If I made one, I would probably use sheet metal or possibly metallic tape.

I used blue cloth and thin sheet metal. Then I scratched out the design with this engraver thing that I accidently stole from my art class.

Well, I bought mine from somebody, but it seems to be a pieces of metal screwed onto the cloth headband, with the logo done with paint/stencil.

Just be careful after you make it.. Mine rusted ToT

Yup sheet metal and cloth, i just used this paint thats used for painting metal and as for the little screws on the corners, i stamped those out with my badass heavy duty paperhole puncher!!! and painted a line across like it was a screw.

I suggest after you cut and design the the sheet metal, to spray it with a clear spray paint.

i read on the ax boards that you place the metal over the fabric, get rivets and hammer them in. i guess you should use a thick layer of fabric or something.

Well, how exactly do you dull the edges of the sheet metal? My friend made our Battle Royale collars out of metal flashing but he edges were rough but still sharp. @_@

As long as you use a sturdy fabric or at least reinforce the inside of the headband with a heavy-duty fabric, the rivets shouldn't weigh down & rip anything.

You could use a strip of electrical tape of the same color of the collar placed *just* over the sharp part.It may look a little weird perhaps,but i think that that's certainly better than accidently slicing your own jugular open ~_~
