I am loving, LOVING Double Cross & ParaPad

  1. I’ve been combining these two the past couple days and they FRY people

    Firstly, I get someone to think of anything. Then do the First DC “move” as I connect w their thoughts....this was mainly because I didn’t feel entirely justified doing the first move on the spec. I felt I needed a better reason to do it.

    Then I get them to “relax”

    Then I whip out PP and get them to write this down so they can show someone...

    Then I do a drawn out reveal...

    As they’re reeling...I begin the 2nd phase of DC - even MORE clean than before because they think the first move is part of the previous effect...so I don’t even look remotely fishy

    These are both such great gimmicks
     
  2. Love the variation man. Very creative!

  3. The best thing I like about it is the offbeat between the end of PP and DC.

    The spec really thinks I’m done when all of a sudden - on a whim - I try something else. It really reinforces the miracle
     
  4. That is pretty clever, I'm glad it's working out for you.

    I have one small concern, however. When they take the pad to write down their thought, their palm is going to be facing them. Of course, it may be covered by the pad itself but it's possible that they might expose the X to themselves in the course of handling the notepad, say if they transfer it from hand to hand.

    Of course, when they dont notice it, you have a miracle because they'll swear it couldn't have been there before since they were just "looking" at their hand.
