Vampire Killing Kit by PReilly Vampire Killing Kit by PReilly
Been working on this on and off for a while during whatever spare time I had. 15 minutes here, half hour there, etc.

Supposedly these types of kits were produced during the 19th century for those traveling to Europe.
Either there was a belief in vampires back then, or they were simply made as a novelty for European travelers.
Although many of these kits reside in museums, some claim they are all fakes (produced in the 20th century).
Some claim that they were indeed around during the 19th century.
Either way, I thought it was a pretty cool conversation piece to I decided to try my hand at making one.

The kit includes -

- 1849 Colt pocket pistol
- 10 ball bullets (concealed in one of the compartments)
- a brass and copper powder flask
- .31 cal ball bullet mold
- one percussion cap tin
- wooden mallet
- two wooden stakes
- two mini crucifix stakes
- Rosary beads (concealed in on of the compartments)
- one metal and wood crucifix
- one dagger
-1873 bible
- Knotted rope
-"Vampyre Killing Kit Handbook"
- Map of Romania
- one bottle of Holy Water
- fifteen phials of apotropaic syrums, potions, and repellents.
-One syringe

Phials contents include -
- Holy Oil
- Garlic Powder
- Liquid Garlic
- Consecrated earth
- Wolfsbane
- Hawthorn
- Brimstone
- Wild Rose
- Root of Mandrake
- Elixir of Vitrol
- Vampyre syrum
- Poppy Seeds
- Mustard Seeds
- Romanian Millet
- Lunar Caustic

Awesome! I hope you are not offended by this, but this case reminds me of the case that Joss (part of the Slayor Society) carried since he was a vampire hunter. Amazing!
