Instead of couloring the **** with a black marker: Take some foam and glue and give the doll a pair of shoe.
The gimmik will stick through and remains invisible 100%

I would avoid adding things to the Haunted Doll. I've performed it dozens of times and there's nothing for them to discover. By adding things, it begins to scream prop/trick. IMHO.

I would tend to agree, however if it works for you, cool Smile

When the doll is left as is, people will see the metal posts and some will assume magnets are at work (this has already happened twice to me).

Thanks for sharing that. May I ask how you present the Haunted Doll? I think if it's done as a trick, then their mind naturally goes to solutions ( sometimes they're even correct;-)

As mentioned by others, I think having it on a cord around your neck and performing it only after they make comment is the way to go. Never mention magic/being a magician.

I use a flat black paint to dab on the metsl ends. I airbrush so I have special waterbased stuff that sticks to metal & stays flat to help hide the pin ends. If I didn't have my paint I would use some flat black oil based paint.....but nothing on the special place.

I like the idea with flat black paint. I just may give that a shot.

How about using it as a revelation prop? Maybe put some cards on the table then make it rise when it is over the card?

Can we keep on topic please. Maybe your doctor can prescribe Viagra. Might wanna mention your wood fetish too.

Ordered this from Penguin on Friday but got a email today saying they were out of stock. Is there any stores in the US that have it in stock?

HAHAHA! You know a friend once said to me told me "When I was 20, I couldn't bend my (wood) at all. When I was 40 I could bend it 10 degrees. Now that I'm 60 I can bend it 30 degrees."
"Jeez Dude, what's you're point?" I asked him.
He replied "Just think how strong I'll be in another ten years!"

Yes Gordon, They are most probably sold out. We, System 6, completely sold out this past week, meaning all of our top carriers have also Sold out. Of course some magic shops, may still have, we had to take some of our personal copies to put up. We are on back-order and will be re-stocking our store and everyone one else as well...as of next week..

Seems the Haunted Doll really "Stood up" to the hype jiji.

Love, Hugs, and Applesauce.

I have 3 of the burlap sacks that I bought from Hobby Lobby that's shown in an eatlier post. But I like the one I made and distressed better. So if anyone wants a bag, please PM me with your address. They are free for the asking. I would appreciate that you also post here so the first 3 will be shown and there will not be tons of people PMing me.

P.S. But don't show tour address here, just say PM'd you.
