The ‘We’en Issue


Jeremy Bourque—looking badass in his 1986 human fly costume—is the star of our cover this week. To this day, both his mom and dad—Lynn and Bruce—are proud of the costume, which they completed sometime between 4 and 5 am on the big day.

The wings, constructed by Bruce, were made out of coat hanger wire covered in sheer curtains and finished with magic marker.

Finally, the whole thing was covered in brown material to match the body of the costume, which was made by Lynn.

Cover design by Elling Lien.
