Jack Frost is the main character in the 3D computer-animated film Rise of the Guardians. Jack was originally a human boy, but lost his own human life saving his sister after she fell into the water while ice skating. The Man in the Moon witnessed Jack’s heroism and turned him into a Winter Spirit. Jack loses all memory of his former life as a human and begins a new life full of mischief. Jack Frost makes an easy costume for boys and men to wear on Halloween or for Cosplay or other dress up occasions. Here are some ideas for creating your own Jack Frost costume.
One of the essential pieces in creating a do it yourself Jack Frost costume is his trusty Shepard’s crook. Though there are not any ready made versions that exactly resemble the shape of the character’s crook in the movie, a typical looking cane will still work well for the costume. Made from brown plastic, this crook comes in four easy to assemble pieces that require being screwed together. Measures 68 inches tall.

The sweatshirt is the same shade of blue from the movie and is available in sizes extra small, small, medium, large, and extra large, and XX large. Made from 50% polyester and 50% cotton fabric, the hoodie is washable and will not fade. Hoodie sweatshirt features a hand painted snow swirl design on the hood, around the neck and shoulders areas, around the cuffs at the wrists, and around the edges of the pocket on the shirt. Perfect garment for playing the part of the mischievous Jack Frost.
Short Anime Cosplay Wig
This is a short wig with longish bangs, similar to the hairstyle of Jack Frost in the Rise of the Guardians movie.

Wig is made from high temperature resistant fibers. Can be paired with blue hoodie and brown pants for an authentic Jack Frost costume.
Shepherd’s Crook White
Perhaps in portraying Jack Frost you would prefer a white Shepard’s crook over a brown one to give it a more “frozen” appearance. This crook is made from 100% plastic with four detachable pieces that easily screw together to assemble, or come apart for handy storage when not in use.

COSPLAY Tutorial – Jack Frost RISE OF THE GUARDIANS
This video has helpful hints for creating the pants of Jack Frost (she uses shorts but you could do this effect on longer pants).

You will also need paper mache clay, dark brown paint, light brown paint, white paint, glitter paint, tissue paper, and duct tape. The designer tapes you through the step by step process of creating a very realistic staff that achieves the unique shape of the crook of the staff. A multi step painting process also gives the staff the fine details and makes it look like the staff in the movie. The perfect accessory for any Jack Frost costume.
Jack Frost Cosplay Makeup Tutorial (Rise of the Guardians)
This is a great makeup tutorial in which the person applies a whitish powder to the whole face for a matte effect, emphasizing the eye creases, nose bridge, and jaw line. Loose baby powder is also used to achieve this effect. To make the look even more authentic, the artist placed bright blue contacts in her eyes, just like the character of Jack Frost. She goes on to demonstrate how to get the full eyebrow effect and then conceals her lips with a nude shade of lipstick to make them blend in with the rest of the pale, frosty looking complexion. She then adds a white anime style wig to complete the look and add the finishing touch.
