Here is a new effect that I'll be manufacturing so your dealers should be stocking it soon. This also appreared on Marco Tempest's Virtual Magician DVD's/TV Show.

Here is the Effect:

The magician holds a small mysterious object in his hands, “Have you ever seen this?" Its actually a cocoon. He invites the spectator to hold out her hand and hold on tight.

The Magician explains, “This was once a caterpillar and now its going through a metamorphosis, soon it will turn into a butterfly. However if we were to try and free it we would actually kill it. It has to go through its struggles and fight its way out and when it does it will be transformed into something beautiful. Kind of like the trials and bad times that we sometimes go through, however when we make it to the other side we become a better and stronger person from it. Do you feel it breaking out?" Open your hand.

The Spectator opens her hand to reveal the cocoon is completely cracked open. Every ones attention is now drawn to the fact that there seems to be a butterfly on her shoulder! The magician takes the butterfly from her, “Here let me have it I'll let it outside so it won’t get hurt

Is this a trained butterfly?

I've seen Joe do this effect on spectators live and the effect kills. I have recently added it to my own repitiore and have been getting terrific responses. It packs the same punch as Jim Pace's The Web, without giving your spectators a heart attack in the process!!!!!

Well I supply a fake butterfly but if you really want to make an impression I suggest you a live monarch butterflies and perform the trick with them

I must ask, how and where does one retain a monarch butterfly without harming it?
It's all in the reflexes.

Thanks for the links, Joe.
I assume you've done this with a live butterfly? I suppose I'm wondering about concealing it on my person (I assume the envelope they mention would be the way).
Seems to me it would be difficult to consistently be able to place it onto someone's shoulder without it flying away prematurely, as it's an unpredictable living thing.

Just looking for the voice of experience here.
Also, what happened to the video demo?
