Buffy Boys

May 8, 2019

It's 'Revenge of the Living Cosplayers' for the Buffy Boys in S02E07 'Lie to Me' as an old schoolyard crush from Buffy's LA days arrives in town with a half-baked cult of vampire groupies, six months to live, and a plan. Can too much LARPing kill you? Yes.

Key Buffy Bits from this episode include: 

  • Meeting imitation with interior life in reconstructing a post-Anne Rice vampire
  • Nitro-burning funny cars
  • Nursery rhymes and scary stories as a rubric to strip back the shell of childhood
  • "Wine" shirts - functional and fashionable
  • Manicheism and the erosion of binaries in the Slayer's Journey
  • "Uh, very good, yes. Uh, um, Buffy... Excuse me. You are not, by any chance, betraying your secret identity just to impress, um, cute boys, are you?"
