Vampire Killing Kit “Adalicia” was conceived and built by Gothic Artist CRYSTOBAL in January through April, 2015. This large-sized Vampire Killing Kit has been created in the primitive style of 1860’s Europe, for English and American travelers to the Transylvania region of Romania. Precise in every detail, this kit contains the original CRYSTOBAL trademark flintlock stake-firing pistol, cross stakes bound in leather, wooden mallet and large coffin nails, along with all the Vampire Slayer’s other necessities.

CRYSTOBAL is recognized as the premier builder of the world’s finest, most inventive Vampire Killing Kits, and is credited with inventing the “primitive” style vampire killing kit that is now so often imitated (but never duplicated in artistic style, quality and appeal). CRYSTOBAL has built numerous sets, props, and costumes for haunted attractions, stage and screen, including vampire slayer’s tools, vampire killing kits, and other paranormal/occult items. Now retired, he continues to build a precious few vampire killing kits each year. These kits are generally high quality collector’s versions of stage-ready props: they are much less expensive than props made to be used during hundreds of performances, and made to be used as display pieces only. By using new boxes, weapons etc. instead of antiques, he is able to recreate the beauty and style of his kits costing thousands of dollars…for just a few hundred dollars. These kits still maintain his commitment to the highest caliber art and quality, and come with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist himself.
