Dan Hauss, the creator of Flow, has created an eerie card illusion that literally brings your magic to life.

In this effect the spectator is shown a queen of spades that can be thoroughly examined. She is asked to place her hand over the queen and imagine her going to sleep. When she removes her hand, seconds later, the queen is sleeping! The magician waves his hand over the deck and the queen begins to wake up from her sleep. This happens slowly and the spectator sees the eyes gradually open. At the end of the effect the spectator can keep the card as a souvenir.

Dan has also decided to include two effects with packs of gum, Rewrapped and Gum Through Wrapper. Both of these effects are visual, practical, easy to perform and have been in Hauss's working repertoire for years.

Manufacturer Says

  • No specially printed card
  • The eyes are closed and open on the same card
  • Spectator can keep the card!

good trick Report this review

The gimmick works as it's supposed to and it's reliable however, I don't typically like to carry much stuff around and or buy refills. If you like what you see and can live with these drawbacks ....do it, it works and it looks cool

Sleeping Queen

Method:
Like all of Dan Hauss' effects the method is great and very clever.

Gimmick:
This effect does involve a gimmick, but once you have it with you, you are all set to go. I could not find my gimmick in the stores I went to so I must special order mine online, and the gimmick is cheap.

Set-up:
The set-up takes about 15 seconds, the only downfall here is that you must perform the effect with-in about a 30 minute time period, of the set-up.

Practicality:
The effect is super practical, and is very easy to perform in front of a spectator.

Teaching:
Nothing wrong here everything is gone over in great detail.

Quality:
The quality of the video is top-notch.

Reactions:
I am yet to try this out on spectators because of the fact that I do not have the gimmick yet, but once I purchase my gimmick, I will have a live performance of the effect up. I don't see why this effect would not get amazing reactions.

Bonus:
The Download/DVD has 2 great bonuses, they are both gum effects which are practical, easy, and hard-hitting.

Rewrapped:

This effect:
- You offer the spectator a piece of gum from an opened gum pack
- You show them the pack and then with a shake the pack rewraps itself instantaneously
- You then open up the pack again to show everything is clean

Method:
The method is very clean and to the point

Gimmick:
The gimmick is very clever and will take some time making it, you must remake the gimmick each time you do the effect, that is the only downfall to this effect.

Set-up:
Once you have made the gimmick you are set-up

Practicality:
The effect is very practical, and easily performed in front of spectators because you don't do anything that is not natural.

Teaching:
Nothing is left out here.

Reactions:
I have done this effect once and the reactions are very hard-hitting.

Bonus # 2 / Gum through wrapper:

The Effect:
-A pack of gum is showed from all sides
-Put the deck in your hand
-With a little shake a piece of gum penetrates the pack
- You then open the pack to prove that there is now a piece of gum missing

Method:
Well thought out.

Gimmick:
This is amazing, the gimmick is just so well thought out.

Set-up:
This will only take about 2 seconds to get into "position."

Teaching:
Nothing is left out.

Practicality:
The practicality on this effect is great, there is nothing not natural, everything is motivated and you do not do any funny moves.

Reactions:
I have not done this effect live yet but because of the visualness of the effect, this WILL get great reactions, as long as it is performed and well and the technique is there.

Practice:
This effect will take some time to get it to look right but once you have it down, you are good to go.

EVERYTHING:

Overall:
These effects are great to add to your collection of effects because all 3 of these effects are highly visual and very practical.

Easy Walk Around Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 10th, 2009
I truly didn't know what to expect when I purchased this. Other than the dvd you have everything else you need around the house. Super simple set up other than time. The only thing I don't like is it would take a short while to set up again. The extra tricks are also easy set ups. Great visuals for all three tricks. I would suggest getting this dvd if you enjoy doing walk arounds. Already I have impressed my wife with all three.

Cool Effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 12th, 2009
This is a unique method for a very visual effect. Dan offers an alternative method for those adverse to even the easiest SoH (Slight of Hand). This trick makes me want to check out "Flow".
