I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this question, but I figured it was worth a shot. I am working on a parlor/small stage routine that I've been bantering around in my head for a few years. I'm probably going to be working on it for a few more... But before I start going down that route, I need to know if something I have planned is feasible or not. I want to end with a quick change into a tuxedo.

I've seen multiple performances of this effect, on Youtube and in Vegas, but I'm not sure how easy it is. Since it comes at the end, I want to make sure it wouldn't affect my ability to do some specific moves (notably a little sleeving and use of a topit). Does anyone know where I could start learning the basics of this effect to judge if I could do it or not?

Thanks!

My experience runs in the other direction- starting with a tuxedo and ending with another costume which can easily be worn under a tux. Making a break-away removable tux was not a problem. Your problem is going to be covering up a tux with some other costume that you can perform in (while wearing the tux underneath it). This is based on the idea that it is easier to shed a costume than put one on, so you basically shed them in layers.

If you agree with this concept, then you can easily find out what you can perform wearing some costume over a tux and practicing in it. If it works out for you, then turn the outer costume into one which breaks away and can be easily shed and you are on your way.
