Hello Everyone,

I'm sorry if this post has already been made, but I figured it might be a good source for inspiration for new members to the Café', as well as refreshing for people who have been into dove magic for a long time. My question is...

How many different dove effects can be listed? In other words, for new magicians looking at this for inspiration or new ideas, maybe this can offer them a list of what has been overdone, and which might seem new and refreshing... also, what effects should NOT be stolen...

Dove in Balloon
Dove on Cane
Dove Split
Dove from ball of Playdoh - JASON BYRNE'S - DON'T STEAL
Dove on Cards
Dove from Silk
Mechanical Dove to real Dove - DAN SPERRY'S - DON'T STEAL IT
Dove from fire

Any more thoughts guys?

Dove from Tissues,
Dove from Streamer,
Dove from Newspaper,
Vanishing Cane to Silks to Dove (ie. as taught by Tony Clark on his instructional video)
Toss Appeareance Several different ways (Flame, Silk, Vanishing Candle, etc,)
Chaveuz book talks about Slydini using a couple of silks being tied into an Orgami Dove and tossing silks to change into dove.
Dove Pan
Bob Sanders (Cafe Grammar Host) uses two (2) Chalet Doves to Rabbit and has them vanish from one and appear in other (Check with Him to see if it is original to him and can be used).
Be remembered for performing what looks like MAGIC, not skill.

I like to do a dove production following my torn and restored newspaper... Once I show the newspaper completely restored, I crumble it up and produce a dove.

I hope this helps...

Here's a few from my old competition act of 1998-2000: Apple to Dove, Mask to Dove, Gloves to Dove, Smoke Bubble to Dove, Newspaper Cone/Liquid to Dove, Knife/Streamers to Dove, Knife Dove Split.

Since then I've added a Rose to Dove.

Also, don't forget the vanishing dove cage made popular by Channing Pollock, Norm Neilson, and Proline (Cliff Wiggs).

I also perform the "Gemini Cage", which is the Doves/Cage to Girl. Not to be confused with Greg Frewin's Dove/Cage to Girl.

.....I'm sure I'll think of more later, but this is what came to the top of my head right away.

See the "Quantum Bender 3.0" trailer here...

See the "Energy Bender" trailer here...

See the "Table of Death" in Las Vegas trailer here...
