Spike help

I am trying to find spikes to attach to the shoulder pads of a Legion of Doom costume. Do you have any suggestions other than just Styrofoam Cones?

Are they already a finished piece? Like you didn't just take paint and just paint the foam right? You went through the steps to make them smoother, have a coat of sealer of some kind over it before painting? If you did you can pretty much use any strong glue..I'd use gorilla glue since it basically bonds anything to anything almost..also you may need to make sure the flat bottom is curved enough to fit the shape of the pads if not already. then just glue.They should be light enough to stay no problem. Just be careful not to bump them against stuff.

I have the tights and the shoulder pads. I am looking to for somewhere to get the spikes to put on the shoulder pads. I can't not seem to find spikes or cones longer than 2-3/4"

You could make hollow spikes out of craft foam, and then coat them in mod podge or something similar to seal and strengthen them. Then just glue them to the shoulder pads. Also, Hobby Lobby sells paper mache trees this time of year (brown card-stock looking cones). You could cut the base off, then paint and glue those as well. Other craft stores may sell comparable craft tree bases too.
