Quilted/Puffer Vest questions?

Hi! I haven't asked for help on here in a while, and I guess I'd like to think I've gotten better at googling things, but what I can't find enough information on is puffer vests. I want to cosplay Mokuba Kaiba from the Battle City arc of Yu-gi-oh!

Instead of taking forever to find a vest like it in thrift stores or otherwise, I'd rather sew it myself. But what I'm not sure of is what fabric to use and how to achieve the puffer effect. I think I might sew sections and stuff? But I don't know if that's the best way to go about it and I'm also not exactly sure what fabric to use.

Also the pattern I'm planning on using and probably altering is this:

Not a bad choice of patterns, but I'm pretty sure Kwik Sew actually has a puffed vest pattern, so the guesswork of quilting is eliminated.

Quilting isn't hard so much as it has the potential to be hard on your machine. It's a lot to sew though and if you have a beginner level machine it may balk. Definitely practice on some scraps!
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.

Really? I hadn't seen anything about that! Now I really wish I could've found it. X_X
