I made a quick video of the squirting flower concept / Gag.
It's practically the same as the joke store gag squirting flowers, except mine is battery powered.  ;D

Great video, elkad! That's a clever use of a super soaker. (You can use them for more than chasing cats off of bookshelves!) Your daffodil looks great as well. You mentioned the white petals not being accurate to the story, but the daffodil does look the part. Have you tried coloring those white petals with a yellow permanent marker? Or rubbing them down with some yellow paint? (One of those should stick well enough so as not to rub off, especially if there's any texture to those petals.)

In the screen grabs you showed, the actual prop's "fanned out" petals were a slightly different color yellow from the central bell petals of the flower, so if the color doesn't match exactly with a marker or paint, you should still have an excellent match for the on-screen prop.

You've definitely got that squirting action working just fine! I can't wait to see more.
