Cool Jack Frost Costumes
Ready to Chill the World?
The Guardians was one of my favorite animated movie in recent years. Not only because of the style, but the character of Jack Frost was really cool (pun intended). He's a complex character, though he appears flip and useless at the beginning. I really loved watching the movie with my kids.
Now we're looking at Halloween costumes and Jack Frost costumes are high on the list! It's a crazy simple costume, which is something my wallet likes. We could probably even do it ourselves, though there are some easy options available on Amazon, too.

What Does Jack Frost Wear?
This is one of the simplest outfits you could pick for Halloween, because Jack Frost is a really laid back kind of guy. That means he doesn't have an elaborate robe or anything. In fact, the most complicated thing about this guy is his hair!
Jack has brown pants, which you can find at any thrift store, or just pull some from the attic. They can be any kind of pants, but you will probably want something that is easy to move in, particularly if you're going dancing.
He also wears a special hoodie. This is dark blue with frost designs on it. You can either buy the hoodie or make your own if you're feeling artistic.
Jack Frost Costume Goodies
Not interested in making your own hoodie? Then you can buy one! You'll also need to figure out the hair. Jack has white hair to match the frost that he paints. And a curved staff is also necessary for striking ice into the hearts of the evil shadows.
This wig may not be designed for Jack Frost costumes, but it is definitely what you need if you're going the wig route.
Here's a cheaper version of the hoodie, if you're looking to save money. It's also a darker blue and more elegant than the other options.
No interest in a wig? Then you can spray your hair white for the night with this easy hair color.
Make Your Own Jack Frost Costumes
Have you ever seen bleach designs? These can be done with bleach pens. It's a fairly easy technique that would work wonderfully for a Jack Frost hoodie. All you need to do is buy the blue hoodie and design your elegant frost designs yourself.
The bleach pen should be tested, since you might not get white like you expect. Sometimes the shirt will turn orange or green, so definitely test first.
Another option would be to use white fabric paint. You could easily make your own designs or use a floral style stencil to get the right designs.
You can see in the image that the design is very simple, with swirls and little branches off the main stem. Anyone can do this!

Bleaching in Action
Curious about the bleach design method? Here's a video on how to do it.
This is a good video to see exactly what technique you need to use. You will see that the design is somewhat similar to what you'll want for the frost patterns.
Ready to Decorate
Want to try your hand at bleaching? This is one of the best known pens on the market, so it's a good one to start with.
Here's the perfect blue hoodie. It's designed to be nice and warm for chilly fall nights, too.
If you choose to paint the hoodie, this is great paint. It dries soft, not like those stiff prickly paints. I like this one since it blends into the fabric better.
