Jack Frost Hoodie Details - Download for Best View by xHee-Heex Jack Frost Hoodie Details - Download for Best View by xHee-Heex
A few people have asked in messages to see some closer shots of the painting on my hoodie, so I just compiled some of my favorite shots! I hope it can help somewhat- I followed no particular pattern, just made lots of small strokes and lines and thought a lot about cracked ice! Using many different colors helps, too! It gives the finished look a lot more depth, especially from a distance.


-The hoodie (which began as an XXL hoodie, was dyed, and then deconstructed and resewn together with dual seamlines stitched into the front and back and a new front pocket) is painted with blue fabric paints, a fabric pen, brushed on 3D glitter paint, and touches of white acrylic paint that were brushed and patted on for the frost effects.

Can I ask? What size brush did you use? Probably really small I imagine. &Did you use multiple colours for the blue, or the frost, or both? I'm kind of confused. :o
Also, I'm debating painting on a frost effect on a scarf I'm knitting for a friend who also cosplays Jack Frost, & looks a lot like him to begin with! Can I ask your opinion on the paint? Is it ok to use regular white acrylic on the scarf if it's (obviously) going to be worn outside in the snow, since it will get wet? I still don't know if my thoughts are final on adding the effect, but if I decide to, I want to be sure because it can't be undone.
Thanks for reading, & if ou get back to me on the paint thing, thanks! :)

Oh man... uh, I'm pretty sure I used the smallest brushes I could find. I honestly can't recall exactly what colors were used. But there were multiple blues, all leading up to white, and a few different glitter paints as well. It's really just about what combinations YOU like! :3 And for a scarf, you'll want to use fabric paint, which is flexible.

It's ok, ive got different brushes to choose from, I was just curious how you went about it. But I've got a rough idea now. & ok! If I can get fabric paint I'll use that, & I have subtle glitter I can add in too. You were very helpful! Thank you!! Keep cosaying! :D

I'm curious, do you remember the dye(s) you used for your hoodie? It's a beautiful color!

I don't, I'm sorry! But it was a dusky, cobalty sort of blue that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

This is awesome! Great job on it! I am trying to do a Jack Frost cosplay for Otakon and/or Comic Con, but I can't find a good hoodie :( I don't have the artistic talent you do xD If you could, would you ever make more of these for others?

Hi there! Probably not, simply because mine took SO LONG AND BUH! xD I'm sure there are other folks who commission hoodies though, hopefully looking around a little more will yield good results for you! :3

Darn xD aha, I may end up attempting it myself. Unsure yet. I want it for Otakon and/or Comicon, probably moreso for Comicon because my friend I am going with is cosplaying him (not very well :/) and another friend we are meeting up with is as well xD I may end up sticking to the original version of him. Before he becomes Jack Frost. But thanks anyway!

Wow that looks perfect! Two questions, was it really expensive, and is it safe to wash? I'm considering doing a Jack cosplay and I'm hoping to use the hoodie multiple times so washing without fading too much would be good.

I used fabric paints, so it should be good to wash. When in doubt though, as always, carefully handwash. I don't thiiink I spent much on it? I got everything at hobby lobby. It just depends on the brands you use, I'm sure.
