Tomorrow I have a presentation stand in a busy university.
I want to take a model with me to grab attention.
The model will be covered in false rose petals, but how do I get the rose petals to stick without any embarrasing exposures?
Double sided phototape?  Tit-tape?  or is there a better idea?

superglue, and a BIG apology to the model afterwards lol
on a slightly more serious note, use something like warmlite wallpaper adhesive, will dry out and stick well, but is washable afterwards
double sided tape etc, no matter how well applied will
a) always look naff
b) come away at THE most inopurtune moment

Best of luck

LOL! Now thats a bit harsh, you could at least tame it down to a staple gun

Small dabs of PVA Glue will work just as well and is very very cheap, It can be dried quickly with a hair dryer or in a warm room and peels off completely after.

Toupee Tape is what you need. Same stuff as Burlesque dancers use to hold the nipple tassles in place.

I would suggest mastik as did John, it's safe to use on skin and will make sure the rose petals stick. I am not sure you should be using things like wallpaper paste and pva glue these are not designed for use on skin! It would take an awful lot of eyelash glue to cover a body in rose petals!!

spirit gum, its less harsh on the skin than anything else, you could also use clear liquid latex.
