Costumes of Choice
From here on out it will be third person.
“Explain to me again what Snyder wanted.” Xander said exasperated. He was looking at the selection of costumes.
“He wanted us to dress up as heroes.” Buffy said as put down a dress that if Snyder hadn’t been specific about what they had to wear, she probably would have worn.
“I’ll check the junk bin. Sometimes they make a costume and have a mistake in the design.” Xander trotted over to the bin. ‘Let’s see a Batgirl costume with no visible holes, different design then the one Gordon wore before she was shot. A Shocker costume with an Avengers symbol on the belt, like that would ever happen.’ He mused.
“Found anything?” Buffy asked.
“Two costumes. One that is as unlikely as hell and the other is just a costume redesign.” Xander pointed to the two costumes in question.
“Batgirl, what’s so good about her?” Buffy asked.
“No idea, but I plan on shocking the hell out of Snyder.” Xander chuckled.
“Fine, but I don’t like having to go out as a wimp.” Buffy grumbled.
“What makes her a wimp?” Xander asked.
“I heard she got shot. If she was any good she wouldn’t have been shot.” Buffy growled.
“Surprise attack at her home while out of costume. Also the shock of seeing Joker gave him the time to take the shot.” Xander rebutted. He had read the graphic novel in question. It was easy to just hear Gordon had been shot without a fight and assume she was a wimp.
“I’ll give you that.” Buffy nodded. She did not know how it had played out in the comics, but she did know that Batgirl was shot.
“Willow what you got?” Xander asked.
“A cloak.” Willow replied.
“Don’t demon out me during Halloween.” Xander chuckled knowing the only hero who wore a cloak and was female.
Ethan chuckled the three costumes he had just sold would certainly create chaos. The fact that another costume he had sold had been from the same bin would also add to the chaos.
