The Masked Singer costumes.
« on: April 04, 2020, 01:25:39 pm »
Has anyone ever watched the tv show The Masked Singer........simply because of the costumes that were being worn?

I've never watched the show myself, but some of the costumes worn by the singers have piqued my interest. ;)

Do a Google image search for The Masked Singer and you'll find lots of different costumes worn by the celebrity contestants. Some of which are "furry looking".  :o

Ha! Yes, I've see one or two of these!
But alas, I had life get in my way.

The one you show here is rather elaborate and might even be at home at a furry con.

The more I look at some of those costumes, particuarly the animal themed ones, the more I can't help but wonder if the person who designed all the costumes for the show got some inspiration and read construction advice and tutorials from various furry fursuit websites? Just seems like a bit of a coincidence, doesn't it? I mean, just look at that tiger costume photo link I posted earlier. It would not surprise me at all one bit if the costume designer(s) used any furry fursuit construction information for making any of the animal themed costumes from that tv show. I'm willing to bet they did, whether it's a small amount or a lot. ;)

It really seems likely that they borrowed heavily from furry constructing techniques doesn't it!?  But would they admit it?

Would they admit it? Not likely I don't think.

I thought the steampunk fox character was terrific.
