Help with the suspenders on Ukraine cosplay?

I lack the talent to create my own cosplay, so I ordered one online. Well it is lovely, but the suspenders will NOT stay up. They are the little sliding suspenders and I may be putting them on wrong. Any advice or suggestions? I am attending kamicon so I only have until Friday of this week!

If the suspenders keep falling down, then you could get double sided tape. This is a quick and temporary fix that might not last an entire convention(depending on the adhesive) without replacing the tape from time to time. Just tighten the straps to run up your torso, and then put the tape on the part where the inside of the straps touch the fabric on the shoulders.

Oh thanks for the suggestion! I will try that out!
The only problem is that when I move around or raise my arms they loosen and sink. I really hope the tape works!

Suspenders are not meant for busty girls, I think Ukraine has some sort of witchcraft that keeps her suspenders straight but doesn't stop the bounce. Try safety pins from the back.
