Wally West / Kid Flash from The Flash

Wally West (played by Keiynan Lonsdale) is the son of Joe West and brother of Iris West-Allen. His mother left Joe and then discovered her pregnancy so Wally did not grow up knowing his father or his sister. He quickly takes a place on Team Flash and becomes Kid Flash as well as The Flash in certain timelines.

When he isn’t saving the world as a speedster he spends his time drag racing and trying to find where he fits in the wider world. He tends to prefer comfortable clothes like jeans, flannel button ups, and t-shirts as well as shoes he can easily drive in. And while his Flash costume is usually yellow, he has been known to wear the iconic red when called on to do so.

Cisco Ramon from The Flash

Cisco Ramon (played by Carlos Valdes) is the sweetheart of Team Flash. He is the one who always holds out hope that things can get better. He also tends to be a little more silly than the rest of the team but don’t let that fool you. He is wildly intelligent and can be a ruthless fighter when called on. This is especially true when he has his meta-human powers and joins the team as the vigilante, Vibe.

Cisco’s day to day clothes tend to be very comfortable and casual. He likes wearing graphic t-shirts and isn’t shy about wearing the S.T.A.R. Labs logo. A button-up flannel and a basic canvas jacket are his go-to layers while study khakis and high tops make up the rest of his outfit.

As Vibe he prefers a more uniform look. He has a special jacket as well as leather pants, dark boots, and goggles with blue lenses. No matter what he’s wearing though he has shoulder-length brown hair that has a lot of natural curve and wave to it.

Iris West Allen from The Flash

Iris West-Allen from The Flash

Iris West-Allen (played by Candice Patton) is the lifelong love of Barry Allen. She takes on several roles over the course of the show but her drive to tell the truth and deliver justice never change. She is often the person coordinating the team – once she becomes involved – and even takes a turn as a hero in an alternate universe.

When cosplaying Iris, class is the name of the game. She is always well put-together and dresses fashionably in silk blouses and fitted slacks or flowing sundresses and matched sweaters. She wears her hair long and usually down with neatly done classic makeup. Iris also has a preference for stiletto high heels no matter whether she’s in slacks and a blouse or a dress.

Clifford DeVoe from The Flash

Clifford DeVoe / The Thinker from The Flash

Clifford DeVoe (played by Neil Sandilands) was a professor and researcher who augmented himself with a device that increased his intelligence. While his intelligence increased, however, his body began to deteriorate. This ultimately put him in a wheelchair which he altered to be a sort of base for his power.

Altering a wheelchair – particularly a power chair as DeVoe uses when he is The Thinker – is a large undertaking. So too is making the specialty headgear that makes up his costume. An easier way to cosplay him is to dress as he did before becoming The Thinker and then use a few costume cybernetic pieces to show DeVoe’s transition into being The Thinker.

The piece pictured above is technically a piece for a Borg costume which means it can be reused in other costumes as well. Otherwise all you need are dress shoes, slacks, a button up, and a tie as well as a wheelchair if you choose to cosplay that point if DeVoe’s development.

Goldface from The Flash

Goldface from The Flash

In CW’s The Flash, Goldface (Damion Poitier) is a more grounded version of the comic book counterpart. While he can still turn any part of his body into organic gold, making him nearly invulnerable, he’s no longer equipped with a golden spacesuit. Instead, he dresses in all black and sporting a massive gold chain necklace that he uses as a weapon on occasion.

Captain Cold

Leonard Snart AKA Captain Cold is a major villain of the DC Universe and an archnemesis to The Flash. He is the leader of the Rogues, a group of villains banded together to defeat Flash. He appears in The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow CW series played by Wentworth Miller.

Reverse Flash/Professor Zoom

Professor Zoom AKA Reverse-Flash is the archenemy of The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The Reverse-Flash was obsessed with The Flash from the 21st-century so, he recreated Barry Allen’s accident to get his same powers. He can travel through time, causing calamity and long-term trauma for Barry Allen.

Killer Frost (Earth Two)

In the parallel timeline dubbed Earth Two from the television show The Flash, Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker), real name Caitlin, was a metahuman villain allied with her husband Deathstorm (Robbie Amell), Reverb (Carlos Valdes), and the evil speedster Zoom (Teddy Sears). Her ability to shoot frozen air out of her palms complemented her lover’s fiery fury. Similar to Earth One’s Killer Frost, she has an affinity for black leather.

The Flash

When it comes to speedy superheroes, Quicksilver I, Quicksilver II, or Dash from the Incredibles may be the first to come to mind nowadays. But with his own television show premiering in 2014 and a movie planned for 2018, The Flash is back to remind you that he’s the original speedster.
