    I need ideas to make my nose bleed.

    Are there any tricks out there that cause a nose bleed?

    I would like to mix this in with Control and see what happens.

    I haven't seen a nose bleed but there are multiple ways to bleed from the mouth (gimmicked of course!!!) and B. Smith has a cool one out called Wounded.

    I was actually looking at that a few days ago.

    I just have this idea in my head.

    I perform Control. When I gasp for air and look up, I have a small nose bleed.

    Wounded has the 'tears of blood' thing. Tweaking that a bit will probably give you what you want.

    ...or you could just have them look up and you're crying blood. Isn't that freaky enough?

    :P

    I thought about this, but I feel that a nose bleed would add a realistic touch to Control. I think crying blood would be a little too much and a little to far fetched.

    I basically want to give the illusion that what I am doing can not be good for me. A simple nose bleed would set that off perfect.

    That is just my opinion.

    I don't think wounded will work with nose bleeding because of how "it" works.

    If you're a student, spreading rumors about the school bully's mother and barnyard animals will get you a bloody nose in no time. That's how I would do it. :D

    I helped co develop an effect with Cedric Taylor that uses a nosebleed as part of a reveal. You may want to talk to him about it.
