ROTG: My Name is Jack Frost by firewolf826 ROTG: My Name is Jack Frost by firewolf826
"I love being on my own. No rules, no responsibility. It's as good as it sounds."

Another photo from one of my self-mini-shoots. It was a little easier in the daytime, ahah hah. Hopefully having a snow photoshoot this winter :)
______________________________________________________

This costume is like a big art project. Dreamworks kills me with all their, albeit beautiful, very-hard-to-reproduce textures. To me, it's so much easier to make a costume with clean, neat construction than to recreate something old and weathered. Or covered in a light frost, even!

So although this costume looks and seems easy, I spent countless hours painting the hoodie and pants. I want to remake the pants altogether to try a different technique.

My proudest part of this costume is the staff that I constructed from scratch. I don't make props a lot, but when I do I often like them better than the costume itself... X'D

I'm not 100% satisfied with the wig, but it'll do!

Basically I started with two wooden poles, and cut the one into the hook shape and attached the pieces together with epoxy. Then I covered the whole thing in Bondo for the bark texture. Finally painted it brown and lightly spray painted for the frost.

Hope that helps!

Ack! Sorry for the delayed reply! Thank you so much, that makes me so happy to hear!!

For the hoodie, I used regular white fabric paint for most of it. The sparkly parts you see are probably the "3D" fabric paint I used on top, to give it some dimensions. The "translucent" white 3D paint has a bit of a glimmer. :)
