When Chris Frazer Smith worked on the Samsung commercial that showcased an eclectic mix of people dressed up in character, he photographed a strange collection of pictures.

Using the actors in the commercial as his subjects, Smith selected some of the most realistic outfits and put them together into one collection. He used the natural backdrop for some of the shots, or put people in front of a plain black screen. This allows the focus to be specifically on the people in the photo, and this has created a memorable mosaic of extraordinary people. The subjects include a football player, a viking, a cowboy and a Marie Antoinette impersonator. When viewing this series by Chris Frazer Smith, it's impossible to tell if these people are actors, or if they are actually like the outfits they are in.
