I made up a way to make my leg dissapear. You just hold a blanket or towel in front of your leg for a split second and when you take it away you just see your pant leg hanging there. Your leg can come back just as fast. with misdirecion you wouldn't even need a towel it happens so fast. Anyway I need an effect, just the leg dissapearing by itself is not enough, can anybody think of an effect that would use this?

This is my first post.

How about cutting your leg off, setting it aside while balancing against something, or standing on crutches so you won't fall. Think of it as a self amputation. You could make a fake leg.. I won't go into too much detail since I actually have done this before. I was going to sell it, but I haven't made it look good enough when performing it. Its more of a gag. After you cut your leg off, you may put it back on by pretending to use a large sewing needle to stitch it back on. Smile

The above idea is all yours. If someone else can come up with a great way of performing the effect and make it truly work , that's fantastic. P.S. my fake leg is sitting in my closet. Smile

David Copperfield did a simmilar trick like that. He held a towle in front of his leges. First the right leg dissapeard. He lowerd the towle and then the left leg dissapeard. He lowerd the towle again and when he raised the towle, both of his leges had dissapeard
