Nosferatu Curtains: If Drapes Could Kill
February 25th, 2014
They say that a person’s eyes are the windows to his or her soul. But what about the windows to your home? They’re literally windows to your life, but could they also be windows to your psyche? That could be the case for those who have fancily-decorated blinds and drapes, like the ASCII curtains and 35mm film curtains.
Hopefully, that won’t be the case for the folks who have these Nosferatu curtains hanging on their windows, though.
Most people associate “nosferatu” with vampires, but did you know that it was derived from the Greek word “nosophoros,” which means “plague carrier”? People in the olden times associated vampires as being carriers of diseases, which explains why both are used interchangeably when referring to one or the other.
These hand-painted curtains incite fear and they’ll most likely scare off potential burglars from entering through windows that’s shadowed by this menacing figure. If you don’t want to go the Nosferatu route (which is most likely too creepy for many people’s tastes), then you can always get the stealthy Ninja curtain for the same deterrent effect and geeky vibe ala Ninja Assassin.
These curtains are handmade and are made from soft 100% polyester fabric, so they’ll flow every which way when a cool breeze blows by. They can also be used as shower curtains, as headboard decor behind your bed, and as wall art wherever you feel like it.
For example, this Superman curtain would be awesome for a kid’s bedroom (bathroom, or window, too), don’t you think? If these designs aren’t up your alley, then you could always go the DIY route (ala the 35mm film curtains) or get some custom window blinds made especially for you. Customization would be ideal if know what you want to end up with, but just don’t have the time to make it yourself or shop around for it.
