Hello Bizarre Magicians

For some time now, I have been searching for props or effect that can make a deceased relative appear in mirror when contacted during séance and interrogated. What I found were Projectors with Atmosfx and Creature but they were not what I am looking for. So I decided to come on this forum to ask fellow Bizarre Magicians for recommendations of the name of props or effect that can make a dead relative whose photo has been handed to me to appear in the mirror and speak to us in a question and answer routine during séance.

Because I have heard stories of bizarre Magicians conjure up spirits, angels, ghosts, deceased relatives, demons…. in mirrors and interrogate them audibly. This is something I would like to include in my next psychic reading. I need something visual during my readings and séance.

Your replies will be highly appreciated. Thanks so much in advance. I’m opened to all suggestions. I’m here to learn!

First, I'd be careful contacting ANY real, deceased relatives. That's just poor taste for a bizarre performer.

Second, the mirror spirit. That's a tough nut to crack. I've seen small mirrors that reveal a static image which has been pre-placed, but never one on the fly, and definitely not one that could respond to questioning.

Good luck, but please think about not contacting sitter's deceased relatives or friends. Its just wrong to lie to them, or even mistakenly give them false hope.

Sorry, but given our general proficiency in "magic tricks" this seems to cross the line a bit. I also find this in bad taste. Either the person wants to believe (as many do) and walks away thinking something happened that did not or they get upset at the poor judgement exhibited by the PERFORMER.

This is essentially the same BS that John Edwards tried to do.

Theatrical magic simulations can cause psychological trauma.... especially without proper clarity of frame, safety, and authenticity of what is being presented

For the real thing, take a look at https://psi-encyclopedia.spr.ac.uk/artic......r-gazing

For performance - I wouldn't, if I were you, for the reasons already given.

Dr. Spec -
One of the first elaborate" seances a friend and I did resulted (using an entirely fictitious character we made up) in one of the attendees "feeling the spirit move through her" and collapsing on the floor, passed out. Not a fun moment.

Regardless of what we think, some persons wholly believe what is being presented and we would be negligent to not take that into consideration

FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY ... small, cheap android tablet placed into a wooden frame, edited video of room you will be in from the mirrors point of view, fading into the spirit, same room, same point of view, fading back to room. Shoot the video through a cloudy/distressed/distorted pane of glass. Trigger the video play with bluetooth.

Yes... James left a certain code and I've cracked it!!!! I speak with him all the time now via Seance. He says he's sorry. Not sure if I can get him to drop by my mirror or not. Smile

Thank you so much for this tips. Highly appreciated. Nice concept. Just like a hologram but what should be used to create the fake spirit and question and answer audio? Do you have any video or YouTube link to this? I was thinking of using a stooge behind the mirror for this performance. What do you think?

Dark3rz ... You do understand that Mystics don't believe in the Supernatural as well? Right?Everything is Natural but unfortunately people don't understand that. Just because you can't understand how things work doesn't mean they don't...... Smile

I don't have a link or video. As for the spirit, I would use an actor. When shooting the video the actor can speak answers to your questions with pauses between, giving you time to ask the next question. Hope this makes sense Smile
