Greetings all
Just wondering if there is a source for a deluxe zipper banana. One that actually looks a little like a real banana when you first pull it out.
I've google away and the only ones I can find are quite tacky. I'm being kind.
Anywho, hope you can help.

Even the old, classic fabric models looked like a fabric bandanna with magic marker on it.

I'm curious why you need to elevate a gag to an illusion?

If you had a high resolution photo of a banana/peel, you could probably print it onto some transfer paper and have someone heat press it onto your fabric of choice. Sew the necessary pieces together, throw in one of those "hiding" zippers they use on dresses, and you might have something close to a realistic-looking banana.
If it is to be, it is up to me.

Daniel, this might be good for the Vanishing Bandanna.

Does anyone use a real banana in their shows besides the taped bandana.

I use a tiny shrunken banana. It's black and I shudder to think what it looked like before reaching that look.

Basically it's an aged petrified banana.

Other possibilities is the old cut in the 3 pieces without peeling.
