13 Days ’til Christmas

Vintage-Santa5As you might expect at this time of year, we’ve been very busy with the holiday rush getting packages out and orders filled promptly. I do love this time of year. Yes, because it’s busy, but also because it’s Christmas, and I have always loved Christmas with all that it brings.

We are SO very grateful to you for choosing Hocus Pocus for your magic. That is a fact that we are forever cognizant of and will do everything possible to retain your business.

This Week’s Visitor – Any Amyx

This week we had another visitor to the shop, Andy Amyx, a seasoned corporate magician and dove worker. In addition to his well established magical talents, Andy is also a very talented photographer having photographed some of magic’s most renowned performers.

Andy was in town for the day to perform at a company party and took the time to stop in and pay us a visit. We welcome anyone passing through Fresno or visiting the vicinity to stop in and tour the showroom and see us.

Christmas Deliveries – Delayed

I thought it prudent to mention that although UPS and the U.S. Post Office are doing their best, the holidays always bring increased traffic, thus slowing Priority Mail and all deliveries in general. Do yourself a favor and get your shopping done as early as possible to ensure delivery by Christmas.

Cue the Magic is Back!

Finally, it’s back. Been thinking about adding cue the magic to your act? Now is the time to order, before they disappear, again! The last time we had an instant sell-out and all were gone within 48 hours.

We are anticipating a repeat performance, and with Christmas, another rush is anticipated, so order yours now.

Finally back in stock, our supply is sure to be depleted very quickly.

Santa’s Hat

We thought this prop was timely and humorous, so we’re including it in this week’s blog. Tim actually performed this at a Christmas party last night and it got a BIG laugh.

With this new seasonal bit, which is a funny play on the old bathing beauty effect of yesteryear, you and your audience will see a bald Santa.

Effect : Santa feels as if he has lost his hat, he is unaware that his hat is with the magician. In the poster Santa is Bald with no hat but, magician show’s his kindness and gives Santa’s hat in a magical way.

Possibility : You could come with a hat and vanish it in the poster showing Santa back with the hat or you show Santa with a hat in the poster, pulling a real hat from the poster in a result bald Santa is left with no hat.

This trick is a perfect buy, it will create story, gives visual changes, will provide suspense with lot of humor, fun and excitement to your lovely audience … well the trick is also very easy and simple to perform.

A HOCUS POCUS SUGGESTION: This may be done even more comically if reversed. You can steal Santa’s hat and then restore it at the end.
