Black Rock Kaito Amor upgrade help

How does one approach fabric and foam armor? cause i'm thinking of starting a long 1 year armor, prop and fabric cosplay project upgrade for my Black Rock Kaito base.
what types are most recommended?

Feel that I am going for: Med-light for inside armor, med for shoulder, knee area
This is the base i'm using :


For shoulder armor, whatever type i use,
i'm going to stick it, but even i'm a novice what glue do i use or type of method?

any help is appreciated!

Materials considering: EVA foam.

Also utencils for EVA foam, i have no idea what items cut well with EVA foam and what glue work best with it.

For EVA, You can cut it with anything like scissors or an exacto knife but the cleanest cuts are made with heat, like a hot knife or foam cutter.

I've used plain old hot glue on my EVA projects but I've also seen contact cement recommended.

for finishing i heard that some people use vinyl after using resin on the EVA foam which kills the foam.
