Guinness world record for costume changes

Magician swaps assistant's clothing 13 times for world record

Magician Avon Lee has gained another Guinness world record -- swapping the clothing of his assistant Phoebe 13 times in under one minute to gain the Guinness record for costume changes. He won Hong Kong's first Guinness record last year.

Lee said he trained for six months with Phoebe – her professional name as a dancer – to prepare for the attempt on the record today.

A crowd of about 3,000 watched Lee perfom at Cityplaza in Taikoo Shing. As the alarm signaling one minute sounded, Lee showered Phoebe with glitter as she appeared in her thirteenth costume. Here is a video of the performance.
