Last October, I signed up for the Secret Pumpkin exchange run by Shadow Manor. The idea is that you receive something when Halloween is far away, to warm your creepy little heart. In exchange, you send something to another pining Halloweenie. Yes, I made something, but you don’t get to see it until the recipient gets it. Be patient. What you get to see today is what I received from my awesome, awesome Pumpkin. Behold:
Yes, it is what it looks like: a vampire hunting kit, delightful in its completeness and authenticity. I am completely bowled over by this thing. I kept saying “oh man, oh man!” and giggling as I opened it.
Mallet (because really, pounding that stake in is harder than Buffy makes it look)
Wooden cross with St. Raphael medal
Wooden box to contain vials
Large vial for holy water
Flour of Garlic
Vial of collected vampire fangs
Mysterious key in pouch
Note in latin that basically says: “I am leaving you my holy kit to fight the evil Nosferatu that walks the night.”
A few more pics:
Wow. I want to figure out what every little thing means. Then I want to get an all-leather outfit and take the kit out hunting. Also, because she had to make sure I hadn’t moved, I got to know who my Secret Pumpkin was, so here’s a big, public THANK YOU, YOU ARE SO FREAKIN’ AWESOME to Jenna, the mistress of Shadow Manor herself.
