How to attach a head piece?

Help please! T_T

Iíve made my Neliel (Bleach) mask and it fits my head great! The problem is that it doesnít stay on; it slides off when I make the slightest move. Any suggestions on how to make this bad boy stay on my head?

Make sure you have a lot of redundancy when securing it. Don't just secure it once and assume it will stay; secure it in more than one way.

Some ways you can secure it, that I can think of, is:
1.Getting some of those clear straps (usually for bras and such) and attach one to the sides of the mask and loop it under your chin like you would a bike helmet (you can pull some of the wig in front to that it would look natural.
2.Gluing A LOT of bobby pins or hair clips to the bottom of the mask and clipping it to the wig.
3.Getting some strong magnets and gluing one magnet to the bottom of the mask and glue the other one on your wig cap. (You may want to use multiple magnets)
4.Super glue it to the wig itself. (Ok, that was a joke, but still you can do it...although I would not recommend it.)

Super glue some loops of wire or ribbon to the back side of the mask. Then you can use bobby pins, hair combs, elastics, whatever to attach it to the wig.
