Head Twister

Clothiers Cranial Convolution Contraption

* IN STOCK *

For decades, Magicians around the globe have mystified their audiences with classic Head Twister Illusions of various makes and models. Now, Tim Clothier has designed the preeminent Head Twister for Illusion Projects. This new Head Twister easily converts between the traditional two-person version, with the Magician twisting the head of an Assistant, and a solo version, where the Magician can twist his own head. The Performer sits within a metal framework highlighted by an open-faced box just large enough to enclose a human head. The Performer manipulates a small gear-crank on one side of the prop, which compresses the box to fit the Performer’s head tight and snug.

The Performer hand rotates a crank-wheel attached at the opposite side of the prop, activating a belt-drive, which, in turn, spins the box and twists the performer’s head around. The Performer’s face can be clearly seen through the box’s open front with each revolution of the box. Reversing the direction on the hand-wheel, the box and the Performer’s head twist back into their original positions. Finally, the Performer steps out of the Cranial Convolution Contraption, head and neck intact—completely unharmed.

Special Thanks to Duane Laflin for allowing Illusion Projects to elaborate on his seated Head Twister concept.
