If you imbed a metal shim in different places on the mask and then create a magnet strap for your palm you can pluck them off one at a time.

Each mask must have the shim in it's own separate location so as not to pull off more than one at a time.

It's funny how everyone is busy debating and Lou hasn't once yet responded. Are we all taking to ourselves? Silly no?

p.s. It is unlikely that Joaquin was performing with masks as a 12 year old in the Districto Federal of Mexico....He couldn't see without his glasses and they couldn't fit within the masks inside nor out. Contacts weren't invented yet either?...hmmmm!! Nice try though?

Feel free to PM me for Jeff's opinions on this or any other matter.


Nice... I do so LOVE condescending people such as yourself.

I don't do masks but I love challenges and this thread seems like a challenge. Would it be possible to make your masks with the same type of cuts in a Magic Coloring Book? It seems simple to me but then again, I don't do masks. If the "release" was slightly different on each mask and in a step type design, I think it would work.

Maybe it would help if we know more of the sequence being used. it makes a difference if you are doing the change with cover of a silk or a hat or if you plan on doing it a different way.

Joaquin Ayala did perform his mask act in Districto Federal in Mexico at a very young age. He was opening the shows for Mexican comedians such as Huarachin Y Huarachon, Pedro "El Monagillo," Mr Alex and others. He used to perform in the smaller theatres in Mexico City and he performed in TV on the Televisa, Azteca Networks. I am not sure as a little kid if he performed at "El Teatro Blanqita," the more prominent stage in Mexico City. Vicente Fernandez and other stars worked that venue.

Has anyone seen the film "The King of Masks"? well worth watching, and a very moving story.

This is avaliable on DVD from sites such as Amazon.
Those with an interest in mask magic will certainly appreciate this.
Yours Magically,
Lee Alex

I mentioned King of Masks on another mask thread. At least I've seen it. It isn't the same type of masks. I like the version better though, much quicker than many magicians. They are very thin and flexible.

Love the magnet idea.

With magnets, velcro and duct tape one could rule the world (mini lol).

Back in the 80's I worked fairs and young audiences with an act called Mime over Matter. I wish I would have kept my mask. I only have a few somewhere around my Nearly Normal Enchanted Cottage.

Close-up Troy Hooser has sparked an idea about using mini mask as part of a platform or close up routine.

Those too are somewhere around this house. They are about the size of USA old Silver Dollars and look like across between mimes and Chinese Opera Masks.

Enjoy the process and as was mentioned above, create something that is you.

I sometimes wear bandanas. Do you think theres a way to do kind of the same effect but instead using bandanas? Thanks.

How are the bananas tied to your head? Also are they different colors or the traditional yellow? Smile

Juliana Chen has a wonderful mask act. She changes masks 8 times.

Kaizen,

I have seen footage of Juliana Chen on a program we get in England I'm sure you get called World's Greatest Magic. Chen is on World's Greatest Magic IV (4) About 4 acts in I think. Jonathan David Bass, Ayala (double buzz saw illusion), Kirby Van Birch, Lance Burton and Max Maven are a few names to appear on this series. I don't know about finding it but I'm sure someone records it off the TV.

Thanks a lot, magicofjohn! It gives me a place to start.

RyinDubs, have you considered combining vanishing or
appearing silks with your bandana act?
Can any of our fellow Magi out there help out our friend RyinDubs with some suggestions?
(Thanks for the PM, by the way)
