WHY MISTY LEE IS THE MOST BADASS FEMALE MAGICIAN AT THE MAGIC CASTLE/EVER
Also, seems counter intuitive to her boss magician powers but her life could also be a romcom
- •Let me preface this by saying I have wanted to photograph female magicians for the longest time. (I have a list of things I want to photograph in my phone) There aren't enough ladies in this field *shocking* 🙀
- •I found Misty Lee via YouTube and I knew we would get along. She is the Magic Castle's only full time female magician...The magic castle is an "exclusive" (you can Prob easily get a dinner reservation) magician's only club in Los Angeles
- •To teach herself illusion, she watched The Masked magician on fox
- •Her father was schizophrenic and so she developed a hyperactive way of reading people because she had to be that way with her fatherFor "theatrical seance" purposes
- •While trying to make it as a magician she worked as a dental assistant and was finishing all the pre req to go to dental schoolGotta pay the bills
- •A friend gave her a comic book about a female magician Zatanna, written by Paul Dini. "Dude you have to read this, she's got your mouth"
- •She writes to Dini, who is a legend in comic book space, "you clearly hAve an understanding of magic"They fell in love via email. They are now married!
- •"I don't get the call to be stuffed in a sexy dress and be a prop. I get the call because they've seen my straight jacket piece, and the guy said, "I need power and you're the only one I can find, and I've looked." "I don't want to be a generic chick magician"
- •"I'm doing jobs guys fight for. Middle fingers for everybody"Same!!! Yes!!!!!!
