Now you can be Big-Al!


If you’re a fellow con-goer like me, no doubt you see Vocaloid cosplayers taking up most of your average convention. Well adding to the Vocaloid cosplaying craze QQCosplay has now made a custom Big Al costume ready for order at the price of 129 USD.

The costume design is the same as on his box-art and includes his jacket, belt, pants, and arm band(no awesome headphones unfortunately). As of now QQcosplay is the only cosplay site I have seen to sell a Engloid outfit. Hopefully they will sell more in the future.

Vocaloid Big Al face downloading issues *Updated*

I’ve been searching the web and noticed that a lot of people seem to be having download issue with Vocaloid Big Al. Fortunately, PowerFX has caught on to this as well, and is trying to fix the problem as we speak. But because of this issue I would like to ask every one to hold off buying Big Al until the problem is fixed. I will update later once the problem has been solved.

Edit: So according to PowerFX, there wasn’t a problem with the download, it was just that Big Al was just too Big… 2.7 GB in fact. But don’t worry PowerFX has added another download which is only 1.7 GB. Also if your connection failed before they will send you a custom burnt cd/provide alternate download link free of charge.

BIG AL IS HERE(And this time I mean it)

Yes, that right everyone. Big Al is now available for the download price of $149. You can purchase him here.

I can’t wait to see all the lovely songs you guys make with him.

(Also I recommend you guys listen to his demos on the site. They are really impressive)

EDIT: Once again thanks to the awesome people at VO, I was able to obtain the demos from Big Al site.

The Voice of Vocaloid Big Al

This might seem like a pointless blog entry but a lot of people seem to be interested in the people who gives the Vocaloids their voices. Especially the case with Engloids since we rarely get information on the VAs.

Well, thanks to Kimicatdemon, I now know that the VA for Big Al is a man called Frank Sanderson.

Frank is now an ex-employee of PowerFX. He helped created a lot of things for the company such as their Sound library, Apple loops, and other products.

Frank now works as a voice professionalist. Here is a example of him voicing a Vocaloid Tutorial.

You can find more of his voice over work here.
