How to attach a cape for shirtless Thor?

Greetings all,

I'm in the process of creating a shirtless Thor costume and have run into some difficulty. I've crafted the cape out of fabric, some 1" thick foam and some metal and curved wood to give it a flare shape over my shoulders. My issue is I can't seem to figure out how to make it stay on my shoulders without adding a tie to the front or looping through the arm pits, both of which I'm trying to avoid. Any ideas on how to get it to hold? I'm going for the look in the attached photo. https://www.google.com/search?q=shir...8XSr4lc0TXM%3AThanks!!

Not sure if it'll have enough strength to support all that weight, but maybe a prosthetic adhesive, along the lines of Spirit Gum or ProsAid under the discs?
