Dear fellows magicians I would like to ask you to give me a suggestion about an effect . Imagine a bizarre mentalism routine where to the end you must to reveal yourself like the devil .Eugen Burger has a bizarre routine where the spectator must to sign an agreement with the devil but at the end the spectator find that the magician is the devil .
I would like very much as in that moment when I reveal myself that I am the devil , something to happened with my face or with my eyes . I thought a lot at Borodin face but is not so practical . I thought at Meteors of Juan Mayoral to put two led near my eyes and to light on at the end .I don't want to do bionic eyes because for parlor is not so visible.
So could you give me a practical ideea?
Perfect an ideal this is to change my face very scare Smile

Thank you

Biokinesis is very good but is not so visible for parlor magic .

What if you painted your face with like a devil image in uv paint. Then you could open up a box you have been pulling stuff out of but this time the uv light will be on and it will reveal what ever is painted on your face with uv paint.... You could even leave the box open and have the light hidden by a shade that is slowly opening revealing letting out parts of light at a time and making it a slow change. Kind of hard to explain but it was just a thought.

Have fun

Excellent suggestion and theoretically it would work. UV is used for similar purposes in theme parks and other venues. Eg. The old magic Island seance room in Newport Beach, CA. The UV make up may require that you overall look would need to be stylized. Experiment.

I turn into a demon in my act.. See avatar.
If you want something visible on stage.. You need something very visible (I know - stating the obvious).. But I don't think a uv gag would be as intense an effect as you are going for.

How about a well made prosthetic mask, gloves and teeth. Hide them behind a tall object (easel with a painting?). Find a reason for moving it closer to the audience (to let them see the painting better etc) at which point you step behind it to move it closer. Hidden away you can now put on your devil's face.

Continue to talk in your normal voice, hidden to the audience, covering your face by carrying the prop in front of you.

Come out from behind it with your back to the audience, admire the painting maybe, change your voice to draw attention to yourself (or start laughing like a maniac) and then slowly turn around as if to say "I've caught you out".

You might want to check out "Return of the Werewolf" in The Wizards' Journal #4. The devil would be even easier - much less hair.
