I have had several people from time to time while working at resturants say: "Cool, but can you levitate?"
Have any of you working resturants come up with an effect you can do at resturants? your usually surrounded and most self levitations are all angle sensetive. Each has its own positives and negatives.
I like "E" version that has that lift but $600 and its still VERY angle sensitve.
Personally, I find self-levitations a waste of time, effort and money...but that's just me. It's not part of what I do.
When someone asks me if I can levitate, I say, "No, I don't levitate, but I did raise a child once...[pause]...she's in college now." Everybody laughs and I continue on with the reason I am actually there.
Notice, though, my choice of words. I say, "I DON'T levitate." Not "I can't levitate." The subtle suggestion there is that I could if I wanted to...
Of course, you don't have to bother with that sort of psychological subtlety. I mean, what's the connection between doing some close-up magic and actually levitating yourself? Does the ability to do one follow from the other? In other words, does being able to make someone's thought-of playing card appear face-up in a face-down deck somehow imply that you should be able to make yourself fly around the room? IMHO, no. If, however, you are somehow giving people that impression, you better be able to back it up.
