Yeah it's pretty easy to fool magicians by NOT doing a sleight
There's a trick called Sucker Vanish in Bobo's book, where you vanish a coin in an obvious way and then you show that you didn't actually vanish the coin and it's still in your hand... it's a pretty cool trick.
No you actually do vanish the coin, I have a routine based around this smaller routine.
The book's routine goes like this, you take a coin, vanish it but do a very poor job so that it looks like you put the coin in your pocket. Then since people watching think that you give a wave over your fist and the coin reappears. You put the coin in your hand again, show your pocket empty, then vanish the coin and show both hands empty.
In my routine I start off in a similar way but I don't act like I'm putting it in my pocket because personally I hate routines where you pretend to mess up because well I hate messing up lol. So I vanish it, then show my pocket empty as I say that some people think I put it in my pocket somehow. Then I give a wave and it reappears in my hand. Then I place it in my hand again, give a wave, and it vanishes once again and I show both hands empty which they really are at that point. Then I show my pocket empty once again, give a little wave over my hand, and say since its the end I will change it around a little, and then reveal a gold coin instead for the end. Thats my little alteration of that routine from MCM.
