Loxley by David Forrest - DVD+G
Price: $33.00

Dave Forrest presents 'LOXLEY'! A killer 'predicted card at number effect' with a stunning kicker!

Effect:
You send a picture message to your participants mobile phone (or, you can just hand them an envelope with a picture inside if you prefer) - it's your prediction. You hand them a Joker and ask them to push it anywhere they like, face up into the face down deck. It's a completely free choice, they can genuinely push it in where they like. You explain that whatever card is ABOVE the Joker will be the focus of the experiment. But, you also don't want to know where that Joker lies in the deck so, the spectator is instructed to freely cut the cards as many times as he wishes so that no one could possibly even estimate the position of that Joker. Two things are certain. One - no one could know which card lies above the Joker. And two - no one could possibly know at which position in the deck that card lies. You spread through and locate the Joker, leaving it out-jogged. You now count cards from the top down until you reach the card directly above the Joker - it's the Jack of Clubs and it's exactly 16 cards down in the deck. The participant checks the picture message on their mobile phone - it's a photograph of a Jack of Clubs with a small post-it stuck on the face which reads '16th' in bold black letters! You mention that, in fact, you were so certain of this outcome that you didn't actually bother using the rest of the cards. The deck is turned face up and every single card is freely shown to be completely BLANK! It's completely unfathomable and the reactions are THROUGH THE ROOF!

�Loxley is VERY EASY TO DO - no sleight of hand!
�Loxley is completely customisable - you can change which number the card ends up at.
�Loxley is the PERFECT WAY to hand out your contact info - just include it on the photgraph that you send to their phone.
�Loxley is a WORKER - instant re-set, easy to do, impossible to deconstruct.
�Loxley does NOT use a phone App. It's not a tech thing - you can just hand out the prediction photo in an envelope if you prefer.

Contents:
Blank deck
Gaff cards
Instructional DVD
Customizable printable and 'smartphone optimised' prediction images are included on the DVD.

Heirloom WALLET Deluxe (Trick Separate)
Price: $68.00

This wallet which is also known as "The Shogun 11" Wallet, has had a lot of time and effort put into designing and perfecting the multiple out wallet so that it is completely deceptive and absolutely practical for real-world use.

This wallet has been specially designed in dark leather to make performing the effect easier than ever before. And a special built-in feature allows you to show the wallet empty after you remove your prediction, eliminating any doubt in your spectator's mind!

After the phenomenal success of Heirloom, we are very excited about the new companion wallet, which will also come with additional ideas and routines that will enable you to perform a number of high-impact, killer mentalism effects.

The Volunteer Swindler
Price: $25.00

Two bills are displayed, a regular $10 bill, and a $5 bill with a slit in the center.
Both bills are placed into your wallet. Explaining to the audience, that whenever you are in a store or a bar and the bill is $10. You always pay using only the $5 bill, with the slit in it. The $5 bill is folded in a split second, to look EXACTLY like two $5 dollar bills. If the specially folded bill attracts suspicion, its no problem, you are a magician. The two $5's instantly and visibly change into a $10 bill.

The $5 bill, with the slit, is now back inside your otherwise empty wallet.

This is a super visual, stunning bill transposition. Both the bills change and the slit vanishes.
Its easy to do and a real winner. You will love to carry this you everywhere you go.

The Volunteer Swindler can also be performed with other bills/notes from many different countries, including Euros & Uk notes.

Comes with training bills and a step by step instructional DVD.
Change Bag TR (Green) by Bazar de Magia

Greatest Utility Ever! Put an item inside the bag, then turn it inside out - VANISHED! Turn the bag inside out again - APPEARANCE! Use the Change Bag with any object that fits into the bag Producing! Vanishing! Changing! One hand activated.

This new style change bag is remarkably well made, made of nylon, which is highly shock and intensive use resistant material; also the magic change bag structure design has been changed to considerably improve their performance. Comes complete with an online manuscript (*.pdf file) showing 25 change bag magic trick routines in English French, Spanish, Japanese and Portuguese languages.

