I have the Mark Wilson Complete Course book and found the Take Apart Vanish. I was wondering if this is the correct way it is done? I don't want to spoil the secret so I'm justing asking if he has the secret right. Just in case I build it, try it out, and everyone see's the secret because it's wrong.

I also wanted to know, if I built it big enough and steardy enough, would I be able to do it on a human(probably myself)?

All the Magic things I don't have are like the foods I've never had. One day I'll have some but I will never have all.

I have the Mark Wilson Complete Course book and I don't see anything wrong with the secret. It might be quite angly from the side but I don't think you'll perform this surrounded. And for the the take apart vanish to be built to accomodate a human being. who would take it apart, a giant? The design of the secret taught in the Mark Wilson book is designed to hold livestock. I don't think you can adapt that to secure a human being. Maybe you can explore other methods of disappearing somebody in a box.

I have built and performed the Take apart Vanish, and it works wonderfully. It got a great reaction. The only suggestions I have are that the demensions he gives you are not large enough for a full size rabbit. He says it is, but I had to use a baby rabbit in mine. Make this trick in reverse, build the gimmick to fit you animal, then build the rest. Also he suggest displaying the taken apart pieces at the end. I personally would take part of the box off, hand it to my assistant and let them put it away, then move to the next piece. Not a big deal, but it helps with focus and handling.

All is correct in the text of the book. It works and yes, its a bit touchy on the angles. As to the human sized version....another method found in any number of illusion books would be much more practical and deceptive. Good luck!
