This how-to guide will teach you step-by-step on how to make your own Galt style obedience collar, modeled after the one worn by Galt, the master thrall of Triskelion.
After much research, we determined a clever way to attach the triangles. The method allows their position to be adjusted, but also holds them firmly in place.
We also determined how to make a collar that appears to be metal, but is not. Best of all, the metallic color will not rub off on your costume.
Note: It assumes you know how to make molds which you will need to make for the triangle pieces. Making a mold is a separate topic and takes practice. It is not difficult and there are plenty of how-to videos online. All of the other steps are provided along with sources for the materials used in each step.
The Back Story
This collar is worn by Galt in the sixteenth episode (“The Gamesters of Triskelion”) of the second season of Star Trek™, a science fiction television series. When Kirk, Uhura, and Chekov find themselves in a gladiator arena on a strange planet, Galt informs that they are to be trained to participate in games to entertain his masters, the Providers. They are fitted with obedience collars that engage when they disobey the Master Thrall’s orders. The initial color for a “newcomer” is white and changes as they win the games against their competitors. Galt, the master thrall, has three colors – yellow, red and blue.
