TV Show Flash Costume - Pics


With everything winding down time wise..deadlines fast approaching and people waiting on items themselves for Dragon Con, I was only able to start this 3 days before Dragon Con!!!!

Started with the head sculpt....and ear pieces prodided by Wolf..thanks buddy!

Image
Notice the baggs under my eyes.....:x Again, this was Tuesday.

Wednesday we made the mold and Thurday pulled the headpiece out. It was my first time mixing my Flesh urethane in Red and as you can see...didnt quite get the color right...LOL but it didnt matter because the end result was to be flocked.

Image

Image

Got the chest and legs out of the molds on Thursday also....talk about cutting it tight.
Chest piece with flocking....and boy was it fun to do...the chest is also cast in my Urethane Flesh material with the inner core foam backed.

Image

Lining up the chest emblem...

Image

Shading the chest.....and was that ever cool to do!!!

Image

First Test Fitting...about 9:PM Thrusday night....and I had to be at the airport by 5:AM Friday morning!!!!

Image

...and finally...finished chest piece..

Image

Unfortunately due to the time restraints I had....I didnt take pics of the legs and only got finished pics at Dragaon Con so....here's a few for you!!

Image

Image

Image

It was a rush to the finish....worked on it until 4:45AM then dashed over to the airport to catch my flight!!!!
Should have made the pecks on the neck area a little lower but the life cast I was using was a little misleading...unfortunately but I'm correcting it....improvised the hands and feet but hey....time was running out!!! Had I had even one more day it would have been that much better and more complete.
I learned a lot from making this suit...my very first full urethane skin/cast foam costume. I'm already working on another one...to be much lighter and complete because this time I got sooo close.....but close just isnt good enough. :)
Also...my full size DKR display will have the grey suit fully flocked like the Flash suit was....cant wait to finish that one!!!

Dragon Con was a blast this year and I cant wait to see what we all come up with next year!!!

David

You really pulled that off really "fast" Dave and it turned out excellent. And the flocking was kinda fuzzy texture which was cool! :up

Out of anyone else, I'd doubt a suit that great was made in less than a week but it comes as no surprise from you, David ( nor does the sleep deprivation) The final result is a masterpiece. Just out of curiosity, how did you get the flocking to stick to the Flesh II? Looks great,

David,
I was wondering the same thing Kevin just asked... What was the "flocking" and how did you get it to stick to the suit? Also, painting urethane is a pain in the @#$. What did you use to airbrush the shading?
Can NOT wait to see the DKR full display!!
