The latest effect from Illusion Impact is a dramatic appearance that can be built in one afternoon for under $60. The Specter Cabinet packs down small enough that you can carry it in a duffle bag.
A single light within an open frame illuminates a darkened stage. The magician’s assistant lowers the cloth sides to the frame. A shadow begins to form. Slowly it takes shape. The magician’s silhouette can now be seen from inside the box. He rips away the front cover and makes his entrance.
Please note that performaning this illusion requires an auditorium where you have control of the lighting.
