no hands?
I have to agree... If u can't use ur hands to catch Ur head it just looks like Ur bending over while holding a wire up to ur neck. If u can't do it right its better not to do it at all.

There are a number of different individuals or small companies selling gimicks for the head drop illusion. However any that I have seen are a completely different method and different performance than Cyril uses, or any other professional demonstrations of it that I have seen. If you have to keep your hands in your pockets then you are not able to "catch" your head when it "falls." Catching the head (subtle as it is) ... Is the convincing point of the illusion. Why do you think the professional versions can catch their head?.... Because it otherwise is a weak illusion. If the hands have to be kept in the pockets then it looks like you are doing EXACTLY what you really are doing! its is best not to present the illusion at all if you can not catch you head with both hands. I can not over stress this point. It is very simple to make a gimick that will let your head "float" down your chest while your hands are in you pockets... But it is such a poor demonstration. I spent countless hours fabricating my head drop to be able to catch my head in my hands (without my shoulders rising as it happens). It was difficult... But so worth the trouble. I have heard of people using the pocket method and having someone else catch their head. Visually that isn't very convincing either because if someone else were to catch your head they would not slide it up the center of your chest to put it back on. They would lift it closer to them and then place it back on your shoulders. Basically... If you yourself can not catch your head at waist level with one hand under your chin and one hand ontop of your head (without your shoulders moving up or down from their original and natural position).. then please just do a completely different illusion... One you can do completely and convincingly. Otherwise you are just revealing methods and weakening good illusions. Please don't take this as me bashing anyone at all. Im just trying to preserve good magic... Which in the long run is in the best interest for everyone who takes magic serriously or focuses on it as their profession.

Head Drop
This is not the actual method used by Cyril Takayama. Notice, in his performance the hands are not in the pockets.
