How do I make a cool Halloween effect, where it looks like wires or electrical cords are coming out of my skin?

I'm working on a costume that makes me look like I'm a robot that detached itself from a wall of wires or electrical cords. What materials could I use to attach these items to bare skin (primarily my back)? Any tips? I've scouring the internet for some advice but I've come up empty handed.

Theatrical spirit glue and coloured cord or thread or even real wire.

because the hard part will be the 'join' between the wire and skin, it might be best looking to have the wires terminate in a second skin - made of something that looks like your skin, latex foam rubber, etc. that way they can jab through without killing you.

That's very smart! I think I will do that, possibly using latex foam rubber.
