Here's a reference (http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3179/2847268545_70f0cf3b32.jpg) for ya. For those who don't know it's the big guy.

I've always loved Komamura, but I'm really not big enough to pull him off. Good luck.

For my daughter's Ukitake, we used McCalls 2940 for her captains jacket. Simply leave off the sleeves.

For the komamura's shoulders, I'd use padding (covered in a tan material) similar to shoulder pads (dense, shape-able, foam padding). And covered buttons in the same tan fabric.

I'm not too sure how you could do the helmet.
