Kiel Johnson and Klai Brown recently built a fantastic 8-bit costume for a Toshiba commercial directed by Docter Twins. Johnson and Brown cut the "pixels" from large sheets of high density foam and glued them to an articulated cardboard suit structure. Kiel says, "I think I cut around 4000 pixels. Not all used for Gary... we are building two more characters for a video project." He's posted a posted a slew of terrific images from the build and commercial shoot.
