New Candy Magicians
at the Magic Castle!
A couple of fun new
Candy Magicians made their debut at the annual
Soapy Smith Party
fabulous Magic Castle in Hollywood
on July 8, 2009!
Candy Pop Haydn
and Candy Pop Haydn (2 of them!) were created especially for the event's charity
auction and I'm told they brought in a whopping five billion dollars!
Or somewhere near that. It is after all an event in honor of one
of history's greatest ever con men, Soapy Smith, so please note my
be just a little off. But I do have a candy Brooklyn Bridge
available for sale if you are interested, and I've also just found a
thousand dollars fluttering down the street, and if you'd like to
deposit one million dollars into my Swiss bank account I will split the
thousand with you! Only kidding! It is always an honor and
lots of fun to turn a respected magician into a fun piece of candy for a
good cause, especially for the fabulous Magic Castle! Thank you
for inviting me to contribute to this fun event!

Candy Mentalists at
Candy Mentalists turned Sin City
into Cindy City once again when they appeared at Mindvention
in Las Vegas, October 7 - 10, 2007!
Mindvention is a deluxe mentalism convention attended by top mind
readers and magicians from around the world! One of the highlights
of this year's convention was a special performance of the theatrical
mentalism show "Joseph Atmore is
Cindythings' "Magic Joey," aka Joe Atmore as Dunninger, with the Magic Castle's Mark Nelson and top
Bay Area magician Rich Myer in the talented cast, and super special celebrity
magic guests Johnny Thompson, Mac King, and the three beautiful Divas of
Magic who star in the Hans Klok show in Las Vegas, Nathali, Debby, and
Cindythings Bears in
Bear Tracks Magazine!
Two of my super cute
bears who were adopted at the
Silver Bruins Teddy Bear Show
appear in the
issue of Good Bears of the World's Bear Tracks Magazine!
Look for my black and white panda and blue and white panda "Little
Cutie" bears, who are official Good Bears! Appropriately, the
photo has a fun culinary theme! I love it!
Invade the Magic Castle!
Four very special
Candy Magicians were invited to the 3rd Annual Dai Vernon Bash at the
world famous Magic Castle held on Friday, September 28 in Hollywood, in
honor of the late wonderful close-up magician Bruce Cervon. It was
a fantastic evening and a great bash, and Joe and I enjoyed making lots
of new friends with sweet tooths. An amazing highlight of the
evening came when some of the Magic Castle staff turned their front desk
computer to show us what they were all laughing about--they were
visiting Cindythings.com's Candy Magicians Gallery right there in the
Magic Castle! The two Candy Dai Vernons and two Candy Bruce
Cervons made especially for the Dai Vernon Charity Auction got snapped
up by three lucky Candy Magic Art collectors, Steve, Steve, and board
member Mark Nelson, who so kindly invited them! I'm told they
brought in about a whopping third of the auction's proceeds! Thank
you guys for giving them good homes--and please don't eat them even if
they are delicious!
"Des Magiciens Mignon a Croquer"
(The Magicians Mignons to Chew)
My "bon bons au gout de
marshmallow" got a fun mention and some photos on a cool French
magic website, MagicZooM recently! What are "bon bons au gout
de marshmallow?" Candy Magicians! Merci beaucoup to
MagicZooM and to all the magicians visiting from there!
Guess what's the newest big thing
from Cindythings? My nice friend, super successful magic
products entrepreneur Marvin Berglas, came up with the greatest idea
recently--he loved my Candy Magicians and Candy Mentalists and
wanted to have an heirloom chess set made of my Candy figures
portraying each member of his family--but made out of polymer clay
so kiddies and doggies couldn't eat them and you could really play
with them! So now four complete Berglas Family chess sets--that's
128 handmade figures!--are happily residing with Marvin, his super
famous UK mentalist television star father David Berglas and his
lovely mom Ruth, and Marvin's gorgeous siblings and their families!
Hopefully that won't be the last you'll hear of Cindythings custom
family chess sets--watch this space!
Here's a peek at the sets I
made for Marvin, on my kiddie chess board!
The black playing set...
and the white playing set!
Aren't they cute?! I just
love the Berglas family!
Cindythings takes over Germany!
Okay, I didn't really take over
the whole country, just a five-star hotel in Cologne, along with Joe
(aka Cindythings' Magic Joey!), and Tiki, Cindythings' brand new
up-and-coming kittycat superstar! We were all there from
January 2 until March 16, 2008, with our super
friend, the world's foremost paranormalist Uri Geller and his super
nice family (Hi Hanna and Shipi!) while Joe creatively consulted on Uri's two mega-hit shows, Germany's
"The Next Uri Geller," and Holland's "Die Neuwe Uri Geller."
Both shows were similar
to the "Phenomenon" series with Uri and Criss Angel that
recently aired in the U.S., but even more fun because Uri performed
some amazing things in these series, and the performers got loads
more time to do their effects! If you didn't see the
broadcasts and want a chance to check out some clips from the shows,
you can find lots of them on YouTube--check out my favorites Vincent
Raven and Alexander Hartmann and Nikolai Friedrich (of Flicking
Fingers fame!) from the German show, and Aaron Crowe
from the Dutch show, they're all just great! Watch closely and you may
even see me
in the audience! That is, if I wasn't too busy eating all the candy in the green room, working on
Cindythings' newest Candy collection, or running up and
down the corridors with Tiki!
Check out Uri's fabulous
website--Candy Uri Geller made it into
Uri's column! Here's a shot of Uri with him!
When I get a chance I'm going to
put on a gallery of some of the great photos I took in Cologne and
Holland! Including my snaps of every teddy bear I saw in a
shop window the whole trip!
Look Out, Heidi Klum!
Well, it was bound to happen--now
I'm an Uber Celebrity in Germany! When Joe called the
Ich Liebe Koln (I Love Cologne) tourist authority to order an "I
Love Koln" tee shirt for me, they were amazed someone was calling
from California and demanded to know everything! When Joe told
them he had worked on The Next Uri Geller television show there
(which was a number one hit!) and that it was going to San
Francisco, they were so excited they asked him to send a photo of me
wearing it for their website because they only had one celebrity on
it so far--Heidi Klum! Now they have two--Joe sent it
and they put it on the very day they got it! Don't tell the
Supermodel Union all I got paid for this was an ice cream sundae at
Ghirardelli Chocolate Factory!
Candy Magicians make Fine Art
Wow, the Candy Magicians and Mentalists
have really made it now! Chicago artist and magician Chuck
Romano, the author of the award-winning 1997 book, The Art of
Deception, all about the long relationship between magicians and
artists, has just released a brand new, revised and updated 2008
edition of his landmark book. And he has included Cindythings' Candy
Magicians and Mentalists in his chapter on "Fine Art," which he
defines as "pure and unadulterated art — anything that has merely an
aesthetic value. Fine art does not instruct or serve a useful
function, rather it is meant to be admired and appreciated for its
own sake." I love it! He even put in a picture of
me! Chuck's book is out now, and you can get a copy, price
$65, by contacting him at
firstname.lastname@example.org! It's just an awesome, beautiful art
book chock full of all kinds of great art and magic artists and I'm
so thrilled to be included and also just to have a copy! Here's a look at the cover and the part about my
Thanks so much, Chuck!
