Well, I'd say first serch the internet to see if anyone has put up a list of the comedian cosplay and what you need for it. I had a look on your profile and saw you wanted to do the Vietnam style one. I'd just keep watching bits of the film to get an all round idea of what he wears or google some images, or both really. If you come up with very little, I'm sure we can come up with a list of what you need, as off the top of my head, you'll need the eye mask, the shoulder armour and things, can't remember what else he wears off the top of my head. Another thing is it the film version or the comic version? As there's usually a variation but I'm not sure about this one

Reference images and screencaps. Make a lot of them, find a lot of them, and study them.
