Metamorphosis

http://www.card-shark.de/index_e.cfm

Scroll down to see the Standard Version (24.50 Euro) and the Pro-Version (34.50 Euro)

Four caterpillar cards transform themselves into beautiful coloured butterfly cards.

I just recently received the pro version of this effect and it is beautiful! The artwork is superb and wonderfully done to the standard you find in all of Christian's products. The set comes with the cards to do the standard version and what you need to do the pro version. The booklet is glossy finish and coloured. You also get an envelope and plastic wallet to hold everything in....AND...of course...a Haribo treat!

The moves are straightforward...I do not normally do packet tricks of any kind, but this is truly different with a good back story that can be modified to fit your own circumstances, persona, and performance conditions...the patter on colours is very clever...

I performed this at a restaurant gig last night and great a very strong response, espeically from the woman who was holding the cards!

10 out of 10 for me.

I like the look of this one, my kind of magic.

What is the chance of getting this at Blackpool.

just ordered it. I got a refill with it too, but was wondering how many times it can be used. If it's revealing, don't answer as I will see myself within the next few days :D

You do not have to give them the butterfly, but for a big client, I would suggest that you do :-)

The cards look and feel nice and you can really work the presentation in a way that makes this so different. Maybe some day I will share the actual response I got....

What a beautiful piece of magic. I'm sure the moves are pretty standard for any card man, but the creative approach used here is brilliant! I'll lie awake all night trying to figure out a way to justify buying this.

You didn't rate how difficult it is--could you, or someone, give it a rating, please. It looks like a 3 to me.

I rate the difficulty as a 1, actually...the impact is great!
