I think using an organic material would make more sense, and would replicate the look best. Since you want to make the best Vega cosplay out there, I'd use the best materials and learn the best skills. Leather would likely be very useful for the bands and you could certainly etch the designs and stain a pale leather to a rich orange. And if you want it to fit perfectly when you flex you could take a lesson from wrist-watches. Many kinds of metal watches incorperate a layer of elastics between seperating panels of metal, so you could create a similar design, keeping the seams in less obvious places or making thin suede layers of leather to cover the seams (similar to the thin suede flap that covers the inner part of a leather-boot zipper). If I'm making any sense at all. ;D
