    I found a cosplay suit from the the cw flash series off of a site called etsy.and it looks good. I was thinking that maybe some tips or photos of someone owning a cosplay flash suit would help.

    I just received my first parcel with includeds the shoes and the cowl. The other package will arrive this Friday, apparently it arrive early than I expected. The material for the shoe apparently is quite good and I expect the colour to be off but it's quite good and darkish red. I wasn't planning on using the cowl, order rocketeer accurate flash cowl just waiting for them. the cowl is decent but is better than the others I saw so far. Can't wait for the suit to arrive everything looking good so far.

    Everything you've got so far looks pretty good - even the cowl.

    I agree with jrenemtz321. The cowl obviously doesn't come close to TheRocketeer's work, but as part of the "whole package" that cowl could have looked a LOT worse. And the boots look good! I'd probably do something different with the gold accents, but the red part doesn't look like it needs much work!

    If I had to guess, that cowl is made after the leather one they use in the show for scenes where Barry has taken his mask off. It isn't meant to be worn like the foam rubber mask they use, just hang off like a hoodie.

    Here is a good shot of what I'm talking about.

    What kind of fabric is used for the non-leather/pleather sections?

    Yeah it would probably be a good hoodie for the costume. I have to cut the chin piece and change the ear piece but otherwise it's good. I wait for the full suit and the other cowl before I start on this
    If not mistaken its Polyester or Nylon, will post the a detail close up of the suit when it arrive this week or next.

    So guys i just received my suit and pants today. Here's a preview of them, the pants fit nicely i had personally for a costume size. The pants and jacket turn out pretty good, i am happy with how it looked. Just need to change up the gold and fix the logo and stuff. The logo is magnet which is pretty cool and the suit is made up of leather and not sure whats the other material. So what do you guys think about the suit? Definitely i think this is one of the good one out there. If you have any question about the suit and wanna see more photos just pm me. Probably gonna make some changes to the cowl and make it into a hoodie, the only thing left is waiting for Rocketeer to finish making the flash cowl and i be good to go. :D

    Not gonna lie, I didn't expect something like that off etsy to be particularly good, but that looks pretty perfect. Once the cowl is replaced you will become not only the fastest man alive but the one I'm the most jealous of!

    Got it from another website but yeah i didn't expect a chinese supplier to pull off this quality. It's based on the first suit design, there been some changes on the suit i be explaining on the my own thread. Thanks i am also super excited for the cowl to come. :D

    I saw your suit i think it's the same as mine maybe the gloves are different. Too bad your logo fell off but definitely worth the experience skydiving. Hope to see your costume and cowl finish. Good luck with it!

    YuZheng, was curious which company you purchased from on aliexpress? I saw a few different ones selling it using the same photos and also saw one that was made slightly different.

    http://www.aliexpress.com/item/The-Flash-cosplay-costume-halloween-claret-leather/32253925631.html This is the actual seller i choose her because she was the only one who actually made the trouble to sent me the photo of the suit that isnt the promo which everyone uses the same.

    Yeah we have the same gloves, I just have another costume and not only did I like these gloves better but my hands are huge and the gloves from this suit look way too small.

    I'm not too worried about losing the emblem...1) Now it is a part of that airfield and/or someone will find it and wonder, 2) I plan on replacing it anyway, and 3) I have a spare.

    I'm also anxiously awaiting TheRocketeer's Flash 2.0 cowl as I ruined the first one he sent me. I'm also modifying the decent cowl they sent us to work as a hood and be the cowl off look. I was looking into velcro and now I'm thinking snaps.

    I dig the shoes that they sent but I wish they were more like sneakers and less like boots. In any case I prefer to rock my wings anyway.

    Keep us updated on the changes you make.

    Haha we are probably almost on the same boat. I plan on also making the cowl to a hoodie but just waiting for the 2.0 Cowl to arrive. yeah i could see why you could't fit the glove my hands are small and they just fit nicely. How did you broke the first cowl Rocketeer sent to you? Anyways sure thing i keep you updated on the change on my thread, keep me updated on yours too. Cheers! :cheers

    i was thinking that if I got the suit . I would paint the inner emblem white since the future flash in the series has a white symbol. 0ed3d4f0-6153-0132-42d5-0ebc4eccb42f.jpg

    Just randomly noticed. It says Wayne Tech and Queen Inc merged on the bottom left. Are they going to introduce Bruce Wayne or crossover with Gotham eventually? Or is this just a cool easter egg?

    Is that a different suit than what you got? It looks like the chest leather area has an accurate V2 rounder shape but yours looks like the stock photos?

    chest.jpg

    and it has the V2 thumb holes in the sleeve when yours doesn't?

    hands.jpg

    Please tell me if I'm wrong. I'm trying to find an accurate V2 suit with the thumb holes in the sleeve, rounder chest area, red gloves and everything.

    gloves.jpg

    Gonna upgrade he chest emblem and cowl, of course.

    Also, do you have a picture of the back of your jacket? The stock photos everywhere show the jersey material only on the left side and the pleather material is in the middle and right side

    I just checked mine is basicly almost like the stock photo i am planning to buy some vinyl material to make the thumb holes and fix the back and the back arms. this design was mainly followed the v1 of the suit. it's not accurate to the v2 you definitely need to make some changes.

    Yeah. I guess they sent you a picture of a different suit with that green background? That would be a bummer.

    And yeah I'm planning on getting this as well and modifying/improving it somehow. Maybe they can even make the belt without the bolts, so I can put 3D printed ones on instead haha

    But the main issue I have is the back. Everything is pretty accurate to the V1 suit but that back mess up is just annoying me haha I had to make a photoshop of what it should look like

    Awesome.

    Did she say the changes can be made?

    I got one seller on Ebay who said they can take the bolts off the belt (I want to put 3d printed ones on) and they can take the magnets in the chest out but all the other stuff would be hard to do.

    And every other seller just said no changes can be made whatsoever because it is a mass produced item from a different manufacturer. They are simply reselling

    Looks like the back can be fixed and possibly the thumb loop.

    Very cool. If the back can be fixed, I don't see why the front's chest should be a problem :lol

    Then, I'm sure people could find red gloves if they don't want to do those too

    Cool. I made a clearer picture for a side by side comparison.

    What changes exactly are an OK? The lower back pleather and thumb holes in sleeves?

    There is also the gloves color, the chest pleather and the back of the arms that I forgot to mention before.

    They should also have pleather on the back of the arms, above the elbow to tricep area

    and what about the belt area with no lightning bolts? Want to add 3D printed plastic ones later.

    Haha sorry for so many details

    So far so good. All changes have been approved by the designers.

    I've not asked about the elbow parts yet.

    I'll be putting my order in this week so only time will tell if they keep to the amendments.

    Talking to her now.

    The suit comes to $256 + $40 for the changes to the suit (more material)

    I nearly crapped myself when she mistakenly put $130 for changes lol.

    I'll be placing my order today.

    As YuZheng said on the last page google search Angelia Ji's Store No.437969

    That should do it

    They have told me just now I should have it in a month. So expect updates first week of July!
    They also said they are the factory and designers making the costumes everyone else is selling.

    It'd be nice to run into the future right about now.

    I think I might purchase one myself from Etsy, but I'll be screen printing my own texture with high density inks.

    Yup, I too, got a message an hour ago saying it shipped. That was fast. About a week to make all the changes? Hmmm. I asked them to pay with Paypal so I can always open a case for an item that's, not as it was described but I have hope they made all the changes.

    Update: I asked and they said they did make all the changes so here's hoping
