Hey guys,

For as long as I have been doing magic (a little over two years now) I have never gotten dressed up for a performance. I just wore jeans and a shirt; and, quite frankly, I hated it. I have wanted a full suit for a while, but I didn't think it was smart to spend $400 or so on a suit that probably wouldn't fit me for more than six months, as I have been growing quite a bit lately. However, this past week I decided to go ahead a buy one.

I have performed twice with it on, and I can't begin to tell you how much of a difference it makes in my performance. A suit just feels right... I like being dressed up and performing magic. Not only that, but I find that my audience is MUCH more attentive, including friends that would always try and ruin a trick (you all know the type). I actualy feel like a magician. I wish I would have gotten one sooner, despite the cost.

I love all of the extra pockets too, Smile

It's true...clothes make the man. Just make sure you dress as you. In other words, if a suit makes you feel like a magician, it will show in your presentations. If you don't like how you look, and if you don't feel right, the audience will know. That's why I still like my tux. It makes me feel like a magician, and it helps my performance.
It takes some magicians years to figure this out, so you are ahead of the game! Smile

I know exactly how you feel. It is interesting to see how the clothes can change the way you carry yourself. I can feel the difference when wearing a suit. I sit different, I walk different and as a magician you do move different. I'm glad you like this and I hope that anything that can improve our magic will be well accepted.

I see you are from Colorado also, I hope to meet you sometime soon. Check out mile high society of magicians, there is a show coming up next week November 8, hope to see you there. Smile

I tend to vary my look. When I perform casually (which is 80% of my work) I just dress casually. Nice jeans (by that I mean fairly new, not worn), a nice shirt (usually dark colored button up) and nice shoes. I have one suit, and I wear it for more formal affairs.

I'm still "looking" to find that perfect suit or apparel that when I see it, I just know it's me.

I envy those of you that have "found" your persona in how you dress to perform. It's been tough for me!

I could have gotton a couple of high range Collectors Workshop props instead of my suit. Not bragging, just saying I think it was money well spent. You get a little more respect when you look your best.

Daniel,

You made the right move. If you feel right, then you will do that much better a job with your act. But, more importantly, your audience will take you much more seriously, as a serious performer. They may not even be able to say why, but they will!

As the old adage goes: You don't get a second chance to make a first impression.

Cheers,
Peter Marucci
