About Neck Ruffs
When Queen Elizabeth I first made neck ruffs popular, she had no idea the kind of fad she was starting. Today, these bits of fabric can be simple and relatively small or they can be as large as 1 foot in diameter. Everyday fashion does not tend to embrace the ruff, but costumes for a variety of purposes certainly do. Whether you are a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism or you simply love to dress up in period clothing, Elizabethan collars help to sell the look. Some Steampunk characters even wear ruffs as part of their costume, and while you can fold your own following instructions painstakingly, it is a better idea to find one already folded for you. This saves you time and energy that can be better spent on the rest of your costume. With the vast inventory on eBay, you can find neck ruffs to recreate any look, from any time period, show, or novel. Once you attach that collar, you are going to be amazed at how accurate your costume appears.
