PhotobucketI’m in the mood for writing about magician‘s fashion. Yesterday I wrote about the utility pocket profonde. Today let me tell you about cummerbund servante.

cummerbund, according to dictionary.com, is “a wide sash worn at the waist, especially a horizontally pleated one worn with a tuxedo.”

PhotobucketLike everything in a magician’s outfit, the cummerbund has gone through some tweaking to serve the conjurer’s magical purposes. Magicians with a sense of fashion and practicality have turned it into a utility tool to vanish and produce small objects. That innocent-looking waist sash has become a servante, where the magician can ditch objects into, or steal things from, to create magical disappearances or productions.

In the Philippines, a large number of magicians call this utility device topit.  Again, let me educate you.  It is not a topit. The correct term is cummerbund servante.

Stay magical,
