    Description

    Blackstone "Kalanag Levitation" Costume. Named for the first magician known to have performed it, The "Kalanag Levitation" illusion was never performed by Harry Blackstone Jr., being ultimately removed from the National Tour due to time constraints. This costume was worn onstage however, by an assistant riding the elephant prior to its vanishing in the "Moorish Fantasy" segment of Blackstone's long-running Broadway show. The costume consists of a petal-sleeved body suit with attached harem pants, headdress, and scarves, and is in good condition with some fraying and soiling from wear, and small tears in the headdress, which is also missing a large jewel.
