Mentioned it in the previous Desk Diary when we moved office but wasn't too keen on the curtains - so I went and made my own ^^;

For a wee bit, we were using Yuzusoft tapestries as curtains ^^

I considered line drapes and roll blinds but then took inspiration from the Yuzusoft tapestries and made some long Mirai Millennium tapestries instead. The art work is done by Kazunori Iwakura who is also responsible for titles like Railgun, Toradora, Sky Girls, Kimikiss, Daphne in the Brilliant Blue, Shakugan no Shana, Hidan no Aria and more.

Lately I've been doing a lot of my printing at a company in Asakusa called Pop Box who can practically print and make anything - they even done the work on our new Mirai Itasha Ver 2. If you want something done - just contact them through their site and tell them that Danny sent you for a discount ^^

Data of the artwork is prepared by myself - I measure how big I want each side to be and make a canvas of the same size in Photoshop. I then resize up the artwork to fill up the space. The artwork may look blurry on screen but looks fine when printed on cloth.

I left the previous curtain rails where they were so that I could roll up each side of the curtain.

And this is what it looks like during the day. Was considering making the background white but it turned out just fine the way it is.

Need to stand on a chair to roll up the curtain but takes only a few seconds.

This is the hook that I used - the instructions should be self explanatory but you dont need anything else to attach this to the ceiling and will hold up to 2kgs. You can get a pack of 5 from Amazon for only 380 yen.

All I need to do now is to cut the string of the tapestries short and hang them up like so - done! If you got long tapestries then you may want to use this idea for your windows.

Would you consider using anime/2D style tapestries for your windows?
