Do you use an alternative to collars?

novanilla novanilla
My partner and I are both interested in the idea of collars, and think they would be a good addition to our bdsm. Previously, we've never done any sort of collaring, nor have we with other people. It never appealed to me before now. Yesterday, my partner told me about a bandana fetish, and wants to "collar" me with a bandana tied to my thigh before sex. I was really excited about this, and think it's a great way for us to practice the idea of collaring but not use a collar, since neither of us are really that into collars at this point. We also only want to use it during play, especially since wearing a bandana on my thigh wouldn't really work for everyday use the way a collar could look like a choker necklace. For those of you who have (a) steady partner(s) with whom you play frequently, do you use an alternative, or just a collar, or nothing like this in your bdsm?

We use one collar each time we play.
We use one collar, but not every time we play.
The sub in my relationship is collared all the time or most of the time, not just during sex.
We have multiple collars that we use during play.

We use an alternative to a collar, only have one, and the sub wears it only during play.
We use an alternative to a collar, only have one, and the sub always wears it.
We use multiple alternatives to a collar that we use during play.
Even if we use multiple collars/alternatives we have a favorite we use most of the time.
We picked our collar or alternative out together.
Sub picked our collar or alternative.
Dom picked our collar or alternative.
We do not use anything like a collar at all in our bdsm play.

We buy tons of different collars just to be used when we are playing. I am not usually a jewelry person so wearing a collar or anything all day everyday would bother me.

I use my dog's old collar for now, because I have not found an affordable cool one yet.

Sometimes I feel bad, like I am appropriating something from the BDSM/ kink community because I use collars just because I think they're hot, not because they have any symbolic meaning for me.

I currently have no partner/ no one to collar me, and I can't imagine wanting anyone to collar me in the future. I do not plan on having a collaring ceremony, or anything like that.

I own a simple leather band with the word Mine on it and a leather collar with a d-ring for my pets to wear
