Its never too early to ponder the inevitability of death, amiright?
And when you do wave goodbye to this earthly realm, youll want to do it in style.
Im after a great makeup artist and stylist wholl make me look the best I ever have when Im dead. I want people to say wow, she looks really good considering shes dead at my funeral rather than all that she will be sorely missed nonsense.
Enter the final stage in arranging the most gloriously extra funeral you can: A glitter covered coffin.
Luxury sparkle coffins and caskets are now available to buy from most funeral directors across the UK, using the same type of glitter used on Jimmy Choo shoes. Fancy.
Theyre the creation of husband and wife team Chris and Dawn Nicholls, who set up The Glitter Coffin Company last year to expand their existing work producing glitter covered furniture.
I decided one day to do something different, weve had The Glitter Furniture Company for two years and I wanted to progress, said Chris.
So I decided I would buy a coffin and cover it in glitter to see what it would look like.
My wife was surprised to find me googling a coffin on our family eBay account after I had the idea.
I then spoke to John at the Wyatt Brothers funeral directors. Working closely with them, we had one made up and it just spoke for itself – when I brought it out of the van, the sun was shining and it just dazzled.
This was about a year ago but weve only just started to promote the business now as we had to wait for the coffins to pass the FFMA coffin testing requirements for them to be able to be used for cremation and burials.
Weve passed that and so now were sending examples to funeral directors across the country.
Since January the company has supplied 15 coffins to people who have passed away. FE Harris makes the coffin, then The Glitter Coffin Company deliver or ship the casket anywhere in the world.
The glitter-covered coffins are available in a variety of colours including silver, gold, pink, blue, black, and purple. So consider your colour theme before putting in an advance order.
Each coffin is made to order, so you can always ask for a custom sparkly design. Lovely.
