artist kiel johnson and klai brown have teamed up to create ‘8-bit gary’ a costume that simulates the pixilated graphics from 8-bit video games. the project was a commission for part of a toshiba commercial. the suit itself was made from a cardboard structure that was then covered in hundreds of tiny pixel cubes made from a lightweight high density foam. brown wore the costume for the commercial shoot. the whole costume actually has quite a bit of movement for such a large and rigid form. the artists are working on more 8-bit characters for future projects. you can watch the full commercial here.
