Quick where can I buy a kit?

Magically,
Walt

Well, after seeing all the above, I'll be happy to make one up for you... if I ever catch up. Smile On the other hand, a side order of garlic fries might do it.

I was at a gun show a while back and a guy had one of these for sale!
It looked really cool and cost a little over $1000.

I took pictures of it on my cell phone and will try to upload them later.

Yop, give us a little feedback about your search of Blomberg, but keep some Surnateum info secret. Smile

George yes! There should also be a high-tech 21st century version of this….
with Garlic Fries and Ginsu Steak Knives included perhaps!

There is the 'AUTHENTIC'...and there is the Movie Prop version. The Authentic may need to be in a serious museum collection. The Movie Prop version is quite suitable for a Magic Act and need not be belittled. It's a theatrical PROP.

Also since Vampires are just as real now as they were then...the early version was also just a Theatrical Prop.

The conflict comes about only when providence is misrepresented...and when the more contemporary Props are over priced.

Just my 2 cents...no more than that.

Agreed, but for 10000 to 40000 $, you don't buy a movie prop. Some of those kits have been sold by Christie's for sums between 10 and 40k $.
And, if you present the kit as a real one, it must baffle the antiquarians, so be prepared with very solid argument.
If you make such a prop, it's interesting to be well documented, otherwise a simple plastic with holy water is good enough.

Plus garlic fries are an insult to Belgians and Belgium's most cherished gourmet speciality Smile

Wolfbane sounds rather poisonous...
But Belgian werewolves will appreciate.

Completely agree Mr. Curator.The 'bogus' kits being overpriced (like I mentioned) are ridiculous.

I would encourage others though, if they have penchant to do so, to make Prop Kits for the many who are attracted to them. A $100 or $200 kit would be fun to have without breaking the bank and not challenge the 'Authentic' ones in the least. In fact make your own up...even using Antique Crosses and Antique Prayer books (mine cost $8 on eBay is in German and is perfect for the look.) it might cost $75 to do a nice one minus a pistol. Mine only lacks the Silver Bullet I want to include and the Pistol. But my personal kit will be an all purpose kit and do in the Wolfys as well. Smile

My kit will be strictly Universal Studios inspired. Smile

I made this one for my daughter's anniversary for less than 80$ there are 2 antique silver coins to cover the eyes of the defunct in the kit). And a Buffy Slayer kit is even less expensive.

Nice kit!!! By the way I do NOT intend to make kits for sale. (Don't bother asking.)

What is that 'long' thing?

Curator, The red book in your picture posted above seemed oddly familiar, so I checked my own personal library, and I think I have an english edition in my own collection. I got it in some book store years ago. I got it mostly as a bit of a joke, but it ended up sparking an interest in vampires that has yet to leave me. It is a truly unique collection of vampire lore from all over the entire planet.

I always thought I might like an Anti-Giant Kit. But everything would have to be so big.

I resisted the urge to pick up a "sick kit" from the local church fair flea market last night. I may return if it is still there. They usually don't recycle consecrated items in such a manner.

This is the box that would contain oils and ritual materials for annointing. The containers are present, but devoid of oil and holy water, which may be one reason why it is on the table. It is also only five bucks.

The spiders living in the cobwebs of my brain this morning also thought it would be funny to see a "vampire killing kilt" outfitted with all of the stuff a holy highlander might need to dispatch Dracula. It is a little less funny now that the caffeine has kicked in, but interesting nonetheless.

The sound of bagpipes should be enough to scare the bloodsuckers.

"You just need a magic bean. "

I have no doubt that is THE most brilliant retort to a silly comment in the history of the Café. I am humbled.
