Check Out The Flash's Full TV Costume

We've seen the mask and now the rest of the speedster's attire has been revealed. Check it out!

The Flash has his very own pilot heading to the CW! Grant Gustin made his debut as Barry Allen on Arrow and we witnessed how he gets his powers. However, watching Barry step into a costume and seeing those powers in action is being saved for his pilot. We previously got a look at Gustin wearing the mask, but now a much better look at the full costume has been released! Prepare your eyes, Viners.

The pilot's director and executive producer, David Nutter, says they team behind the show is thrilled with the design. "I hope the fans who treasure the character are as excited as we are by what costume designer Colleen Atwood has achieved with this latest version of The Flash’s iconic suit." Well, what do you think? Do you share his enthusiasm or are you not exactly the biggest fan of this costume? Don't be shy, share your thoughts with us below!

Don't care for the texture of the material on his upper body and the lack of white on his symbol but still look pretty good :)

Honestly, not sure I like it much. Too dark and leathery. However, I don't care much for Oliver's costume either. What matters to me is the execution of the show and the writing. I have high hopes for that.

Rating from 1-10 I'll give it an 8. It's good but would prefer a better design on the arms and the regular logo with the white background instead of red.

It looks cool, but I still love the Flash I grew up with! I'll give it a try as Green Arrow has been so cool.

Not bad.

I still think Grant Gustin doesn't fit as a good Barry Allen. And the suit is meh. I wouldn't expect much from a TV series, but all in all I don't think that Flash is something that can be pulled off anywhere except the silver screen. Still very excited for the show. But its putting my standards a little lower just for now.

Not bad.

I'm not the biggest Flash fan but excited for this show if it's anything like Arrow is. I think the costume looks good.

I'll need to see it in action before making a full judgement, but at this point I'm not convinced it's the right look...

Um....why does this look reddish purple?

The first image (posted below) looks crimson red (and pretty sharp), and this looks reddish purple. I want to like this image above but I do not. I don't like the red filler for inside the lightning bolt circle-especially cause it is a different color red. maybe it is the lighting, but this is a swing and a miss. please fix it

Looks great

I think it would be VERY hard to make a full bright red body suit not look dorky, so good job

I dig it.

It looks awesome! I hope when he runs, that yellow lines he has in New 52, show up.

Edited by AmazingWebHead

Okay, that looks awesome.

Look at that big ol' melon head

I like it, tho he does look like a red Captain America! I would have added some yellow into his boots. Looks good!

Less thread.

I can dig it. It'll probably grow on me as we see more but it's not that bad!

I wouldn't say it's the full costume. What isn't obscured by the shadows is obscured by Flash standing like that.

But yeah, pretty cool.

looks dope

Looks cool

The body is good but the head looks a bit off imo

Posted by Sachmoo

Daredevil reboot? HAHA

I just hope its a good show.

Posted by Black_Arrow

Now this is a real costume not like the ones from Smallville.

Edited by BuNKiTZ

Not. Enough. YELLOW. Seriously, it looks pretty bad for me. At least from this angle. And because of the lack of yellow. I mean, come on, where are the lightning bolts on his forearms? The boots are supposed to be yellow! I mean, I know it's their version and all that, but they could've done something to balance the red and yellow...

Hopefully it'll look better once we see the whole thing. I just hope there IS a belt there...

I'm not a fan of the lack of yellow on the overall costume and the missing white from the symbol. Nonetheless, this is a good looking costume for a TV show and it does work on the actor in action. So not too shabby at all considering the track record of superhero costumes on screen.

Posted by Cloudguy

Not so sure I like the look of the costume.

Posted by Kal'smahboi

I like it.

Posted by longbowhunter

I really like it. I'm actually surprised they're going with such a literal interpretation. Guess I'm still expecting the CW to Smallville all these superhero costumes.

Posted by sentryman555

I really hope the tone of the show is different from arrow.

Posted by mickeymayhew

a bit dark but I'll give it a go

Edited by Lone_Wolf_and_Cub

Lmfao, his head is huge!

Posted by AllStarSuperman

I like it a lot actually

Posted by CRTrobinson

Not thrilled but at least they are finally putting them in their costumes. Way better than just a mask or black leather.

Not the best picture...I liked the last picture of just his face more

Posted by kennybaese

@sentryman555: I feel like the showrunners said that it was going to be more lighthearted than Arrow was, but I could be making that up. The scenes that Barry was in when he was introduced on Arrow definitely shifted toward being lighter, so I think that's a good indicator.

Posted by JakeN7

I love it! Looks great! Just wish it had yellow boots...

Posted by Omega Ray Jay

Looks pretty good

Posted by GrumpyBear74

Pretty damn solid! I bet they make a few tweaks during the series to the costume like they did with Arrow

Posted by Captain13

That's not the coolest live action costume I've seen...

I guess Flash's costume just doesn't translate well to live action.

Posted by CantDance93

It looks good, not the greatest angle to view it from but I wish they went with a more armoury look like in the New 52 or Injustice.

Posted by GBandit

For a TV show it looks good. Smallville superman looked nothing like Sups and no one cried. He looked like Neo had a kid with Supergirl and there was the product. At least this costume is quite close to the source.
