Making and keeping headpieces up?

For Otakon this year, I want to cosplay Kougyoku Ren from Magi: http://moe.animecharactersdatabase.c...-759905295.jpg
However, I'm having a huge problem with her headpiece. I read somewhere that you could place a magnet underneath your wig and one in your headpiece to keep it up but I'm not sure if that would work. I'm not even sure what I should make it out of D: Any advice would be super appreciated!

Will you be wearing a wig? if so, use wire when styling it to create a substantial base for the hair decor. Run the wires through the wig cap and up through the hair style and domahickeys in the hair to make it all stay put.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.

I also use headbands in my headpieces I place the headband underneath the wig and then glue the headband to the wig. It also keeps the wig on really well
