    WooHoo!

    Last year I built this Vamp kit after seeing one in a show on the History Channel.

    A few weeks ago I got an email from Fortean Times magazine UK to use the images of my Vampire Killing Kit for their feature on Vampire Kits.
    Ive never read Fortean Times but from what ive gathered its a magazine about the weird and bizarre (ghosts, cryptozoology, oddities, freaks, etc).
    Also wrote a small blurb on the creation process.

    Unfortunately I sold this kit a few months back....Oh well.

    I've read Fortean times for over 20 years, great mag. Interesting whether skeptic or believer.
    They give nice balanced reports of weird events without embellishing them , sticking to the facts and more than often debunking hoaxers/fakes.

    Im not much of a believer, but I do like info and stories on the strange and bizarre. Anytime im in a town that has a Ripleys museum I always try to go.

    Awesome kit, and ever awesome-er that you got on the cover of the mag! I've never heard of that magazine, but it sounds like it'd be right up my alley!

    Congratulations! How many copies have you bought? -_^

    THAT is sexy in a suitcase. Did you document the build up of the kit? I would love to see what all was involved in its creation. Any plans to do more?

    THanks guys.

    BTW, I just got back from visiting Barnes and Noble, and to my surprise, they actually sell the magazine there. Unfortunately this latest issue is not out yet.

    Awesome man, congratulations!!

    Funny, I was at an antiques flea market just today with a friend and I was explaining to her why I was looking for a particular box - so I can finally get started on my kit.
