Nice tricks. Had you not said none of this is photoshoped I would have thought that that is what you did. Yes I did figure everything but the floating head out. I have a guess but I ceartainly wouldn't bet money that it was correct.
The rope part was definitely the best in my opinion, and I'm positive I know how you managed it, very clever indeed, although I won't say what I think for the sake of others. Some fantastic little tricks in here!
Great job! I can't decide if you used strings or a Lego stick or both. The only string I could see was around Cassandra's hair when only her head is still visible. (Or maybe I'm just fooling myself.) Once more, great work!
Fun with strings, a la Wes Pitter, I see. Nice manipulation of human preconceptions for these tricks. The growing bigger one was a little simple, but the half-visible lady was nice. Did you use a long exposure or a pane?
Very very nice job. I can only figure out how you got Cassandra to grow larger and reappear, but every thing else is still a mystery to me. And of course, it's against the rules of magic for you to tell me, so I guess I'll never know. :(
