Question Where to Begin?

So, I am brand new to the world of making costumes, but I really want to go as Mr. Incredible to GenCon this year (that's in August, for those who don't know). I am already working on getting in shape (slimming waist and thighs, building arms and shoulders). I really want to do the best I can to bring this character to life.

Below is a picture of Mr. Incredible (in his blue suit, which is the one I prefer) for reference. I have no existing clothes that will fit this costume, so I'll need to buy/make everything. My current problem is that I don't know where to begin. Should I start by buying a shirt and working on the logo? Should I find shoes and start on boot covers? Should I try to find blue rubber boots that fit (I wear wide shoes)? Should I be trying to find a wig?

I just feel completely overwhelmed by this and was hoping that someone might have some advice.

Thanks!
