What tricks would you guys reccomend for a newbie who needs a grand finale? Right now it's a simple hankerchief vanish into the 20th Century Bra into a hankerchief reappearance. I also have the deluxe pen through dollar, but it just doesn't scream "big finish" to me. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Iwould try kapps that card wallet thing i've used that so many times, and durring a street magic show, i will hide a smokers lighter and at the end he will pick up his cigerettes and begin to look for his lighter so than i ask if he needs a light and produce the Inviso-Torch and light his smoke for him than i hand him back his lighter Great effect

I agree, a fire trick usually has a big impact on your audience. I am not all the experienced with magic myself so I only have a limited number of tricks I consider myself good at. One of them is Jay Sankey's In a Flash. I usually close a performance with that trick. The fire leaves a strong note to end on.

I also own the Kaps On Fire Wallet and usually use it along with another trick earlier in a routine. The two fire tricks seem to be the part of my routine that people are most impressed with.

You can't go wrong with fire. StreetMan.

P.S. Unless you accidentally light your home on fire while practicing :wink: !

I agree, fire magic would be a great "big finish". I have been considering buying the kaps on fire wallet for some time now, but my problem is this: I do a lot of my magic indoors. I do street stuff, sure, but a lot of it is also inside buildings and whatnot that have fire alarms. I'd hate to pull out a burning wallet, only to drench my unsuspecting spectators in a wave of wet fury! Still, I think I'll just deal with it and buy the darn thing. Thanks for the help, everyone!

Yeah fire is fun. But, just in my opinion, if you wanna go out in style and play with cards mostly, if you can get one of those tearing-deck-in-half things...I think they'd love for you to do that, then leave. But fire is a good idea.

Try and find a trick were you can leave, and when you leave the audience like turn over the card or turn over a piece of paper with something written down beforehand, so you can walk away and say, oh when I'm gone, just turn that piece of paper over or look under there or something

Fantastic idea edluty. That just reminded me of something I saw on tv. Its a GREAT idea to have a fun show, everyones happy, then, last trick, "screw up", act like its no biggie, and leave, only for them to find out a few seconds later that you totally blew them away. Like when Blaine had that little girl with the queen of hearts, it vanished and went to her pocket...If you could do something like that, like as you leave the door, "Sorry I couldnt find your card. Maybe its in your pocket or something." And just leave. :)
