I have seen this preformed by an amature magician called lee welsh and it seemed ok I suppose but you'll have to have the right personallity for it, You'll have to be dramatic.

Pure magic,

Is it look realistic?
No suspicious move to be seen?

If you guys are interested on where you can find this product, then here's where I found it: http://www.arlenstudio.com/

- Simply go to that website, scroll down to the middle of the page, and you will see a big picture of a signed card from the guy's chest.

I hope it helps!

Unless you are REALLY GOOD at makeup , Don't buy it!

Aside from that , it is a REALLY good effect. I got rid of mine tho because I wasn't very good at makeup.

Also you do have to act very dramatic and believeable. Which will be the hardest part. I am sure you don't want to stick around after you have performed it. The item is really bulky too. So that is another draw back.I mean , you could carry it but a lot of things can go wrong. But usually they don't.

For the money is it worth it?

Only if you are doing a tv special type of thing. It has to be done at night to look more real.

It has limitations. But really it is worth it.

Looks pretty wild, but boy it will take a certain type of performance to pull it off. Reminds me of coin in arm.

Oh I forgot to add, it is unavoidable YOU WILL STAIN YOUR CLOTHES!

REALLY concider that. Will you spend money on a new shirt every time you perform it?

Like all good magic it does have a HUGE deal of sacrifises.

The only tricky move is when you swallow the card and keeping it in the CHEST area

Hey-unilogo, do you have to use makeup, because if they never see the edges cant you just like "have it stay in spot" and not blend the edges in or is there other parts to use the makeup on

After you buy it I will trade you for the two expensive Arlen Studio effects I never have used.

DOn't even worry about that.The chest piece fits perfectly and it is concealed really good in your shirt. You just have to make that piece look like your skin, it won't be a big problem if again YOU ARE GOOD with makeup.

It is an extremely clever method that works amazing and eliminates most problems you can think of. You will LOVE it if you are GOOD WITH MAKE UP. I have to stress that.

What I meant by sliding is that the piece will stay in your chest.The artificial chest. It doesn't move if you fit the stringst that keep it up right.

It's hard to explain. All you have to worry about is being good with make up.

That is it.

Have a great day.

Wow, this is a pretty cool effect, but this isn't my cup of tea. My curiosity is killing me, but I'm not gonna buy something I'm not going to use.

Pretty cool trick though.
