Question Odin's Eye Patch Helppp!

Ok so me and my Dad next year, are going to cosplay Odin and Loki (I'm Female).

I'm taking on a chill, more civilian kind of design/cosplay style, each having capes and pretty much colour matching, we'll have staffs/sceptres/spears or whatever you may wish to call them but I'm struggling on something.

Odin's Eye Patch!

I have no clue how to create an eyepatch that will stay on the face for 3 days at a convention, no straps, nothing!

Any ideas??? Money/Crafting is not an issue. I'd just like to get a basis on how to do it, ready for next year as we didn't plan this one out!

Spirit gum is adhesive for skin. TEST BEFORE THE CON!! and do so on some other part of the body before getting near an eye. Some people are allergic to spirit gum, it's removing agent and other make up appliance materials (latex is in a lot of them).

He will not want to wear it for three days, you need to remove it each night, (or better yet make three eye patches so it doesn't matter how badly they come off) but even then I'd bet a donut he will get sick of wearing it before that. I'd make one with a clear elastic strap as a back up so it's easily wearable and removable.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.
