See-Thru Guillotine (with Stand + ATA Case) by Wellington Enterprises(c. 1994) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
The end of an era … 🙁
I purchased this beautiful, perfect illusion ten years ago and it was then and continues to be in my mind the best, most dramatic and most convincing large scale magic effect I have ever handled. I had hoped to work up the energy to do a few more stage shows in 2020, but after not doing one for seven years I think it highly unlikely I’ll ever do a stage size show again. I’ll still do the close-up at Christmas for as long as I am able and people (namely friends, family and employees!) want to see me but I just don’t see me finding the time or the energy for a bigger scale show.
So I have decided to sell this bad boy and wanted to take some fresh photos before it leaves my home. I must say a tear formed in my eye as I was taking the photos. I still love this effect, but it is time. Enjoy these close-up photos of what I consider is the perfect illusion.
Effect: From the designers and creators of illusions for some of the world’s greatest magicians, comes a new and incredible illusion based on the ever-popular head chopper effect: THE SEE-THRU GUILLOTINE.
This version of the head chopper is a real fooler. The stocks are transparent and the blade never leaves the view of the audience. This is also the only chopper, to our knowledge, that will cut vegetables above, below, and to each side of the head, while not harming the spectator’s head. The illusion can be done under all conditions, including up close and surrounded. The optional stand provides a convenient holder for the blade and has been designed to pack in the same case with the chopper. This prop has it all including built-in laughter, drama, suspense and ten minutes of solid entertainment.
This truly unique guillotine, from an original idea by Alan Wakeling, allows the audience to actually see the blade passing through the neck of the spectator. Imagine, as the laughter mounts, you thrust the blade down, visibly slicing and dicing vegetables above, below and on each side of the spectator’s head. The heavy blade dearly severs everything in its path … except your hero.
- Built rugged of solid oak with heavy-duty blade and thick dear stocks.
- Years of trouble-free service.
- Packs flat in its own easy-to-carry case.
- Perform surrounded.
