But I don’t wanna be a pirate!!!!
Perfect at the Crab Shack!
Holy shit, I had no idea The Grinch was a true story about a real person.
I had no idea that meth would make my lacy collars bigger! Very excited to learn this.
“1940s Lace Elizabethan Collar” on an 1840s Victorian model.
Some people really know how to push it with their descriptions. “This suits all styles.”
I suggest we test that statement.
Who knew that Keith Richards was into modeling these days? He looks good in lace.
Is that a photo of one of the Salem witches?
I think the trick is not to wear them too tight…
This was all the rage with 60s rock stars.
Don’t try to choke me with a doily and tell me I’m chief justice, smart guy.
She could have at least smiled. Oh wait she is smiling.
She needs to be standing next to her farmer husband holding a pitchfork.
At their meth farm.
@Bratfink-More like the Witchfinder General than witch.
I would rather see a dozen unicorn pasties and sexy Kiss costumes than this dour mug shot.
15 July, 1940 – Victorian (?) England
The Plague has leveled my town and I shan’t go on much longer. I have lost thus far Tom, Mary, John, and Tobias to the Black Death and I fear that I am not far behind. With the Germans bombing London, I feel as though I am lost in time.
The collar looks like a christmas tree skirt.
It looks like she should be standing next to a pile of fire wood in Salem!!!
I want to hire this lady to stand in the back row of all my future family photos.
The seller tried to reuse an image from an old picture. Not a good idea:
You know, I could use this…
My dog has been chewing at his stitches a lot lately. That may be why the model has such a look of disdain, she can’t chew at her stitches.

I’m not usually an advocate for Botox, but there are certain situations that just SCREAM for a little poison in the face.
Now I want to buy this collar, just so I can drape around someone who’s being relentlessly perky before I’ve had my morning caffeine.
Miss Havisham could never figure out why there was no response to her ‘woman seeking man’ ad……………
I am YOU.
I am not A WITCH.
I am Christine O’Donnell and I approve this message
#16, now I want to read the rest of that book you’ve clearly started, darn it. LOL
As a costumer, this made me scream. First, 1940s is neither Elizabethan NOR Victorian. Steampunk *can* exist in all three eras, sort of, though Victorian is most traditional. The style of the collar makes me think of the Pilgrims, except, of course, that they never would have worn lace (though certain fahionable groups in Britain would have at the same time…but I’m pretty sure they were lace-trimmed rather than overlays like this). Maybe the model looks so depressed because someone just pointed all of these problems out to her?
Grand Ma-ma got her hairs cut!
(think Addams Family)
Awww, Hester Prim, why so grim?
I’ve always felt there was a market for a magazine called “Dour Pleasures” … all we need to do now is get that woman to remove everything but the lace collar and we’re in business.
Before my kids were born and our beloved dog was our first born, I had a canvas done of our dog’s head with a formal Puritan dress and human hands.
This is reminds me of it, but with Bob Dylan instead of my dog. I like my dog portrait better.
True American Gothic.
The picture hit you the exact same way it hit ME!!!
1490′s? Possibly. But they were more horizontal, or inverted from the way this is currently being worn.
Queen Lizzy 1st called, she wants her ruffle and her century back…
Well she does look like she’s about to have her cousin’s head chopped
@Buzzkill – I agree, this does not say “ruff” to me. And this comes from someone who actually has tried to shop Etsy for a serious, starched, giant ruff that would put Shakespeare to shame.
As I recall the book, no one admitted being with Hester Prynne. If this were the Demi Moore version, EVERYONE would have stepped up to say “Yeah! I was the one who did lay with that fine wench.” However, this image better fits the “I shall not admit to sleeping with thee” concept.
I wouldst not tappeth that.
“We are not assumed. Off with the head.”
Why does someone who can’t possibly be Amish look so Amish?
“no no No!
why in god’s name would I have said SNARL for the camera? nobody ever says that. Let’s try again, this time try to look a little happier. Remember, it’s a red letter day, after all. one…
…that’ll have to do.
Here we see a rare portrait of Ruth van Rijn. Oddly History is largely silent about her. all we know is she remained a spinster and her famous brother refused to paint her portrait saying once that: “Hers is the face that launched a thousand clocks”.
…they were never very close

#41 ha ha FTW!!!
#30, I gave your comment a thumbs-up, but I kind of hate you for making me imagine that. *shudders*
As a veteran Rennie, I have only this to say –
(Runs for the nearest costume shop to steep herself in actual period clothes)
“I am smiling. Go ahead and take the picture.”
“They don’t keep me around because I’m Beautiful. They keep me around because I’m SMART!”
#37, I was tasked to MAKE a ruff to put Shakespeare to shame, and then I convinced the director to go “Italian Renaissance” for the play, instead of “Elizabethan” and I was actually able to FINISH the costumes in time for the performance.
I have some lovely patterns from a book, and I would probably just be getting done with one, right about now, 2 years later.
This gives new meaning to Aresenic and old lace.
Sorry. Misspelled Arsenic! It’s the meth. . .
I’m feeling generous today- hell, I’ll give her the ten bucks , just to see her smile.
She looks like a pilgrim. (Who was seasick coming over on the Mayflower)
It looks like a lamp shade, seller! A Lampshade! And the fact that you jammed it over that woman’s head is clearly meeting with some disapprobation on her part!
They just had to go and bring steampunk into it.
@Bills-once again, I am in awe of you. And desperately want to forget the visuals your post brought to mind.
I do like how she believes this will suit a wide range of styles, from steampunk victorian, to 60′s rock star, to urban professional. Now if we could just get if off of the 60′s ‘rock star’, the others could try it on.
Okay, I’m going to be tonight’s buzz kill.
This isn’t very nice. Is the photo awful? Yes. Does the model look miserable? Yes.
But calling her a meth-head?
I didn’t call her a meth head. I called Judge Judy a meth head. – HK
I really like her hair, but south of that…she should cheer up. If she can afford lace in the Victorian era, she has something to smile about. I can’t imagine that it would have been cheap.
Well, of course Judge Judy is a meth head.
I want one of these, but three times the size, for when I have to eat spaghetti (or tacos) while wearing a nice, light-colored blouse. Let’s bring back the BIB as a fashion statement!
Ok, is it just me, or is it on backwards? (looking at the judge and comparing)…
#66, that’s what happens when you’re on meth.
That collar’s only for really special meth occasions. You put that collar on to let everybody know you are really ready for a good time.
I wonder which style of the suggested four does the seller represent on the photo?
my first bet is
1. 60th rock star
or wait, it could be a professional…
lady collar what a thrill …. they look soooooooo happy to model it ..
