Hi,
I just bought Bi-Section and put it together. I was wondering if anyone had any different ideas for presentation.

I don't think there is really too much more you can do with this trick.

Use your imagination and there is so much more you can do with it. Play around with it and you will see.

It lends itself very well to routining.. you start clean, end clean and have a nice wow effect in the middle. Try and think of other related things you can do with the sheet or around the theme of making body parts vanish.

I think you could do it with the sub trunk while standing on top about to do the switch you lift the curtain up and instead of your assistant there you vanish half your body then when you reappear you body say oops wrong trick. This will probably get a laugh. then go ahead and to the switch. Hopes this helps.

How about this: Do it surrounded! Use a hoolahoop and turn it into a circular curtain. How about a costume change as well? State that you are going to change your appearance...when you come back up you have a totally different shirt/jacket on!

or

Your on stage with your two beautiful assistants. You invite someone up on stage and hand them a sword. At this point you can do a couple of different things...you can have your assistants cover you with a large cloth and have the volunteer stab your upper part (just hope they don't make a mistake! how about coloring the cloth?) and then they lower it to show half your body gone...or start out with a pocket sawing in half and then have your assistants cover you. Have the volunteer cut through the cloth (mark it so they know where to cut!) and your assistants lower it to show your body is gone! If you attach the gimmick to the cloth somehow so that it is hidden when the cloth is raised, you can even show your upper body! But then again...that's more stage.....how about doing it with a friend as your assistant while walking around...take out a pocket knife or something and have your friend cover you with something...I wouldn't reccommend a jacket for this one, unless you don't mind Smile. Let your imagination flow...even if it sounds IMPOSSIBLE to you...write it down! You'll surely find something that suits you. Good luck!
If it is to be, it is up to me.

Peter Loughren has a new illusion out called Head Rush. I think it's like Bisection with your head. Do the two together.

You could also do something like lightstorm by Andrew Mayne to cut thru your body before the upper half vanishes, you could also rig the gaff with smoke cotten.
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.

Combine Division to cut yourself. Pocket sawing to further separate yourself. Then bisection to vanish half your body. A gratutitous sawing-in-half routine. And I do not think Peter's head rush is anything like bisection. The effect is closer to pocket sawing.

I love it, I just need to sit down and build it. I have known how it works for a long time, but I bought it a few weeks ago. Using a jacket will take practice as oposed to a curtian. I think it is amazing.

Sorry, I was talking about Bisection. My parents have been getting on me about spending money. They are getting tired of driving me to the magic shop a few times a week to volunteer. They are trying to get me to save for a car.

I am looking to use Bi-Section for a Halloween gag. The instructions are unclear as to how to best secure the various components of the gimmick, particularly how to bond metal to fabric.

It seems to imply hot glue will work. Just looking to confirm before I goop it all up. Any recommendations?
