Hi there,

has anyone ever heard about the effect "cosmosis" which is apparently the ultime floating match routine, where you can actually pass a ring through the floating piece?!!

If so, please drop me a line and tell me about it, how you like it and if it´s practical.

I was wondering, if this was actually that old trick DC used to show in his Bermuda special (remember the floating match and the passing finger ring?!).

If anyone knows more about it and would like to talk about it please feel free to write me a short note!

Thanks for helpin´ !
Alex

Hello Alex,

Cosmosis is a great effect and the instructions that come with the needed props are wonderful. It is more than worth the extra three dollars it costs above the price of the ripped-off version.

Passing the finger ring around the match is explained, but that bit will also cost you a little extra practice.

Cosmosis *the orignal* is a wonderful effect. Fairly inexpensive too.

Bought it some time ago and wasn't too happy with the quality of the gimmick. It broke during practice!

The effect is great, however... so I made another gimmick with the instructions in the manual.

Hi,Alex
A good effect with a great instruction of teaching dozen of moves.I find it is a great trick standing by itself.
But regarding passing ring through match,I think it is something killing the effect.You don't have to do that to obtain the maximum impact.The instruction has enough to let you make the best of Osmosis.

I agree it is a good effect but a well know trick so dont be suprised when your spectators say 'I know how you did that'

Not if you have the original.

There are many subtleties involved where the spectator picks the card, signs it and then the match rises above the card. Then the card can be given to the spectator as a souvenir. With a bit of thought, you can completely fool people who've only been exposed to the rip off versions.

To answer your original question, yes, it's the same thing that Copperfield did witht the match going through the ring...

How does this trick compare to the floating diamond effect where the pip floats off the card? Smile
