Designer: Brian Daniel
Builder: Creative Magic
The Shadow Tent was the brainchild of Brian Daniel. Brian wanted an easy-to-transport Shadow Box illusion so he looked online to purchase a Shadow Tent. To his surprise, it had not yet been invented! The rest is history.
Dimensions fully set up:
5′ by 5′
54″ tall inside
65″ to the top of the poles
(The inside of the tent is a little less than 4′ by 4′ at the base.)
Dimensions in bag:
30″ long 8″ wide
(considerably larger than the actual tent rolled up, so it is really easy to pack in and there is room for the light and extension cord)
Only 10 pounds
The Shadow Tent is made with the finest materials, including super light-weight aluminum poles. It is specially designed to have the best angles of any shadow box on the market (notice the pole sleeves create natural flaps that easily conceal more than one person if you like). There is a zipper in the front that makes the tent look like a normal tent and the zipper can be used to show the tent empty. The whole front panel brakes away with Velcro tabs for a real cool appearance. The tent is specially designed to be able to revolve 360 degrees with a person hidden inside. There are a few hidden poles for stability and a hole in the top back for the light.
Shadow Tent was available exclusively through Creative Magic. However, in 2011, Creative Magic announced they were closing their online doors and moving on to other magic projects. None of their illusions have been license to be built by anyone other than Creative Magic.
Shadow Tent can typically be found for purchase online from various sellers. Each Shadow Tent illusion should come with a certificate of authenticity and performance rights.
