Hi, all.

I'm new to this forum, and am primarily an aerial silk artist. I have a show coming up Sunday in which I perform an aerial silk as a clown. I'm looking for a simple magic trick that I can perform at one part in the performance when I'm suspended upside down by my ankles. In the past, I've taken this moment to blow up a balloon until it pops, then pretend like the noise has startled me into almost falling out of the ankle lock, but this Sunday's show will have small kids at it, and the sound of a balloon popping often makes little kids cry... so....! I was hoping the professional magicians here might be able to help me come up with something different!

Here are the restrictions on the type of trick I'm looking for:

* The trick should be easy to learn. I'm new to (and fairly bad at) magic. I read a lot of books and enjoy the theory, but I'm a klutz and slight of hand is not my strong suit.

* The trick should be very quick, and require little (if any) prep immediately before, as I'll be a bit busy then.

* The trick needs to be visible from a distance (as I'm 15 feet in the air, and fairly far from the audience at this point in the act).

* The trick needs to involve only props that I can hide in my tight, rather skimpy costume.

* The trick needs to work upside down.

* The trick needs to be performed with no talking.

* The funnier, the better.

Any ideas or suggestions or really thoughts at all would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers, Celeste
