Hello Magicians,
I was asked to prepare a magical proposal for a close friend that is looking to pop the question soon. He is not a pro magician but has some basic experience.

The conditions would be.
1. It can't look cheezy
2. It needs to be somewhat practical
3. He is willing to practice for as long as it takes.
4. FYI - This will be on filmed on a hidden video
5. It has to obviously incorporate the production of the ring somehow.

My initial thoughts were some sort of spinoff of DC's "Coal to Diamond" routine on his 10th TV special (Bermuda Triangle.... Your Ideas and help is much appreciated.

PS. Had another proposal idea and was wondering if anyone played around with combining Smoke 2000 and the raven....???

Thank you

MT

How about taking a "napkin", shaping it into a rose, a little bit of flame...It transforms into a real rose w/the ring on the rose stem. Prep would be needed to ensure the ring doesn't fall off, of course.

Along with the rose, the patter could be, "Beauty is a single rose, you are a dozen. (Magic) Will you marry me."

This line may sound cheesy, but it is a good line, and would go with the routine.

No ring flight, raven involve please...You don't want to he ring accident fly away or drop prematurely...
Simple way is learning how to make an origami ring woth a dollar bill.

Put it on her finger and said I am trying to practice for the real thing.. SmileWhen she is inspecting the ring, palm the real ring and when ready ask for the ring back, do a subtle pass and voila a real diamond ring on her finger...And she cries and you have a shot for TV. Smile

I rather think condition number 1 makes the project a bit of a non-starter Smile

Hi knmagic

Its so funny cause a Raven was something I was really thinking about!

I really do appreciate the feedback. Not really a silk kind of guy. Want it totally impromptu looking.

There was an effect I saw a while back. Its a ring flight routine where the ring ends up on the stem of a wine glass, Just wondering if anyone heard of it or has seen it?

Thanks,
MT

Super helpful. I'm sure that's what he was looking for Smile

Ask Pete Biro about the ring on the wine glass stem - I believe he had some work on that at one point. I could be wrong but I seem to remember him mentioning that at some point (though the ring may be gimmicked; I'm not sure.)
