Best way to reproduce muscle-like metallic armor/prosthetic?

I'm working on cosplaying as this pretty awesome redesign of Marvel's Taksmaster by deviantartist GhoulBiz, but since I first wanted to make an Adam Jensen (Deus Ex) cosplay I never found a proper way to effectively make something that would work as those "muscle-like" shiny armors/prosthetics both characters wear.

Can you help me with that? As any of you managed to actually pull off an effective Adam Jensen before?

Thank you for your time!

I think how you do this will really depend on your budget and skills.

Anything from craft foam to resin to latex would potentially work here to varying degrees.

Craft foam is more "sewing" and shaping skills, whereas you could do sculpting, casting, and molding. Or you could do 3D design and fabrication.

You could even do cardboard or papier-mache or Wonderflex as a base.

There are a lot of options and it really depends on what you're skilled at or willing to learn and how much you can afford.

Actually in the pipes:
- Remaking Ser Loras doublet.
- Luke Skywalker, A New Hope
- Wind Waker starter costume in swim material
Eventually: Paul from Dune, Faramir, Harry Sullivan
