A few questions:- 1) Is it true that the lesser hand-wear you have, the cleaner the magic looks, and maybe even less distracting? What if the hand-wear is simple? 2) I don't usually wear rings at all. But now and then, they seem to compliment the effect I'm performing (say if the effect emphasises on something typically beautiful). But at the same time, I don't want to include it in my basic 'image'. Otherwise one of these days it is going to talk with a hidden coin and there vanishes the magic... 3) Is the magician not sticking to a character OR preventing from successfully creating a 'brand' for his magic OR preventing his audience from receiving a wholesome magical 'experience' if he changes his appearance from time to time? Not drastic changes (don't think Miley Cyrus)... say if we go back to the ring thingy...what if I wear it sometimes, but not always? 4) A non-appearance question, but something that's bugging me...Is it true that magic with other objects is greater than magic with cards? If you pull out cards, do people naturally assume that you're going to do something 'tricky'? With an average skill-set of course, not considering a Shin Lim kind of character.
