I recently bought the Zombie flash gimmick. The description says "vanish a zombie in a flash of fire" however the instructions only tell you how to produce the fire. What vanish should I use with this gimmick? Help is greatly appreciated!

I simply drop the cloth over the gimmick with the ball still still atatched.If done correctly it looks like the ball vanishes in a flash. If you nead more help on the handling of this feel free to PM me or send me an email or if your going to FISM I can show you how I do it.

That's actually the one I was thinking of trying, but then do you recommend a ditch of ball and gimmick?

You can do that but I don't. my thinking is that the ball just vanished right infront of there eyes so I don't have to over proof that fact by trying to get rid of some thing to show the colth "even more emoty". I simply put the cloth with everything away and go on with the show.

Gen Grant suggest as well as the original sold by Tannen's years ago, to ditch the ball only prior to the vanish. Then set off your smoke pot and the drop one corner of the cloth. The gimmick is flicked along the forearm. Show cloth and take you bow.

Now you can use a manipulation table to ditch or a topit. You did not comment on your show attire, so no further suggestions can be given. Most instructions gives these suggestions. Sorry you received poor instructions, I hope that does not reflect the quality of you gimmick.

The gimmick I recieved is fine. As far as performance attire, I'm either going to be in a button down shirt and slacks, perhaps with a jacket, or I might even do it in a tux. So I'm thinking a manipulation table might be best.

Thanks for your help!
