Meow!  Something new!

There's a new little something fun to look at here at Cindythings, my Cats in Amsterdam Mini Gallery featuring photos of all the cats I captured with my camera when I spent last winter there with my husband Joe, aka Magic Joey, who was working on the latest season of our nice friend Uri Geller's hit European television series for Holland and Germany.  Of course we brought along Tiki, the official new Cindythings cat!  Check her and her friends out!  Meow!

  New Candy Magicians at the Magic Castle!

A couple of fun new Candy Magicians made their debut at the annual Soapy Smith Party at the 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 figure might 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 Mark Nelson for inviting me to contribute to this fun event!

The Candy Magicians Gallery!

As featured in Magic Magazine, August 2007!

And as seen at MAGIC Live!

If you're visiting after reading about Cindythings and the Candy Magicians and Candy Mentalists in Magic Magazine, or because you're one of the 1000 attendees who saw them (and me, Cindy!) featured at the August 19, 2007 Opening Cover Party for MAGIC Magazine's spectacular convention, MAGIC Live! at The Orleans in Las Vegas-- thanks so much for coming!  (Now you know why they called the dealer room Candy Land!  Although I think it was a balloon sign typo and was meant to say Cindy Land!)  I had a blast sharing some sweet candy fun with all of you, making tons of awesome new friends, and turning Las Vegas into Cindy City for a few days!

I hope you'll all have fun visiting my Candy Galleries, my Cartoon Gallery which features over 100 cartoons about Mentalists, and my Chrystal Dunninger Museum, which includes loads of info and exclusive pix of Dunninger, the world's greatest mentalist!  You'll probably also enjoy visiting my Art Gallery where you'll find all sorts of magic and mentalism-related art sprinkled throughout, and visiting my Cindythingarama where you can see a certain fun Cindythings character named "Magic Joey" who looks suspiciously like famous mentalist Joe Atmore!  And be sure to visit my Cindythings Shop at Cafepress--you'll love my fun Candy Galleries, Cartoon Gallery, and Chrystal Dunninger designs on all sorts of fun tees and merchandise!  You need some!  Click to Cindythings Homepage for all these fun links!

I'll be adding lots more of my new friends to the Candy Magicians Gallery very shortly, including The Flicking Fingers, Bill Malone, Hans Klok and the beautiful Divas of Magic, Dana Daniels, Cyril, Guy Hollingworth, Marvin Berglas, Mac King, Johnny Thompson, and more fun surprises!  So be sure to email me so I can send you an email notice the instant I update the gallery with fun new Candy Magicians -- or just to say hi!  Let's stay in touch!

Candy Mentalists at Mindvention!

 The 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 Dunninger" starring 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 Zarina!

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 Winter 2007 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!

*****************

Candy Magicians 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!

 

*****************

Candy Checkmate!

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 nice 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 History!

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 crmagic@comcast.net!  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 candy figures!

        

Thanks so much, Chuck!

The September 2008 issue of Bears & Buds, a great online magazine all about teddy bears and the artists who make them, features a picture of me at Pat Moore's San Jose Teddy Bear Show on July 20, 2008.  This was my third time doing Pat's great show and convention and I had so much fun!
