Does someone know about this Illusion, and how I can build it? Chair is empty, a sheet is over the chair.. at some point the sheet is lifted, the girl is there... later the reverse happens. She sits down, sheet goes over her, lady is "gone". Please point me in the right direction.

Thank you very much. That is precisely what I needed. I ordered and received the eplans. Now I would love to brainstorm with someone who knows about these methods, as I need to modify, and the peek may not be my best option.

I know we can't discuss the solution here, but perhaps we can PM or something.

Let me explain further what I would like to accomplish, and perhaps you will have some ideas. This is for a dance routine. I am a magician, but I'm also a dance instructor. I would like to do this for a performance Christmas 2014.
The idea of the performance is basically this (I'll spare you the dancing parts) guy misses girl, guy sobs over chair, girl materializes under chair.. dance, dance... girl returns to chair.. girl is gone.

Your input is greatly appreciated.

My immediate response is to not use the chair for both effects. If she is produced from the chair then at routine's end when she again sits on it it will telegraph that something is going to happen and put "heat" on the prop. If she instead were produced via a different piece of furniture on stage it will give far greater impact to the vanish.

Just spit-balling here, but if boy sweeps items that are painful reminders of girl into an empty trunk (tip trunk) which is then closed and stood upright, the girl can then appear from said trunk. Then after the pas de deux she goes to the chair for the finish.
