Research:

Building a costume requires a lot of planning. First you’ll need to figure out what you want to build, find lots of reference photos of it. If you’re making armor you’ll want to get accurate measurements of your body or figure out how big you want to make your prop.

Below are various tutorials to help you with this stage.
