Urancia said she felt lucky to own the Firefly costume, which was a lot looser than some of the other outfits this season. “At least I can move,” she said, “but I wasn’t used to carrying the weight of the costume on me during a performance.” “It took some practice to get used to carrying all of that while focusing on keeping my singing as powerful as possible. Wearing the mask made it hard to catch my breath a little, but because I had a pack in my ear, at least I could hear myself decently.”
