I need some help!

I need some help!

I really need some help!
Her ..erm... leek thingy fell of her stomach part. (Because I'm a noob, and disgrace to the nerd community).
I tried super gluing the tips together, but they're so tiny and fragile that they just fall apart again when I attach the body part to the figure.
I was thinking trying to glue behind the part that fell up where it's the closest to the the body part, but first I'd like to hear if you guys have any ideas for me to try?

Thank you for reading this!


As you can see, she is not happy with me...


Blurry pic is blurry.

What about the second glue? Like this:

"К тому же, он безбожный садист. Один неверный шаг с твоей стороны, и он превратится в беспощадного убийцу. Извращенец, кусок дерьма и подонок в одном лице - вот кто он"

If you are going to super glue it its best to leave it for a while, maybe a couple hours or overnight just to be extra careful. I can't really recomend a brand because they might not be available in your country etc but try to use a clear glue not white ( it won't look too good when it is dry). I used a white glue to fix one of my mum's ornaments, it worked ok but is a bit of an eye-sore but it might be ok because the part on Miku is white but it's up to you~

I would try to be extra careful when using the figure next time, it might be hard (the same part almost broke off my miku too!)especially when posing and exchanging the parts etc.

Hope all goes well, sorry if this wasn't much help.

Might I suggest Gorilla Super glue? It is the stuff I use for repairing figures and stuff in general.

The glue bottle looks like this

They make super glue? I thought regular gorilla glue was supposed to be super glue. Is it somehow stronger then their regular glue?

It's a lot stronger than regular "crazy/super glue". Although the typical gorilla glue actually produces a stronger bond than the [super glue version] of it, but it takes a minimum of 10 hours+ to dry completely and it is more difficult to apply it without making a mess.

I found a store here in Iceland that sells this glue, and they also highly recommended it.
I bought it and it worked perfectly (though I have to careful when the put on the body part, since it partly goes under the torso), thank you so much! ^^



It's pretty obvious that I had to glue it back on, but I still think it's sort of "camouflaged" since she has these stripes on her outfit.

I second the suggestion of gorilla glue.
