Andrew Mayne, creator of Illusion EFX, Levitator and Gut Buster presents an amazing twist on a classic illusion.
Step into an upright cabinet made from two cardboard boxes and then visibly separate the two halves of your body! Slide the top box to the side and the audience can see both your upper torso and legs are completely separated. Then blow their minds as you lift your upper body up with your hands showing your waist is several inches off the floor of the cabinet and detached completely! The top box is then slid back and you emerge intact.
