Las Vegas Magazine Outtakes | March 13, 2014 Issue

If you happen to see a copy of Weekly sister-pub Las Vegas Magazine floating around this week, be sure to give it a look. Inside you’ll find a photo spread of local kids from the Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevada channeling the Strip’s top entertainers as children. Directed by Las Vegas Magazine Art Director Wesley Gatbonton and shot by Christopher DeVargas, the images show the kids banging on paint-covered buckets Blue Man-style, channeling Criss Angel’s bad-boy attitude and striking a pose with the Jabbawockeez. “The more we worked with the kids the more the project grew into something bigger than what we’d imagined,” Gatbonton said. “If everyone could just pitch in and hang out for a day [at the Boys & Girls Club], it would make such a difference in kids’ lives.”
