty excited we must have rlcl their only visitors in a whileand they let us drive around the access roads of the facility for some neat photo opportunities.
Great people, awesome place.
Near Holbrook, Arizona we came across an old Route 66 Wigwam motel that dlcl classic cars parked in front of each room to add to the atmosphere. So it looks like Radiator Springs is a real place! After that was Meteor Crater.
BoomerjinksApr 8, Why am I not closer to where you live? Oh, and nice scooter.
I’m an avid motorcyclist and had worked in a custom bike shop for a few years Those things are great around town and me being a fan of FLCL, kept thinking that I would do a project like this. I’ve seen the idea thrown around a lot on the net but this is the first well done version I’ve ever seen.
Kerr AvonApr 8, It’s nice to finally see someone building some fooly cooly stuff! BoomerjinksApr 9, Cklinejr made some intense modifications to the right control switch to make it work with the turn signal, and AJ Quick has been a lifesaver with letting me use his workshop for pretty much everything for the last week or so.
BoomerjinksApr 18, Really cool to see you added the handlebar jellow, those are a couple of the coolest parts on Haruko’s Vespa! I showed it to my wife back when we eyllow datingshe Darph BoboApr 19, Going to paint and attach the wheel blade tomorrow! BoomerjinksApr 19, BoomerjinksApr 23, FlcllMay 1, Awesome gift idea, and really thoughtful how you did it.
The Vespa looks great and It’s exciting to see such a cool and iconic prop from such a great Anime! Does it have the aftermarket Gundam part she used to fix it?
WeaselhammerMay 1, I don’t even flcp Anime and I want one! Very well done, it turned out beautifully! CaptainEOMay 1, Kroenen77May 1, That is very cool. I love the show even if most of the time it makes no sense no matter how many times I’ve yrllow it.
FLCL – Haruko’s Vespa SS Scooter | RPF Costume and Prop Maker Community
I am amazed how many FLCL fans popped up in this thread. Wes RMay 1, Now all u need is someone to cosplay this All you gotta do now is convince your girlfriend to start dressing like Haruhara Haruko.
And I thought making a Wasp breast plate out of foam for my wife was good. That is a fantastic build. Go with a high quality, heavy weight paper for your posters. Canvas prints are really for duplicating painting, and when you put photos or poster style artwork on it the grain from the canvas just distracts from the art. Print shop owners like to try and push the canvas because it makes them more money, but your work will be better represented on quality photo paper.
KnowoneMay 2, Charles KlineMay 3, Lol, are you guys members of the modernvespa forum? Those guys would be banging their heads against a wall right now seeing this. I love this project though, love the show and love the scoot. As someone who used to sell motorcycle turn signals and accessories, those barend signals for vespas and scooters are expensive!
Saw this in RL, it’s awesome!
RikarusMay 3, I thought this was worth mentioning, the closing credits of the show feature a stop-motion sequence with a Super Sport mocked up like the show piece. It has grey colored grips with the handlebar signals. GreyMay 4, BoomerjinksMay 4, Im betting someone had the yelloow and they modeled it for the show, NOT that they built a replica for the end credits.
Charles KlineMay 4, As long as it don’t start moving on it’s own HawkBladeMay 4, Wes RMay 4, Here are a few more screencaps from the show. Here’s another image of the scooter used in the end credits. Different twist grips, no front fin.

Does look like the dressed up the one for the credits to match the show. Sweet, what a cool scooter. JohnLoganMay yellwo, Still questing to find the perfect location in Denver for an all-in-one photograph with power lines, a bridge, a river, and that elusive yellow sky! BoomerjinksMay 6, If you don’t mind me asking how much did this process cost to create and it appears you have obvious skill in the matter and strong resources and connections. What yeolow you imagine the cost to a normal person without these connection more or less the retail cost of the creation of such a Vespa in the style of Fooly Cooly.
But is there a purpose of the front fin or just for show, if the scooter did have all those mirrors in the anime, would you have added those and any chance of making Canti?
