How is your experience with the "Glorpy" Gimmick? I have it but had never done it in public cause I don´t really know if the reaction it gets is good enough. What do you think about it? The one I have is from Royal Magic.

Antonio2030,

I have sent you a PM with the email address of the Glorpy expert "The Great XAVIER".

Enjoy!

Like a Zombie in miniature, you either perform it well enough to make it convincing, or you give it away with poor handling.

Bob, thank you very much. I got it and I'm gonna ask him about those vintage Glorpys. I'm thinking maybe this could be a good effect to combine with "creature" or "parasite" which had been discussed with good acceptance, in the Spooky and Bizarre forum: Like producing a little creature from the silk and then taking it out and showing it.

I've used it as part of another routine and it went over very well. Never used it stand alone, but judging from the reaction I get when using it in the other routine, I'd say it plays very well.

I love Glorpy/Hyrum. In my late teens that was my favorite trick. One of the routines I try to do is try to catch him. Hands in curved position. Both palms facing each other. The ends of your hands, opposite of the thumbs go on the silk. When Glorpy is a few inches try to catch him bringing your hands off the silk. Each time you should miss him.

There was a time when I did this at banquets. Rather than Glorpy, it was a shy rabbit trying to appear. The cloth moved but he was just too fast. However, the only proof I ever produced that he was really ever there were a few black olive pits that most viewers were willing to accept as "rabbit tracks" found under the silk. LOL

(For some reason, the olive pits never came with the trick! An oversight, I'm sure. But I help where I can!)

I forget who it was who had a glorpy performance video on the internet a couple of years ago. It was impressive because the fellow activated the "creature" by using a variety of contact points rather than just a single point. Thus, while glorpy rose and fell, the magician's hands were able to flow over the silk and remain in constant motion. It was beautiful and deceptive.
