 STACK OF BOXES
(UNKNOWN BUILDER)

This came from a professional in the greater Los Angeles area. We had it custom painted with automobile paint for $400. We added a 5th wheel to the base, as Billy McComb taught to allow the illusion to move effortlessly while the assistant is inside. Those oversize wheels are durable and valued at about $150 total. Illusion boxes are metal on the sides, which makes them both lightweight and durable. Easy for one person to lift and stack one on top of the other, for the finale production of the assistant. Colors are great for a 4th of July show. Also, by adding ribbon to the sides of the boxes, they look like gift boxes for a Christmas or Holiday presentation. We added some innovation (IP), for the Christmas shows we present. Buyer is granted live performance rights to that custom addition. (IP rights retained by the inventor.) We produced a "North Pole", once the boxes were stacked. Easily removed thru the top of the boxes, the pole is solid and over 6' tall. THEN, the assistant is magically produced. For a LARGE Production Box, use just the base box. Open it at the top and front, to show a blue box inside. Close the front door and lift the blue box out of the top of the box, showing that box solid on all sides and take a production item out of it. Then, produce as many production items as will fit from inside the red base box!!! That box and idea was a custom project. Buyer is granted Live Performance Rights of that innovation. (IP rights retained by inventor.) Located in Arizona - we will deliver to Phoenix or pick up in local area.

 SHADOWBOX
(UNKNOWN BUILDER)

Performer rolls out a mysterious box and opens up the door to the front to show the entire interior empty with a light staff. Shutting the front, the cabinet is then rotated completely around, proving that it is indeed empty. The light staff is then inserted into the top of the cabinet, thus illuminating the cabinet's interior. The audience can clearly see shadows suddenly appearing, twisting and turning from within, until it finally takes on a human shape. Then the human form burst through the front door which is made of paper, and the audience is surprised to see the performer's assistant inside, appearing from the depths of another dimension! Packs flat and can be put together in minutes. Comes with enough paper for front door of Illusion for many hundreds of shows.

 ARTISTS DREAM EASELS
WITH LEVITATION TABLE
& ATA CASE
(CUSTOM BUILT)

This was the levitation sequence in my show (used in conjunction with a Aga Levitation Device, also for sale in the known builders section here on this site). Though we used these easels as part of our levitation sequence, this could easily be a stand alone routine. The big easel on the left is where you draw the picture of your girl and then she punches through the paper. It has dimmer controlled lights which really help when the stage is darkly lit. The table in the center is where my girl would lay down to levitate and at the end we did the Asrah vanish, but with a different method than most magicians use. The cover cloth for the girl is also included. The smaller easel on the left was just used as scenery, but you could easily make this easel into a magical effect that fits into the routine. All of this was professionally built in house by furniture builders and all 3 pieces pack flat into 1 ATA case. Also included is large roll of butcher paper for the easels.

SPEAR CABINET
CUSTOM BUILT

Assistant squeezes into a small cabinet on the top of a table. 8 spears are then slid through the prop from side to side. Front and back doors are opened to show that the assistant has disappeared and the only thing left are the spears running side to side through the cabinet. Custom built from the Jack Hughes World of Magic book plans with a modified Alan Wakeling base design to help make it more deceptive. Original design called for a wood grain base with a black cabinet. Design has been switched to make the prop more deceptive with the wood grain on the top container and base in black. Bolts and wing nuts hold it together and prop folds completely flat. In this state, it measures 45.5" x 31.5" x 12.5" - Terrific beginning illusion, it is lightweight, goes together and comes apart quickly and can be performed surrounded. No case, will need to be boxed or crated. Packs Flat, Lightweight, Jack Hughes / Wakeling Style Design - No mirrors, no black art. You are really seeing straight through. Doors closed, spears removed and assistant reappears unharmed and maybe a costume change?
