Step 1: Helpers
The helpers will be the one who will hold the paper to block the glass(as seen in criss angel tv show mindfreak)
The purpose of blocking the glass is because,you dont want to reveal whats behind the paper,its where all the trick is
Make sure they hold tight and really pull it from the side,making sure they leave a space by the side for viewers to see that the glass is still there.
Step 2: The Glass
Before doing the trick,you will need to prepare the glass,cut it in such a way shown on the image below,then you will need a mechanism that enables someone to roll the glasss up and down from inside the shop.
So,this helper will roll up the glass when you are doing the misdirecetion,for example,taking off your shoes.When you are taking off the shoes,make sure you zoom the camera on the shoes so that your helper can do the dirty work behind those glass.He will push up the glass.By this time ,make sure your 2 other helper have already covered the region of the glass.
After that,you go inside the shop and simply pass through the paper,cause the glass is not there.
As soon as you get out of the paper completely,your helper in the shop have to pull down the glass fast enough so that it gets back to its original position.Now you can let your audience check the glass.
Step 3: The Signboard
The signboard is just there to create the illusion that the glass is always stationary.Actually,the signboard is not stick to the glass,instead,its mounted to the wall.See the picture.
