 RABBIT VANISH
CHALET MAGIC

A rabbit is placed into a blue box and then the top, the four sides, and the bottom are taken apart and shown on both sides and the rabbit has vanished. The audience believes the rabbit is hidden behind the cloth on the stand. Magician removes the cloth, folds up the stand to receive a big round of applause. FYI: There is a very small blue Formica chip on the bottom take apart box base and can be repaired with a drop of matching paint, but it's so small the audience will never see it.

 SHROUD TRANSITION
WITH CASE & LADDER
GREG FREWIN

One of the finest new illusions created in the last 20 years – Shrouuded Transition takes the classic Substitution Trunk to an entirely new and breath-taking level.

The magician climbs into the cabinet and pushes his hands out thru holes in the side so they are visible when the box is closed and secured. A light comes on inside, allowing the audience to see the magician in place. The assistant dons a full cape and walks up a small ladder (included) to the top of the box. After a few moments the assistant extends her arms allowing the cape to fully open – the magician iis still visible below and his arms and hands (now held in place by 2 assistants) are fully visible.

The light in the cabinet extinguishes. The assistant leans forward, bringing her arms (and the cape) in to briefly cover her face and then instantly stands up, sweeping the cape wide open again – to reveal the magician is now on top of the box. The light comes on once again and the assistant is in the box. Somehow the hands that have been visible the entire time belong to her.

The beauty of this illusion is the fact that it seems at all times like the assistant is there on top of the box. Even when her face is momentarily covered – she's still there. Thus the reeveal of the magician is shocking, stunning and incredibly magical.

Illusion can be played with/without hands visible (held by 2 assistants). Its killer strong either way. Purchased this illusion for a very specific contract and has been performed less than 20 shows (plus rehearsals).
Includes ATA case, ladder and custom made cape.
Note: No TV Rights and.... No Ontario Canada Rights.

TRIP TO THE MOON
Mike Michaesl


This is a fun and visually entertaining illusion involving audience participation. Amazing to the audience - watch the video - see link

A magician brings a lucky child up on stage and explains how their parents used to take him/her to a trip to the moon every weekend when they were little. A covered machine is presented. When it is revealed, it is a coin-operated kid's ride you see in front of a grocery store. It is retro rocket-shaped with "Trip To The Moon" written on the side.

The magician can dress the child up with a spacesuit and helmet. The magician gives the child a full list of instruction on how to operate it as if it were a "real" flying rocket.

The magician puts the child into the ride and inserts a coin into the machine. The audience hears some exhausted/ancient rocket sounds as it starts to rock very slowly. Our first bit of comedy as we all know the feelings as a child getting in these rides and they were quite disappointing.

The magician adds an extra coin and it becomes a little bit faster. This is just a tease but still funny. Finally, the magician puts a "magic" coin into the machine. All of a sudden the ride vibrates and breaks away from the base. The ride becomes a real flying rocket!

The rocket starts to change its position to point upward with smoke and sparks shooting out as it launches to the moon. The rocket continues flies up and downward. finally The magician covers it with a cloth and the next thing you know, the rocket flies further up and away and the child disappears as the rocket hits hyper speed. For the end, the child can reappear in the back of the house or off stage with a new alien friend.

Here is a new ending with the moon as shown in the photos. (You set up the moon up high in the beginning of the routine. The magician asks the child ahead of time to plant a flag when he/she lands on the Moon.)
After the rocket disappears, the magician is trying to make a radio communication with the child. The audience sees a little rocket starting to spin round the moon.

The magician: Are you at the Moon? - The child: Yes. - The magician: Plant the flag. - Then, a flag pops up from the moon. - The magician: Are you on the Moon? - The child: No, I am in the Moon. - The magician: Say again? - The child: I am IN the Moon! - The magician lowers the moon down and the child is inside the moon! - Very good routine for a family audience.

LEVITATION
WILLIE KENNEDY

Aga Levitation that has entertained audiences for years. Magician or assistant raises into mid-air (7 feet) then floats back down. You may float vertical or horizontal. A hoop may be passed over, (not included) this unit easily breaks down for transportation.

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. For the 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! The effect is timeless and can be performed from 3 feet or 200 feet away from your audience. If you have been turned away from this effect in the past because the details and "things" needed to pull it off masterfully were missing.
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!!!

ONE OF A KIND - Assistants Revenge with Head Twister by Bill Smith - Good condition - In good working condition but shows substantial wear. This is a one of a kind custom assistants revenge with an added head twister effect built by Bill Smith. This is an amazing illusion we have performed for 20 years as a closer. Magician cages assistant in illusion, wraps curtain around prop and assistant appears instantly on outside of illusion and magician is trapped in illusion.
Added Effects: The whole curtain contraption will fall to the ground for reveal. I used to "blow myself up" (flash pot) and the curtain would drop (in video). Prop has been used for years as mentioned and then stored for the last 5 or so. In performance condition but could use some R&R. Cases included but some damage to them from years of road travel. Professional working illusion that gets a great reaction.

