Exclamation Attaching stabbing sword effect?

(i didnt see my first post go through, so im reposting)

Hello ^.^
So basically today I am coming to you with a problem I have been thinking about for awhile...

I have a sword handle of a katana (Ichigo Kurosakis sword) and i wish to have it showing it puncturing into me as follows (will go through layers of clothing as a hold im thinking so far).:

If so, can anybody direct me in a method of attaching it to myself? I've thought of resin but I am rather short on time and money, so cheapest things too if possible ^^

The handle itself is 32cm long and width is: bottom (4cm), hilt (7.5cm) and spiky top (5.2cm long, 1.5cm wide). Or as seen in reference pics below:

might be able to find something on a "stage prop" site for theater, just cause
that kinda stuff is thier forte

but i would imagine it having a custom molded piece (to mount hilt to), with straps that go under the shoulder and around the chest...like an under arm gun holster
