I intend to cosplay Samus Aran from Metroid. If you're unfamiliar, here's a picture:

How do I go about constructing her suit? What materials and techniques should I be making use of?
I plan to also change costumes in my skit regarding this character (into the zero suit), so if anyone can share tips of making this costume easily removed I would much appreciate it.

I'd rather go to the props-section with that question, that's where the experts for such a thing really lurk.

I recommend checking out featherweights cardboard tutorials. He has one on how to make a helmet that should also work with armor, I'd think. I plan to use it on a megaman cos anyway.
Alternatively check the transformers requests for help (search function), it might also give you hints.

I would use cardboard.... I know it works pretty good for helmets... not to sure about the armor...
