You can make the shoulder pieces out of craft foam and back them with styrene (white plastic sheeting). Make sure to use a low temperature hot glue gun to mount the pieces together; this ensures that none of the material(s) will warp when exposed to heat. You can improvise as much as you want for his shoulder piece since it's relatively simple and that it's flat in overall shape. You can even go so far as to make the armor out of entirely plastic using plastic buckets or some sort of tupperware; cutting out each piece, drilling out holes and lacing them together using shoe lace and paint the pieces to whatever color/texture/design. As for the fan, you can either buy a blank white Japanese fan and paint it yourself, or you can buy an already made Volcanoid fan via a cosplay website. Or if you feel that you want to make one yourself, you can refer to "how to make japanese fans";
I Hope this helps and good luck,
