Funny you should ask. It's called Headrush and it's from some guy who invents these crazy stuff that no one in their right mind would ever think of creating (good thing you're not in your right mind).

OK, I had the avatar photoshopped a bit since you really don't show 2 heads during the actual effect. I had the picture taken as a publicity shot for a fundraiser that I did. I didn't want to give away the shocking head-removing effect before hand, so I had this picture created.

I just checked out the video. I noticed at some points in the routine, you can remove only one hand from the broom. Is it possible to remove both hands at some point? IMO, that would make for a much stronger display.

Hi Rick, while I have tested this illusion and showed to many laymen over the past year during the development of the illusion, I didn't find it neccessary to have that in the effect. Although with some simple modifications and used at the right moments in a routine I could see it easly rigged to function like that with some basic added hardware.

You are welcome Peter!I am just trying to help!I never understood why you never accept the negative thoughts of few magicians and you just want to hear the positive opinions.It is magicians helping magicians and not magicicans helping dealers so I am free to have my opinion about a trick,illusion or whatever else you want to call your "inventions".I just wrote my thoughts when I watched the specific video clip and said that is better for specific kind of magic,that is not so bad.Anyway,good luck and keep "inventing"!

1908, please see the below link, so you can understand my side of the things as a creator. I love constructive critisim, as I beleive it can help a creator in vast ways. But there are two types of negative posts. Please visit here:
http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......72&0

As far as your comments directly, you know as well as I that you used to enter the majority of my posts in the past with lots of negativity. Then I thought we got over that, and then when I never sent you a free pair of mindShades you asked for because we were low on stock, I then thought the worse when you then went in and attacked my broom thru body thread, with negative comments but with no constructive critisim.

Thanks for the good wishes, and hopefully I mis-understood.

Best,

P.

Hey Peter,

Do you have an update of when these will be shipped out? I'm having a hard time waiting. I gotta make sure I catch this Harry Potter hype going on.

Hey Scott, they are finishing production over the next couple of weeks overseas, and then they will be shipping to our shop soon after. Not long now. But we only have a limited number of these being manufactured, and we are selling out of our stock fast.

Also a percentage of these are promissed to our distributor for the shops and there are some of these shops already taking pre-orders right now too such as hocus-pocus, so Im not sure how many have been sold out of the remaining ones left promissed to our distributor for the shops. So for those waiting, don't wait long if you want to make sure you have one of these for the Harry Potter hype, up comming halloween shows etc. You won't be disappointed, this is a really fun peice.

I had an idea about the Broom part of the Broom Thru Body that I thought I would share. I'm not sure if this would work, but I figure I'd throw it out there as a suggestion.

If you colored one side of the broom bristles dark, and kept the other side normal color, you could fool around a bit with a paddle move and have a color changing broom effect. Some how you would have to work into your patter line why your broom keeps changing color, and then you could pull the broom through you.

Again, not sure if it's possible with this illusion, but I figured I'd throw it out there. It could be a nice simple effect to build up to the big effect.

Awesome Peter!! It has been a while since I seen a demo that made me laugh so hard!! Great performance, and even better, great illusion brother! I have been looking forward to this since it's announcement (I believe last summer). I will %100 be picking this up, I see a lot of comedy and laughter within my audience with this effect, an awesome display of comedic entertainment combined with impossible illusion. Just may be your greatest illusion yet buddy, keep up the good work Peter!!

Thanks Paul! It has been a long time in the making!

Scott, that's a killer idea using it as a paddle effect. Although since your audience will eventually see both sides of the broom during regular application, I suppose you will need to end the paddle routine with the two sides different colors.

Peter, do you (or anyone) have the video demo in another format besides Windows Media? AVI possibly. Quicktime? I wanted to get this a long time ago as it possible fits in with a character I have, but I would like to see the demo before purchasing.

That looks awesome, Peter! Any comparisons to a pen through anything are hopefully a deliberate joke. I've been on performance hiatus for a number of years, but when I get back on the stage, I'm sure that will be my first new purchase. I try to perform with no "magic equipment" and that's just perfect. Good on ya!

We have to be getting close to having this thing show up on our doorstep. I can't wait to start working with this effect. I have a ton of ideas for this. Come-on Mr. Postman!
