I am a big fan of Andy Fairhurst's DeviantArtwork for kid superheroes. I cannot speak for his intentions when he made these, but I like to think these are all children wearing home-made costumes of their favorite superheroes. Here is a link to more of his artwork, which also includes children dressed as the Flash, Robin, Iron Man, Wolverine, Wonder Woman, and Joker and Harley Quinn.
My favorite of this line is this piece he made of a kid dressed as Spiderman. I love that the child is looking up the chains of the swingset to a spider web. According to his page, Andy Fairhurst says the child is looking at a fly. I never noticed the fly until he pointed it out. I'd prefer to think that he is looking at the web and perhaps the sky beyond it. The child is thinking of what he could be. This is a very innocent, romanticized view of Spiderman, for sure, but that is a good thing.
For all the little and big kids dreaming of more, I hope you continue to dream big and that you have a happy Halloween!
