Here's a link to the annotated album; [url]https://imgur.com/a/fm6Fo[/url]

Looking forward to expanding this kit soon. Always looking for new ideas if anybody would like to chat via email.


[b]The Box.[/b]
An old box, hand aged and stained. I actually picked this up from a dollar store. With a little bit of time and elbow grease, it's completely different. With some mild aging by means of scraping and scratching, it appears to be much older than it is. Take your time, make each change deliberately. Tell a story.

This package was assembled to compliment a home-brew, horror themed RPG held after dark, in our gaming Café.


[b]The Contents.[/b]
When the box is opened, a number of objects are visible. When presenting, this is done with the lid facing the performer.


[b]The Fit.[/b]
I hand picked each object to fit in the box. Most of the items were gathered from my local flea market. The contents even have that 'old smell' which I think really adds to it. Doesn't feel 'store bought'.


[b]The Deck.[/b]
A custom made tarot-sized deck of only two cards, repeated twenty times. One, life. One, death. This deck is primarily used in an Out of This World effect. Each card has been aged by hand. In the right hands, this deck is a knockout routine. Looks very authentic.


[b]The Bible and the Note.[/b]
A Bible I picked up at the local flea market that served as the inspiration for the entire performance. The note (spelling mistake included) was typewritten by me to accompany it. Spectators are first asked to read the dedication inside the Bible, then, the note, then, Peter 5:8.


[b]The Silverware.[/b]
All found at a local flea market. The keys are magnetic and begging for an earth magnet routine. The spoon is not, however, and makes a very convincing effect when the keys move from over it, without the spoon moving at all.


[b]Laid out, the contents.[/b]
A box, a note, a spoon, a couple keys, a bundle of cards, a bible, a tin, some dice, an envelope.

Using these objects, the following effects can be performed:

Magician's Choice Force
Out of This World
PK Ring

Is the key suitable for the Haunted Key effect?

Thank you for sharing this.

This is a brilliant idea, to post what you have that you're working on. I may just do this also myself!

The use of the nonmagnetic spoon as a convincer is a great idea.

You've transformed a Dollar Store item into a thing of beauty. Its contents allow us to pre imagine a number of amazing tales about to be spun.

Thank you for sharing your efforts wiyth us.
