So not sure I am posting this in the right forum, but couldn't see any other one that looked like it would fit better, so if I am wrong I apologize

Anywho, at an upcoming sci fi con this July I would really love to go as The Cape, from NBC's The Cape. Only problem is, I have not really done much along the lines of costume building in the past so could really use some advice on this one.
I have a sister who works in theater, and she may be able to make the actual cape, so I am covered on that. It is the belt and breastplate that I can see causing me all kinds of trouble, so if anyone has any advice on how I could go about making these I would apperciate, please remember that I have never really done this so simpler is better.

Here are a few pictures for those unfamiliar with the character.



This one is the only picture I could find that also includes the mask he started wearing in episode 2, could use a little advice on that one as well if possible.

I was wondering when someone would start a Cape thread. I love that show! Good luck on your costume!
