The Story of Scary Suggestions
The decision to shoot Halloween show ideas was born on the drive to KIDabra in August 2019. Sherry and I dreamed up an idea to use the Great Green Growing Machine as Frankenstein’s head. I shared the idea with Steve Petra and within minutes he sent back a script that was way funnier than I would have written. No need to reinvent that wheel so it’s all provided in the PURPLE PAINT CAN post. As I was making the props for Frank-can-stein, I decided to do a little more brainstorming to see what ideas we could find hiding in the garage. That’s how Scary Suggestions was brought to life. Enjoy.
Here’s an idea for a scary production. Video shows all.
Scary Smile Maker
Trick or Treat candy catchers are everywhere during the holiday season. How about using them to perform Smile Maker. Here are the links to all the Smile Maker products in the Studio.
ORIGINAL SMILE MAKER
SMILE MAKER 2.0
STAR MAKER & CLOWN MAKER
This idea uses our Switch Pop gimmick and the brain silk from our Get Ahead trick. Please note, Get Ahead does not come with a solid black silk. That was added from my stash of silks. If you’re a magician, you probably have a stash too.

The Scary Hamper is one of my favorite finds of the season. Lee Andrews is the finder. He send me a picture when he saw it in a Lowes and I was off to find it. At the time you see this video, it may not be available. But until then, here’s the link at Lowe’s website. HOLIDAY LIVING 55 GAL HAPHAZARD BARREL
