Sewing things to lycra

An upcoming project I'm planning for involves the use of a bodysuit, which probably means stretch material like lycra. On top of that, there needs to be layers of solid objects (like beads, foam, feathers...)... which are arranged in patterns.

So question! How do I get all those objects to stick onto the lycra? Sewing is probably the sturdiest method, but seeing as how I need the bodysuit to stretch into the shape of my body before attaching by wearing it, I don't fancy trying to poke a needle and thread through the lycra while my skin is below.

Would any kind of glue work at all? My limited experience with lycra so far tells me what the usual fabric glues and stuff are just ignored by the lycra. And what glue would be forgiving enough to flex with the fabric?

Thanks in advance!
