A Jabot is an ornamental frill or ruffle on the front of a shirt or blouse, typically made of lace. While it might have started out as a formal wear accessory in the late renaissance era and Victorian noble garment, it has sense morphed into the ideal things for a truly elegant vampire costume. That’s probably why you see so many Nosferatu costumes festooned in a Vampire Jabot with cross like this one.
If you ask an experienced cosplayer or costume designer, they will tell you that the right accessories bring your costume to the next level. This is especially true for people who want to portray an elder vampire with fashion sense that harkens back to an earlier time. If this sounds like your next vampire costume, then this Vampire Jabot with cross might just be the perfect fit. It looks like it’s made from real lace and silk, though it’s actually made from much more affordable and durable polyester-based fabrics.
