Avengers Loki help

So I'm supposed to work on a Loki cosplay soon. One problem. I have no idea how the silver thingies, looking like those on zippers, are called which go all the way along his jacket? Vest? Unfortunately, Google gave no satisfying answers to the keywords "silver thingies". Would anybody help me? Please?

(Those. Those right there.)
Also, do they stay on the fabric, or do they require gluing? And if so, with what so it won't show much?

giant picture is giant!
Honestly they look to me like zipper teeth, very carefully added for strictly decorative purpose.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.
My Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/penlowe I make non-fitted custom things to ship within the continental US. I only do fitted garments for those whom I can meet in person.

Some people used zipper teeth. I heard of others adding zipper stops for the trim.

Another idea I stumbled upon is using those prong fasteners as the trim.

I'm not sure on what the best way is to go by attaching them though. Maybe first cutting them to size then using pliers and super glue. I'm thinking about doing a Loki Cosplay as well.

To me, they look like the metal studs you see on biker jackets/punk outfits.


Maybe just attach them close together?

They're actually brass colored, not silver. They also look a whole lot like crimp beads or ribbon crimps. Like these;
