Topic: What's in 'your' wallet?
Message: Posted by: VcosNJ (Mar 25, 2005 06:01PM)
This has probably been asked a billion times so if there is a subject on this already, I apologize. Anyway, just like that credit card commercial, what do you have in your wallet for that impromptu situation? When a spectator asks, show me a trick, are you prepared? Leave the cards at home, since that will never fit in your wallet. No TT's either unless you've got a soft one but I wouldn't be carrying it. Same with spongeballs. Anyway, here's what I carry:
-Wonderland Bill
-Hundy 500 gimmick
-A few coins for some vanishes and reproductions
-Improv Nightshades gimmick
-One of Ford's credit card tricks.
Anyway, I need a card to wallet. Maybe that's the one thing I'm missing..

Hi ,
I always carry in my wallet a couple of prepared cards to do Osmoses linking cards, a couple of card warps and the ballpen penetrating two cards , which is hard to explain , but it's good.

A red ribbon tightly wound to save space, to do some ribbon and ring effects.
Linking key rings (made by myself, following Sankey's 3 Ring Circus)
A deck of cards in the back pocket (esp for Dr Daley's Last Trick,
Vernon's Twisting The Aces, and working on Marlo's Estimation Aces)
and, lately - carrying an Okito box with 4 Standing Liberty Half Dollars
(still working on this one though)

Of the above, recently I've been getting some of the best reactions from the ribbon and rings.

At any given time, all I carry are a few rubber bands, between 2 and 4 Half Dollars, occasionally a Centavo to do my variation on Wild Coin, and some cards. If I have my bag, it's loaded with everything from forks, to extra cards to force on a spec so that I'm not ruining my deck with every trick.

All those gaffed cards, coins AND a normal deck of cards? You must have a pretty thick wallet.

I always carry Wonderland Bill, as it fits in with a credit card, and wallet space is limited. Also, in the bill section, Embezzlement by Bill Prior - a neat mentalism piece. I intro Wonderland Bill as not magic but interesting like Origami. Everyone finds it fascinating. Keith

Message: Posted by: miky (Oct 6, 2005 10:59AM)
- a couple of half-bills of different denominations so I can borrow a bill and do a T&R (I usually do Daryl's version of Ripstoration). If I have time and can borrow a coffee cup, I roll up the pieces of the "torn" bill and do Curtis Kam's impromptu chop cup routine, Coffee and Dough -- very strong and highly recommended

In my wallet I have s***** writer and business cards, that's all I need for a quick mentalism act. Pocket writing also plays large in this. Open wallet and their just mentioned word written on post-it, for them to keep.

I don't carry much except for a few rubber bands, a b'wave, a really simple blank paper to bill gimmick inside my wallet. The wallet itself is somewhat nifty though, as it has a levitation gimmick built into it so I can do a quick set and end with my wallet floating an inch or two above my hand.

1) ribbon and rattle box containing a duplicate ring to one I am wearing :) for appearance and then penetration onto my ring finger, etc
2) key rings including prop for 3 Ring circus by Sankey
3) copper/silver for Short Hop (Jenest)
4) spinning rings
5) small thin weight for balancing a straw on table edge way off center
6) a miniature 1 1/2 inch wand (paper clip with plastic triangle attached, available at office supply stores) to give to spec who forgot to bring their magic wand with them (great for misdirection)

all that fits in a rather small change wallet, less than half the size of my palm
and of course cards in the back pocket

My wallet is a stealth assassin. I carry inside my business cards (always a good thing, when you do impromptu to give at the same time your phone number and e-mail), cards for ungaffed BWave (Alain Nu), a nail writer, a shiner and, in the secret compartment, an index with simple drawings. As you may guess, I do mentalism and in these field, there's a lot of impromptu material.
