I just attempted a chameleon spell and kept it up then I walked out to my dad (who was on a laptop with headphones in) and sat down near him. He didn't take any notice,I kept concentrating on the spell and got up and left . I can't tell if it did work or he just didn't bother with me plz help?
Spells that make you invisible or appear the exact same as your surroundings do not work quite like they seem to on the television.
In life, a spell to make you less noticeable would simply work to help persuade those around you to ignore the fact that they might have seen you. But there is no guarantee, for it would be tricky to tell if something like this actually works.
If you were trying to truly make yourself invisible, it did not work, however, if you were just trying to go unnoticed, it may have worked.

I suspect in this case since your Dad was on the computer and wearing headphones that he simply was too focused on what you were doing and didn't notice that you were there. Or, since you just sat there quietly he felt there was no interaction with him that you were seeking. I highly doubt it had anything to do with your spell. Always think of whether there is a probably mundane reason before you go looking at magical ones. Nine times out of ten you'll find that the mundane was the actual reason why.
Thanks for all your answers They all helped me I asked him today did he notice me last night and he said no :) hopefully he didn't notice me because of the spell instead of him not bothering to notice me.
On the matter of invisibility spells it is not a subject of optics but more about people noticing you. Spells can be performed so that you could walk amoungst a crowd wearing rediculus clothing but people will continue to ignore you. Granted such spells are hard and usually require the help of a spirit but it can be done. Aliester Crowley experimented with such workings and reportedly had great success. I believe such spells were used so that magicians could go about there buisness without anyone interfering with them. If you want to knoe if the spell works than try it again under more obvious circumstances.
