Look ad the moment where the green dress turns into purple.
Here you see that the man does something behind the women and the the top drops down into a purple dress.

This is a very old trick.


Twas' capitalised on by ABBA back in the eurovision song contest - you know, the one where they dance about for a bit and then rip their skirts off?

Unsurprising how they won really.

Anyway, i'm under the impression this is the same trick, just far more elaborate.

To the OP: What, you surely don't believe in magic, do you?

I'll second the comment about it being the work of the DEVIL! =)

Impressive stuff and that chainsaw act was pretty well done too. It was a little hokey, but the effect was great.

I have noticed that. It's very interesting.
It may be an old trick... but that still doesn't explain it.

I certainly noticed that she looks a bit "heavier" in the end (but I WAS looking for that, after all :-)).

This analysis of yours is really cool!
Thanks.
I'll go back and compare every sequence with it.

Be it as it may... they are really GOOD.

And, even not being a fan of stage magic, I must admit some illusions do have true POETRY to them.

I don't HAVE to... believe in it, I mean.

Am I the only one who thinks that there are two different women? When she changes from the black and yellow dress to the green one, not only her hair color changes, but it looks like a different person, judging from the arms and legs. The first women then drops to the floor, hiding beneath the tube used for changing.


That was my first impression, too.

It is the same woman, only her hair (wig) changes - but it's really cool how her entire EXPRESSION seems to have changed, too.

They are really good, these two.
I like them!

By the way... does anyone have an idea of how David Copperfield performed the "Orson Welles" bit?

That's was a very fun illusion, too!


P.S. I am sorry for not providing a link or anything, but I was thinking if anyone HAS an idea, then s/he has probably seen it already...
