We're familiar with the phrase "dead to the world" when describing someone who has had an exceptionally restful night's sleep. However, one young woman may have taken this expression quite literally, by actually sleeping like a dead person.
Woman Defends Sleeping In Coffin As She Can 'Hide Away' From All Her Problems
A self-proclaimed 'vampire' influencer, who is known as Sad Spice on social media, has escalated her passion for all things Dracula by choosing to sleep in a genuine coffin.
On TikTok, the influencer shared insights into her unique sleeping routines and discussed the various reasons behind her affection for her coffin.
"Yes, I keep a whole real coffin in my bedroom," she announced in a recent video, before explaining she purchased it from a place called 'Casket Builder Supply' and had to paint it and put it together herself.
"Ever since I was 14 I always wanted a coffin of my own so I could hide away from my problems," she explained, before revealing her parents told her she wasn't allowed to get a coffin bed "because that would be weird."
By embracing a vampire persona and cosplaying as Sad Spice on TikTok, she has attracted an impressive following of over 600,000 individuals.
So, while her actions might be considered unconventional, it's evident that a substantial number of people support and enjoy her content.
You might think that the 6-foot-8-inch casket is purely a decorative item, but that assumption would be incorrect. The influencer has taken it a step further by adding a 4-inch layer of memory foam inside the coffin, making it surprisingly comfortable for sleeping.
"No, I don’t close the lid, however, it is not airtight. It is safe," she added.
Besides creating a comfortable spot to lay one's head, there are additional advantages to having the coffin.
The influencer pointed out "it’s a great way of weeding out potentially bad dates, ’cause ain’t no one wanna hang out with someone who has a coffin in their room." Fair point.
She concluded the video by saying the coffin is "a great way to hide away from my problems," but not all her followers were convinced.
People in the comments section were divided as to their thoughts on the coffin bed, with many admitting they couldn't get their head around it.
"See this, a huuuuuuuge red flag and honestly more of a sign to run away instead of walk away," one wrote.
"This isn't normal, you got some trauma...this coming from a guy who's born in Communist Transylvania," another added, while a third called her a "weirdo".
"Uhm woman, are you okay?" someone else asked.
"Only asking cause you shouldn’t be really having a full on coffin in your bedroom."
"What..... the... f**k," another wondered.
But others were more into the idea, with one writing: "Okay so this has it confirmed. I'm attracted to red flags."
"That is actually really cool.. specially with your fangs," another added.
"So just a thought: you could find a way to mount a phone or iPad in the lid turning into a personal home theatre," a third suggested.
With the woman replying: "Oh my gosh wait that’s genius!! Totally gonna look into how I can do that!"
"Just a little reading/decompression nook. Perfection," someone else said.
As she responded: "YES!! It’s honestly so cosy for reading!"
"Girl you are literally living my dream, the fangs, the coffin bed," another wrote.
"I'm very happy for you."
And some people even came up with some practical uses for the coffin bed.
"Honestly I would love a memory foam padded box to hide in, especially if my migraines came back," one admitted.
"I would close the lid though!"
As another said: "Honestly this sounds lit for night shift workers.
