Anubis from Zone of the Enders

....Yeah. I need help/advice with a lot of this to at least get me going. Anyone who knows this knows the nightmare it will be and anyone who doesn't, well...

Money wise I'm building this as I get money and taking my time to do it right so that's not too big of an issue. This also goes for time though I would prefer to get this done in time for Otakon.

My biggest current issues I am having are the orbitals that are supposed to float in the air and what would make a good base for this costume, as in whatever I'm wearing under any other armor piece or anything else I make on top of it. Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated.
Katsucon Komplete!!!
Next up is Otakon. Planned costumes:
Dante (Devil May Cry 3)
Grell (Black Butler)
Mako -Pro Bending outfit- (Legend of Korra)
And IF I can actually get it done in time *drum roll and dramatic music*

get your post moved to the prop & armor forum, better knowledge base there of the type of construction you will be doing.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.

id suguest looking into the few, mass effect or dead space, threads
as that will help iron out some plans for construction as its a similar style build
there may be a gundam or gungirl thread somewhere too

but basically they seem to start with an "armored wetsuit" look then build up

the pic doesnt show orbitals, but colapsable wings arnt ever easy either

if you havent yet, id try googleing vids for, gundam armor, costume wings (sci-fi),
daft punk helmet,
and perhaps look in other franchises like mech-warrior/command, WoW(warcraft),
warhammer, and other sci-fi military or medieval base
