Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, Says Alexandra Law

In efforts to showcase the design sensibilities of young aspiring superheroes, artist Alexandria Law created Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, an art project wherein superheroes are illustrated and redesigned based on superheroic costumes worn by young girls. Law’s project features submitted photos of little girls donning costumes based off of both licensed superheroes and original characters alongside illustrated interpretations of the look “in action,” providing a fresh look on heroic aesthetics. From an incredibly wearable Wonder Woman dress with killer boots to chic, simplified adjustments to Power Girl and Huntress, these little heroines manage to embody the spirit of their idols while adding inventive style and flair; a skill that many comic professionals still struggle to master.

While it’s no secret that I’m a sucker for cute and stylish redesigns, the special thing about Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You is that it explicitly showcases an enthusiastic demographic that is undoubtedly overlooked by cape comics publishers and fans: little girls who like superheroes so much that they want to be them, whether it means adjusting a faulty heroic look to better fit their styling preferences or creating an original character altogether. While the concept of playing dress-up is nothing new, Law’s project shows us the potential of an inventive fanbase that would respond well to superheroes marketed toward both young boys and girls.
