Got a different use for dancing napkin, fits perfectly into my "haunted pub crawl,'
where I tour the bars along the very old wilmington waterfront and tell ghost stories as my guests tip a few,i occasionally use a haunted key to illustrate a story, and now this is another that I use as the occasion arises

Quick question, and I'm not fishing for the method, honest!

Is the gimmick something that I would have to take with me when I go out, or is it likely to be found in restaurants, bars, people's homes etc?

Ross, Scotty is correct and incorrect. The chief component is almost 100% to be found in homes, 95% in restaurants, about 80% or better in bars. There is a secondary component that can be worked around that isn't likely just to be found but it is easily obtained.

Can the gimmick be legally transported thru a metal detector at the airport ?? Or would it be considered a shiv by the warden and get me 30 days in the hole ? Do you need a SMT soldering iron set to create it? How many batteries does it take ? Has Randi actually performed with the "No Clothes" option? Will MagicSanta every stop skeeving people out ? Is it available a totally freeking urbane and gritty GHOST deck design ?
Have a Magical Day!

I must say on watching this dvd I was impressed with the gimmick and how easy it can be made up.the dvd really covers everthing.the only thing I would mention is the items to make the gimmick is probably in 50% of uk homes,so a trip to the town centre not your corner shop is more than likely necessary to buy the items.
still it is fantastic and worth every penny.(makes a change)

The required gimmick can be carried through airports, you could even take it to watch congress perform. You could tape it to your head and still it would be okay by security even though you may be questioned about taping stuff to your head. You kid can bring it to school and not be in trouble, your wife could wave it in church and while strange no one would be scared. You could beat a puppy with one and the puppy would think it felt good. You can use it to play with a kitten.

I am surprised that it isn't as common in the UK as it is in the US.

For you beginners out there(which includes me), the gimmick is very easy to make and is great--it is just not so easy to, for lack of a better word, install the gimmick without getting caught--I am still practicing but just wanted everyone to know that installing the gimmick without being noticed is not so easy--not difficult technically at all, just difficult to do without being noticed, at least for a hobbyist--otherwise great effect

So "install" the gimmick in the men's room, then switch it into play when no one's looking. If you're a hobbyist, you got all the time in the World to prepare!
I'm intrigued, but so certain I've seen this before, I'm loath to part with the cash. I need to see that vid a couple of times again.....
....is this really a new method? Or simply an old method performed with new materials?

There shouldn't be any real heat on you anyway unless you call for it. The attention is drawn when you go into the hypno, if you do that, and the movement.

Actually, it works best installed in the women's room. It's worth the risk.

Bingo!

However,what a clever new/old method and gimmick.

Listen carefully...relax...clear your mind...Do not buy this...I am the only performer who should posess this.....sleep...sleep...

I noted the movement before but I never thought of altering it by cutting to make it have more dramatic motion and certainly never thought of a magical application.

remember in magic the big movement covers the little movement this might seam awkward at first; two dozen times your suddenly a pro. when I first started performing the dancing napkin I practiced at fast food drivethru windows.#1 you have a captivated audience for 35 seconds.#2 they have extra napkins #3 if you mess up say thanks and drive off. p.s. don't forget your food. good luck!

Just to add to my previous post can someone tell me where to get the gimmick from as all I can find is the type that have a colour runnung through them and therefore making the gimmick slightly visible.
