To celebrate the upcoming national holiday week in China, Happy Valley theme park in Wuhan, Hubei has invited a range of talented magicians to perform at the venue throughout the special occasion.
On Wednesday, two of the slickest magicians in the business attempted to break the Guinness World Records title for the Most costume change illusions in one minute by an individual.
Avery Chin and Sylvia Lim, who are both originally from Malaysia, completed a jaw-dropping 18 changes of 19 costumes, bettering the previous record by two outfits.
Guinness World Records adjudicated Charles Wharton attended the magical event to ensure that all of the rules were followed.
For example, after every ‘reveal’, a completely different costume must be worn, and there can be no evidence of the previous outfit.
Most costume change illusions in one minute by an individual finale
The sparkling finale saw Avery throw a bag of glitter over Sylvia’s head as she completed her last, and arguably most impressive, costume change illusion from a short blue dress into a long white gown.
The entire attempt was live-streamed on Chinese video hosting platform Youku.
Previously, the most costume change illusions in one minute was 16 and was achieved by fellow Malaysian magicians Vivas Magic at Sunway Pyramid, in Kuala Lumpur, only a few weeks ago.
