Just in Case

I’m really more of a let’s-all-love-our-vampires kind of gal, but as the boy scouts say, “be prepared”.  After all, vampires are creatures of the night, and you never know when they might get a little out of hand.  And even if your vampire friend is one of those sweet, sugary, I’d-rather-die-than-drink-from-a-human sort, their friends may not be. In that case, doesn’t it make sense to be ready?

And now, thanks to The Green Dragon you can do just that! Check it out:

(Isn’t that fun? I got that link from a forum on GoodReads and had to share! They have some other really cool items, like wands, skystones and tankards, but the vampire stakes were too cool!)

Of course, if you’re on a tight budget and handy with power tools, you could always make them yourself:

(read all the way to the end to see what they were really for – it’s pretty funny)

Now I’m not advocating vampire slaying, but I’m just saying, you never know. Better to be safe than sorry.

  1. Looks kinda cool, though I think I’d rather have a zombie defense than a vampire defense. 😀

    I can always make stakes out of my old hockey sticks. 😀

    I think I want to make my own stakes. This could be a great craft project for scouts, no?

    cute!! But I expect my Vampire to protect me 😛 And besides I plan on becoming a vampire too, so no need for stakes 😀

    I have a wooden Escrima stick in my trunk that split and would make a perfect vampire killing stake. We used the sticks in a Taekwondo demo a few months ago and I broke mine.

        You’re right…hmmm, someone needs to write a short story where he bites it and sparkles no more ha ha ha (oh how I love vampire puns)
