I made this coffin for a gothic friend's birthday. I thought it would be a great idea to make a handmade coffin and then fill it with some spooky goth things.

I used a pattern of a coffin that I printed. I drew the pattern on a cardboard, I cut it and I built it up. When the coffin was ready I started to cover it with newspaper strips and white glue (mixed with water) to make it stronger. Finally I painted it. Then I glued the silk paper inside.

Now I want to make another one for me!
<p style="color: black;">Didn't think that a vampire would like a coffin with a Crucifix? ;P</p>
Hahaha wow! I never thought about this detail!!!! My god I'm a vampire killer!! Thanks for the observation... I think that my next coffin won't have a crucifix...
<p>you could do an upside down cross (the sign on the devil) vampires would like that </p>
<p>Yeah, this is a great idea! Sure they would prefer and upside down cross than a normal cross.... So silly, but I never thought about this detail... </p>
<p>not many people would, i am just a little OCD about details in art and i try to be helpfull</p>
<p>Well, that's great! You're really been helpful. Thank you very much. BTW, I am a little bit OCD too lol.</p>

<p>Thanks! It will be very useful. </p><p>I'm still surprised that I never realized that after seeing and reading plenty of vampire things! </p>
<p>Ahh, you're just too young, when you're 700..800 years, it'll come naturally ;P</p>
<p>LOL You're right! See you in 500 years maybe :p</p>
