Does anyone know where I can buy a sword trough neck illusion? I want it to go like you balance all of your weight on the point of a sword....everything is going perfect for a few seconds then something goes terribly wrong and the swords impales your throat. I think that would be sweet! Blood flying everywhere! hahah lol. Anyway does anyone know where I could get something like this?

Check out Dexion's performance on World's Greatest Magic 4. It's pretty much exactly as you describe (w/o blood). This was custom made for them.

The problem with typical sword thru neck is the "stability" of the sword. This can be a problem even if your not planning what you are. Anything like this would have to be made custom made (think Impaled) for the user, plus you would be copying another's original effect. Sorry.

Abbott's Magic Company in Colon, Michigan still sells it, I believe.

Check out 'Magic Stage Illusions, Special Effects and Trick Photography' edited by Albert A. Hopkins. It's got a nice illusion that could be modified.

Go to http://www.maggievalleymagic.com . They might not have it on the website but all you have to do is call them. It is around $120. Tell them Tyler sent you.

Just a bit of a 'wet blanket'. It seems to me like AT THE MOMENT such effects are going to cause an audience to POSSIBLY be reminded of the actual 'head choppings' in the Middle East. May not be the wisest effects for the time being. Smile

Or...that might be to the advantage of the performer, having a timely factor in the public consciousness. It could even be performed as a "protest" to the barbaric activities of terrorists in Iraq.
