So I've never done a costume like this before and I need help with basic material and what not, where should I start?

What costume are you working on?

Each costume type has a dedicated forum where you can maintain a build log, communicate with prospective and current members, study other people's builds, source reputable vendors...

We have character-specific web sites called "detachments" where you can find armor vendors and all the info on how to put it all together. Do a ton of reading/research into the costume you want to do before buying anything. You can find the list of detachments here:

Stay FAR AWAY from Ebay, Amazon or any other web site that claims to make approvable armor.  Almost all are scams or sell complete junk.
Welcome to the Dark Side. We have coooookies!
