Otaha's Karas cosplay

I'm a noob at armor making. I have never done it before, but I have the sudden desire to do Otaha's Karas for Otakon.

http://animecaster.files.wordpress.c...t_15_karas.jpg

Anyone got any advice? Materials? Armor making techniques? etc etc.

Here are some examples you can maybe pull ideas from and tell me how it was done?

I have five months to commit to this costume and I'm gonna do it, I just need some direction since I want to make this in the best possible way =)

looks like it was made of foam, (amethystangel's automail tuts)-v http://www.youtube.com/user/theproplady#g/search
(risachantag's metal texture tut)-> http://risachantag.deviantart.com/ar...orial-44652823
to make it stronger I think you'd need to use fiberglass, though I don't know how fragile it would be, better to test it on a patch of foam first. ^_^
If you need more help pm me. ^o^
and also heres this: (gryphern's glowing eye tut)-v http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6l5UrRqc7Qw (for this you could use some blue tinted plastic and maybe some blue foam. ^o^

 Wow, I did not know there is a thread for Karas.

I have made one before,but it was not satisfying for me and I would like to make one again.

FYI, I made out of cardboard with enamel shine paint, but it requires very much calculations, and I do not think it is no easy way to make that armor with such non-elastic material.
