Just you wait till Celine catches wind of this.....I think she can help you with ideas...
However, having said that let me direct you to Amethyst Angel's helpful guide to non fibreglass armour ^_^

Dude!! I made my Shana (from Dragoon) and that is what I used exactly!! (Cardboard and Vinyl) and when I make my Yuffie costume, I'm gonna use silver instead. (And Shower Curtains are REALLY cheap ^^).

I recommend Amethyst Angel's guide. I haven't tried it, but I'm sure going to when I make armor in the next month. XD

Metalwork isn't all too hard if you have the right tools. Its just time consuming. Get thin sheet aluminum or something. I have also heard of workings in fiberglass and some special sheet plastic stuff, but I am unfamiliar in those areas.
