You can’t have “The Flash” without Barry Allen’s crazy costume. But it wasn’t just about putting on the suit and running for the upcoming “Arrow” spinoff’s star, Grant Gustin. Instead, as you can see in this exclusive video from Tuesday’s “DC All Access” web series, the suit took awhile to come together.

For something as skintight as a superhero costume, it makes sense that costumers didn’t just sew it and then hand over a finished project to Gustin. But five fittings! That really doesn’t sound like a lot of fun.

At least the end result is the rather cool Flash suit that Barry Allen will wear when “The Flash” premieres in the fall of 2014. Need more “Flash” sooner than that? This episode of “DC All Access” will premiere online Tuesday, June 3.
