I've dreamed of flying, always have, since I was small.

... maybe I cannot do that. But perhaps I can have the illusion of flying?

What is the best flying "self-levitation" trick available today? Price is not much of a worry, but I want it to look magical. I don't want to use fake shoes or to use "blankets".

Is this possible dear magicians?

When you say "flying self-levitation" do you mean:

How does David Copperfield gives me shivers EVERYTIME I see him! He's just so good at pulling on your heart!

That settup costs WELL over £100,000.

I will not reveal the secret here, because its such a beautiful trick. But its incredible and very, very clever. Like I said in another thread, this "flying" is the second best trick of all time I think.

This could NEVER be replicated in the street... but we shall see how far we can go :)


Edit:

Since starting this thread I have made a street routine that can be read in the Street Magic forum where I float myself and a random member of the audience 4-5 inches off the ground for 10 or so seconds. Any angle will work, even underneath.


I'm so pleased. It will take me a long time to make the gimmick, but it won't be expencive and relatively easy to master I suspect.
