I never glue a removable accessory in place. I'll cut thin strips of electrical tape, clean off the adhesive with Goo Gone, then superglue the strips in place to tighten the fit of loose pieces. I've done this with holsters and helmets. If the helmets really loose, I'll use small bits cut from old T-shirts, and glue them in with fabric mending glue.
This should also work to keep Viper goggles on, but I've found that just pushing them down a little bit works fine.
Both of my Cobra Trooper helmets fit just fine, but my officer's helmet did not. Fixed that by sculpting hair on his head.

Viper goggles of course but the main piece that was a pain that needed glue was Airbornes backpack that kept coming off him.

Only did it on the Battle Armor CC's helmet hose.
He was my favorite when I got him as a kid, so it was heartbreaking losing the hose and having him look like he was whistling like an idiot.
Wasn't going to let that happen again!

when i customize i use glue foe a good bit of stuff but if i can hide sticky tack i will use that first. i guess the only reason for that is because i might endup changing my mind about something and don't want to lose more flesh than necessary removing stuff,lol !

I used glue on a couple of WWII-style customs to keep accessories i want on permanently.

I use the clear bands that they come with for weapons and accessories. as far as helmets and such I take my chances. I either pose them holding the helmet or with the helmet on their stand if the helmet is too loose.

I've thought about gluing the Viper goggles down, but was worried it might dissolve the plastic. Sounds like it's been successful for others, so I may give it a try (as well as the crappy leg joints on the Snow Serpent legs).
