The armour looks a really good fit and nicely shaped. I really like the little details to make your character more of an individual too!
The only concrit I can even think of is if you wanted to make your foam a little tougher, rather than just painting it, you can add layers of watered down PVA glue to give it a stronger finish. Personally I've never got to grips with foam armour, but there's some brilliant tutorials for strengthening it on youtube and deviantart. :)

This is a cool idea. The cape is cool! :)
It's heard to give suggestions on how to improve as it's a OC, but I think if you added a bit more detailing onto the chest plate it'd look even cooler - just little metal rivets where it joins or some etched in details/wearing in!
