for my alien suit i actually hand sewed on the latex pieces to the lycra suit, gives a much stronger bond and can only be broken be stretching it very hard.

i'd also try some good super glue, i've used it to do a few quick repairs before and there holding on very well, try on a test piece first though

Ernie, wrap a life form or mannequin in plastic wrap. Place the Lycra suit on it. Use barge cement on both the latex piece and on the suit. Let it get tacky for a minute or two, then apply it to the suit. I can't stress enough against super glue for this type of job. It will harden and eventually crack. It is not meant for bonding flexible to flexible materials

I've never heard of "barge cement", I've used contact cement for simular projects and its worked great,holds strong and stays flexible .maybe barge cement and contact are pretty close to the same thing?
