Note: The props are no longer supplied in the box indicated in the demo video by the supplier, we have lowered the price to reflect this. These are original sets obtained directly from Lebanon Magic Circle.
Lebanon Circle Magic is proud to present one of the most versatile props available for the bizarre magician, mentalist or storyteller – in fact any performer who wants to add that eerie edge to their repertoire.
Memento Mori – the Haunted Billet Switch Locket is an elegantly devious prop that will integrate into any show. Featuring over 80 images covering the whose who of the Victorian period and beyond from the Captain of the Titanic to the Jack the Ripper suspects and his victims, from Vernon to Houdini, the Elephant Man to Lillie Langtry, H.P Lovecraft to Crowley – if you have a theme to your show Memento Mori will fit it.
The Basic Effect
The premise is simple – a spectator folds a blank billet and places it inside the locket. The locket is closed and the spirit of the chosen icon is asked to leave a message. Once opened it can be revealed that blank billet now contains a message from beyond the grave.
Reveal predictions or demonstrate psychic ability
You take a billet, write a prediction on it and place it inside the locket. You ask a spectator to hold the locket and think of a number, you then open the locket, tip out the billet and it contains the exact number the spectator chose!
Make a billet vanish and reappear in another location or substitute the vanished billet for a palmed one. The possibilities are limitless.
If you’re familiar with billet routines you will be all too aware of what an invaluable performance tool this is.
The ingeniously compact mechanism is self working, fool proof and takes no practice to perform. Just watch the included DVD and you’ll be up and running. Wear the locket and you will always have an amazing impromptu effect at your finger tips
First choose which bygone subject will grace your locket (see a comprehensive list below), then select the colour the interior to suit the mood of your performance (this can be changed as often as you wish) red for lost love or romance or black for death. Then you’re ready to perform!
