Another good drawing of yours! I think you're one of the first artists I've seen who depicts that Jack probably wearing Colonial knee length trousers and Native American style leggings. I always guessed he was wearing that based on what I've seen of colonial era rural clothing. People tended to borrow a lot of ideas from the Native Americans in the region. I'm so happy to see someone else has that depiction, too, I love the details on the snow and the trees.

Thank u Fjord! I love Native American history, their tradition, costume and way of living.
When I saw "Rise of Guardians", at the beginning, Jack wore something like this clothes, and I love them!
I was hoping that he wearing them for a longer time during the movie...but has not been so >_<

Yeh, I liked the original clothes, too. I understand why they went with the updated look to make Jack relate to teenage and child viewers. My take on it is that he keeps "borrowing" clothing from different time periods to always keep up with what kids are wearing. I was actually writing a fanfic take on the movie yesterday that told the story a bit like Neil Gaiman's "American Gods" concept with legends surviving in modern day America. I was writing about Jack replacing a battered Civil War jacket with a 7th cavalry jacket he nicked from sleeping cavalry men where they were camping at the Rosebud Valley in Montana before the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Records from the soldiers keeping diaries reported cold weather and frost in the morning, something unusual for June, but spring came very late in 1876 and Montana is high country, so you can have some cold nights in the summer.

I did see your Native American pictures, too. They are gorgeous. I, also, like Native American traditions.

Oh and speaking of which I actually read somewhere that during the civil war Jack Frost was called General Frost by the Union soldiers.

Yes-- that is true-- it seems some incident during the March to Atlanta when Union soldiers were encountering southern summers and malaria for the first time. A frost made it possible for them to move onswards since it cooled the weather down and killed mosquitoes. So that's where the name came from. You can see a cartoonist's image from a Civil War era newspaper on Wikikedpa under the Jack Frost entry.
