 TRAPLESS
CREATIVE MAGIC

NO TRAP DOORS - NO SLIDING PANELS - NO SECRET COMPARTMENTS - NO WAY...
A highly collectible, limited edition version of Metamorphosis. Creative Magic, which has now ceased all new manufacturing, only made 100 of these in a limited release which sold out years ago. This particular prop is #100 of 100. This one is like new and includes all of the original extras (handcuffs and shackle, instructional DVD for use when performing this and certificate of authenticity). This prop works differently than standard sub trunk escapes. It's a magician fooler, and will also fool audience members who might have seen the Masked Magician (jerk!) explain a standard subtrunk. The supplied routine allows the magician (or assistant) to remain shackled to a seated spectator throughout the performance - but the metamorphosis still takes place. NO - Currtain and hoop supplied.

QUICK CHANGE COCTAIL DRESS
Valerie in France. It was taken to a Los Angeles costume designer and adjusted to add some theatrical design touches and to make it look even more contemporary and stylish. In effect, a woman is seen wearing a sleek black cocktail dress, with silver accents onstage. As a cloth is waved in front of her, the dress instantly changes into a bright red cocktail dress with red and gold accents. It is one size fits all and will fit most dancers. Both before and after the change, the woman can spin 360 degrees and dress looks completely ordinary and seamless. It is constructed extremely well and is in mint condition.

 BRICK WALL
VERTICAL SHADOW BOX AND ATA

TIM CLOTHIER

This one of a kind Vertical Shadow Box was built by Tim Clothier/Illusion Projects in Las Vegas. It is a vertical shadow box built out of an extended building brick wall, looking like it was ripped out of a theater. It is also elevated 18" above the stage on a very thin platform. There is no base method used. The prop is revolved 360 degrees, showing it on all sides. The brick wall is completely flat with absolutely no ledge or place for anyone to hide. Once the prop is revolved, the front door of the prop is opened, like a draw bridge, and the brick wall is tipped halfway back, allowing the audience a clear view through, under, and behind the prop. Everything is closed and suddenly a light illuminates the inside of the box as the shadow of the performer appears. Once the shadow has appeared in full, all 3 sides of the shadow box fly up (blinds) cleanly revealing the performer in a standing position in front of the brick wall. It also has two light poles, built by Tim in brushed aluminum, for dancers or assistants to use if preferred. This can also be used to make a CEO or special guest appear. Includes ATA case and performance rights.

 BACKSTAGE AND ATA CASES
BILL SMITH MAGIC VENTURES

A classic Illusion portraying a "backstage" glimpse of the secret of "how is it done" by allowing the audience to see this major illusion from behind the scenes. Rather than performing this illusion in a "normal" fashion, the magician spins the prop 180 degrees to allow the audience to see things from another perspective. They witness magicians assistant "secretly" hidden behind one of two "boxes" and "discover" the assistant moving from behind one box into the other after it is shown empty. Second box (containing the assistant) is now lifted up and placed into the first box - supposedly to cause the assistant to magically "appear" from within the two nested boxes. But tables are turned as when the boxes are opened, the assistant has vanished and in her place is a surprise appearance by another character in show...or perhaps an audience member! A sure hit...no special lighting, can be performed surrounded, great for TV special appearances, corporate events, theatre, etc.

 CHEATING THE GALLOWS
AND ATA CASE
JOHN GAUGHAN
This is supposedly the original used by Mark Wilson and later Lance Burton. The “accused” climbs the steps and is robed with a black cape. A noose is secured around the neck, and the release pulled. Robed figure hangs in midair for a moment, then falls through the platform – the victim has vanished! He/She can reappear in the back of the theatre or some other place. We modified this illusion so that the steps can be rolled away, eliminating the need for stage traps. Use it anywhere! Ships in a very large custom built ATA case.

 APPEARING MOTORCYCLE
DREAM ILLUSIONS

A large box is rotated so all four sides are seen. Box is tipped forward so the audience can see it is clearly empty. Box is tipped back into position and all four sides of the box fall open revealing the magician on a motorcycle! We modified this illusion so that the original roller shade that served as a top to the box is now a flap secured by Velcro. It eliminates some of the finicky handling issues and can be used to screen the load in the case of onlookers in a balcony. We used this to produce Santa Claus in a snowstorm a dozen times last holiday season. Motorcycle not included. Ships in one large fiber case.
