I come looking for a bit of cosplay help! My friend wants to cosplay Jiraiya and we could appreciate any help of how to make some pieces of it or how to go about it in general since I don't think either of us have ever made a cosplay like this before.

The part that confuses me most is the big golden chest piece thingy. Also how to go about the head is a bit confusing as well. Does anyone have any ideas on how to go about making these things? Even just some little ideas would be useful to us! I don't know anyone who has cosplayed as him before so I don't really even know who to ask.

Thank yoooou!

This is a bit late, but here's a link to a Tumblr post I made on how we constructed our Jiraiya costume:

The head is a modified acrylic globe. We bought the globes off amazon.com (search for Acrylic globe):

The chest was fiberglass over a cardboard form, bondoed to be smooth and with craft foam details.
