If you liked Hanky Panky, you will love The Color of Mystery. Silk magic has that flash and color that really grabs people's attention. Combine that with an engaging story and you have a "pack flat and play big" entertaining piece of magic.

Scott has taken the classic Color Changing Silks and given it a fresh and modern approach by adding a two-phase killer ending that seems totally impossible. After changing the silks from white to red several times in funny and engaging ways, you then produce a chain of multicolored handkerchiefs and then immediately make them vanish, leaving the audience's jaws wide open.

The full performance script is included that builds from the timeless patter used by the late, great Billy McComb and other past masters. Scott adds his own jokes and bits of business that keep the audience interested every step of the way. This is six minutes of strong magic that can fit right into your show as a personality piece or feature act.

The best thing is that this routine is so completely bulletproof, it can be used in close-up settings or even for strolling magic. The routine completely resets itself, so you can do it over and over again all night long!

Scott also covers silk care and maintenance to keep your props looking fresh, and the entire kit comes with all the silks you need, the two reimagined gimmicks, written instructions, and a full training DVD. This is a real showpiece that is simple to do, which allows you to focus on selling your personality across the footlights. Audiences will remember this routine because it is charming, simple, direct, visual, and extremely entertaining!

The Price is rediculous Report this review

Honestly, I wish I could score this higher, because the routine itself is nice. The problem with the whole thing is the cost. What you receive is about $20 worth of gimmicks, which means the routine is valuing itself at over $150.

I would be happy to pay 30 bucks for the routine. The total price for the effect should be about $50. Thats 1/3 of what it costs.

An old trick made new-ish Report this review

I am a big Scott Alexander fan and have several of his releases. This is his variation of the color changing silks with a multiple-silk revelation at the end and it resets as you perform it. The routine is good, but I can't say this one is so unique that it merits the extreme price tag. I think this should be priced under a hundred dollars and it would still be more than fair. You could put this together yourself for about thirty dollars (which does make creating backups for my stage case, close-up case, and kids show case much easier). But I am pleased that it does come with all the props ready to go (after about a five-minute one-time setup) out of the box.

Again, I'm a big fan of Scott's magic and have a LOT of his releases, but this is one I feel was way overpriced for what you received. Yes, I understand the desire for exclusivity in magic, and it is six minutes of magic that resets itself, but it really doesn't feel like it has that "Scott Spin" releases like "Nailed It", "MIB Unplugged", and even his recent card stab routine "Back Stabber" have. This feels more like it could have come from a generic beginner's magic video.

Don't judge Scott's other excellent products by this one.

This works for me Report this review

I'm in the minority here. I like the trick. You will be disappointed with the props. But let's be honest, what trick are you not disappointed with the props on? Come on. I got over that then I saw how practical they are and how thoughtful the props are. Now I realize the disappointment was mine, and I am way past that and I love the simplicity and how well the routining works. The routine is great. No one is going to argue with that, it makes sense. One of Scott's greatest strengths is his routining--he knows how to end a trick and he does so here. I've gotten great reactions from this. I have trimmed out some parts and added some of my own stuff that fits me better. Overall, I like it a lot. Packs small, plays big and resets as you go.

I guess Scott does not care about selling to hobbyists because this certainly doesn't feel like a good value for the props. However like other of his releases the method is clever, practical and well thought out. I am a semi pro (I get paid to do magic but not a lot or often) and I find this a terrific and practical trick the definition of packs small plays big and the replacing the props when they wear out will be quite inexpensive. Good luck
