Hi All,
I just received today my purchase of a used Kid's magic effect from off of the "big auction" site, but unfortunately no instructions or routine came with it. I was aware of this situation when I bought it and the original owner couldn't remember any specifics about the trick. The effect is as per my subject, Zapadap - The Color Changing Ghost made by Madblood Creations. I bought this (at a fairly good price) because I remember through the mists of time actually seeing this effect on the shelf of my local (long gone now) magic shop - probably back in the early to late 80's (maybe even the 70's!), and I like the graphics. The mechanics of the trick are pretty obvious, but if anyone out there on the Café has one of these in their closet at home or even owned one at one time - could you possibly email me the routine (magicguy@shaw.ca) ? - I would be eternally grateful! For those of you who have no idea of what I am talking about - you can google "Zapadap the Color Changing Ghost" to see the old listing with pictures. It is basically a black picture/folder of a haunted house outlined in white with a white ghost inside the folder. When the folder is turned over, the haunted house is outlined in pink, now with a pink ghost inside the folder. At some point the ghost turns blue - but I would like to know the original routine and handling before having to make something up. To change up the theme from Halloween to Christmas, also included was a Santa Claus picture that changes from red suit to orange suit and finally to green suit with very similar type of graphics. I would appreciate anyone's help! Thanks in advance!

I guess this effect is rarer than I originally thought! After playing with it for a while, I have figured out the handling and have come up with a plausible story, but would still appreciate it if someone knows the original routine! Thanks!

Did you ever get instructions? I gave mine to a friend but can't find the instructions and cannot track down my old friend Bill Madden who invented it and Glorpy.

Garymey,
You're the first person that I'm aware of to mention Glorpy. I loved it, but it hit the dust a long time ago.
