Flash! A-ahh! by kingandy Flash! A-ahh! by kingandy
Okay, SO, I saw the latest DC Cinematic Flash uniform, and boy, it's not my thing at all, all panels and segments and bits and bobs. Very busy. And, yeah, I get that that's kind of the point on a big screen outfit, it's going to be blown up huge so they've got to put a lot of detail on it. Texture, you know.

But the problem with these things is that they look like something a movie costume designer made up. Not a scientist, or a runner. So I figured, as neither a scientist nor a runner, I would have a crack at designing something that looks like a real wearable garment, that might be worn by a dude who runs fast for fighting crime.

The thing about running outfits, though, is they're basically the skintight spandex - or whatever equivalent modern fabric is used in these breathable-stretchable things - with detailing added only out of aesthetic, not necessity. So it basically ended up as the classic seamless onesie of the Silver Age, albeit with a slightly more practical headpiece and some extra yellow piping.

Oh well.
