  1. Hi Eva and Acadia,

    You are invited to the Ghostly World 1 year anniversary on August 7th, 2013 at http://ghostlyworld.wordpress.com. Sadly, the only cookies we’ll be having are Internet cookies…and I think the bakery burnt them.

  2. That’s the exact illusion I saw when I went to Professor Vanessa’s Wondershow, a kind of re-invented sideshow in tents lining the walls of the theatre. The acts in them used illusions like the one above while acrobats etc performed on a small stage in the middle. It was great!
