I think it's somewhat of the same thing, but the reason I like Adrew is cause if you read some of the plans on his site they all can easly be made and they don't cost that much to make.

Michigan builder and engineer Harry Colestock worked with one of Franz's early neon through girl props. I am not sure to what extent, but if you can find contact information for him, he could probably be of some help.

There is a big difference between the Mayne (light moves from side to side with cover) & the neon thru body (more like a impaled done standing)

Marco Tempest has a version with one neon .
Franz Harary uses a pitchfork with 3 neons .
I don't think they are for sale but you can always ask them....

I've seen something similar to Franz Harrary's, but the stockis never removed. the upside is that it makes it doable with anyone. I believe both Klamm and tilford carry them.

I couldn't even figure out what you guy's were talking about until Franz was mentioned. The Pitchfork isn't even made with neon .... that's the funny thing about it. There's only one of them and I'm pretty sure it's not for sale.
The other version known as the Lightbulbs thru Girl, is performed with stocks around your assistant or a slender person from the audience. I've got one that was built by Owen Redwine ... and we use that thing all the time. Sommers has made plenty of them and has it all figured out . Give him a call and order one .. tell him Chez sent ya ..

Well chez, you're right and wrong.....lol, Franz's Lighted Trident, (which he calls "neons") isn't actually neon. You're also right that the trick isn't available, in fact like many of his other original illusions, he's had to put the "smackdown" on a few individuals attempting to build it.

But there are actually 2 of them, one in 110V and one in 220v for over seas gigs.

Take Care

If you're looking to use actuall neon, one of Steinmeyer's books has a plan for the passage of a girl through a row of neon tubes. I beleive the book is "Device and Illusion".

Here's a link to a trick called "Four bulbs thru middle of girl." http://www.tilfordillusions.com/bulbs.html I think this is similar to the one that Chezaday is referring to.

Dear Erich,

Bryan Lee told me that you had a "Walking through a steel plate" illusion using the same principle than my "Walking through a Mirror" (Orpheus) which I performed at the Magic Castle in February. I was very surprised to hear that because I came up with this principle a couple of years ago and I had never seen anybody use it this way before.

I believe you were in the audience one night but we seem to have missed each other. If you don't mind I would like to talk to you about it. Could we pm each other?

Regards,

D

Sure, feel free to PM me.

I designed my walk thru illusion back in 99 before I went to Malaysia. It was finished in late 99 and debuted in 2000. The places magicians might have seen it performed would be the castle or SAM convention 2003.

I slightly remember seeing your show, I can't say I remember your mirror trick. I remember you opened with Spirit cabinet, and did a arm disection, any other details escape me at the moment.
