Would You Wear This Hideous Android Hoodie?

I guess I've given my opinion on it away in the headline, haven't I? Gizmodo's night editor Elly -- sorry, that should be Gizmodo's award-winning night editor Elly -- spotted this for sale at a Canadian fan convention. I'm all for creative cosplay, but this thing? No.

According to Elly, this stunning ensemble -- at least inasmuch as I'd want to stun anyone wearing it with some kind of club -- could be yours for only 60 Canadian dollars ($58). She spotted it attending the Fan Expo Vancouver. Update: It's made by Vancouver design company, Punch Brand, who specialise in character-based apparel. Google contacted them to produce the official custom Android hats and hoodies that you can pick up on the Google store.

You might have heard of Punch Brands from their popular anime-inspired crazyheads hats label.

Here's Elly trying on just the hat part, which was selling at the same stall for 20 Canadian dollars ($19). She's far too modest to bring it up, but on Friday night, she was awarded the Best Reviewer award at the 10th Annual Microsoft IT Journalism Awards. Because she's awesome, but you should have already known that.


    I can't really see it as that bad... but then it IS a hoodie though, so that disqualifies it as clothing.

    I came here fully expecting to say "Yeah, sure it's probably not as bad as you're making out" but then I was like: ...no. Absolutely not.

    For a child? Sure why not, no worse than any other hoodie with floppy ears or whatever.

    For an adult? Seriously?

    Fine if your a child under the age of 10 before you develop your know it all fashion guru skills (teenagers).
    How can anyone take you seriously if your an adult?
    Good luck if you decide to purchase!

    Wear it, and you'll succumb to all maner of viruses. Beware!

    Not as good as minecraft merch.

      And congrats Elly, does this mean they can give the crappy Breakfast Wrap and App Deal round-up posts to someone else and let you review more?

        Thanks! Now that I'm in Canada, it probably means less reviews if anything :( but I'll of course happily review whatever my editors want. It's just a matter of sorting out logistics.

    Looks official to me. The hats and hoodies are available at the Google store: http://www.googlestore.com/Wearables/Ladies+Android+Hoodie.axd

    Gonna pick up a hat for the kids!
