The Flash :D!

I like the mask, especially how it works in the lightning bolts on the ears, and I really can't wait to see the full costume. My biggest fears is that it will look more like "The Blur" from Smallville than what I'd expect from a Flash suit, but I'll remain optimistic for when we see a full picture of it :).

I'm happy to see them going with an actual costume and not just a T-shirt and jeans. Flash is a pretty flamboyant look, but the mask at least seems like a good modern translation of the classic suit.

I'm glad they stick to their guns when they said that Flash was getting his traditional costume. it would have been too easy to go the Smallville approach. Given Barry's character so far it actually makes sense that he would go for this type of costume. He's kind of a geek in this universe.

Love it so far. You can definitely tell it was made by the same costume designer who worked on the Arrow costumes. It's all very cohesive. Can't wait to see the rest of the suit.

When I first saw the image I was very pleased. After falling away last season, I made sure to watch Arrow this season because I wanted to see Grant Gustin as Barry Allen and become The Flash. This is a good sign. :D

The chin strap looks fine. Honestly, cowls rarely work in real life outside of drawings and cartoons, so the strap is sort of needed. that's why Captain America has one too.

The shared live action DC universe has a promising future, on television ONLY! (in response to post below, that was once above this post. Although, that comment can be applied to when Barry first appeared on that Arrow episode. That comment can even be applied to a handful of Arrow moments before Barry first appeared).

It's certainly not as bad as it could have been, and I can see it growing on me. Honestly though, I'll have to actually see it in motion before I really make a judgement on the suit.

If I have any complaints, it's that I think the suit could use just a little more yellow :shrug:.

Still, I respect and appreciate that the crew for Flash went for a full-on costume :).

Looks like College Humor predicted the future again. Now we're getting a live-action Dora The Explorer movie. What a twist.
Just saw the Dora trailer. Now I can't wait for the gritty Blue's Clues crime drama.
