WIP: Jack Frost by lilylionheart WIP: Jack Frost by lilylionheart
Rise of the Guardians: Jack Frost

Hey guyz :)
So this is what I've been working on slowly through out summer vacation.
Theres a few things I'm not happy with the sweater, but I can live with it
and guyz! My wig styling abilities are improving! \(^o^)/
I'm really proud of myself.

I still have to had the straps to the pants, add a few details and make the staff.

I plan to debut this cosplay at PMX 2012

And yes, I used photo shop to change the color of my eyes. It's just way too much trouble for me to put on contacts for a makeup test.
I'm not too good with PS yet but I say gold star for trying
lol XD

FYI: everything is reversed cause I took the photo in front of a mirror

I actually purchased the sweater from this seller on ebay [link]
but they only had it in men's size
(I was having a difficult time finding the right style in woman's size :P)
So I fitted it from the sides and a bit from the upper arms to make it my size.
I also very lightly dyed it navy blue because I felt it needed to be just a tad more darker

As for the snowy effect,
first I lightly used Martha Stewart's multi-surface pearl paint to get sort of a snow dust effect
I then mixed White Mist puff paint with a bit of dark blue to make the cracks of ice.
Afterwards I then used the White Mist puff paint and sparingly and lightly added white cracks of ice.

Personally, I recommend that when you make the cracks of ice, to use long free brushstrokes instead of small detailed ones.
Here's a closer look at my sweater
Using the technique I suggested found on the arm, it looks more delicate, like glass and I found it to have a nicer effect as compared to the chest part where I was so focused on small details, making it look, at least to my eyes, fake.

Woooo! long explanation ^^;
But I hope I was helpful :)

do you think that the hoodie that u gave me the link to in navy would be the right color or should I go the route you took?

oh and I don't mind the long reply i actually found it quite useful

thanks for replying and for all the help!

hmmmm, I personally wouldn't suggest it.
Jack's sweater resembles more of the royal blue.
Mine only looks darker because I have really weird lighting at my house. :P

You don't necessarily have to dye it.
It was fine just the way it was.
I only decided to add a bit more darker color to it because I thought it would contrast nicely with a silver white wig :)

I'm happy to help. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask :)
I wish you all the luck on your cosplay :D
