This is a replica of a 17th century vampire hunter case.

It's comprised of a wooden compartmented chest lined with purple satin containing everything you need to protect yourself against vampires, including:



- Sandal-wood wall crucifix
- Holy Bible
- Hexagonal mirror
- Hidden Saint Benedict medallion
- Hand carved almond-wood stake
- Knotted twine
- Wooden crucifix necklace
- Sesame seeds
- Wolfsbane
- Holy water
- Garlic
- Vampire blood
- Wooden mallet

Everything is labelled in *real* Latin, according to tradition.
The chest lid is decorated with a haut-relief (faux) golden cross, that can be used in case of emergencies.

You can buy it on my Etsy shop

I'm in love with this.
I recognize most of the repellents, but why is the mirror hexagonal? And why is there a knot on the bible and the crucifix?

According to certain traditions, vampires are compulsive counters. Every time they find a stack of seeds, they feel the urge to stop and count, giving you time to run. Same goes for untying knots =)
I chose sesame seeds because they're small enough for you to have LOTS in a tiny space, but not too small a vampire doesn't see them =)
Sesame oil is also associated with life and cure in magicks =)

Incredible work on this!
There's a such thing as a vampire hunting kit? Aren't vampires supposed to be myth? =P

Thanks!
Vampires are as mythical as demons, but just like exorcists, there were vampire hunters back then ;D
