The CW's The Flash: Here's Your First Look at Barry Allen in Costume (PHOTO)
Stop what you're doing! The CW and Warner Bros have released the very first image from The Flash, their in-the-works spin-off pilot of The CW's popular series Arrow, and it's a portrait of the title character's new costume!
Here, have a peek at how that gent in the photo above looks as a dude with superspeed, and then let's talk details:
As Arrow fans already know, the potential Flash-centric series stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, an assistant from the Central City Police Department's Criminal and Forensic Science Division who ends up with superspeed after a freak accident at S.T.A.R. Labs. Gustin has appeared as Allen in two episodes of Arrow this season, the latter of which served as The Flash's origin story and gave Allen his powers.
Credit (or criticism) for The Flash's new costume goes to Colleen Atwood, an Oscar-winning designer who also created Oliver's costume on Arrow. Now, given that Ollie's "mask" was just a really sloppy makeup job for a year and a half before Allen arrived in Starling City and created a form-fitting version, I was a little worried about what we'd get for the Flash. But there's no makeup in sight here, and considering that his headwear could have looked like this guy's, I think Atwood did a pretty awesome job.
