For the armor in all honesty, the easiest would be to buy a fencing guard (women's obviously) then just adding subtracting as needed. I got mine that had the "2 boobs" configuration (for a lack of better term) but they sell the kind similar to Asuna in the "1 boob" configuration. For the detailing you can use acrylic trim to make it really pop. A knife and a heat gun will be all that you need.

I've written several articles if you plan to fabricate the chest piece outright, it can be done, but it's just a lot of work (sanding, sanding and moar sanding really) http://junkerscosplay.blogspot.com/

You can see the acrylic trim on the bracer and upper arm armor.
