Following the tour, you’ll sit down for a dazzling magic performance and get the chance to speak with the performers after the show.

Confetti Eddie's Magic Show Exposition Avenue is a strange little street filled with diversion and magic. No, really, magic. You'll know Confetti Eddie's magic parlor (823 Exposition Ave.) by the smaller-than-life dinosaur out front -- an artifact of his own creation. Inside, you'll be welcomed into a show that is equal parts art and magic. He performs tricks with cinematic perfection, shrinking the un-shrinkable and making permanent things disappear -- like heads, for one. Working with his lovely assistant Karleena, he fills his magic show with marvels that will make your jaw drop. It's your chance to grab tickets to see the Magic Show, which takes place at 8:15 p.m. Friday. They're $20 each, but they disappear faster than Karleena's clothes -- and you won't want to miss that trick. More information is available at sidetour.com. photo by Karlo X. Ramos.
Sideshow Spectacular Fire eaters, sword swallowers, and bearded ladies. It's a night of old fashioned freak show magic that you won't want to miss. The party starts at 9 p.m. at the Doublewide. For an entry fee of $12, you'll get illusions, music from The Free Loaders, and cheap drinks.

Featuring the Enigma , Confetti Eddie and the Lovely Karleena .
Confetti eddie and the lovely karleena performed at the windy city burlesque fest in chicago. The strip basket illusion has been a hit at all our festival appearances. Check out the video link to see our performance. Special thank you to everyone at vaudezilla !
From London we made our way over to the netherlands and performed at the amsterdam burlesque festival weekend.
The festival was held at the sugar factory and started at midnight. I had one of my best shows that night and enjoyed performing to the packed house.
We had a great time performing at the london burlesque festival 2014.
The week we were in london the festival was the number one thing to do and our act was featured at the red carpet roll out at conway hall . It was a great experience to meet and perform with international performers and we made sure to take lot's of photos.
Working with Sarah Jaffe for a second time was great , this time we added a fresh perspective to a long time venue The Granada in Dallas . Read the review from the show HERE.
"What set this night apart from her many sold-out shows around town were the correlating videos. Almost every song had its own digital montage splashed across the screens, making the evening feel more like an art installation than the usual concert. While some were simplistic scenes from nature or shapes, others were a sort of remix from the original music videos. Most notable was the chopped-up version of “Glorified High,” featuring 11-year-old Emily Hoffman break-dancing and moon-walking to the fuzzy, electronic track.

It has been a pleasure inviting guests over to my personal studio and performing close up parlor magic .
Check out a review of my first studio tour HERE .
"Ruiz builds his own props and sets. An artist and tinkerer from an early age, he has a limitless capacity for innovation. He's done lighting for Erika Badu, had extensive success in video, sculpture and two-dimensional art, and now he's included himself in the execution of those merged media through a performative routine of classic sleight-of-hand. And while that may seem an unconventional path, it's extremely artful and unified, making the show a stylish extension of his talents." Dallas Observer Blogs . Special thanks to Jamie Laughlin for visiting the studio and the review.
2013 was a great year for my video and Lighting work . I was fortunate enough to work with Sarah Jaffe at Dallas City Performance Hall as her lighting and video designer.
I also designed for the band Ishi and had many great shows including shows at the Perot Museum and The Granada in Dallas.
Lighting up the Art Con stage this year gave me a great chance to experiment and cut loose.
This year I also worked with fashion designer Yasmina Johnson for her fashion show at Kirk Hopper Fine Art.
And once a month I am the set and lighting designer for The Ruby Revue Burlesque Show. Hope you enjoy the photos most of them are marked with the appropriate photographer appologies to those that didn't .
Special thanks to photographers Dylan Hollingsworth , Karlos X. Ramos, Hal Samples and Jarrod Fresquez for being there to capture the action.
Currently residing in the Exposition Park neighborhood of Dallas, TX, the Oak Cliff born visual artist Edward Ruiz couples his current artistic interests in digital video mapping and real time sound analysis to seamlessly marry geometric sculpture, music, and mathematic technology as a means to create all encompassing sensory installations of sight, movement, and sound. Along with these artistic endeavors, Ruiz rounds out his repertoire with the mediums of resin cast sculpture, acrylic paintings, and character-driven toy-making.
