How to make clothes look frosted?

I plan on cosplaying Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians next year for Zenkaikon, but the thing is.. I have no clue where to begin with the clothes. They are fairly simple, but they have frost designs on the hood, pockets, sleaves, and all over the pants. I really don't want to sit down and put these designs on by hand, because I know I will probably screw it up, but at the same time, I don't know how else to do it. Any ides?

You can try to make this textures with wrinkled paper, or anything like that. You must look for something with texture, cover it with paint and go. For the areas with no drawings, you can spread fabric paint with a toothbrush and a little piece of cardboard. I think that, soon or after, you will have to retouch some parts by hand, but if you do it this way, it would be easier and faster.

You could get a sponge of something like that and dip in white paint. Pat it around the areas you need the frosty look, just make sure there isn't too much paint on the sponge.
