Hi all,
I'm wondering if someone here has ever build the Light Bulb Variations from Steinmeyer's Conjuring Anthology. I am possibly interested in building this sort of mini one man illusion, but I would like to get the thoughts of someone who already owns it.

Thanks!

Johnny

I am also interested in this effect. Out of curiosity, I made the gimmicked bulb and played around with it. I found no problem with angles, but would like to hear other experiences with the workings of the effect.

I built Jims' latest light bulb effect last year. It is posted on Youtube--search Steinmeyer light bulb. The vid is dark, but you can see the effect---very cool. Jim made a mock-up of the effect in the Anthology and said it worked well.

I believe the one on youtube is called strange power. In lightbulb variations a bulb is covered with a shade, silk changes color, light changes color, silk vanishes, bulb vanishes. Bulb appears in coat with silk inside.

I believe Jim has also performed the effect at one of the get togethers. Maybe someone who saw it will post.

I'm working on some ideas regarding this trick. Thanks for the e-mail address! I intend to spend a lot of time on this over Thanksgiving break. Does anyone know where to find light bulbs that will not easily break? Also, do you think that producing the light bulb magically will take away from the rest of the effect?
Thanks!

Do you buy ethically?
