CW and DC Comics have revealed part of the Flash’s costume for the upcoming The Flash TV Show that will be airing on the CW this fall.

Based on the head of the costume we can see that the iconic lighting bolt is going to be a part of the costume, just not as high.  It looks like they went with a darker red color instead of fire engine red.  The mask coverage seems to cover the exact same areas as the New 52 costume.  In the show, the costume looks like it will be made of leather.

The costume was designed by three time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood who also designs the costumes for Arrow.

I like the direction of the show costume or at least what I can see from the top part of it.  It looks like they are trying to stick to the original costume as close as possible while still trying to modernize it.  I like the lower lighting bolts because its more subdued but also because I can’t help but think those high ones are going to get caught on something.  I am a huge fan of the darker red color because the fire engine red was just too bright.  I like the fact that they choose the leather look because it just feels like it will fit the look they have with Arrow, I can only guess they are going with a similar look for the Flash’s show.

Are you excited with the how the costume looks?
