Magic Wagon had another great year in 2021 and as I look at the items they produced this year I continue to be amazed how they keep coming up with new ideas and have also managed to maintain their quality even during the pandemic.
It is pretty easy to get a little confused (jaded?) with all of the glass and mirror penetrations that have been devised, a few of which can be seen here. Magic Wagon themselves have created at least seven:
- Atomic Glass Penetration
- Mod Quad Penetration
- Pagoda Mystery
- Silken Glass Mystery
- Ultimate Penetration Frame
- Impossible Glass Penetration
- Mystic Mirror
But I must say after seeing Madison Hagler’s incredible performance this moves right up the list. Not only does Madison weave an interesting story line during his performance he displays the prop perfectly and operates the gimmick flawlessly. Having spent hundreds of hours creating my Speed Demos I am very familiar with how long it takes to create such a smooth performance. Madison makes it look easy and effortless – or maybe he is just that good 🙂 Either way, I really appreciate the effort Madison – a really perfect performance. I look forward to many more in 2022!
Effect: A beautifully decorated wooden mirror with combined stand is displayed. The performer now taps on the mirror to prove that it is solid. He then places a wooden star trap panel over the center of the mirror before immediately pushing a marker pen right through the star trap, apparently penetrating the solid mirror! After the penetration, the panel is immediately removed to reveal that the mirror is completely unharmed and still perfectly solid! There is no explanation as to how the marker pen or any object of a similar size could have gone through the mirror! It looks truly impossible.
This is, unquestionably, one of the most clever and absolutely best penetration effects that we have ever produced.
Mystic Mirror has been inspired by the classic Canary thru Mirror illusion, however; with our version, it does not appear that it could work the same way as the original version did.
The wooden mirror and combined stand measures approximately 17 cms tall and 12.5 cms wide and has been completely handcrafted from natural aged teak wood with a lightly distressed oil finish.
