D'Lites and Airline Attendants

Postby J6M8 » Dec 5th, '08, 01:23



I first saw these props on an airplane of all places (of course, that was before they started their post-9-11 policies of 'nothing mildly interesting allowed on the plane'), where the American flight attendant (if this is you, please let me know, you're one of the reasons I'm a magician!) pulled a red glowing ball out of my ear and replaced it in his. (I was young, this was soooo entertaining!)

The Effect
You do something silly, make a contorted face, and pull an obscenely bright red light out of assorted orifices on your (or an assistant's) body.

The Review
While it's a great prop for semi-closeup magic (i.e. 30-40 feet away, at a kid's birthday or I suppose at some sort of club), D'lites are difficult to see in well-lit rooms, and the trick is pointless in pitch black, which means that unless you happen to have a dimmer-switch and electronics kit handy at all times, (plus permission to screw with the area's lighting) it's drastically limited to very picky situations. However, the magic itself is remarkably convincing, albeit very simple to perfect. The lights aren't bright enough to be seen, so the audience will only see 'The Amazing Pordooni' waving his arms around like a mad man, claiming that he's about to take some red light out of his ear.

Overall, 7 out of 10.

If you want more information, or I'm not conforming to the rules of the forum, please let me know. This is only my second post, so I'm not sure what I'm doing yet!!

Thanks!

Maybe consider editing the title a bit as well.
