I found the Topsy Turvy Bottles but no Frankenstein on the site.

Perhaps they sold out already????

Yep. Hocus Pocus only had 2 for sale.

Go to the Tricks and Effects section and you will see a thread where you can order Frankie for the maker directly.

Can the Topsy Turvy Bottles be performed close to the audience? Like in a Kid Birthday show in a house?

No, far too dangerous.

Here's a review on Wack-o-Magic Innovation and Michael by Paul Osborne

MIKE MOSHER
I first met Mike Mosher in the late eighties when he rescued me by stepping up to manage my shows at Rocky Point. Mike was hired as just a cast member but I soon realized his abilities far out weighed the young man I initially hired to be the magician and company manager. From those early days Mike went on to perform and manage our shows at Enchanted Village and Six Flags. He is a Renaissance man in every sense of the word. I could always count on him to bring the “extra cheese” to any theatrical production we worked on together. As an example, before I could get costumes and make up planned he showed up like this for our Six Flags Halloween show, Freaky Follies! A look that was better than I had planned!

As a magic builder he fabricated this Genii plan, The Hand of The Wolf, that we featured one month in that magazine.

From costumes to props to scripting to performance, Michael can do it all.

Although a marvelous performer is many ways, he has also turned his talents as a make-up artist into a full time profession with many movies and well known actors and actresses as clients. I am excited to announce his new magic manufacturing company, Wack-O Magic! His first two releases are terrific, and if you don’t mind a review, I can tell you his Topsy Turvey Soda bottles are the best I have seen,
and I have seen them all from P&L to Grant’s Black Cherry versions. His are better, current, realistic and improved over all the others, and the best news is the price. As a great audience participation trick, this one can’t be beat!

I love the Strat-o-spheres as a prop. I’ve never understood why it wasn’t called the stop light trick, but who cares, Mike made a new version that is totally logical. Remember in the movies how they assembled Frankenstein? Now you can, too. Yes, it’s the monster that can’t be assembled, or can he? Like the movie, which was not a Halloween release, this prop can be featured year round! The other cool thing is that this Frankenstein is a cute little guy so he’s perfect for kid shows. Another new and clever magical prop from Mike Mosher.

Finally, Mike has the capability to make up custom feet for your illusions.
I am sure you can look to more creative magic props from the fertile mind of Mike Mosher!

I received Frankenstein and was initially a little frustrated as a there was a small break in shipping. However, Michael communicated well with me, I glued the small piece back, and found the trick is a beautiful, custom-made and sleek bit of kit. I worried it might be fragile as the three pieces of the "monster" seem to be made of styrofoam. However, I can say, having dropped them a couple of times, that they are not fragile at all.

The pieces do clunk slightly in the tube and it might be worthwhile to put a little foam on the stand so that there isn't a noise when they "hit" the bottom of the tube (the surface of the stand). But I rigged a 1/2" thick foam pad on top of the stand, and it works like a charm. This is going to be a mainstay of any good Halloween show and may also be useful other times of the year. Well crafted and clever in design.

My congratulations to the designer and apologies for my initial criticisms, which were worked out with a little Crazy Glue.

There was an initial problem with my website.. due to a tiny typo... the contact information was being kicked back in the mail... grrr.

I've fixed that.. and the Topsy Turvey bottles.. and the mismade monsters.. and rubber fruit.. are all on my site for sale.

I have a couple of super fun things in the works.. ALL suitable for kids shows and adult entertianment. I'm going to try to put out some magic with some school show lessons.. without being preachy or corny or crappy.

Some stock items are on the way.. including the world's biggest Devil's Hank and some other props that haven't been around or have been, but haven't been well made.

I'm going to try to make www.Wack-o-magic the place to go for quality, well thought through magic props.

PS.. if there's something you want to have made.. or have an excpetional idea that's original.. let me take a crack at it.. I'm honest.. and I promise, If I can't make it well, better, or on time and on budget, I'll pass on it and save you any hassle or headache!!

This is almost ready to go.. I thought it was done, but I sent it to a friend for testing.. and he wants me to make ONE change.. and so I am. It should take most of the day, but it won't delay shipment! I'm waiting for ONE prop to arrive that's part of the TWO routines written by Walt Anthony that comes with it.. but I know they've shipped.. and will be here any moment now.

Makeupguy,

With regards to the Tricky Tiny Trash can, is it made of aluminum? I am concerned about denting it during transportation and packing. Does it come and can somesrot of protective lightweight carrying case/bag be made to protect the metal from denting?

Thank you very muhc.

It's zinc plated steel...

I'm not going to say that it's not dentable.. but it's a GARBAGE CAN.. if it gets a bit dented.. all the better.

You can order a fiber case for it from OMEGA cases...www.omegacase.com. I called around to MANY case companies, Omega beat the price of EVERYONE by far; they'd quoted me about $100 per case. I just didn't want to add $100 to the price of the prop for a case..

I'm looking into alternatives.. but I haven't come up with a reasonable priced case yet... for now they'll pack in a well padded cardboard box.. but I'm working on something better.

I know this is an old thread..but it has uncompleted conversations that needed tying up.

The Tiny Tricky Trashcan (avail from me or from Hocus Pocus) now COMES WITH A CASE.. Which is a HOMER BUCKET from Home Depot! It fits PERFECTLY in the bucket... with NO room for wiggle.. and you can stand on it to reach the top shelf in your magic room!!

Also.. I have exactly TWO mis-made Monsters left.. and there won't be any more... at least not for a VERY long time. I have other projects I want to make.. and they were time consuming to make.. with each monster taking more than a full day to make, paint, cut in three, re-paint, and do the final finish...

Hocus Pocus got most of the last of my stock on these...

The topsy turvey soda bottles are now for sale world wide.. in 7 different countries at magic shops!!! and a new MATCHING silkola is in the works too!!
