I just received my copy of The Rice Papers with Homer Liwag. Yes, he was shipped to my house also. (That was a joke, in case anybody caught that. I know it wasn't very funny. I was just shooting for a bit of comic relief.) I was very pleased with this DVD. Homer is a delightful guy. His effects are great, and I will go in more depth. There are three effects/routines, whatever you'd like to call them. The first one is, Body Contact Basically the story is that you take out your contact. The twist is, that its HUGE, and utterly impossible to fit in your eye. Then you show that it is only made of rubber, but then proceed to magically turn it back to hard plastic or even glass. You put it away, and then produce a pair of glasses. I do like this routine. My favorite kind of magic is close-up where things produce themselves, and look like real magic. This is a workable routine. It will take some practice, but isn't a knuckle buster. -Homer teaches subtleties to finesse this routine. -He also gives you final tips and thoughts on the the effect Second is, Fogged So for Fogged, it is like a rewind type routine. Where you start of with a blank card, and in stages, you restore it back to the original card. This routine is great. Its very visual. Homer shows you how to make the gaffs, and how to use them obviously. The main thing that I like about this is that it looks just about as good in real life, as it does in the trailer for the DVD, except for the fact that it doesn't flash every time you do a color change. The third and final routine on the DVD is, Marksmanship The idea of this one is that you start off with a mini sharpie, and you visually 'stretch' it to a normal sized one. There is a nice little surprise in this routine that you can perform if you choose. Then you can proceed to change the sharpie into almost whatever you'd like. This routine is my favorite by FAR. It fits my style of magic perfectly. Its everything that I want in a routine. Plus it got my creative juices flowing, and I came up with a variation that uses lighters instead of sharpies. Overall, this was an awesome DVD. I read AsherF's review, and as he said, there is a lot of room for originality. I highly recommend this DVD, and for only $19.95, its a steal!
