The Boy who rose from Ice by Jayuna The Boy who rose from Ice by Jayuna
Costume: Colonial Jack Frost
Series: Rise of the Guardians
Debuted: Con-G 2013


I love the fact that I live right behind a part of frozen lake Ontario. This location was literally steps away from a back door to my apartment building! I really enjoy the fact you can almost see the wind in this picture from the blowing snow.

Huge props to my roommate who braved the slush/snow storm to snap a few pictures of me <3


Everything on the costume is made by me. Both vest and cloak/pant fabrics are varying colours of faux suede. Shirt is a quilters cotton. Shirt was drafted, and cloak and pants were modified from patterns. The paint was dry brushed with a toothbrush which had varying lenghts of bristles so I got some really cool effects that way. The paint is a mixture of a pearly white/silver, a light blue, blue glitter, and silver glitter to add dimension.

Wig also styled by me. First time really putting spikes in a wig! I hope my attempt worked out okay~ It's actually a pretty light silver even though it looks a bit darker than that here.

Staff is literally made up of braches held together by duct tape Its one huge birch branch as its base and 3 smaller pieces I cut. The base was then covered in two layers of paper mache and there's a a bunch of layers of detail painting.

Thanks for looking~

It ... Was more than slightly cold, but I wasn't out in them for more than 30sec at a time at least~ and some of the shots made it worth it :)

You were really impressive at Con-G, probably the best Jack I saw there ^^ I was about to run after you for a picture (I was cosplaying Grell from Kuroshitsuji with Lady Phantomhive^^) but my friend made me look away for TWO SECONDS and you were gone xD (I had a big dramatic "NOOOO! I MISSED JACK!" but I was okay after, lol)

Your Jack cosplay is amazing though :D The details like the snow and the little ruffles coated in frost at the bottom of the pants are perfect! Were you feet cold in that picture? xD

Eee, thank you so much for saying so!!! :D I'm sorry you missed me, I ended up wandering around quite a bit when I wore this at the con~ but it makes me happy to hear that you would have run after me XD

Thanks yous! I'm really glad you think so. And oh yes, ohhhh yes... I only lasted maybe 30 seconds after this shot was taken before I ran back to my boots! It was like a slushy snow too which may have made it worse ):

Eeeeehhh, Canada, it happens XD I live in Eastern Ontario right on the lake essentially so I think we get a bit of lake effect too~
Awww, that sucks though!! Do you live somewhere warm? It's actually been a pretty awesome year for snow around here~

Hahaha, yea this definitely won't be something I'll be all that keen to do again soon XD Snow storms are damn cold, not too mention it was a slushy snow which didn't help things. =P But I only lasted maybe 30 seconds before I went back to my boots!

Thanks! Yea thankfully I'm ok and din't get sick, now that would have sucked!

Definitely~ Anything with flash wouldn't have worked because it just highlighted the falling snow like crazy! But you end up with a few that work out thankfully like this one~ :D

Hehehehe, thanks! I was kinda only barefoot for maybe half a minute to get the shot and get back in my boots. But yea, it was damn cold. XD And I was sort of in and out of them and it was gross slush snow and slightly not worth it for most of the shots but worth it for this one~! :D
Thank you so much!!! :heart:
