Some of these miracles we'll teach you have been performed by your favorite magicians on TV.


Until now, the craftsmanship that goes into these props has been too expensive to bring magic to the mainstream as a hobby.

& MORE .... 

We COULD list each one, but it would ruin the magic. 

This is OUR secret from now on, and most of these props will never be seen by the people you're showing tricks to. 

They stay in the background and help YOU do the magic.  Think of them as little helpers, letting you be as awesome as possible. 

Watch a trick being performed by Ellusionist Founder Brad Christian.... this trick is included in your new box of secret props from Tier 2.



Peter (aka Pabs)  

Peter's magic is as casual as his personality. Making best friends INSTANTLY with strangers and showing them real magic right in front of their eyes. 

His approach is all about catching people off guard, and he leaves being the most interesting person they've ever met. 


Chris (aka The Comedian)  

This beast of a man is Chris. (Not Connor McGregor) 

Chris is the joker of the team. If our project is successfully funded, he'll be the one cracking jokes and making you laugh as you learn. 

He favors magic that's mixed with gags to put his audience at ease. 


Adam (aka The Worker) 

Adam performs as a corporate mentalist magician at professional shows all around the world. 

He knows EVERYTHING about entertaining an audience and his tips and nuances on magic help you feel comfortable stepping into a crowd.

    I'm no master, not even a paid performer, but I know a good handful of tricks, I'm learning some cardistry, and my wife and family get a kick out of my tricks. My friends are aways amazed. I was hoping that with those involved in this kit, I would've gotten something more than a kids kit. With the exception of the Thumb. Which is too big. I've got small hands, and the thumb is made for an average full grown male. Kids are gonna struggle with it, most females any age- good luck, and those of us fellas with small hands... well- same.

    I was hoping that although some basic beginner tricks (that are mentioned upfront) there might be a few intermediate, and maybe an advanced or two. But, my 7 year old, autistic niece, figured out what was happening through over half of the tricks. And this was the first time I'd ever shown her any magic. Ever. So... yeah... I'm disappointed.

    Someone else also mentioned the "invisible" thread. Fishing line would work better than this black thread! Seriously, at least it's clear. This black thread is, well, BLACK- which is hardly invisible. Even with a black shirt- as the other reviewer mentioned. And I tried a black tee, and few different material button ups, AND a sweatshirt that has a gloss black print on it. Still it stands out. Now, I'm not even trying to rock that thread, but if I were, I couldn't. Misdirection can't help this problem.

    Well, I'm gonna put this back together nice and neat, and gift it to my previously mentioned niece. Maybe she can improve on the tricks.

    I think the kit is "ok". My main problem is the invisible thread. I recently just started getting into iet, and I love to perform with it, and I studied long and hard over thickness over it, the strength of it and the durability of it. And the iet that comes in the kit, is not considered invisible thread, if it's thick and black. I made a loop, and had it around my wrist, and I know that since I'm a magician, my eye might catch things other people won't, and so I looked through a mirror and put my arm far away from the mirror, and I could still see the thread. If I had a black shirt on, it's reflecting and you can tell there's thread. So all I ask is that if your going to make a kit that has iet, let it actually be invisible. And by invisible, I don't mean literally invisible. But hard for the human eye to see. I'm not going to perform the haunted deck to someone if they will clearly see the thread. And also don't put in the description of the trick that you'll be able to perform the haunted deck knowing the thread is visible. But other than that, the red balls are fine. The Sharpie is fine. Great explanation with the card tricks even though I already knew most of them. I do think that if your going to have a trailer where one of the guys bends the coin, that you put some kind of bent coin in the kit so people don't just have a bite off coin. In my opinion, "this is just my opinion" so many people know about the bite off coin already (even non magicians), and so I do kinda think that trick is a little old, but having a bent coin in there, would've been even better. I haven't gotten into every single thing in the kit, but all I know is I'm very disappointed with the thread. Mesika Thread is way better than this. Not even so thick. So if you fix your thread, maybe I'll give it 3
