A few weeks ago, The CW released the first image of Grant Gustin in costume for its highly anticipated in-the-works Arrow spin-off pilot, The Flash. It featured a smiling Gustin, but only showed the head of his suit. At the time, many of you said you'd reserve judgement until you saw the full outfit, so I hope you've done your judging stretches and worked those finger muscles, because we now have the first full image of Grant Gustin as Barry Allen as the Flash:
As Arrow fans already know, the potential series centers on Gustin's 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 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.
The Flash's new look was created by Colleen Atwood, an Oscar-winning costume designer who also did Oliver's costume on Arrow. What do you think of the full suit? Is it practical? Does it come with built-in fans to keep the Flash cool when he super-speeds all over the place? But more importantly, does it look like it rides up?
