Does Fashion Matter When Doing Magic Tricks?
Dressed For Success
So you have an awesome magic trick you want to perform on somebody. You’ve practiced it thousands of times, perfected it in front of the mirror and now are ready to take your act to the streets…ok maybe not the streets but to one of your friends or family members. But wait….what are you going to wear??? You say “What?, who cares what I am wearing?”. Let me tell you something, image and presentation is everything, it is like giving your audience the total package. What is the first thing people see?? It’s you of course, this is your first chance to make that great first impression on someone before even doing your magic trick bit. You may think, I can wear anything to do my magic trick and it will still wow them and you know what, you are probably right, that is if you perform a great magic trick. But you can take that to a whole other level, and that is with your image. It’s like shopping for a car, you first look at the look of the car, the one that looks better is the one you will check out, even though the uglier car may have the same sport suspension and high powered engine underneath its covers, but you see what I mean.
If you are dressed in just your regular jeans and T-Shirt and performing tricks, yes you will still probably get great reactions, but if you stepped up your dress code a bit, believe me, you will leave even a more lasting impression to your audience. Think about it for a minute….think of all the great magicians out there from David Blaine, David Copperfield, Lance Burton, and the list goes on way beyond the people I mention here, you have an image in your head when I mention these people to you, right??? David Blaine, he wears nothing to fancy but he is usually in a nice black collared shirt and black pants, that gives him that mysterious look….David Copperfield, always dressed up to the T for his shows. Now I am not saying go out and wear a tux or your best suede suit to perform, but be aware of what your are wearing, it can be the difference from a good performance to a great performance.
