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.
