Attack on Titan cosplay tips?

Hiya, I'm planning on making shingeki no kyojin cosplay for next year. I'm going to buy a pre-made jacket, since its cheaper to do that than to buy a jacket, the badges and sew it on.

What I'm curious about is how to make the straps? I was thinking about getting some pleather and little buckles, and just cutting the pleather into strips and sewing on the buckles...for my legs, I was just going to do two straps around my thighs instead of the ones going down past the knees, but I don't know what to do about the upper body portion. should I get some kind of braces and put a strip of pleather across the chest?

I'm not planning on starting the 3DMG until the outfit is complete, because if I don't have time I could just go without or save up and buy it (even though they cost a small fortune).

Link above is a post I just reblogged onto my tumblr that has references to what OP is talking about.

As for any advice, I'm actually still analyzing it a lot myself. I would love to hear opinions of what others think too.

You might want to look up repealing harness for inspiration as the style is very similar.
