Rise of the Guardians: Jack Frost by Malindachan Rise of the Guardians: Jack Frost by Malindachan
First of all, thank you all so much for all the favs and wonderful compliments on the first set of Jack photos I uploaded with the story. This is the last set for now, but I hope to get some more photos when the weather conditions are right (if not, then at least expect some after Katsucon).

Though this was a fairly simple cosplay to pull off, I always like to provide info for how I put my costumes together.

I styled my wig using a Jaguar and some short wefts in Silver from Arda-wigs.com. The wefts were mostly for the very front because originally the bangs were not as thick as I needed them to be.

The base hoodie was from Target, though it was originally pretty big on me, so I had to take in the size a lot.

Painting the hoodie was the most time-consuming part. I spent about 15 hours on the hoodie alone, and another few hours on the bottom edges of the pants. I used a combination of white fabric paint, glitter fabric paint, and blue fabric paint for some accents. I was very picky with how I wanted the area around the collar to be painted because in the reference the design reminded me of pine needles.

The pants were made out of a brown linen-looking suiting fabric. I used a leggings pattern, and I had to cut it out a bit bigger to start since the fabric doesn't really have any stretch to it (though I tried to cut the pieces out as close as I could along the bias so it'd have at least a little give). The top has elastic, and the bottom edges were cut to look torn (I used fray check to keep it from unraveling). I just used some bias tape for the wrappings around the bottom, but I had to dye them to get the color I wanted. They're top-stiched around the pants to keep them in place.

My husband :iconex-shadow: made the staff because I did not have the time before the convention. It's made mostly out of PVC pipe, a thin (but sturdy) cardboard tube, and masking tape. He used a stone textured spray paint to start with, but it looked pretty nasty since the color wasn't sticking well, but after adding a coat of normal brown paint it had an awesome texture to it. He did some hand painting with white and blue to match the references. The staff is made to break down into 3 pieces so we could pack it in our suitcase.
