Message: Posted by: bentley (Jun 18, 2006 03:45PM)
I couldn't find it in the search. Sorry if this topic is in there. I had and having trouble with Rope Through Neck. Steven Thompson is helping me with it but is it just me or is it a little hard. I haven't done much rope magic. If someone could help me with it. You can ask Steven (IF he doesn't mind) if I have this. I don't know. The insructions I got werent very clear and don't even bother with the rope. I don't want to expose.

Hi there,
From what I know there are 2 ways. The easiest way is with 2 ropes. The other is with 1 rope. It can only be done in a collared or "Tight Neck " shirt. PM me If you want the "Details". Which one is it?

Daryl shows some good variations of rope thru neck on one of his rope videos,sorry I can't remember which one but I'm sure if you put it in google you will be able to find out which tape has the material your looking for.

Flip's rope dvd also has a couple versions of ropes through the neck.

Eleazar Goodenough is currently combining the Tenkai Rope Through Neck (the version with one rope) with the "Lost Head" Illusion. They make a great combination. He takes the rope and pulls it through his neck. Then his head seems to wobble around and suddenly falls off into his hands. He plays catch with it, tossing it up and down a few times, and then finally reaches around for a bucket of glue. He has to point his head towards the bucket to find it. He holds his head with one hand, then pretends to slop glue from the bucket onto his neck, and finally he replaces his head back where it belongs.

This one makes them SCREAM with laughter.

That's a cleaver combination of effects

Daryl also includes a rope through the neck routine on one of his Fooler Dooler videos -- #2, I believe. The handling is pretty straightforward.
