It's not just adult fans that like to dress up as their favorite characters when visiting comic book and Sci-Fi conventions anymore. Every year more and more kids are getting in on the act and whether they're cosplaying as a princess, superhero or ninja, these junior performers exhibit as much dedication and passion as their older counterparts and continue to show that it’s never too early to follow your dreams and be the hero you always wanted to be.

This year’s Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Melbourne, Australia saw an impressive number of children take the leap into cosplaying, many for the first time. Here are some of the best from the popular annual event.

One of the most family friendly shows on TV right now is Once Upon A Time which features numerous fairy tale characters thrust into our modern world and forced to deal with villains and mysteries while remembering what's most important, family.

The variety of characters on the fantasy hit TV show make for great inspiration for group and family cosplays as seen here with two young girls playing Anna and Elsa (also seen in the popular movie Frozen), a teenage girl playing the teenage Emma Swan (and really looking the part!) and the two lovely ladies as Regina (the evil queen) and Snow White.

The great thing about cosplaying is that it allows fans to be as creative as they want with their favorite characters customize it to their own tastes as we can see with this unique take on a pink Batgirl! Fantastic idea!
