Toon Zelda - Shawl/Armour Help

Hi everyone! I'm working on my Spirit!Zelda cosplay and I've run into a bit of a puzzle. I'm trying to figure out how to attach her shawl to the armour piece at the top of her bodice. I'd really rather not safety pin it, but I can't think of anything else at the moment. Glue may or may not work but I'm trying to ban myself from the stuff until absolutely necessary.

So far I know my shawl will be casa collection satin and the armour will be two layers of thicker craft/fun foam.

Here's a ref pic: http://www.zeldadungeon.net/Zelda13/...ssZeldaArt.png
(I am doing her ghost version, but the best ref pic for her armour is this version)

Thanks in advance for any help of tips!

You could always use snaps or velcro. Just sew one side to the fabric and glue/whatever the other side to the armor. So you can take the shawl on and off.

To me it looks like the armor is connected to the shall. So maybe put a snap on the ends of the armor and on the shall part. I would also suggest a piece of Velcro on the back of the armor connected to the bodice so that it will hold in the right place.

You could use snaps, velcro, hook-and-eye set, or even small buckle clips.

If you use snaps, get the ones that you hammer in. Attach one to a separate piece of craft foam and then glue that to the back of your armour plate, instead of trying to glue the snap directly to the back. The snap on your fabric, make sure it's a double layer of fabric (as in, reinforce the fabric your snap is going on) or else it may well rip the fabric.
