This effect is one of the most versatile productions in magic. It can be performed under test conditions, up close and surrounded.
Simply enough, four boxes are set around the stage. One is resting on a thin, castered base. One by one, each box is stacked upon the other until a tall cabinet is formed. This unit is now revolved to show all sides. The rotation is stopped, and the magician claps his hands, as the front of this newly formed illusion opens and out steps your lovely assistant!
Now that, of course, is just the basic effect. You can do so much more with this prop. It can be used at sales meetings to magically produce guest speakers. It can be re-themed to look like wood crates, toy blocks, dice, or whatever you can think up. Its presentation can be fast, slow, or even talked over.
Our plan supplies you with a gorgeous harlequin design on the front and, of course, all building specifications are included. From an artistic standpoint, this plan is a must for any serious collector of magical documents. From a building standpoint, this plan is all that stands between you and your new dynamic opening illusion.
