Topic: Help with the Illusion Girl in Half
Message: Posted by: Tercero (Sep 29, 2003 01:58PM)
Hi friends!
As corporate magician, I was asked to do the "girl in half" illusion. I know some different props and presentations to perform this effect, but I'd like to be advertised about this question. Which one do you prefer?
Thanks in advance!

How much do you want to spend?
Bill smith Clearly impossible is great at 9200.00 Bill or John Gaughan can build a great model at 7500.00 with the best feet.

We can be talking about 6000 more or less, but I can study other options. Where can I get information about Clearly impossible or Jihn Gaughan models?

Don't forget about the Zig Zag, and Modern Art.

Thanks Peter, but my client said that must be a "clasic woman in half". I already have the Zig Zag, but it isn't enought.

Look for a chalet model they selling at 5500. new...look for used units.

Try the wakeling sawing from wellington or there is one on magic auction.com with the non known illusion builder listing I think. It looks pretty good.

I like the Wakeling Sawing the best, too. Mark Kalin and Ginger do a very nice version of it.

All the best magic,

Hi Tercero

I have a Wakeling Sawing and think it is the best. There is plenty of scope for audience participation and the props are so simple looking. I get screams from the audience when the first blade goes in! If you have ever seen Rick Thomas do it at the Tropicana you will realise what a powerful version it is.

Also beware of cheap imitations! The thin-model sawing has been ripped off so many times...shameful!

Spend the money necessary for QUALITY! Copperfield uses Gaughan-built stuff...he will settle for no less!

Equal in quality is Bill Smith's illusions, but I know very little about Clearly Impossible.

What bugs me about the rip-offs are the "feet"...and that's all I'll say about that. ;)
