Exclamation Body Glue- How to get fabric to stick to your body?

Body Glue- How to get fabric to stick to your body?
Hallo everyone How are all of you?
I was wondering...um what kinf of glue should I use to glue fabric to my skin?
I know there is a type of glue othere cause the celbs use it all the time on thier outfit/gowns/costumes.
Last year on E! they had said what it was called. But Iv forgotten what it was called.
I use to just use this roll on glue. but I live in texas USA & the heat was melting the glue. ;_;V
If any one knows what the glue is called? Or if anyone has any ideas on how to glue/attach fabric to skin, with out useing flesh colored fabric. I am all ears.
Thank you ever so much for have taken the time to read this.
Please do take care
Happy cosplay.

I know there's "sock glue" for the loose socks the school girls wear. You can find that on eBay.
Then there's this red double stick tape. I think it's the toupee tape Menchi mentioned. It's used for clothes, crafts and wigs. http://www.mhrw.com/fashion_tape.html

I used spirit gum to keep my I-no top in place, and I didn't have any problems with it going anywhere. Otherwise I usually use double-sided mounting tape (the foamy kind you can get at Walgreen's), but that can lose its stick after a while and will need to be replaced.

Double sided carpet tape works well enough for me.

Comes in very wide widths and in HUGE rolls at the hardware store.

As an Irish dancer, I really need to keep my socks up, and I swear by my sock glue. Check out any Irish dancing supply store for some good body adhesive.
(Try Antonio Pacelli, Rutherford Shoes, or anything else you can find on Google)

I found some Japanese/Korean uberly strong glue for any purpose at one of my fav. oragami stores. They are selling it for like 2-4 dollars a bottle.

Edit: The bottles are more like really oddly shaped glue sticks that have little rollers on it to evenly distribute the glue.

..Ow, ow, ow. I had to use that with a prom dress during high school to keep my bra on, as it was a backless dress. I thought I'd die. >.<

So use double sided carpet tape if you don't have sensitive skin.

They sell a "fashion tape", in fact my roommate has a roll of it... *sneaks over to dig for it*

Bleah, can't find it. Anyways, it's a tape used exclusively for clothing (labeled as such). It's on a thin-width roll and comes in a little box. Maybe try checking beauty supply stores or something, they might have it.

Hopefully this will help. http://liquidlatexonline.chainreacti...x.php?cPath=27

Usually I keep a 2 oz bottle of liquid latex to adhere socks to my legs or the stick clothing to my cleavage (don't want to show off all my goodies).
