keeping Princess Zelda pauldrons on

Hey so I'm cosplaying Princess Zelda from twilight princess, and I've made my pauldrons out of craft foam, but am not sure how to keep them attached to my shoulders.

I was thinking maybe using velcro on the straps of my dress, holding the pauldrons in place in between my shoulders and collar bone? I'm just not sure if my dress strap would be continuously falling down my shoulder.

Any other suggestions as to how to keep these things on?

Luckily craft foam is pretty light, but yes, any more support you can give to your shoulders, the better. If the pauldrons can sit flatly on your shoulders, velcro may very well work, since that'll just hold it in the same place on the dress. If your dress is well supported and not slippery at the shoulders, that'll help.

I used a series of D rings with a connector for my pauldrons for Link, but those were mounted to a hard breastplate, and also have a tendency to shift around some. The less give on the paudrons from the dress, the better.

I had chains to connect mine, and also used Velcro. But under the pauldrons I used blocks of foam kind of in an inverted V shape (but slightly rounded) to help them sit on my shoulders better. They still did slip down a bit though, I guess they do unless they're firmly attached. The only other way I could think of is to have some kind of large hook/eye or a button/loop type arrangement
