Make Your Own Collar or Cuffs


I am so excited! On a Fetlife ad, I just found the coolest site! It's called The Collar Factory. And no, I am not getting paid anything to tell you about it. I just browsed through it and it looks awesome.

The Collar Factory lets you custom-design your own collars, handcuffs, or belts. You can choose your material, the color, the lining, the decorations, the size, you name it---with just an easy click. I went through the system, and with an idea this cool, I expected there to be a catch, like you have to register to use the site, or it's super expensive. But honestly, neither of those were true.

You don't have to register unless you actually want to buy the finished product, so you can play around on there all day without giving your personal info. I was impressed with how many choices there are for the collar. It was really simple to do; just click the photo you like best and it adds that feature to your customized collar. There are leathers and linings in many different colors, so you actually get way more choices than you will when you buy a collar or cuffs from a sex toy shop (which has very small selections) or a BDSM collar store (which usually offers only black or a few other colors, like red).
You can add many different studs to your collar, or different plastic gems, or nothing at all. You can pick the kind of buckle you want. There are even some super cute little skull-shaped studs.
I went through the process and created a basic black leather collar with blue gemstones and purple fuzzy lining. Because the whole thing is custom made to your specifications, I was expecting it to be ridiculously expensive, but for my black leather collar, the price was just $42 (I assume it would be more expensive if you chose purple leather or something more unusual). Honestly, that's about what you'll pay at sex toy shops that only offer unadorned collars in black leather. So if you're going to shell out the money for a collar, belt, or cuffs, you might as well use this cute little website to make your own exactly the way you want them! You'll get far more choices and a larger selection when you make your own with all your favorite colors and decorations, for the same price you can get a boring black one from anywhere else.
