Closer Look at Moustache

Posted on April 4, 2013 by Chris Ballinger There have been 3 comment(s)

The final touches are being added to my latest trick "Moustache" and I am so excited about sharing it with the magic world! I truly believe that this is one of the best routines out there for connecting with your audience.

The moustache has become an iconic symbol and a new wave of style. I think it's about time that we as magicians catch up with this trend and take advantage of a topic that has built-in popularity.

I have been playing with the moustache theme in magic for over a year now and I think that I have finally come up with the most practical and visually appealing routine possible.

As we wrap up the DVD for this project, I have been diving deep into my past journal entries, making sure that all relevant material is included in the final cut.

I've posted a few photographs of design and concept sketches that have been filling up my idea books for the last year or so.

As with most of the projects we do, a majority of the ideas did not make it to the final cut. It can be tough to determine which concepts are the most useful and which ones I'm just holding onto because I want them to work. But after testing every outcome in real-world conditions I think we've made room for only the best material.

    First let me do a little test to see if your blog is having a problem posting comments. I would always post something and it wouldn't appear on the blog for a week for some reason. I finished typing this at 6:01 PM on 4/8/2013 and it might not show up until this same time on 4/15/2013. Anyway, I agree, I think moustache is a fun trick and has potential to be humorous. But, my only problem is that the moustaches will lose their stick. I've had a novelty moustache once, it didn't last more than 2 days. Will you make refills for the moustaches or do you, Chris, have a solution that you explain on the DVD. Please, post an answer (but it might not show up for a week if your having the same issue as me).

    Hi Monte the Dragon

    Thanks for pointing out the slow posting times. In an effort to reduce spam all comments need to be approved by a real human being, so there is a little lag time between when someone writes a comment and when it gets posted. If we didn't do this the site would get bogged down by horrible spam comments.

    I do have a practical solution to the stick situation which is described in detail in the DVD. I have found it to work beautifully and allow me to use the same moustache for a very long period of time.

    Thanks for your comments and suggestions.
