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.
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 thisIf 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.
If not mistaken its Polyester or Nylon, will post the a detail close up of the suit when it arrive this week or next.What kind of fabric is used for the non-leather/pleather sections?
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.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!
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!
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.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.
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! :cheersYeah 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.
