Dru Gru Cosplay Costumes

When twin brothers, Dru and Gru, parents divorced, each took one child and went their separate ways. Dru’s father, Robert, was a top-notch supervillain and started a pig-farming business as a cover for his nefarious mainstream dirty businesses. However, he was totally unhappy with Dru’s total lack of talent and disposition for being a villain due to his overall clumsiness. Dru by nature is a kind-hearted, energetic individual. He easily panics and overreacts when he’s scared. He has a tendency to be uncooperative, disobedient, and behave childishly.

In Despicable Me 3, Dru decides to contact his brother Felonious Gru after his father passes away. This prompts Gru to find out from his mother about the existence of his twin brother he never knew he had. This was how Dru and Gru finally met when Gru with his family decided to visit Freedonia to meet Dru. It’s an all-in-the-family affair where you and your family members can cosplay as all these unique characters like Felonious Gru, Lucy Wilde, Margo Gru, Edith Gru, and Agnes Gru!
