Hey,

I have recently cut a few things from my act because I am switching from doves to a smaller type of bird, and I cant use any cigarettes where I will be preforming. Because of the change and the old effects that are no longer possible for me I wanted to finally add some sunglasses effects to my act. I already do the vanishing sunglasses from Pitman. I wanted to do a few more productions with the glasses. I appear on stage with the glasses and shortly after they are taken and vanished in mid air but I want to have them reappear maybe 2 times later in the act. I am looking for methods to have them appear on my face. I am sure I could think up a few productions away from the face so lets make this appearances on the face. I don't know if this has been done before, if it has the location of the method would be great, if not, maybe you would all like to join me in some creative thinking.

Also if there were any magicians who worked with sunglasses in their acts I would love to know so I can check out the acts for a little inspiration.

Thanks in advance,

DJ

Try combining the glasses with a Topit.

Another idea might be the Seance hand as performed by Copperfield in the Bermuda Triangle tv special.

Lee,

I have never heard of the seance hand. Can you tell me what effect it gives? And to produce glasses on the face I don't quite understand how a topit would do any good


Thanks,

DJ

DJ,

my bad! I skimmed through your post in the early hours of the morning and missed the emphasis on the production as opposed to the vanish! A Topit of course would be ideal to help with a vanish! (Although it could still be used to make a production easier too!).

Check out something like "Handz Up" by Hottrix (there are other Seance Hands on the market too).

I have PM'ed you too!
Yours Magically,
Lee Alex

Yes it is on video..All FISM is recorded and shown on Japanese T.V..Many Magi record it off the tube..The trick is to befriend a resident of Japan..Or seek someone out at a convention..I have a friend who I trade tapes with..Cordially,Howard

Tpoas also has methods for sunglass productions and vanishes in his recent lecture notes. I ahve a set here. You may try his website and contacting him that way and see about getting a set. It is great reference information and may be of use to you.

Sorry. As always my fingers type faster then the keyboard can keep up. It is Topas. Or the magic of Topas and Roxanne.

Try showing a paper bag empty. Place the bag over your head. Make the glasses vanish some type of fast and flashy way. Take off the paper bag with you wearing the glasses.

I can just think of the presentation and not the secret this moment.

I didn't know Topas had his work with sunglasses in lecture form. Thanks for the information Kyle. I enjoyed his act and must admit if I had to come up with something using sunglasses I would of never conceived half his ideas. Super stuff!

DJ: I am not sure as I know I got his lecture notes a few years back when he did his full stage show (simply incredible) and his lecture for the SAM national convention. I have a set of these notes and in it he talks and shows a few basic methods for singlass manipulation. My only advice is that you could get it directly through him by possibly sending an e-mail from his website. I am sure he could get you a copy.

Awww I found what I was looking for. It took a lot of research, but here is some information in which you may be able to contact Topas directly to acquire and ask about obtaining his lecture notes.

e-mail: topas@topasmagic.de
website: http://www.topasmagic.de

Office address:
Topas
Asangstr. 220
70329 Stuttgart
Germany

Phone: +49 - 711 - 45 45 11
Fax: +49 - 171-53-93 357

In the lecture notes, which are called "Topas: Presentation Secrets" he covers off on several sunglass idea such as:

- SunGlass - effects : Covering why sunglasses work well for manipulation
- kind of sunglasses to use and variations of them
- Appearing sunglasses - Techniques for producing them
- Back Palm of sunglasses
- Back and front palm sunglasses
- Appearing sunglasses on the face

I hope this is of help to some of you for your research into this area of manipulation. If you have any questions or thoughts, just let me know.
