If it breaks, Will I be able to find something else to substitute the gimmick or make my own gimmick with a different color?

I disagree. What can break is the "sticker" on the gimmick...you would have to buy a sheet of colored sticker and cut it out...shouldn't be that hard to do.

Or does the gimmick itself really broke?

Nice! Will be ordering mine soon. Hopefully the gimmick will be better than the ones from the previous batch.

Does anyone know where to get this in the UK? Magic Nevin have started selling it at a not so cool price of £64.99. That's a whopping £31 more (so almost twice the price) than the $49.99 Elusionist cost.

The UK often gets over charged or hit by a straight dollars to pound price but this is not cool at all!

That could be because of shipping cost and of coarse tax.
I went to order this last night and the postage was as much as the item. I thought OK, I'll see if there are a couple of other things I'd be interested in to make the postage worthwhile, but when I added them to the cart, the postage went through the roof. Had to cancel.

I did the same. Ordering direct from Ellusionist would have cost £95 plus 20% customs charges & £8 handling fee, brining it to a Stay Cold cost of £122!!!

No matter how good it is I'm pretty sure it's not worth that!

Stay Cool – Tobias Dostal

Product description : A refreshing trick in which your glasses will appear and change 2 times of colour ! A unique plot, is it worth the price asked and your consideration ? Let's find out.

Price and where to buy it : This is sold at $49.95 and you can find it in the Ellusionist store.

What you get : You get a very nice box with foam inside to protect the glasses and the gimmick provided. The glasses are standard black ones, they seem to really protect from the sun so you can easily use them ! The gimmick looks very cool and should last quite some time. However, I find that a part of it may break after intensive use. Maybe Ellusionist will consider do refills. The instruction video are very well shot and you get to learn everything you have to learn.

Teaser : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBhrY7ytbvY

The pros and the cons : Here is the core of my review, let's begin with the cons, as I will usually be doing, I prefer to keep the good things for the end.

THE CONS :
It's not a easy trick ! I thought at first that it would be quite easy to do but you will have to put some time into mastering the appearance with the gimmick on.
The final change will be quite difficult because you end in a very unatural position. Maybe a topit or a small item in your pocket so you will be able to clean yourself up.

THE PROS :
It's a unique plot in magic and you look very cool while doing it ! It changes from the usual "pick a card" I will find it. Hopefully, you don't have to scream "Wooooooooooo" every time you do it.
The whole thing feels quality, you don't feel ripped off at all. The box is very classy and the props are well made. I think it shoud last if you take care of it.
It's a quick and flash trick, you will be performing it as an opener because it will sell the fact you're a magician in the minds of the spectator.
I think that, with a little bit of imagination, you can come up with a much more easy handling of the trick. The fact you can chose which bits of the routine you want to do is also very nice, you can modulate the routine as you want.

Overall rating : If you have the money and that you like the effect, you won't be disappointed by "Stay Cool". The props are well made and the instructions are top class. However, you will have to put time and efforts into it if you want it to look as good as Tobias. 3/4 hearts.

As for the difficulty level, as I said, it's not very easy, 4/5 stars.

Similar products : I never saw anything like this, it's a unique plot and a very visual one !

I recently purchased and am loving this product, fits perfectly into my show. But while rehearsing before my show today the gimmick broke and I was wondering if there are any plans to sell back up gimmicks. I'd hate being on the road doing shows and have the gimmick break again.

You will also learn sleights like of concealment from this product. Good variations are available and very innovative ways are utilised to make the effect mystifying.

I've purchased this a few times now and I love it! Question for fellow owners... do you think a Raven would be adequate for the dirty work at the end of the color change? I wouldn't use it every time but, I think it could really lend itself to the trick. I ask as someone that doesn't own a Raven but, I'm familiar enough to know it might work.

Here's an older clip of me taking a stab at one of the other tricks included. -> https://www.instagram.com/p/4iCjq9DdOo/
