It is a stage illusion, not a living room illusion. They do make one for parlour. It is about 1.5 feet wide. Daytona Magic sells a nice one.

Why would you have to redecorate their furniture?

*replace the word "redecorate" with "re-arrange"

It depends. If you are going to have people sit in chairs in front of you, then it might work. But once people get on the sides of you or behind you, your stuck.

If you have chairs, in any setting, you don't have to worry as much about people getting bad angles. You can arange them how you want.

Well here is a something you might not have thought of. What happens while you do this outside the sun is shinning to the back of you. Guess what is more than likely going to cast a shadow??? Think about it! This is not a good effect to do outside. But that is just my opinion. But maybe it is something you should think about!

thats a VERY good point, but i think (not certain) that with an assistant, (my other magician guy) on one side and me on the other tilting the box, then our bodies should cover the shadow up, if we dom't completely cover it up then
iam not sure that will be a problem because the kids (i hope) should be distracted by the box.

Thanks for the tip, ill be sure to remember that when rehersing.

I was thinking about a way to remove that problem. So here you go and this would also remove any other problem of people on the sides as well. Get your self a couple of mic stands and a long metal pipe make your self some curtains that will cover from the ground up to head high. if you wrap angle the curtains on the sides it will block the sun. Plus you can set up all your other props up behind your portable stage curtains. Well I hope that helps you out.
