Pull on foam latex injury

Is there a way to make a pull on sleeve that you can attach a foam latex appliance too ?  Looking to find an easy way to speed up application time to a haunted house actor that has a torn up bicep. To save time and budget I would plylike to apply the foam latex piece to something to put onto his arm in scene. Anyone know what material I can use and how to do it ?

    I've never tried anything like that, but I'm sure something is possible.  Though the appliance will likely not blend seamlessly into fabric, and the fabric edges would need to be hidden on the performer or they too will be visible.

    Foam latex is also not super durable, so it will eventually break down or get damaged.  If you are looking to create something for longer term use you may want to look into silicone appliances.

    As for what type of material your sleeve could be made out of, something with stretch like a spandex would likely be your best bet.