It's a prop you'll be proud to own.
CROOK LOCK
Price: $85.00

A large bill (at least a $20) is secured in the plastic frame and a padlock is snapped shut through the frame. Six keys are shown to the spectators. It is demonstrated that only one of the keys will open the lock. The keys are mixed up in a bag. Five volunteers are given a free choice of key leaving one left for the magi. They are told that if their key opens the lock and releases the $20.00 bill it will be theirs to keep. Before each volunteer is asked to try his or her key, they are asked if they would like to trade it for the key you are holding. Each person in turn tries their key, unfortunately none of the keys work the lock. The only key left is for the magi, which happens to open the lock. The magi therefore retains the cash.

This is a great effect to use as a sucker trick at a kid's party. Children love the chance to win some money. If you use a smaller amount like a $2.00 bill it is a great way to control a win to the birthday boy or girl who acts as the magi.

The Invisible Gun by Devin Knight - Trick
Price: $12.00

A classic effect from the past, now revised with a new and improved method. Imagine showing your hand to be empty, front and back, then forming it into a finger gun and shooting at an object. Much to the surprise of the audience, they hear an actual bang! Devin Knight's new Invisible Gun will allow you to do just that, and do it without the use of any caps, explosives or hidden shooting devices. A new method that is 100% safe. No chemicals or thumb tips needed. No expensive gadgets to buy either. You can do this within minutes of reading the ingenious secret. Anytime in your routines, you can add to the effect by forming your hand into a gun and firing at the object with a bang being heard. You can do this during walk-around magic gigs and repeat the effect whenever you wish. You can place a coin into one hand; form the other hand into a gun and fire causing the coin to vanish. Create the shooting wand effect with any ordinary wand. No need to buy those expensive shooting wands. Just pick up any wand and wave it and you will get a bang. Wand is not gimmicked in any way. THE BULLET CARD: Here is a routine that is included with this release. Take a deck of cards and have one selected and left in the middle of the deck. Show both hands to be empty, then form the right hand into a finger gun. Aim at the deck and fire your finger gun. A loud bang is heard. Hand the deck to the spectator and ask him to remove his card. Much to his surprised, his card now has a bullet hole in it, complete with burn marks. He can examine the deck and there are no duplicate cards. This is a new bit of business that is not being done nowadays and will be a real novelty to your audiences. Complete with full photographic directions and special Bicycle Bullet card to use with any normal deck. Easy to do.

    NAME ANY DRINK
    Sale Price: $400.00

    THIS BRAND NEW ILLUSION IS PART OF A PRIVATE SALE. ONCE THIS IS GONE, IT'S GONE!

    Here's the tale of a special carton of milk. Pour a pitcher of chocolate milk into a paper milk carton. You then proceed to pour the the milk back out of the carton into six individual glasses. The magic comes from the fact that every single time you pour a drink into the clear plastic glasses, the liquid visibly changes into a variety of different drink options! White Milk, Strawberry Milk, Cola, Orange Juice, Ginger Ale, and Beer are all poured from the carton until the carton is completely empty. When you are done, you can rip open the milk carton to show that there are no secret or hidden chambers inside!

    Best of all, you can immediately pass out all the drinks you just poured to be tested by the audience. Once the audience tastes their drink, they will discover that it really is the drink it appears to be! Truly, an astonishing piece of stage magic that can be shared with the whole audience!

    OSCAR MUNOZ LIVE (2 DVD SET)
    Price: $50.00

    Oscar Munoz gives you everything you need to entertain an audience!

    On this two DVD set, watch as Oscar performs his workers in his 50 minute show. The billiard balls, the rings, his 2 rope routine and more, plus a revealing conversation with Kozmo about developing comedy in magic.

    You'll be amazed at what's inside!

