This is a pretty good reference. And it actually made me lean more towards the idea of taking a pleather jacket from a thrift store or something (even if it's a girl's jacket, no worries) and just hacking away at it so that all that's left is the chest portion. Then I'll just attach the red part for the stomach as a separate piece so that will kind of be a natural way to handle some of that seam detail that's all over the place on the armor. That could work and be much easier than making it from scratch.
Not to mention, I can leave the zipper on it and it'll be covered by the other red pieces. I may skip out on the seams along the pectoral region unless the jacket has those already (who knows, maybe it'll just work out that way).
Thanks for that! I at least have some idea now.
