Okay, so I'm planning a cosplay for Ezio (the version from Assassin's Creed 2) by fanime 2012 and I need some big time help.

I'm planning on starting everything off with the hood (I don't really see the difference wether or not it is attached)
I think what I'm going to do for the arms of the shirt and the pants I'm going to get a rennacance (did I spell that right? haha) shirt and regular pants legins for like 10$
The cape I already have someone who can do that for me if I pay for materials.
I guess what I'm really asking help for is with these.
How do I go about making his main top? I'm thinking of buying red fabric(cut it and sew for the red looking lines) and white fabric. What type of fabric do you think looks most like his outfit?
And how should I got about making the under part? Mainly with the signiture designs he has all at the bottom that seems like some kind of fairy (to me anyway)
And the belt, mainly the buckle part. I want it out of metal but it's just to heavy and expenisive, what would be a good alternitive?
If you can help me thanks A LOT!
Also, sorry if I'm kinda sucky at asking the way I did, this is one of my first cosplays where I'm pretty much alone because if I did something it was mainly with friends and yeah haha

I've seen a few good alternatives to using metal for the buckle part; one being wood and the other being resin. There might be someone around that can cast one for you out of resin. itll be light weight and really detailed.

Mmmm, a couple of things with this then I will say. First off, the best fabric to use would perhaps be a mix of damask and cotton, from what i've seen.

http://www.cosplay.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=34628&d=1288381189 that's a good link for the designs. Basically take one of those small knives used in scrapbooking or painting and just cut out the grey parts to basically make a stencil.

Finally for the buckle, I've seen Fimo, which is polymer clay used as the belt. Basically, you put it on a rounded acrylic plate and bake it, before you take a handsaw or jigsaw to it. If that's too hard, then Resin would be the way to go. But, you can also do that for the vambrace too.
