This one-of-a-kind illusion is easy to build as well as transported, but it can't be performed surrounded.
A thin, vertical box is wheeled on stage. The assistants open doors at the front and rear. Inside is a giant sewing pattern, which is removed, and the audience can see completely through the box. All is replaced and the magician stands behind the patter. The box is "sewn through," trapping the performer. Miraculously, the magician escapes wearing an all new costume and a beautiful young lady also emerges from the once empty cabinet.
