This is the hidden leaf village emblem...it looks like a bird head to me...but I have been assured by my teen and tween that it is in fact, a leaf.

I love the way the leather looks. Most Naruto knock-off headbands are metal and don't conform or fit comfortably to the head. 

This is the best way to make the perfect cosplay piece.
