i have

fountain of silks
sly silks
acrobatic silks
chameleon silks(sorry for spelling)
d'lites (blue)
and a box similar to rabbit mirror box



i am doing a show focused on the silks and starting off with a plain silk to have the d'lite appear
and so i can also ditch it and hide it




i want to know if these are good tricks to do and what would be the best thing for an audiance that does not seem too lively

Seems ok But D-light isnt really for stage
I suggest that trick for close up or street
And the best thing to do if the audience is not lively make some noise wake them up
Put on some music that wont make them fall asleep and if you are doing good they should not fall aslepp :roll:
I also suggest getting some new affects besides silks
like
Joker tube

Hippity hop Rabbits

And add some doves if u can they are cheap and easy to mantain

Actually, D Lites are for stage. And ive read a post that i think Zachmonkey did a silent talent show only using them. Lots of people use them.

Just be sure when you do your other effects that they are still easily visible in the darkness.

Actually, D-Lites work a lot better on stage then up close, because then you don't flash. If you use them up close, then you have a strong chance of flashing, because of the handling.

Also, doves aren't that cheap or easy to maintain. First, you have to purchase the doves, the cage, the food, and everything else. Then there are the videos (learning the effects), as well as the gimmicks that go with them. Then there is the chance that they get sick, and you have to pay to get them better. Or God forbid, one dies, so that's some more money. So, like any other pet, it can get expensive. Especially at first.

And to maintain, there are certain things that must be done. Since they are being used for performance, you have to take more care of them, so that they look nice. Also, it's important to maintain their health. There's a lot that has to be done with them. Getting doves is basically a life long commitment. It's not like other effects that you can just throw away.


kevinsak- Since you are using d-lites, you may want to try to use one while making a silk appear. For instance, use the d-lite to produce light from the air, then place it in your hand. Do this a couple of times, then produce the silk. This works as long as you have a blue silk to match your blue d-lite.

As for keeping the audience lively, just be energetic. Your attitude will rub off on them. If you are going to do this to music, find some nice up beat stuff. Don't try to make the music anything too weird though. You could also go for the classical approach, and use some more upbeat classical music. I think this would work, if you could pull off the look, as silk can be considered more of a classic of magic.

You also have to make sure that you feed them enough grit, as to help them digest their food. Giving them too much, or too little, can have negative outcomes.

Then there is the process of training them, which can be quite an ordeal. Then once you do get them trained, you can't always use them anyway. There are circumstances that happen that dove work can't be done.

After awhile, it may feel easy to maintain them, just like any other pet. But at first, it's not that easy of a task (given that they are going to be used for magic). It's not something that people should just jump into. That was my point. And it's not something people should take lightly.

Again thier not that Hard I suggest buying grit paper and putting it in the cage
Training them is Kinda Hard though It will take some practice
And to feed them enough just get A bird feeder and put that in thier cage
Sry but Im still not convinced thier hard to mantain,although liek u said they are hard at first but that last for like 2 days :lol:
