Oh my .. that is gold. Have to work hard at not copying Brian's performance.

If you do imitate Brian--I'm sure he will sue!

Thread has been dead for a while, but I have a quick question. Is the method of David Merry's Accupuncture trick the same as Michael Schwabe's voodoo doll trick? I do not know the method for either, so I ask before I spend $250 on the presentation of the same trick as a $35 item.

I mean, no one has to tell me the method, I would just like to know if it's the same. It's a big decision.

?? I see David Merry's Accupuncture listed at $75, and I didn't know the puppets were still available (unless you have a line on a used one). So you're saying if they're the same, you'll buy the glove and then make a puppet?

I actually own a puppet. The glove gives a completely different presentational angle. Once my wifes forgives me for the puppet I might purchase accupuncture.

I was just going by the price on here ( http://www.davidmerry.com/store.html ) where it said $35. Michael Schwabe still makes the puppets, and they can be ordered by emailing him.

Good to know about the puppets.
Strangely, it lists for $75 elsewhere on his site; but the $35 paypal link works so....

This was a trick called Voodoo Puncture Puppet by Michael Schwabe who worked at Magic Inc. and was also a puppeter, I believe he has since passed away. This was only available through Magic Inc. and is no longer available. He came up with an effect of a Voodoo Puppet that you would put your hand in, let the spectator feel your hand inside and then proceed to push a large hat pin through the center of the puppet and your hand. They could then continue pulling the need and attached thread out while feeling your hand inside! It was a cool idea, they usually now sell in the $400-$500 if you can find one, Michael hand made each one, and they are all a little different looking. The best person using one with simply the BEST routine is Brian Brushwood with his Mr. Happy Pants routine. You can see it here!

Hope that helps


The rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated.

Is this THE Michael Schwabe, or the Zombie Michael Schwabe?

Michael, love the voodoo puppet and have wanted to order one for some time now.
Currently, I am saving my pennies for Prof BC's latest release, but I foresee contacting you in the near future to discuss an order.
Glad to hear you are still around.
Zombie or human.

My Voodoo Puppet Puncture arrived from Michael Schwabe on Friday. Beautiful work and great illusion.

Michael is charging $200 plus shipping and worth every penny. He worked with me each step as he built it and sent pics of progress. Very fast turn around and priority shipping with tracking. Excellent effect and service from a guy that was reportedly dead. Smile

Any chance you can post a picture? I would love to see your final product - the effect looks like tons of fun!
