can u imagine a fucking literal spandex flash suit it would look ridiculous it would look terrible. i would laugh forever but there u go. (like the tv version isn’t fantastic but heckie it aint bad)
It would not work well easily. Yeah, cosplayers can pull it off for photo-shoots with folk mostly in like-wear doing still or limited motion shots in very different lighting and production methods, but on TV show cameras surrounded by folk in regular clothes? Tricky. Very tricky. Then you’ve got audience appeal. They’re trying to appeal to the same demographic that watches Arrow, Agents of SHIELD, the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A plain spandex suit is not gonna cut it.Then you’ve got a notorious difficulty with a lot of bright red on broadcast television. It makes The Flash a really hard costume to adapt.
I went in —between Smallville and the 90s TV show— with low expectations truth be told. Maybe this suit could be better, but it isn’t bad, it is definitely a superhero suit, and I really do like a couple of the details a hell of a lot. I’m good.
Oh my that’s great in movement!
LOOK AT THIS FABULOUS ABSURD THING. I love it.
goddamn it can we please start an editing meme
he looks like hes riding a skateboard what a nerd
Remind me this weekend if someone hasn’t already done it and I will try to cut him out for meme-age.
I’m fine with the New 52 influence tho since I feel it helps. The chinguard helps since cowls tend not to work well/look very good in real life. It’s why the two good Captain America costumes added them and the one that didn’t looked goofy as hell.
Completely agreed! I think I know a cosplayer or two who can vouch how hard it is to make chin-strap-less cowls stay in place and look good. It functions. And I think the lines and seams help the suit look less awkward and bodystocking-y for a TV show.
I just see too much New52 in the design. And I want brighter red. I’m glad you’re hyped. But I’m just not feeling it. (Also Wally>Barry ;P)
A not unreasonable complaint. I actually don’t hate the nu52 Flash costume though, so that helps. I get the red not being brighter due to color saturation issues on TV broadcasts. A bit disappointing, but not something I’m going to be hung up on. I’m more concerned about in-show/post-production lighting making it much darker than it is now.
I do like Wally better then Barry generally, but I’m embracing what I can actually get. Also, my co-workers at lunch talk to me about this because they know I’m following it (I have a dozen different Flash figures at my desk) and they keep saying how they would have preferred the joking womanizing Flash (like the cartoon) and I’m sort of half glad it isn’t Wally because with bad writers we might end up with an obnoxious misogynistic dudebro take on him — which is not Wally and not what I want to be the current mainstream media perception of Flash. So thank my younger coworkers for selling me on it being Barry instead of Wally.
No More Heroes in Hoodies 2014
If you’re going to make a superhero show you own that shit or you step the fuck outta the genre. Ain’t nobody here for your weak superheroes in civvies game.
in a flurry of pre-con prep, trying to get the final final version of staff room assignments done and I lose my pencil. Only…not. Because it somehow ended up in my cleavage. :\
Oh Marielle. Of course it ended up there.
Now back to prep. Henrietta’s gonna get you if you don’t fill out that paperwork.
