More Vampire Hunting Kits

Following up on Friday's post about last week's vampire hunting kit auction, here's an entire gallery of kits collected from across the internet.

The owner of the site has some interesting information about the "Prof. Blomberg" style kits, including the results of some actual scientific testing performed on one that found it's way into a museum. Not surprisingly, it was determined to be a very convincing fake created using period materials. Personally, I find these kind of kits even more interesting because of the artistry, creativity, and craftsmanship that goes into their creation. Their authenticity is, at best, secondary to that.
