 DOUBLE POLE LEVITATION BED
EDF

(Entertainment Design & Fabrication)

A beautiful ornate bed is seen on stage. The magician and assistant sit on the bed ( one on each side ) with legs crossed. They float up ( pole Levi style ) then they float out in front of the Poles
( Pendragon Style ). Two independent controllers control each persons levitating movements. Each person can levitate all the way up past the top bannister poles. Also each performer can levitate simultaneously independent at any height from the other performer. The Harnesses come up from the bed and rise up to each performer and after the illusion they retract back into the bed. This is the only Pole levitation in existence with that upgrade. The headboard and the footboard are removable so it could look more like an Ultra Lounge Style bed. Both pole mechanisms are engineered to hold 225 lbs ! The bed is primed
and can be painted any color. The bed can be
art directed in many different ways.

 DEATH CRANE
DAVID MENDOZA SHOW FX

The illusion is a modular crane that can be extended from 20 feet to 30 feet and at the full extension of 40 feet in length. The Illusion is made out of aluminum and is very light weight considering it's size . The effect is the Magician is shackled in a kneeling position at the base of the crane with his arms locked and shackled to the eye bolts on both sides. Then assistants cover the performer with a cloth while his hands shackled are still visible. The crane is turned on and the blades make there decent to the performer. When the blades are half way down the crane to the performer , the cloth is lifted and he is still there. Then they start to spin and turn out of control. Finally the blades cut through the cloth and the performer vanishes and reappears in the back of the house. The crane is a technological marvel with a full control console and an isolated safety shut off. The crane is able to lift and lower remotely by the console. The illusion comes apart and packs virtually flat for shipping.

An amazing trick - larger version seen by Jon Dorenbos on Americas Got Talent. Money is placed in chest and locked. Four darts are thrown at dart board map of the united states (magnetic darts). Each state has a number. Magician adds the numbers on calculator. Chest is opened by spectators and they think number will add to change. But in fact all four quarters are match to the states. Magician never touches the chest and no extra assistants are needed. Can also be done where 4 quarters go in box and locked when opened the four quarters match. Beautifully made in high quality craftmanship. Very few of these exist. Dart board not shown is 2 feet by 3 feet.

 WALKING THROUGH A FAN
CREEATIONS LAS VEGAS

This Walking Through a Fan illusion is a large, impressive prop and illusion for your Halloween show. Originally built for and performed by Dan Sperry by Creeations in Las Vegas, NV. It works smoothly and is very safe, even though it looks frightening. This can be performed by just two people. There are some issues with the prop due to an overzealous forklift operator during shipping.
I will describe before purchase. Nothing that affects the performance of the prop. There is no case for the prop.
Prop shows wear and may need some refurbising. Video of prop in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_VIM_oMzlw

DISEMBODIED
& ATA CASE
Sterlini Magic
(Done Completely Surrounded)

Own a piece of Magic History and perform a great illusion that's in excellent condition. This is the "actual illusion" used on the TV series. This can be "done totally surrounded" unlike many of the "Disembodied Princess" props. It can even hold a 6 foot magician (easily) or an assistant in performing the miraculous illusion by putting two blades through the head and torso and then open all doors and show how the head and legs remain but the middle has disappeared (as the head and feet sit in full view). It's then spun all the way around and illusionist puts himself or something through it to discard possible mirrors being used and to show that the middle is really gone while legs and head remain in full view. All is then reversed by closing all doors and person comes out restored. An extremely deceptive illusion, and this type is rarely—if it’s at all—seen. The prop is in an "extremely" good condition.

 APPEARING CAR
OWEN MAGIC SUPREME

A sensational, promotable illusion! A long cloth is stretched out and the LOUD GROWL of a big engine is heard. The cloth drops to reveal a real car; broadside to the audience, with the performer at the wheel. The car makes its appearance so quickly that explanations seem to be ruled out. The illusion may be performed without alterations to the stage, and may be struck quickly. Of course, you do have to do something with the car... Since the apparatus is adaptable to nearly any vehicle, a promotional tie-in with a local dealer could be of mutual benefit! The illusion needs a fake table for the car to appears on and cloths.

 BROKEN AND RESTORED
IPHONE 2.0
MATT GRISHAM
Performer asks audience member to join him on stage. He asks his volunteer if he can borrow their cell phone for a new magic trick he has been working on. Volunteer gives the magician his iPhone. Magician places phone inside of a "safety" pouch and pulls out his special magic wand. Magician waves the wand over the bag, making it vanish or so he believes. Bag is torn
and out falls the iPhone hitting hard on the floor. Magician picks it up very embarrassed and worried that it may have been harmed in the trick. Magician flips his magic wand (turning it into a hammer) around to try and fix the phone. Banging on the phone and beating away the magician has no luck on fixing the phone he actually makes it worse. Magician tosses phone backstage and tells the volunteer the bad news. Their phone has been broken, but he has a prize instead to make up for the blunder. Hanging above the stage, the entire show has been a small box. Magician steps up upon a stool to pull the box down. He opens up the box and inside is a small clear plastic tube containing what appears to be the volunteers phone. Phone is taken out and given to volunteer for verification.
