I am looking for the effect where you put a gentleman with a jacket behind a curtain with your assistant and when you drop the curtain she is wearing the jacket with the ropes on the outside. What is this effect called? Where can I find it? Thanks

As I am in the work, I have no book near me, but I think you can find the solution in one of Tarbels books, where is special rope trick, where you are tied up and you can undress or put on jacket or vest Smile

Sounds like the classic Spirit Cabinet to me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbPfK6K7LJE

I think you are right Lyndel. Copperfield did in one of his specials and Juliana Chen did in Monaco this illusion. Harry Willard and his daughter Frances did the Spirit Cabinet for years but after Harry died Frances was doing the effect with her husband Glenn Falkenstein.

Best,

The effect is called The Gypsy Mystery Rope (tie) Escape.
You can find it on Falkenstein And Willard's DVD vol 1 (demonstration) & vol 2 (explanation)
Here a clip of Dani Lary performing it:

Hope this helps,

Oliver,

Yes, you can buy this (cabinet included) from Puchinger in Germany.

John Calvert also sells his spirit cabinet routine (with the cabinet) but this is different from the gypsy mystery rope.
