Hollow Bones

As pretty as the aesthetic is, I don't really think someone vaguely human could ever fly by the power of their own wings.  Birds have hollow bones and minimal weight distributed about their tiny bodies.  Our size would require not only an enormous wingspan, but really excessive musculature across the back.  I don't know where I'm going with this.  Bummer though.
