Magic download (video) by Luis Otero ($12.00)
Venezuela's Luis Otero is one of our absolute favorite magicians, and he is an underground force! His magic is highly original and his presentational style is pure fun. We asked Luis to headline our gala show at The Session last year, and with only a pack of cards, he commanded a standing ovation. Here are three of his favorite routines, never before published...until now.
Penelope Does it Herself: In this ingenious faro miracle, two freely chosen cards are used to create and find another selection. A complete magician-fooler!
Invisible Marks: An innovative new force that allows a spectator to find four Aces in the deck...and as an added impossibility you change the backs of the Aces to different colors.
The Invisible Card: This is Luis's beautiful rendition of The Mystery Card plot, in which a signed selection appears in the unlikeliest place. It's a handling variation of Jack Carpenter's wonderful classic "Mysterious" from his book Modus Operandi by Stephen Hobbs.

Customer reviews for Three Miracles
Highly recommended! In fact, I think it was worth the price just for the Mystery Card handling. It takes the framework that Jack Carpenter created and takes it to the next level. A real worker: practical, entertaining, and fooling.
Penelope Does it Herself fooled me bad. I can't imagine how Luis was able to come up with this routine.
Overall, this download is a great value and I'm going to have to go searching for more Luis Otero material. Great work!
Vanishing, Inc has struck gold (again) with "Three Miracles".
Luis Otero is a wonderful teacher and his personality is infectious. He comes across as a genuine and very likable person. ALL the effects are "keepers".
Do yourself a favor and spend the $10.00 NOW. You won't reget it!
The title tells the story - indeed, here are three *miracles* with cards.
"Penelope Does It Herself" is an impossibly free coincidence effect with a surprise second phase.
"Invisible Marks" is an effect where the spectator locates the aces - but with a kicker ending.
"Impossible card" is a wonderful rehandling of Jack Carpenter's "Mystery Card".
All of the effects are relatively easy to do, but (like everything) will require practice to get smooth. Luis puts a lot of effort into teaching the effects, so everything is really clear. Yet another excellent download from Vanishing Inc!
Three miracles for 10 bucks... that's exactly what you get. This is pure gold and for $10 is a steal.
I perform Penelope does it herself every time that I can. It's a fooler for sure and the most baffling thing is that I can't think of how the hell did Luis came up with this.
