Ranking The Masked Singer Season 7 Costumes
While the main attractions of The Masked Singer are the hidden celebrities, the things behind them are the most unique part of the show. The elaborate costumes bring an extra layer of theatricality to the series that other singing competitions don’t have. For Season 7, a new costume designer is also part of the team.
Tim Chappel has made the trip across the Pacific Ocean from the Australian version of the show to the American version, as he will now be leading the costume design department.
15 Miss Teddy
Although there has already been a bear costume on The Masked Singer, this one takes a much more simplistic approach. There isn’t much, the bow on his head being the only “garment” he wears.
Miss Teddy is certainly cute and will fit right into Team Cuddly, but the basic qualities of the costume hold her back, which doesn’t make her particularly memorable. The singing voice hidden behind the costume had better be good, or Miss Teddy risks becoming one of the more forgettable contestants.
Lemur falls into a category similar to Miss Teddy; they’re certainly cute, but they’re also extremely simplistic compared to some of the other outlandish costumes the show has rolled out in the past.
The bottom half of the costume is just a pair of sparkly purple leggings, making it look like the designers haven’t even finished the full costume. Having a lemur as inspiration is a unique choice to say the least, its tail also being pretty cool.
Firefly caused minor confusion, like a previous photo, as seen on Twittershowed him as having yellow strokes, as opposed to blue in the most recent photo.
It’s unclear if they made a last minute change or if this contestant will be some kind of duo, but either way, this one isn’t one of the best costumes. The new one has been compared to Squidward Tentacles from Sponge Bob SquarePants, which is perhaps not exactly a compliment.
12 queen cobra
While Queen Cobra’s color combination is certainly attractive, unfortunately it doesn’t have much else going for it. It’s more of a bodysuit than an actual costume, while its mask is a little goofy.
The lips look a little misplaced, with her big bulging eyes also giving off creepy vibes. There have been snake-themed costumes in international versions of the show, and this one is sadly perhaps the least inspired of them all.
11 space bunny
Space Bunny gets props for his cool costume, but the face is an interesting choice. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it looks a lot more like a squirrel or a beaver than a rabbit.
The show has done a bunny costume in the past, with this bunny looking nothing like this one, so they did a good job of not making it too repetitive, at least. Still, it’s a cool costume, and it’ll be interesting to see if the space theme fits into the secret celebrity behind the mask.
ten baby mammoth
Baby Mammoth might also be a bit basic, but they’re way too cute not to be recognized, and they have some cool details. The pink, flowing, papier-mache exterior is a nice touch, giving the impression of fur without just putting fur on it, and audiences are likely eager to see who wears the costume in the upcoming season.
This costume seems to have definitely been inspired by The Masked Singer The Australian kitten costume, which Tim Chappel also designed.
As an intimidating costume with a massive head, Cyclops was definitely a successful costume design for The Masked Singer. As a member of Team Bad, they certainly match their creepy looks.
Lots of little details on this one elevate it from a medium suit to a large suit, with their lone eye appearing to glow, which is a nice touch. The messy looking goatee and earrings were also nice additions to the costume design.
Thingamabob, Thingamajig’s cousin from season 2, is placed in Team Cuddly, but he looks more like a monster than something to cuddle. The mouth resembles a vicious piranha, giving it a menacing aura. Despite that, it’s definitely one of the most interesting costumes of the season, and her sparkly rhinestone outfit is beautiful to look at.
It looks more monstrous than cuddly, but a monster was one of the best costumes in the UK version of the series, and Thingamabob is definitely following in its footsteps.
You really can’t go wrong with dog costumes, because (almost) everyone will find anything about dogs extremely cute, so naturally, this one is one of the best costumes this season.
The wet nose and sticking out tongue combo is adorable, and the way the fur on their faces is laid out is extremely realistic. The terrier in a choice of kilt strongly suggests this contestant may be of Scottish descent, and audiences will have to wait to find out.
6 jack in the box
The costumers really got into it with this one, opting for a quirky and unique design, and they greatly succeeded. Costumes like this are what make it difficult to defend the more simplistic, because Jack in the Box is so much more memorable and interesting to watch.
It’s a bit creepy, and it’s not clear exactly what the face is supposed to be modeled on, but they’ve done a great job of making them stand out from the rest of the field with their vibrant colors and intricate outfit.
Armadillo was the last costume to be revealed, and the show certainly saved one of the best for last. The various textures and patterns placed on the Armadillo elevate it from basic to intricate, and their design choices have paid off, as it’s definitely one of the most memorable costumes to appear in Season 7.
It looks both intimidating and cuddly and is probably the best armadillo costume since Ross’ holiday armadillo on Friends.
Hydra is the most menacing costume of the season, with its unique design also making it an exceptional costume. With three heads, it’s entirely possible that this is a group costume containing three different people.
This is already set to be the panelists’ boy band annual guess, one of the most guessed answers each season. With three people in there, a trio of siblings or a group of boys are guesses that would make sense.
The prince combines all the elements of an elite costume, with a beautifully crafted outfit that matches the character well. In this case, that character is a frog based on the popular fable Princess and the Frog.
The show once had a frog costume, which was one of the best costumes the show has ever had, but this one is different enough where it’s not a blatant rip-off and is an exceptional costume in its own right.
Aries has a heroic design, combining aspects of Greek and Roman gladiators with the gods Ares and Mars of those respective mythologies. The gladiator body with the ram horns gives off ominous vibes but in a more heroic way.
With most seasons featuring at least one athlete, it’s a solid bet to be that season’s star of the sport. They shouldn’t be counted because of this, however, as many athletes have shown they can get as far as celebrities many don’t know can sing.
Topping all other costumes, Ringmaster has a case for being one of the best-designed costumes the series has ever seen. The Ringmaster’s outfit is perfect, with the lower part of the robe sprawling to become a tall circus tent.
It’s extremely intricate, and it’s the perfect example of how good a costume is in the show. Hope the celebrity behind the mask has a great voice and goes far so viewers can enjoy Ringmaster for a long time.
