Ethereal Deck DVD (BLUE) Review

Official Review

For $38 bucks you get a well made gimmick, a well made DVD, a very good solution to the vanishing deck plot with a teeny bit of an exaggeration in the ad copy.

Let's get that part out of the way first. The advertisement claims you can do it surrounded. That's not even close to true. You cannot do it with someone behind you or even too far into your peripheral. During the performance segments he proved my point By flashing the gimmick a time or two. So it's a bit more angle-sensitive than the ad copy would have you believe.

However, the angles are still really good. Also, the effect is as clean as it looks in the demo. Other than a silk or a handkerchief, the DVD comes with everything you need to do the effect. You won't need anything extra - not even a deck of cards. The method is well taught with explanations for close up casual situations as well as more formal stand up situations.

The stand up version is much "safer" in my opinion, but both methods are legitimate and worth studying. I do think the price is a little steep. However, due to the nature of the gimmick, I don't see any other way to construct it other than individually By hand. So these gimmicks were probably all hand made. If that's the case, then I can relatively easily forgive the high price point.

If you like the effect (I do), then you'll be glad you bought this. The mechanics will be learned pretty easily, and with a little thought, the gimmick can be used for various other ideas.
