Hey all. I've been making a Batsuit for the past few months now, and I'm at the point where I need to attach the bat symbol. The main suit is made of spandex, so I'm hesitant to just jump in with attaching the symbol. What'd be the best way to attach the fabric symbol to the spandex?

I've attached a lot of soles to Spider suits which I'd assume is a pretty comparable beast.
One way is to use E3000 and leave it on for hours while is drys. I've had good success with contact cement (Barge is a favourite amongst many).

It'll be best with two people. You wear while they apply. Do a test run of where you want your logo, outline with a dry erase marker, then paint the logo and your suit (in the lines) with cement, then apply as the instructions direct, usually when you can touch a piece of paper to them and they don't stick. You've only got one shot at it though so take your time.
