The DVD recommends using a black marker to help conceal the gimmick. For safety reasons, I am not sure if that is a good idea.


I did blacken my end's but I wish I wouldn't have.
The gimmick doesn't hold the color too well.
Which make's it stick out against the black background.
It looks better not doing anything to it.

You guys are making me broke! I just bought this! Smile


Ha, you want broke - come on over to Outlaw & Lebanon magic,that's soul selling territory......Lol Your gonna get your money's worth in reactions with your HD,worth every penny !!

I had some unplanned fun using Outlaw's Reflections & my Haunted Doll. Had 2 people use Reflections, 1 of the persons revelations was star which I drew on a piece of paper & showed,then the 2nd person I had the circle revelations & drew it around star & showed......they loved the Reflections book test, then I turned paper 180 with the drawing of the star inside the circle, now becoming a.......pentagram !

I asked if they believed in spirits & voodoo stuff, removed HD from necklace,placed on my hand & as I moved my hand towards the paper with pentagram on it HD started to rise & up full as I was over paper ! As I moved my hand away & back towards making it fall & rise Smile I then asked one of them to remove & crumple up paper & doll fell forward & over & onto table top. The other person picked it up,looked at it for a moment & then got freaked & tossed it back on table & backed up !! LoL A true "Kodak moment" !!

I really love how versatile the HD has become for me !

I've had a lot of comments to the effect of "What is that thing? Is that like Blaire Witch or something? "

Anybody else here getting that?

I really should scrutinize it more before asking this question, but...my vision is poor, does anyone have a tip for making sure you have it right side up when you start?

I guess you mean having the right side facing you.
My HD has a light color on one side verse dark on
the other side.This let's me know if I'm in the right orientation
to begin.

Same here on the poor vision. If there isn't already a distinguishing mark of some sort, just make one. Scratch it, mark it with a sharpie, whatever. Nobody will notice, it'll look like an imperfection. It's just sticks and string after all.

I still can't get this to stand straight. Only about 45 degrees. I have moved it around in my palm and tried different spots. Maybe the gimmick is angled incorrectly or inserted in the wood incorrectly. Any other advice?

You kind of have to use the right leg as leverage as it pushes into the padded part of your hand.

Colin Clive went nuts saying "It’s alive … it’s moving. It’s alive. It’s alive! It’s alive! It’s alive! It’s alive!"

And that was with only a little hand movement. It might be a film, but it illustrates a good pint. An inanimate object like Rogue's Haunted Doll doesn't have to stand fully erect for them to freak out. I think less is more. That's the way I do it.

Good point, but personally, causing the haunted doll to rise fully is a temptation I find impossible to resist.

Maybe intrduce him to a hot female HD might get him stand straight up........Smile

Seriously though, I had to play with sweet spots, doll placement & muscle control of my hand to get mine to stand all the way up. If I'm not on spot with all 3, it wont go all the way up straight without tilting my hand back s tad.......

Practice, trial & error -

If I may,I've been doing this effect with dolls & ink pens,for years!
Try reversing,place doll in upright position,with *alm extended,then change position of *alm.
This will help finding sweet spot,and let you know,how to do method!
Then you can reverse that,with a better understanding of how to perform!
Just my 2 cents!
If I revealed to much,please report to have removed!

Let's not forget tilting the entire arm a tad too. It's less conspicuous than the hand alone.

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%

Foam? As in styrofoam?

Sorry, I meant sponge.Cut 2 cylindric pieces of fine sponge out and glue them onto the feets of the doll; covering the gimmick - yet allows the secret working perfectly.
