6 Animal Costumes That Haven’t Been Featured Yet on “The Masked Singer”
Between an all-star celebrity cast and a panel of famous judges like Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke, “The Masked Singer” is fun for everyone to watch! The show is also constantly bringing out new character costumes, and there are some ideas that still haven’t been used. Here are seven animals that have yet to grace the stage.
A furry, long-nosed creature with a bushy tail, the anteater is mostly native to Mexico, Sout and Central America. This gentle giant is considered extinct in some countries and thrives on a diet of insects like ants and termites. Why feature an anteater on the show? Simply put, it’s an animal that doesn’t get much attention — most people don’t think about anteaters on a day-to-day basis, which would make the costume all the more exciting of an addition.
Surprisingly, there hasn’t been a wolf character featured on the show despite the popularity of canine characters! Scattered all across Europe, Asia and North America, there are countless species of this majestic creature to work with. The fun lies in the potential to take the wolf in any direction: scary, ultra-realistic, cute, the list goes on. What’s more, the wolf could be taken a step further in the form of a werewolf!
Few aquatic characters have seen a debut on “The Masked Singer”, and the time is right for an octopus. Ranging in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, the universally identifiying feature of an octopus is its eight appendages. These soft-bodied ocean dwellers are can be found all over the ocean, and over thirty species are currently known to science. From the adorable dumbo and umbrella octopus to the grandeur of the giant octopus, this creature has a lot of potential for a great costume.
An incredibly beloved animal across pop culture, it’s a wonder the sloth hasn’t been used for a character yet. Native to tropical jungles across Central and South America, sloths are sleepy creatures that tend to live life at a very slow pace. These creatures move at a speed of about forty yards per day and spend up to twenty hours sleeping. Contestants could absolutely run with the concept of a fun, silly sloth, or even turn the concept on its head; for example, what if a world-renowned dancer took over this idea?
“The Masked Singer” is full of surprises, and the world is looking forward to more great costumes in the coming seasons!
