Since I'm sure that someone else has already thought up this idea, can anyone tell me who is doing this and if there are any kind of performance rights or anything like that associated with this?

The effect is simply to have a suit hanging in a frame, and then in a puff of smoke you are standing in the frame wearing the suit.

I have never seen this done before, but if anyone has seen it, how does it look?

Well I have seen Lance Burton do something similar.
He has a smoke chamber on stage. Two girls enter carrying a tux on a hanger. There is pole in the middle of the chamber with a hook. The tux is placed on the hook and the chamber beings to fill with smoke. The doors open with Lance in the tux and both girls have vanished.

Hope this helps,
Mike

Just a thought, but this could be accomplished using the bengal net principle.

I have been racking my brain about this, but have not come up with a solution. As far as I know the bengal net is a horizontal principal ( the net being folded in half before it is opened to create a vanish?).

This effect could be easily achieved in a nomal "Flash Frame" appearance. Absolutely visual with no cover ups.
Yours Magically,

Sorry guys, I was thinking out loud. "Very foolish of me Mister Bond." Of course the basic principle was black art. I was thinking of a narrow portal suspiciously like a flash frame. The suit is hung in front of the audience on the netting, the net is doubled, poof - smoke and fire. The suit is covered and the magician takes its place between background and net under cover of the smoke.

Now that I have had some time to ponder my blatant comment, it does sound rather Rube Goldberg. Guess that's why I don't design illusions. Smile

I once saw a young magician come out on stage in a yellow suit with a rolled up 'shade' in his hands. He pulled the shade (which had a picture of a red suit) down in front of himself, and after a few beats he rolled it back up and he was wearing a red suit.

Sorry if this principle has already been discussed here but I don't know what it's called, so I really wouldn't know.
Thanks,

David; That young man you saw was Danny Cole. He is still performing this act.
