    there are 3 zombie costumes, 9 super-hero costumes, and 4 science fiction costumes, so there are 3*9*4 possible ways to pick one of each

    what if there are an unlimited number of costumes? @Vocaloid would that change the answer?

    hm...the way that question is worded is a bit vague, I'm not quite sure what the answer would be

    I don't think the answer would change, since they're still only picking one of each costume