    Live Show

    2 Rope Trick

    This is a practical multi-phased rope routine based on the original "Sand-Sational" from George Sands. It begins with an amazing production of "ends" of the rope, and then transitions into a beautiful two-rope sequence. As ever, Oscar takes you through the routine step by step, giving all the nuances and touches on how to present this to a family audience.

    3 Rope Trick
    This is an exceedingly clever way of dressing up Professor's Nightmare. Rather than doing the classic trick in the same old way, Munoz shows two sets of ropes: one set has three ropes of equal length and the other set has three ropes of different lengths. Under test conditions and as visibly as possible, Munoz causes the sizes of the ropes to transpose.

    Linking Rings
    Learn this elegant version of the Linking Rings from a master of the classics: Oscar Munoz. Oscar's routine uses just three rings and it showcases several original, visual penetration sequences. The routine is best suited to music or light patter, and it's the perfect length for a family audience.

    Billiard Balls
    The billiard ball manipulation effect is a classic, yet good, PRACTICAL routines are almost impossible to come by. Oscar details a fun, comedic yet elegant routine that incorporates three color changes, a production sequence, and an elegant finale. He details all the props, moves, and routining that you need to perform this routine. Best of all, his routine is designed to look amazing from far away and quite close, so it's perfect for family shows or parlor audiences.

    Balloon Swallow
    One of the most popular parlor routines EVER is taught to us by Oscar, with all his professional touches. There is hardly ANYTHING that a magician can do to elicit a stronger reaction than to seemingly swallow a long balloon. This is the method to do it safely and entertainingly.

    Blake Vogt: Coming to Light
    By Jamie D. Grant
    People scoffed when Blake Vogt said he wanted to design illusions for Las Vegas magicians. Yet, a few years later, he was doing just that, and he has now consulted for many of the biggest names in magic, in addition to keeping up his own performing career.

    The Official Wizard of San Francisco
    By Mike Ching
    A throwback to the days of the traveling medicine-show pitchman, Dr. H.P. Lovecraft was one of the premier street performers in San Francisco forty years ago. His mixture of magic, comedy, and hokum was influential in the world of vaudeville presented to passersby.

    Mel Mellers, Mirthful Marvel
    By Alan Howard
    Onstage, Mel Mellers manages to remain charming while being cattily insulting to his audience. Offstage, this British comic magician is quietly thoughtful, carefully analyzing his material for maximum impact.

    Latimer's Perception
    By Alan Howard
    Jason Latimer's new show, Perception: See Beyond the Illusion, is not an example of magic versus science; it is proof that the wonder of one leads to the discoveries of the other.

    In One: Blake Vogt
    Although he is only in his twenties, Indiana native Blake Vogt has been making a reputation for himself as a creative consultant for many of today's most noted magicians, as well as establishing a performing career of his own. This month, "In One" features Blake's own descriptions of two of the many tricks he has created. His impromptu version of a Card to Wallet effect is performed for one person, yet adds an element of mystery for the rest of the audience, who think they know what is happening. T-$hirt is an almost instantaneous transformation of a dollar bill into an origami shirt.

    The Monk's Way: Monkey in the Box
    Steve Reynolds
    The now well-known footage of "The Invisible Gorilla" embodied the idea of intentional blindness. However, it was not the first time I had seen this idea used in magic effects. I thought, This is exactly the kind of thing Bro. Hamman employs in his work. I had seen it time and again as I began paying more and more attention to my audiences. In 2002, my colleague B.J. Bueno shared an unpublished idea that used full distraction to put a folded card into a card box. Why not do a similar thing more openly, more boldly? I thought, Perhaps the gorilla wouldn't be seen. It had to be called: Monkey in the Box.

    Loving Mentalism: Sign Language
    Ian Rowland
    Being able to just look at someone and correctly guess his or her star sign is quite an impressive feat. Various methods have been devised over the years, the vast majority relying on having the spectator write something down or ruses such as a progressive anagram. This month's "Loving Mentalism" offers a different approach. It's a wholly impromptu way of giving the impression that you're able to figure out someone's star sign from just a couple of personality questions. There's nothing written down and no props involved. All you need to do is learn the script and you're good to go, anywhere, anytime!

