Uchiha Madara's Armor Help please! I've never made Armor before!

Since I have no idea how to make it, or what to use, I'm asking you, my fellow cosplayers, if you have advice/tips/tutorials about how to make armor.
Madara has more of a samurai-style armor than like a knight's.
And here's some ref pictures of Madara-
So, yes. I've been looking around, I've seen people using types of plastic for their armor, and my friend just recently told me about craft foam.
So yes, help is appreciated!

Aside from that, I love using plastic for armor. The stuff I use is called sintra, and its primarily used for signs. You can heatform it, sand it, paint it, and its easy to cut. The only trouble I had with using it for full armor is that it was pretty restricting; I really couldnt sit down in it.
Here is the costume Im talking about with the full armor.
I love the plastic for its rigidity and durability. Anything like craft foam or fabric not backed with a stiff material will most likely wrinkle up and look tacky.
If you have any specific questions about using plastic for armor or how to attach it, just PM me.

Click on the little magnifying glass in the upper right hand area above the photo, it will zoom in and let you drag the image around.
