Design Challenge : True Blood Season 4 premiere

To honor the True Blood season 4 premiere  we have our new and third design challenge, needless to say that we adore the series, and after almost a year waiting  (waiting SUCKS !) for the 4th season premiere we cannot wait to see the exciting new adventures of our beloved  Sooki Stackhouse, Bill and of course the wonderful Eric ;D

For those addicted to hot vampires, happiness and excitement come together in True Blood season 4,  just released. We have to admit that the synthetic blood idea has its pros and cons, it was the reason that let vampires say  “hey! We exist!! and we don´t need to suck your blood out because we have this tasty beverage”  …yes, sure.

If you are a sincere True Blood fan you know it is not completely true, they enjoy drinking from your hot veins even more. Blame the bottle!!! That way I designed a new one, a bottle more suitable for vampires, big, strong, tough

No need to open the bottle you can stick your fangs in it !

Eric Northman: if you are not in the mood for a True Blood , dinner will be waiting for you tonight all blushed. XOXO Criss

I, on the other hand thought about all those last minute hookups between humans and vampires. What happens the day after ? Your bedroom has not been designed to be totally sealed during daylight. Don´t worry, I came up with a perfect and stylish solution : disposable curtains.  You can cut them  in to the exact size of your window and install them in just a few seconds, just roll out the fabric and stick it to the frame of your window.

Comes in standard sizes : 2.44 x 1.22 , 3.66 x 1.22, 3.66 x 2.44

No need to worry about the sunrise now huh!

Hope you enjoyed this week challenge, see you next Monday  with the News of The World Scandal.
