I'm going to try to make a Kaneda (from Akira) costume for Halloween.
What craft materials do I want to use to make this happen?

I'm starting with a base of a red leather jacket
and a Nerf Stampede gun. I have red vinyl pants and goggles from ebay.
What materials and tools do I want to use to:
a) Mod the gun? I'm thinking PVC pipe and wood? What's easy to work with, relatively sturdy and can be bonded/glued together?
b) Make the power pack?
c) Paint the capsule on the jacket?
d) Make the buckles/snaps on the front?
Any other tips or suggestions would be appreciated, feel free to answer any part of this question!
