I've never posted in this forum before. I collect voodoo dolls and figured I might as well use some or all of them in an effect. I'm aware of the Okito rising doll and effects where the placement of a pin is predicted but I'm looking for something different. I'm not a bizarre magic performer, I do comedy magic.
Thanks.

A comic magician doing voodoo dolls.... now that is funny.

Here's a bunch of them: https://www.amazon.com/NUOLUX-Wooden-Fin......71XCC8F4 If you are planning to stick in pins and needles, try this one: https://www.amazon.com/Rocket-USA-Bozo-C......006FUAA4

I think he is looking for an effect to use with his voodoo dolls.

I've never known someone who performs comedy magic to not have a sense of humor. That would be bizarre, even for weepinwill. I can see a tiny clown doll "come to life" and have to be chased down from spectator's pocket to spectator's pocket. Spooky but funny. I can see putting a clown finger puppet on my thumb and then piercing the puppet with several needles from several directions completely ignoring the blood dripping down from my hand, and having all traces of it vanish when the needles are removed and my thumb works perfectly. I can see plots in which two very different looking finger puppets change places when given to two spectators to guard. I can also see I'm not getting paid to mention all these things, so I'll stop here.

Oh **** sorry! I love the Bozo bounce back - that was funny I’m just slow on a Monday.

That is funny. Thanks for enlightening me. In my business, humor is rare. I may give up the 'streamer from the cadaver's butt' at my next FUNeral and have a devil and angel voodoo doll routine instead. I can see the smile on the people's face when the dolls predict their loved one is in Hell. What a laugh that will be.

It's OK to share ideas "for free" with your friends on the Café. Smile
(You might get some constructive feedback, too!)

You might want to take a look at Capricornian Tales.

If you read through the entire book, it may convince you to give up the plebeian styling of comedy magic, and join us in the shadow realm of the bizarre.

I have a old "Needle thru Arm" gaff needle. (RIP Harry Anderson).
I no longer do the effect it was made for, but it sees occasional use in my Voodoo doll routine.
Some dolls do not bleed when stuck. Some do.

That is a novel idea.

Thank you, Will.
The sitter/spec is able to predict the bleeder.
I'm still trying to develop a story as to why only some bleed.
Ideas welcome.

Would sound more authentic if not even you knew why. Keep the mystery in it.

I think you should know why, even if you never explain it to your audience.

A simple explanation would be that some dolls are still linked to living people, while others . . . well, let's just say that the doll finally did it's job.

Maybe some are naughty and some are nice. Just a thought.

Or could just be that time of month and separate genders.

Lol. I would have liked to have seen that. It does explain the reason some of them bleed and some don't and makes sense.

Now if you can figure a way to identify the ones with PMS you can separate the angry, dangerous dolls from the benign, easy going ones.

Now you have me thinking about removing the "Growler" from one of my dog's toys and transplanting it into a Voodoo Doll.
Pick it up and it growls. That's dangerous one.
