Vampire Kit



This 19th Century Vampire killing kit is an eerie display of how real vampires are to some people.

Hmm... I'm not 100% convinced that this is authentic. The crucifix looks a little too modern to me.

My bf Alex CF happens to make vampire hunting kits and the likes as a living. Chek 'em out - I'm sure you'll love them.

Love & (fake vegan) monkey brains,

Nice. Thanks for that link, Suzanne. And readers should check out Alex's work.

The crucifix doesn't by any means look too modern to me but I'm not an expert. (For me, it's just wondering whether the garlic would still be in a recognizable form.) And I appreciate people like Alex blurring the line of non/fiction as we become overly dependent on websites to tell us our history. The point is, ultimately, that I understand these kits to be genuine artifacts. Whether this one is or not, I've read of these kits existing as genuine and that's amazing to me.
