This has been discussed before. Try doing a search. Or better yet PM magic reza. He's a member of this Café.

If you have the cash, check out Devils Reflection.

Peter Loughran is a very good illusion builder and magician. He has a name here at the Café. You could try PM'ing him. He is always very helpful.

You can find a simple instruction in Andrew Mayne book, I think in "Solo X" or "Illusion F/X". I saw in jis site he is going to publish a new book mid July and he has a picture of walking thru a mirror.
Look at his site: http://www.andrewmayne.com

The most exciting thing I got to walk through was a wall of Dunlop tyres.

A huge wall of tyres was made by members of the audience on stage and a screen was placed either side which allowed the shadow to be seen.

There were no bases, traps, mirrors or of course false tyres (lol!). This was a great success but a pain to get the R&D correct.

The illusion was only performed once as it was a special for a launch. The huge platform we still have in the depot. Maybe I would use it again. I have an idea for walking through a wall of people who are all bound together with leather straps - sounds like a lot of fun!

Sounds like a bondage video ....LOL.
But personally I think walking thru a group of people may not stand out to good effect. By the way I saw your latest DVD on costume changing is out Alex. Nice work. Bye.

Thanks plainman007 - but "Quick Change" is a book, not a DVD!!

The idea of walking through the people is only an idea, and as you say the effect may not be as good as the concept maybe sounds.

There is reference to the Houdini method of "Walking thru' a Wall" in more than one book, some of them actually giving the method too.

Paul Daniels re-enacted something similar many years ago ( with the same method) by "walking" through a wall of china mugs! Actually as I remember he was laying down and was slid through on a trolley.

JC Sum has a couple of illusions of this genre which are worth looking into.
Yours Magically,
Lee Alex
