Diffusion for Canon VL-10Li?

I have this light and it is a super bright light. Unfortunately, I don't believe there are any attachements (barn doors, etc) for this light and I have found that because it is so blinding to my subjects, I need to add some diffusion to this light. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should use for diffusion and some safe ways to attach it?

Thanks in advance.

I have the same light and encountered the same problem. Some one suggested using a piece of wax paper with a rubber band around it. I haven't tried it yet.

Check your local still photography store. They should stock the Lumiquest products. They make a couple different softboxes that attach to a flash unit with velcro. You could also apply it to the Canon light.
