A Hero's Triumph
Produced by: Christopher Williamson
Coaches: Lauren SteelKeith JenkinsDoug DuBois
For Christina Lavinski, a costume is more than just clothing. Although the motivation for costume play, or “cosplay,” differs from person to person, Christina dresses up as Supergirl and Power Girl to overcome her own personal supervillain — anxiety. Since first discovering her form of self-therapy five years ago, she relishes transforming from everyday woman to iconic hero. Although her anxiety continues to haunt her, Christina hopes her boots and cape keep her inner demon at bay.
