Cool Costume, Bro - Weekly Recap

Posted on May 16, 2014 by Chris Ballinger There have been 4 comment(s)

This week we discuss the costume or outfit that you wear when you perform magic. I think that everything comes down to character. I've talked about this a lot in the past, but you guys brought up a lot of good points this week so let's take a closer look:

The Talent Show Playlist features new video content that you can't see anywhere else. You can check it out by clicking HERE.

The featured product this week is E2 (or Extractor V2). This is a very cool gimmick that will enhance your card magic from mere "tricks" to absolute miracles. Freely selected signed card is put back into the deck (by the spectator!) and the box is closed up and put away. Not only will you be able to name the card, but you will be able to reveal it from any location that you can think of! Whaaaaat?! Flippin' awesome!

We also talked about a previous Weekly Recap where I give pointers on a breaking up a magic effect in order to practice various details in isolation. You can check that out by clicking HERE.

I also mentioned something that I had learned from the book Strong Magic (I called it "Stronger Magic" in the video because I'm not perfect.) Anyway, in that book, Darwin Ortiz covers a bunch of ideas that will actually make your magic "Stronger". It is one of my all-time favorite magic books.

We also touched on Jeff Kaylor's TKO Gimmick. If you are looking for a traditional topit, might I suggest the 21st Century Topit by David Penn.
