"The Flash" might be on a week-long hiatus due to the US elections, but that hasn't stopped the fine folks at The CW from giving fans of the Scarlet Speedster a little behind-the-scenes content to tide them over until the next new episode.
The video focuses on the work of Maya Mani, the show's costume designer, and provides viewers with more of a 'behind-the-seams' look at the creative process that went into our heroes' costumes.
While Mani goes into detail on her work with Grant Gustin's Flash costume and the molten lava concept behind Todd Lasagne's Rival outfit, attentive viewers will notice close-ups on new costumes for Carlos Valdes' Vibe and Danielle Panabaker's Killer Frost. Check for them at around the 2 minute 37 second mark on the video.
That the costumes look as great up close as the do on the screen is a testament to the immense amount of work of Mani and her team put in. It can take anywhere from eight days to three weeks to design and produce each individual costume, and -- as Mani herself reveals -- "this season there's lots of superhero goodness coming at you. Lots of it."
Starring Grant Gustin as the Scarlet Speedster, “The Flash” airs Tuesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW. The series also stars Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Carlos Valdes, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker and Keiynan Lonsdale.
