How about some eerie, out-of-this-world magic tricks for Halloween? Just take our simple magic effects and dress them up a bit, and you can enhance your themes and costumes. If someone is dressed up as a wizard, for example, how about performing a levitation or suspension of a small object? Or how about a mentalism trick–a bit of mind-reading or a prediction–to add to the fun?
These are easy to learn and perform and employ everyday items found around the house.
