Lately I've been putting together a gallery of young actresses in costumes at Halloween events. (There are two major Halloween events in Hollywood, the Dream Halloween Benefit and the Ronald McDonald Halloween Carnival, that a lot of big stars attend.) Tonight I compiled some statistics that I'm posting here for my own reference later, and on the off-chance that anyone who reads this blog might be interested.
My gallery currently consists of 130 photos spanning 13 years (1999-2012) of 98 young actresses in 59 costumes. The cut-off age for this gallery is 20.
The actresses have 88 first names among them: Abigail, Adia, Alexa, Alexandria, Ali, Allisyn, Alyvia, Amanda, Amandla, Amber, Ariana, Ariel, Ashley, Audrey, Ava, Bailee, Bailey, Bella, Brittany, Bryce, Camilla, Camryn, Carly, Christine, Dakota, Danielle, Daphne, Darcy, Daveigh, Debby, Drew, Elle, Elise, Emily, Erin, Fivel, Gracie, Haley, Haylie, Jacqueline, Jadin, Jenna, Jennifer, Joey, Jolie, Kailey, Katherine, Kathryn, Kay, Keana, Kerris, Kiernan, Lauren, Lexi, Lia, Lucy, Mackenzie, Madeline, Madison, Mae, Malyssa, Mary, Meredith, Michelle, Miley, Miranda, Natalie, Nicola, Olivia, Paris, Peyton, Rachael, Rachel, Raini, Raven, Rebecca, Roxy, Ryan, Saige, Sammi, Savannah, Shelbie, Sierra, Taylor, Teala, Temara, Willow, and Zendaya.
