Choice of Metal for Armour?

I have been wanting to make a suit of Armour made out of sheet metal for cosplay. I wanted to know what will be a better choice between Aluminum and stainless steel? I am considering weight, ease of bending/ shaping and creating moveable joints (using rivets maybe?)

In my opinion, aluminum would be easier to work with because it is softer, lighter, and easier to bend and puncture. Neither option is remarkably cheap.
