    Jul 6, 2009, 4:54 PM - The Flash TV show Suit #1

    My son and I have been watching the Flash online
    Watch Videos Online | The Flash | Veoh.com

    I always liked the execution of the suit on this show but wondered what details were out there on it. I heard it was made by Stan Winston Studios but that was about it. Does anyone know anything about it or details on the show?

    Thanks,

    Someone here owns (or used to) one of the screen used suits, though I can't remember for the life of me who it was. From what I remember it was a latex muscle suit with red flocking (so it had a matte finish against the lights).

    I believe the tv costume was designed and created by Robert Short. At least thats my memory of the series end credits every week.

    I remember being a big fan of this suit when I was younger. Rewatching, I can see some flaws, but it's still a nice looking costume. The gold in place of the yellow works well.

    Wasn't there something weird about the flocking that (unintentionally) made the suit photograph better at night? I think I remember reading that somewhere...

    That was a great suit.
    Actually I have always felt it was the most realistic in terms of both appearance on-screen and in the comic book of any real-word superhero costume . It was just perfect to me.
    I have been hoping to get a Flash Cowl that looks like that one for years.

    I could never get into the show because I watched Dawson's Creek first. The Flash was Dawson's dad on the show.

    Great costume though.

    Heh, I was the other way around. The first time I ever saw Dawson's dad, I was like: "That's the Flash."

    Me too! I never got into that show, but (to go on a brief tangent that includes a Dawson's Creek spoiler -- I can't believe I just wrote that) I did randomly catch what I later learned was his character's death scene while flipping through the channels one night and it is quite possibly the greatest in television history. Truly.

    If you haven't seen it before, please do yourself a favor and watch it now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQv-0Ojn73w

    Cool! I did computer animation for that show in the first season (Mike Okuda did the pilot episode) but I have never seen most of it. Thanks for the link!

    IIRC the flocking prevent the suite from washing and it had built in muscle suit. It was deteriorated over the year and is in bad shape - I just don't remember which website that was...

    I've actually only seen the pilot, which to me as a kid was the Flash Movie. For years i had no idea there was a whole series after that. It inspired much running around the living room in a red leotard and tights and a red ski mask(modified by my mom to look more Flashy; that ski mask was the **** back then). i even wore it to a school halloween carnival once(they called it "fall festival," but it was Halloween). this was of course years before any Flash costume in the halloween isle at walmart.

    I believe Mark Hamill indeed played the Jester in one of the episodes.

    I just recently watched the show for the first time and was pleasantly surprised to see him in that role. The show was cheesy as all get-out, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I would love to see someone do the suit, or any info and any suits that have been done before.

    Mark Hamill played the Trickster, which more than likely was the basis of his villain in Jay and Bob Strike back.
    I recall a TV guide article that stated that the suit was incredibly expensive to make; granted it's an article so probably mixed a dozen sentences into one but stated that the suit cost $25,000 to create.
    It was an amazing suit, and unlike many other hero costumes granted no leeway to the slightly...let's say extra male body

    I also loved this show and as another member said before me, for a long time I only knew about the full-length pilot episode which I always thought was The Flash (the movie), and that's it! I don't think I have ever seen the tv series... only the pilot.
    However the costume was great. I completely forgot about it but when I was a kid I tried hard to find a costume like it... failing miserably so I gave up
    ...but I still love running
