Topic: Cool New Micro Illusions! Asrah and crystal casket MICROSIZED!
Message: Posted by: Peter Loughran (Sep 9, 2011 08:26PM)
Hey All, I built a Micro sized Asrah and crystal casket illuison combo like NO OTHER ever before! It was a labor of love and I built the first one for myself, as it was something I always wanted, mini Illusions but that actually work like the real thing, I just think its totally cool(Im a kid trapped in a man's body I guess)! These work and are built just like the real thing, only microsized. Colletctable yet totally performable.

Here is a video:

Im only building and selling 20 sets of the Asrah and Crystal Casket combo, all numbered and come with certificates of authenticity. They will be available through myself and Hocus Pocus, so if anyone is interested, please pm or email for Details. More microsized illusions to come in the future.

Hope you get a kick out of it anyway!

Peter

Great creation, Peter. I can just imagine my son performing this in private parties and school shows. So cute.

What's the price, Peter? Can't find it on your website.

Hey Doug you can send me an email and I can give you current details.

Lou, thanks brother! Yeah my 5yr old son Cole said this was his favorite thing in my collection! I think because he can just push a button and make the lady float up and down!

I might also add that, when I was at the check out buying a bunch of identical barbie dolls, I had some of the strangest looks from people I have EVER seen! Too funny, I had to play it up, so I just kinda stared at them all with crazy eyes, to myself in a crazy laughter, tapping my fingers together, uttering the words "excellent"! True story! Which obviously didn't help the strange looks!

This is brilliant, Peter. It's funny, entertaining and magical. Looks like the sort of effect that would work for pretty much every group.

Did anyone else get the "uncanny valley" feeling during the clip? Freaked me right out.

Martin.Lester, no secret, just didn't think I can mention prices etc., on the thread due to the Café Rules.
My web designer is really busy this week and won't get this up on my site until next week. But I am taking orders (only 20 will be built and sold) if you or anyone is interested, simply feel free to pm or email me for details.
Thank you to those who have already ordered one of the limited sets! I appreciate the support!!

And Mike, that's funny, yes barbie was not hurt, and she was great to work with, never talked back and took direction very well!
:)

Glad you found my story entertaining 1908! I should have filmed it!

Let me see if I get this right....we are now at the stage in our careers where we are playing with dolls? Lol!

Thanks for the update Peter...check your messages when you get a chance. I'm looking forward to sharing this with my groups. The tourist season has slowed down here in Southern California, so there is no rush guy. I've kept the data that you shared with me entirely to myself for obvious reasons mate...your terms are very generous and I love that it packs flat!

Yes I play with Dolls! What are you trying to say Devious!?? :)

While we have sold several units so far, and a sincere thanks to those who have placed an order, there are still several left up for grabs out of the 20, and also available at http://www.hocus-pocus.com

Greets-- funny thing regarding the idea of "micro illusions"... I thought about making things like that 30+ years ago in order to have small, inexpensive, easily transportable illusions that could be purchased/built and used by young magicians... good job Mr. L. for getting it done!

I bought a portion of Creative Magic, so I'm gonna miss out on this, however.... :(

Thanks Joe! Yeah I had the idea for a while too, and finally just got around to making it a reality. I have plans to make a few more classics that will work just like big illuisons, such as a zig zag and sawing in half perhaps.

Yes and I understand that purchasing a portion of Creative Magic will no doubt make it hard for anyone to spend additioanl money on this, as it is an "I want" and not an "I need". We have sold quite a few out of the 20 limited sets, but obvioulsy due to the economy and the price of this, I still have several unspoken for, so Im going to finish the ones I have orders for quicker and then after those ship out, take my time and finish building the rest of the run, and just sell them over time, as I know there are still many people interested who need time to raise the funds. But know that this is a labour of love and are very expensive to make and very time consuming, but they are so very cool! I love performing mine for friends and family, its hoot!

Thanks for all those who have placed and order! we are working hard in the shop, and building them all with love!

Best,

Peter.
