Can anyone help me out with some places to get what I need? I want to get this done by May!!

I am about the same figure and size as the model if that helps.

It looks as if the lower portion of the corset is leather (could also be pleather or vinyl), so it would definitely be a full custom job or a something that was purchased seperately and "Frankensteined" together.
I would try one of the superhero costuming sites to see if anyone is up for a commission project or get some pointers on where/how. As the superhero costuming community is pretty tight knit, you may even get lucky and find out who the model is and get some better info on the costume.

As for the helmet and Load Bearing Vest (LBV) I would hit up your local Army surplus store. Helmets run for about $50 and the LBV $15-25