    Bent on Deception: To Script or Not to Script: That is the Question
    Mike Bent
    It's back-to-school time! And for me, that means teaching. I'm starting my 25th year teaching at Emerson College in Boston. One of the classes I teach essentially functions as a sketch comedy group. We brainstorm ideas, write sketches, revise them, submit them, vote on them, rehearse them, and perform them in front of a live audience. It is hands-on, practical work. It also mirrors what I do with my act. I think of all my routines as one-person sketches, and they're sketches written in script form. There's been a lot of talk about magicians and scripting. Is scripting good or bad? I believe scripting is a great idea and a horrible idea at the same time. Let me explain.

    Classic Correspondence: Lloyd Jones to Dave Fiscus (Part 3)
    Mike Caveney
    We return with Lloyd Jones' letter to Dave Fiscus, written in 1958. This third and final installment again represents a master's thesis on the state of the magic world in America during the middle of the 20th century. Lloyd continues to point out the pros and cons - well, mostly cons - of becoming a full-time professional magician.

    For What It's Worth: The Great American Suitcase Act
    Mark Kornhauser
    When a great artist tries to create a great piece of magic, he or she must ask: Am I creating wonder? Am I true to myself? Does this separate me from all the rest? And yet some of the cleverest magicians I know, the ones who seem to work all the time, often ask themselves a different first question: Will it fit in my suitcase?

    Walkabout Soup: The Great Australian Rope Drought of 2008
    Simon Coronel
    It's a well-established view that many of the best rope routines involve genuinely cutting the rope - which means they also involve keeping one's rope stocks topped up. Before 2008, that was easy. Rope was cheap. Rope was plentiful. Rope was so easily available that most people didn't bother keeping stockpiles of it. Then the dark days came. In early 2008, the factory closed. The Australian magic industry was plunged into a sudden and severe rope drought. Magicians realized too late that they had become overly reliant on a single supplier.

    magicians and custom manufactured by a
    leading tent fabricator, the Shadow Tent is
    every magician's dream come true.

    The Shadow Tent is durable,
    extremely light weight, packs super small,
    sets up in minutes, and it is affordable





    Dimensions fully set up:

    5' by 5'
    54" tall inside
    65" to the top of the poles

    The inside of the tent is a little
    less than 4' by 4' at the base.

    Dimensions in bag:

    30" long 8" wide
    (considerably larger than the actual tent
    rolled up, so it is really easy to pack in and there is
    room for your light and extension cord)

    Weight:
    Only 10 pounds


    The Shadow Tent is made with the finest materials,
    including super light-weight aluminum poles.

    It is specially designed to have the best angles of any shadow box on the market
    (notice the pole sleeves create natural flaps that easily conceal more than one person if you like).

    There is a zipper in the front that makes the tent look like a normal tent and the zipper
    can be used to show the tent empty. The whole front panel brakes away with
    Velcro tabs for a real cool appearance.

    The tent is specially designed to be able to revolve 360 degrees with a person hidden inside.
    There are a few hidden poles for stability and a hole in the top back for the light.

    And the creative posibilites are endless,

    Today's Super Deal!

    Beggar Coins by Hank Moorehouse

    Price: $50.00
    This is a wonderful set of ulitlity coins that comes with four 1/2 dollar sized coins, two shells, one larger coin, and a split coin for penetrations.

    The coins themselves are very solid and heavy, and much nicer than many chinese coins I have seen recently. It also comes with 5 pages of routines by Tony Chaudhuri.

    A great outfit and a great price!


    The coins also work fine for Troy Hooser's Charming Chinese Challenge!


    Please note: Coins are slightly tarnished due to the age of the sets but can easily be cleaned and brought back to their original luster.
