Topic: Levitation/ Suspension - Gimmick under magicians shirt
Message: Posted by: kinjite (Apr 9, 2016 03:42PM)
Hello,

does anyone know the name for this version of Levitation/Supension of lady? in this version the assistant is just suspended in the air. She cannot go up or down. she is connected to magician during the performance. Gimmick is under the magician's shirt. I could only find one seller for this version of levitation. seller is asking for $1500. I don't want to overpay for the effect if it actually retails for less elsewhere. Does anyone know what the name of this levitation? or of any sellers of this levitation. I am looking to purchase this effect. but want to be able to compare prices before committing myself to the purchase. Thanks

In that video, I don't think the gimmick is under his shirt. However, after you have 50 posts, you will be able to inquire/purchase these type of effects here on the Café.

You can buy on it on eBay search under magic stage illusion
I think you have to be about 150b -160b person to fit in the gimmick.

I agree with Jim, you are way off on the method, and that girl was more like 100 lbs. or less. I would think it all depends on what the device is built for as far as weight goes. As you are watching a oriental couple, some Orientals are not as tall western people. I would ask a lot of questions before purchasing an illusion like this. If they will not give you creditable requirements to perform the illusion, I would pass on this, or you may be stuck with an illusion you cannot perform because of you or assistants stature.

This you will have to have a set of stage curtains for your backdrop as well. So that increases the price substantially.

That price quote sounds more then in line with what is involved in making this type of illusion.

Bill...why on earth would you need stage curtains??? This is similar to the Bob Brown and Brenda suspension illusion of MANY years back. I'm not if Yogano has it in his book with his design.

You can find on YouTube: Bob Brown and Blenda levitation (Brenda misspelled!)
If I remember wel I saw them for the first time at FISM Brussels.
Later Bob Brown offered it for about 10.000 USD.

Jei Min principle different then Yogano....I know both in details!

Yogano version is more complicated in the mechanical and the weight of the assistant doesn't matter.

Totally agree with you, Mr Cahyo ))))
