 ELASTIC LADY
GUSTAFSON ILLUSIONS

A girl steps into cabinet with arms and head protruding. Arms move down more than 4 feet from their normal positions thanks to another girl hidden in the base. Head moves from top to bottom of the cabinet. In the funniest move, the head is revolved a la "The Exorcist." After the series of moves, the girl steps from the cabinet, none the worse for wear. This Illusion, which is fabricated from birch plywood, is in immaculate condition. Cabinet, which consists of eight 70 x 15-inch panels, is beautifully lacquered in magenta and black. Black base, which is decorated with chrome trim, is 38 inches square. If shipped ready to roll onstage, the illusion is 81 inches high. Base is covered with black stretch fabric to facilitate entry of the concealed girl. When shipped disassembled, base and top fit into a 42 x 42 x 21 inch crate and panels fit into a 74 x 19 x 13 inch crate.

Magician is covered in parachute cloth and two strobe light on both sides of magician are now flashing...in a instant cloth is pulled away and magician has vanished with a bright flash! Curtain is closed and a tall cabinet (parachute cabinet) is rolled out onstage. It is on very tall thin legs so entire view is visible from beneath. Doors automatically open and it I quite obviously completely empty. Cabinet is spun around and faced forward and doors are closed. From rafters above the parachute cabinet drops a G.I.

As the doll descends into the cabinet it turns into the vanished performer who just minutes ago had vanished from the cockpit chair Performer could also reappear from back of the audience with the parachute if wanted or the parachute cabinet could be placed elsewhere.

 WALKING THROUGH A FAN

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

 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.
