If you have a chairsuspension , use helium balloons attached to the footboard to supposedly hold her up then release the balloons. also tony clarks Gypsy balloon. dove from balloon. These are some starters.

One of my favorite tricks is the Needle through balloon illusion. If you get this though, get the protective wand.

Also, do a google search for "Jim Steinmeyer Hot Air". This is a suspension illusion called "Hot Air", from Jim Steinmeyer's book, "Device and Illusion". There is a video on youtube of CJ Johnson performing this, and it's been discussed on previous Magic Café threads.
