Last year for Christmas, I made my son-in-law a zombie tin and magnet set (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=366989.0).  I had an opportunity to see his work space a few months ago and it was the only personal thing he had by his computer.   Smiley    Obviously, I need to up my game this year.  I came up with a miniature vampire hunter's kit.

It's got a cross, bible, wooden stakes, mirror, bat illustration, a vampire skull sitting on top of a spool of silver chain, a revolver with wooden bullets, vials of holy water and blood sealed with red wax and a garlic braid (which cackle helped me with). 



Here are some of the items separate from the case, so you can see them better.


I covered the outside of the case in brown alligator, it's an altoid tin.  Very unassuming, eh? 


Before I finish glueing everything in, any suggestions for something I may have missed?

Haha!  This is awesome - love the garlic and the tiny wooden stakes.  I think he might need some sort of mallet to pound those stakes  through - mightn't he?  Wink
  And wooden bullets!  Who knew??  Hilarious!!

Thanks Aislynn!  The vampire skull is one of those carved skull beads that I molded tiny poly clay fangs for and baked very carefully.  When they came out of the oven after about 5 minutes, I just glued them on.

Thanks everyone!  I was having the toughest time figuring out how to display the silver chain when I remembered purchasing some large chain at Home Depot.  Real chain comes on spools so I unraveled a tiny spool of thread.

I have a little dagger (Miss Scarlet in the Kitchen with the Dagger).  A tiny light bulb/UV light contraption might be fun to make!  Yes, Racky, I'm thrilled my daughter will have protection from teeny vampires, but not until after Christmas.   Cheesy

The garlic heads are made of tiny bits of polymer clay, and they're strung on some waxed jewelry twine.   Smiley

This is awesome. How about vervain? I know at least a few vamp hunters that keep it in their stores.

I might suggest adding a mirror?  In case you need to very if someone has a reflection?  Cheesy

I used to grow vervain, I need to look that up, ChameleonHound! 

There is a mirror, but its kind of hard to see in the photo.  It's the oval framed thing sitting on the left side of the lid.  I used a shisha mirror, pressed into textured polymer clay.

I think miniatures with so much detail are awesome!  You thought of everything! The fanged skull is absolutely my favorite...

I know he will get a big kick out of showing his kit and every one in his office will feel so much safer... Cheesy
