The name is a pun based on the concept of “headcanon”, fandom slang referring to elements and interpretations of a fictional universe that are accepted by an individual or small group of fans, but which is not necessarily found within or supported by the official canon.
I started with the base game Fat Man mesh and added the blast shield and dual propellant tanks of the unique Esther mesh from the Gun Runners' Arsenal DLC. I then shortened the forward pump grip to not protrude through the blast shield, and added some graffiti decals for decoration.
