make a variable equal the persons choice, not sure just guessing.
and then use that varible in the rest of the game

I am working on a game with a similar requirement. Basically when the user goes through and chooses the different components of the character you set a variable for which one is chosen. Then you have a movie clip that is the character that has all possible options for the different pieces that make up the character. Then you just tell each clip what label it needs to be on.

If you want to store the infor for later plays you can even store the "DNA" in a cookie and parse the cookie in flash.

Just a few thoughts.
