Constructing DC Comics: "The New 52" Costumes/Armor (Aquaman, Flash, or Batman)

I am interested in trying to construct an Aquaman, Flash, or Batman costume in the "New 52" style. However, I am new to cosplay and could use some guidance. I'm unsure of how to go about making an Aquaman costume, particularly the fish-scaled torso and arm coverings. Specifically, I don't know how to go about creating the scales and attaching/binding them to a base covering which can be worn. I'm also unsure of how to create the collar.

As far as a Flash or Batman costume, they, too, now have costumes that have some resemblance to armor, but with light-weight and streamlined designs. Does anyone have advice on how to go about overcoming these challenges? My apologies if this does not fit this particular forum category.

I will try to find more images that give a clearer sense of each character's look/design, but for now I have included a link to an image of the current Justice League (which includes the characters mentioned in this thread).

Here are some Aquaman images. Depending on the artist, the scales seem to vary in roundness or "jaggedness". In one image, some of the costume appears to have been damaged.
