 WIZKOTE (LARGE)
AND ROLLING TABLE
CHALET MAGIC
I bought this Chalet WizKote new several years ago from Chalet Magic . It's still in great shape. It was always trouped in a custom built ATA road case. This is the large version so you can use an adult shoe if you wish. I also had Chalet build a rolling table just for this prop.

Prop is constructed 100% out of aluminum

Whimsical "faux escape" transposition effect that is a strong audience favorite. Brett Daniels original routine depicts the magician "interrupted" onstage by a "policeman" who throws the magi into a distressed "jail cell" enclosure. The doors are locked, a blue cloth drops, a shot is fired...and the magician is gone! A moment for drama...then the policeman turns around and reveals himself to be the magician!

 NOT SO ORDINARY
MIRROR BOX
TIM CLOTHIER

Can be performed surrounded - This expertly built mirror production box was custom built by Tim Clothier in Las Vegas and was used for only one project. It was artistically themed as an ordinary wooden equipment crate that would be found around the house or that would be used to transport an item (company product). It is attached to a metal stand with wheels which keeps it elevated above the stage, so the audience can see under and around the box at all times. In effect, an ordinary wooden crate is shown elevated above the stage. It is revolved and shown on all sides. Front is opened and the interior of the box is shown to be completely empty. Front door is then closed. Top of the box is opened and handfulls of items are pulled from the box. Front is opened again and the box is still shown empty. This can be repeated. For a finale, the magician gestures at the front of the box and, when the front door is opened, the client's product, an animal, or final production item is now seen sitting inside, filling up most of the box's interior. Also included is a metal sign holder that attaches to the top of the box which can be fitted with a sign that says "Appearing ???????????", to be used in a presentation in which a client's product or a randomly selected item from the audience is made to appear in the box. It also has an option where the phrase "Dis" can be added to the sign, changing it from "Disappearing" to "Appearing" during the presentation, or vice versa. This is included as well. Box is built extremely well and the operation of the gimmick is very smooth. Production items not included. Includes wooden case.

 THIS IS HEAVY
JAY MATTIOLI

EFFECT: Invite a spectators on stage to help in a demonstration of muscle hypnosis. Seating spectator on a small wooden stool, the performer "hypnotizes" the spectator into believing a small silk handkerchief weighs over 1,000 lbs. An empty cardboard box is shown on all sides and placed on the wooden stool. Second spectator now invited on stage and is asked to place handkerchief in the box and then lift the box with its silk contents off stool, which proves to be a simple feat. But when the hypnotized spectator attempts to lift the box, he just can't do it! It is simply too heavy for him to even budge! The second spectator can even reach in the box and remove the hanky, which then allows the box to become light enough for the hypnotized spectator to lift off the stool. But whenever the hanky is placed back in to box, the hypnotized spectator can't lift the box at all. This becomes a riot for kid show audiences
as well as for adults - possibilities are endless.

If you have ever wanted to perform Jean Robert-Houdin's Light Heavy Chest with ease, without worry, and with deceptiveness, this is the only version that solves all the problems of previous versions.
Performer never touches the box during the routine.

Contents of box can become heavy while the performer is no where near the box or spectators, and always under his complete control.

DO IT ANYWHERE!
No Suction Devices - No need for a super smooth, glass-like surface to perform on - No giant disc for the floor.

Use a cardboard box which can be viewed inside and out on all angles! There is nothing to see. Very easy and stress free to operate, letting you focus on the important part of this classic illusion, the presentation.

 LADY FROM THE LIGHT
JOHN GAUGHAN

Was informed that this was built for Zigmont
by John Gaughen for one of his Las Vegas productions. Impressively Built and very clever. This illusion comes with it's original trooping crate (with casters) for transporting. Sets up in less than 15 minutes and includes several features so the girl can make her appearance without a thick base. Effect is that the cabinet is shown on all sides and the front is opened to show it is empty. An electric lightbulb on a cord is used to show all sides and the light can be seen through the thin white paper that make up the walls of this cabinet. The front door is closed and eerily shapes appear with this cabinet, eventually forming the silhouette of a woman (or man) and then breaks through the paper for the appearance. There is an optional flash pot that can go off when the person appears through the paper (close up shown in photos). This is removable. Entire Unit ships in its own Trooping case.

FLOATING GUITAR
AND CASE

MIKE MICHAELS

Each guitar is hand crafted by Mike and comes with three floating methods with the full floating package. The guitars are ultra light weight, including balsa wood necks and vacuum formed bodies as well as real guitar hardware. Each guitar is numbered and signed by Mike. They are painted with automotive metallic and clear coat. Each order includes a guitar, a GATOR hard case, a powder-coated click on/off body waist harness, a full-stage floating apparatus and a vanishing cloth. FLOATING METHOD 1: Body harness allows half second click on/off of the guitar to float side to side and fully adjustable air-operated up-down and 360 spin. This harness attaches quickly around your waist and designed to be worn under your jacket. It comes in 3 body sizes and can be adjusted. (For ladies, I have suggestions how to work this into your costume.) FLOATING METHOD 2: Each guitar has a secret gimmick built inside it that allows you to float it down and completely away from your body then back up to your hands. This lets you show the guitar floating in a different way than the body harness during the same routine. FLOATING METHOD 3: While you perform the first two methods fully controlled by yourself, this third, full stage method allows your assistant to float the guitar totally away from your body and across the stage. Your assistant has a full control of the guitar: how it raises, lowers and spins as if it were under your command. This method also allows you to vanish the guitar with the included vanishing cloth.
Presentation: Mike Michaels Floating Guitar is not designed as a soft levitation. This concept is recommended to play a fast-paced rock guitar song. Floating a guitar is suggested during points of a song when the guitar is not played. The guitar can spin very fast and hook on/off with a lighting speed. The full stage motions of the guitar can spin and float much faster and further than other floating items on the market today. This new product is for a professional performer who is dedicated to our art of magic and who understands the reward of rehearsal just like the Zombie or Dancing cane or Don Wayne's floating ball. Because there are so many varieties of motions possible, rehearsing all the three methods in one full routine will rock the house!!! Guitaar stand not included.

 SANDZ
(OF THE DESERT)
JAY MATTIOLI

This piece of magic has been published in magic books and even sold in different variations and yet, at best, all you would receive is a few baggies of sand with some vague instructions. First time, the classic Sands of the Desert routine (aka Hindu Sands) is being released to the magic community as a beautifully detailed, entire package with absolutley everything you need to perform the effect! Effect is timeless and can be performed from 3 feet to 203 feet away from your audience. You may have been turned away from this effect in the past because of all the details and "things" needed to pull it off masterfully.
THIS TIME, JAY HAS DONE ALL THE
WORK FOR YOU AND IS SHARING HIS UNIQUE TIPS AND YEARS OF EXPERIENCE WITH YOU. Resting on a custom table are three martini glasses filled with 3 vibrant colors of sand and a small pedestal upon which rests a large bowl filled with water. Showing his hands empty, magician places them in the water, swirling the water around, causing the clear water to turn black! Then one by one, magician pours each of the 3 colored sands into the water, swirling the water around each time. After all 3 sands are mixed up in bowl magician reaches back into the swamp like water with his empty hand and pulls out each individual colored sand, completely dry and separate from each other. Finally, with a swirl of empty hands, the black water turns back to clear!!!
