I wasn't that impressed. I believe it would look better if the mask were not attached to the cloth.
Jeff McBride did a zombie routine with one of his masks log long ago in his mask act.

If a special prop used in the presentation of a magic effect, it has to be introduced to the audience, and reason given why the effect is being presented.

A 2nd mask is needed for this introduction. Nice to see a dealer/manufacturer using the Tommy Wonder method for floating, but the mask just not make any sense. Why a black cloth on the mask and a black foulard being used as well. No separation of the prop and prop.

I'm very tightly connected with the theater and directors - that's why I see great potential in this illusion. Magic and theater, very few magicians develop these two planes of skill.

The black cloth attached to the mask is part of the mask costume. I didn't see a second foulard, only the cloth that draped from the top-rear of the mask properly.. A great story line could be spun about the Commedia dell'arte and the masks used.

I'd probably try to shorten the cloth. Maybe even enter with the mask on with the cloth draped over the back and sides of my head and onto my shoulders and back.

I'd probably use this in my Renaissance Fair costume and do a playlet.

Frankly it was a better prevention (albeit just a demo) than I remember Jeff McBride's floating mask in his Mask act.

This is interesting and has potential given the right motivation, setting, and venue.

I saw this at Magic Live 2019 and it is very impressive in person. The zombie moves have been refined and are much better than the ones seen in this video. In the right context, this is very magical. It needs a story leading into the float. I liked it so much I purchased one and am working on the routine. I think I can take it to the next level.
