    They call her wearing full cowl Dominoed Daredoll. So I'm calling that a domino too.

    I don't know the name of that kind of mask.
    By the way, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition for "domino" includes
    1
    a
    (1): a long loose hooded cloak usually worn with a half mask as a masquerade costume
    (2): a half mask worn over the eyes with a masquerade costume

    b: a person wearing a domino
    And in terms of women wearing domino masks, there was a 1930s pulp magazine character named Domino Lady:

    The hooded cloak one is like a pop culture fantasy assassin or, well, Green Arrow right

    It's such a shame Babs as Batgirl has no cowl anymore. That look was the definitive Batgirl look for her.
    Im not a fan of Batgirl in these dominoed masks just look silly in my opinion.
    I always hated that the Batman and Robin movie made Batgirl/Alicia Silverstone wear a dominoed mask. It drove me mad because when she wore the cowl on the MotorBike scene she looks amazing.

    Yeah, her costume during Gail Simone run was her best look of all time imo.

    So Betty and Kathy were still canon early on, then they're erased by... Zero Hour?

    Betty had her history altered so she was never Bat-Girl, and was called Flamebird instead. For some reason her civilian name was changed slightly to Bette. She wasn't erased, just changed. Kathy was indeed originally retconned away. Kate Kane was meant to be her modern counterpart, but then Grant Morrison brought Kathy back a couple of years later.

    The solicitations for Future State Nightwing #2 mentioned that he receive help from two Batgirls, Huntress, and Two-Face.

    I guess Barbara is one of the two Batgirls. We don't know who is the other, although the solicitations could be misleading (we didn't know Barbara was still Batgirl at that time) and we have three Batgirls.
    Batgirls established that Steph was already working for Dick, but went undercover as a villain, then ended up in jail. So it depends if that's set before or after Nightwing. If it's before, Steph would already be in deep cover, so it couldn't be her. Cass only got herself arrested after Babs was captured, and in that case it can't have happened yet. If it's set after Batgirls, then Babs has already been rescued and both of the other Batgirls would also be free to help out.

    Yeh her costume from Gails run was perfect. It looked amazing, it was covered in armor to protect her and her spine. The cowl covered her head for more protection and it helped hide her identity better.
    It was just beatiful!

    And then when Burnside started, they had all her gear including the costume destroyed in a fire. Which was dumb. Surely you don't keep everything in one place? Especially not a van, which could've been stolen (which would've been worse than a fire since that would've meant gear falling into the wrong hands). She should've kept her stuff at home.

    Yeah, for a modern costume it made a lot of sense. I'd have maybe streamlined it a little, like the Three Jokers costume, but otherwise it looks good.

    Yeah, I feel like they streamlined that and the armor a little, it'd be perfect.

    But I always hated the tops of the boots . . . it seemed a bit overkill for the Bat-motif.

    I have to wonder. Could Dc ever and not in the main cannon. Could Dc ever make the Congresswoman thing interesting? I mean what job career would even work for Babs? I know librarian career was her main one for a while
