How long does it take for you to get changed? No matter what your answer is, this Malaysian magician duo has got you beat - they just broke a world record with 18 costume changes in one minute!

The title was previously held by fellow Malaysian magicians Mark and Pinky of Vivas Magic, who broke the record on 11 September at an event in Sunway Pyramid.

Avery Chin and Sylvia Lim completed 18 changes of 19 costumes, bettering the previous record by two outfits and gaining themselves the Guinness World Records title for 'Most Costume Change Illusions In One Minute'

The duo made the attempt at a Happy Valley theme park in Wuhan, Hubei, where a host of magicians were invited to perform at to celebrate to upcoming national holiday week in China.

A Guinness World records representative attended the magical event to ensure that all the rules were followed. For example, a completely different costume must be worn after every "reveal" and there can be no evidence of the previous outfit.

The routine ended in a shower of glitter as Avery threw a bag of sparkly confetti over Sylvia's head as she completed her last - and probably most impressive - costume change from a short blue dress into a long white gown
