See the Jaw-Dropping World Record for Most Costume Changes in a Minute

By  | 

Recently, accomplished magicians Avery Chin and Sylvia Lim went after the world record for “most costume change illusions in one minute by an individual” on stage at China’s Happy Valley theme park.

According to Guinness World Records, the rules stated that “after every ‘reveal’, a completely different costume must be worn, and there can be no evidence of the previous outfit.” The pair were able to obtain 18 changes and 19 outfits in under a minute along with a special grand finale.

The previous record was 16 changes. Chin and Lim are originally from Malaysia, and interestingly, the previous record-holders for this category were also Malaysian and achieved the record only a few weeks previously.

The video of the record breaking feat was loaded to Guinness World Records’s YouTube page on September 30th, but it already has over 1 million views. Upon first watch, it seems fake since Lim is so incredibly calm. At each reveal, she’s standing in the exact position she was in a second earlier but in an outfit that looks completely different.

One YouTube commenter couldn’t help but make a joke, “when your girl takes 1 hour to get ready show her this,” CocoBams wrote.
