Playing cards?
No, but in a far off way you're more on the right track than anyone else so far.

some "trick" relevant... something the average person would consider to be some sort of "magic"?

Yope. You're definitely on the right track, but "magic" would be a bit of a FA.

I'm not even sure what these are, which leads me to believe No. But enlighten me. :)

parlor tricks involve more sleight-of-hand, etc. to perform, usually card tricks, disappearing/reappearing coins, etc... something that "could be done in a parlor, or room".... as opposed to full-blown magic tricks, like sawing someone in half...

OK, definitley not this, but this is yesishly on the right track. It's certainly not magic, but as the puzzle states, people are wowed.

does your wowing activity do so because:
it is difficult to do?
it looks wow-worthy?
it is simply unusual?

Actually, I wasn't referring to grammar spelling....but I think I know enough about this to quietly withdraw.

Can you control when it happens? do it at will? or does it just happen?

A fair-skinned friend of mine can turn her face a rather surprising shade of purple on command. Any similarity?

Is the color a reference to skin-color? and is the way-off playing-card clue a reference to the Spades suit (apologies to our African American friends)?