 BUZZ SAW
MANDRAKE - CUSTOM

A thrilling version of the Sawing a Lady in Half using no cabinet or other cover. This illusion was originally commissioned by Leon Mandrake for his 1964 Pacific National Exposition performance alongside the Beatles, described in the Sheldon O'Connell book, Mandrake: Incomparable. It was also a prominent artifact featured in the Golden Age of Magic exhibit at the Royal Alberta Museum in 1977. I acquired it in 1990 from a third party and used it in several runs of my Johnny's House thrill-usion shoduring the subsequent decade. Prop is in good condition as seen in the photograph. It may have been repainted to remove logos, although I never painted while in my possession. I did have a checkerboard pattern etched into the top portion of the platform which the girl lies, which served to completely conceal the trap. Blade has had some oxidation; very likely restorable through a chemical bath and/or polishing process, although not necessary in terms of functionality - Works perfectly. Could be repainted as desired; however I preferred leaving it with its distressed appearance as something that looked like it came right out of an industrial warehouse rather than a glamorous stage prop. Prop breaks down into 6 pieces (header, two sides, saw support assembly, blade, bed). Includes road case for saw blade. Also includes leather straps, aluminum safety bar (as seen in photo) as well as fiberglass torso gimmick worn by assistant. Considering its functionality and collectable significance, it is easily worth $5,000.

Micky Hades

A person is seated inside an upright cabinet. The front door is closed and, with their head, hands and feet visible through the holes at all times, their body is apparently s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d out of proportion. Micky Hades built this from the Paul Osborne plans for my graffiti Magic show, presented during the 1993 summer season at Calaway Park. I subsequently used it in my Magic Bus, "Johnny's House" a Stage Fright sho. The prop is in good condition, with minor paint chips and scuffing that can be easily touched up. Breaks flat for packing using pin-hinges. There are 3 detachable crank handles that were added for the Johnnys House presentation, also included. Performance video available at this link: https://vimeo.com/112735110

 RING IN RACQUETBALL
& ATA CASE

Lou Leventhal

Only 25 Were Made - No Longer Available

Effect: A racquetball is tossed into the audience to select a volunteer with a valuable finger ring. After racquetball is returned to magician, it is vanished. Magician comments that volunteer's ring is filthy, and offers to clean it with a "jeweler's hammer" to knock off the dirt. Ring is smashed to bits.

Throughout the routine, a beautiful cherry wood box has been sitting onstage. It contains a "lovely parting gift." Opening the box, an inner box/cage is seen inside. Volunteer opens the cage, and removes another, smaller wooden box, covered in elastic bands. Upon opening the smallest cherry wood box, the volunteer finds what she lost only a few minutes earlier the racquetball used to bring her onstage!

The Volunteer picks up an ordinary knife from the table and hands it to the magician. He saws the racquetball in half. Inside the ball is the spectator's ring, which she takes back to her seat, along with both halves of the racquetball. The volunteer, and the magician, humbly accept their enthusiastic applause.
Very easy to perform and can be done completely surrounded!
This original effect has been refined and audience tested for 25+ years! Nothing is held back! Comes complete with absolutely everything that you need to perform this mind-boggling, reputation making comedy routine!
Each piece is quality hand-crafted by Malloy Modern Magic out of brass and beautiful hardwoods. This will become a valuable collector's piece, but it is made for the professional performer.

Not pictured are the two folding lawn chairs upon which the surfboard is placed prior to rising and lowering. Also included with this illusion is Walter Blaneys great White Hoop. In addition to all of the props necessary to present this illusion are protective materials for the surfboard, hoop and palm tree.

 BLACK ART TABLE
CUSTOM

A utility device for vanishing, producing and transforming people. Built by master finishing carpenter Brad Williams. This has an ingenious sure-fire mechanism that not only drops the black art cloth (masking the area between the two rear table legs) but draws it back up again as well. This allows the unit to be freely wheeled on and offstage at both the beginning and end of the effect permitting a clear view underneath and through all legs. Properly lit, yields a devastatingly astounding effect.
As a utility prop, it can be themed as desired. Shown here with the decorative panels I added to give it a circus theme. Legs detach for packing. Includes a large black canvas floor cloth.

 AFRICAN SLICE
(TRANSFRORMATION)
CUSTOM
A Gorilla placed inside the cabinet is dissected by 5 large blades, eventually to emerge restored as a beautiful lady. Originally built by Micky Hades from plans in Paul Osbornes Illusion Systems Book Three. I re-themed the cabinet (as pictured above) for my Circus Magic show that I presented at Calaway in summer 1994. Breaks down flat into 4 sides, base and top, plus the 5 blades. There are also a dozen spears included from the original presentation, along with the African-themed top and front door panel. This prop was used in conjunction with the Gorilla Cage illusion, and may be found under the title Great Ape Escape also in the Paul Osborne book.

The prop is in very good condition as seen in the photograph, only minor paint scuffing that may be easily touched up if deemed necessary. Wood road case included.

 GET THE POINT
BRUCE CHADWICK

Set-up requires only 4 pin-hinges. I had my builder add some modifications specifically; a front cut-out panel and also a support frame mounted to the back so that spike cabinet assembly will support itself in leaned back position required when volunteer lies upon the table. Illusion is entirely practical and poses absolutely no danger to the person laying on the table. It is a simple illusion to perform, can be performed surrounded. For packing, the rectangular cabinet comes off table and is designed to fit under the table. This means that a packing case does not have to be much larger than footprint and height of the table proper. Illusion is very portable and practical. Entire illusion can be set-up in about a minute. Prop is in very good condition and includes wood construction road case.

Effect: Through the cutout opening in the cabinet, the audience sees a bed of polished metal spears. Cabinet hinges backward and a person lays down on the table. Person to be skewed can be the magician, an assistant, or a spectator from the audience. Box is lowered back down over the person and the illusion is spun around completely to show all sides of the box. Two handles (one on each side of the box) are then engaged and the spikes are thrust down though the person. Due to the open front of the illusion, the entire action of the penetration is fully visible. Audience can also see the tips of the spikes protrude through the underside of the table. Spikes are then pulled back up through the person, cabinet is tipped backward, and the person is none-the-less for their penetrating experience!
