TRICK EFFECT & ROUTINE:
Magician is seen to levitate inches off the floor from three sides
For those of you cheepos – and “I want it now-ers” This is for you. Saw off theend of a block of wood smaller than your foot. It should be small enough not to be seen when you are standing on it and also small enough to fit up your trouser leg in your sock (like where you used to hide things when you were young) Paint the sides of the block the colors of carpets or floors where you will be performing this. i.e. home, work, Grandmas house etc. Black – white and gray are the best colors.
METHOD: Keep the block stowed away in your pants leg until you are ready. Bend over and remove it from your sock feigning that you are tying your shoe. Place the block (color side towards your audience) and hide it beside your shoe. When you are ready and have everyone’s attention: Hop up on the block on one foot.
COMMENTS: You might think “flying” forever is a cool thing, but it isn’t as with any levitation, the longer you are up – the longer everyone has to notice how you do things. Drop down fast and hard like it took a lot of effort and tell them you are “drained” and cannot do it again right now.
