So I've put down cosplay work for a couple weeks to take a break, and there is a question I have been pondering. I cannot figure out a good method of connecting the two halves of my chestplate/torso. My original idea was to attach backpack clips to each side, but the problem I am encountering is that these backpack clips refuse to stick to the chestplate. I tried both hot glue and contact cement, but neither seems to want to work. So do any of you have any advice in this manner? Advice of how to get these clips to stick is preferable, but if you have an alternate method of joining these two halves then I am also happy for the advice.
