Are there any one-man illusions that are not expensive; approx. $2000 price range, or even better if they are possible to make, (like if plans are available for it).

Having stagehands is not an issue, but an assistant.... Almost every illusion I know is either way too expensive, cheap but not able to build due to rights, or require an assistant.

*Meaning illusions not illusionettes such as; Floating Table, Snow, etc..
Also, nothing an audience member is involved in; Suspension 3001.

Hi there M.Frymus, yes theres many one man illusions out there, but to give you the best advice that I think will help you, I'm going to say seeing your from canada here and not far from me actually, with out selling myself to you I'm going to say Peter from master of illusions has a few that might be in your price range as well as he's close to you. Not to mention hes a member here on the Café' so I'm sure he would be more then willing to help recommend something for you. Heres a link to his sight, check out say beside yourself or say head rush to just name a few. http://www.masterofillusions.ca/products.htm
See if this helps get your wheels in gear. ENJOY

Magically Yours Rick Anderson
Grew up near one of the greatest minds in magic the late Stewart James, in a town called Wallaceburg just 15 mins from Courtright where James could be found, time and time again he would inspire me to always be creative and just love all magic.

Shrink Boy Illusion is reasonably priced this is an effect where you make a boy or assistant shrink to a small size then restore them. The flying barstool levitation is also a great effect. Both these illusions are priced in 2000- 2500.00 range. Pm me if I can be of further assistance

This requires and assistant to do, as you mentioned. Not what I am looking for. Im looking for solo illusions.

Still looking at the master of illusions website. I don't really see anything that interested. Most of what I see are more illusionettes. Only thing I see is the 'walking through a mirror'

Peter's Walking through a Mirror Illusion looks very good, & at a reasonable price too.

Thru Steel from Smoky Mountain Magic is very good.

Shrink Boy can also be performed whereby the magician is compressed.

Magellan Levitation might be an option if you are into Levitations.

The other option is to look at the Andrew Mayne site - he has a lot of one man ideas.Solo X contains his A Frame & Shrink Boy effects.

Hi M.Frymus

Have you thought about Nathon Burton's Rubberneck Illusion, it is a very effective one man illusion that packs small and plays big. We happen to have one in the Used Magic section of our website at http://www.aptricks.com/used_magic.php and it is right around your price range. Let me know if you would like to see a video of this illusion performed.

BTW, I'm also from Oakville. Let me know if you have any questions.

PM'd you back.

Where can I find more information on this illusion? 'Shrink Boy.' Perhaps a video of it being performed.

I'm still browsing at the other things you guys mentioned.

Andrew Mayne's "Solo X" is a good book for finding such illusions.

I meant more specific.
'CYCLONE - Crawl through a compact disc' That makes no sense. I don't get it at all!

Is there someone who has the full explanation of how the routine goes?

People may not be agree but I'm sure that Andrew Mayne's IN HALF has potential for what you looking for. Plus, if you have some budget, you can build it more solid.
I might build it for myself one day.

I was also thinking of that Johnny. But, I'm doubtful of it.

I found some neat stuff on youtube. One of an illusion which the magician is tied/chained up in a box and needs to escape before the spikes fall. Its like the Greg Frewin escape.
Do I need permission for this? If I do, I will buy it only if it does not require it to be built by an authorized builder. I can then build it myself. Do you think this would be a good idea?

*I don't think you do, since I have a book with plans and there is a similar escape in there. Just that it is in a closed box instead of in the open. But, still the same pretty much.

Check out Dan Wolf's "This end Up" at Smokey Mountain Magic. This is great!
Also, Houdini's Rope is a great one man illusion that uses audience volunteers. http://www.richhillsillusionshop.com/houdinisrope.htm
