Here's How To Make A Killer Sign For The Taylor Swift Tour

We round up the best posters from the 1989 Tour kick in Louisiana.

Bossier City, Louisiana -- Not only is Taylor Swift's 1989 Tour perfect for screaming, crying and dancing (all of which I did on Wednesday night), but it's also got one standout opportunity: the chance to meet Taylor in person.

During the show, Taylor's mom, Andrea, wanders through the crowd, looking for special Swifties to bring to the special afterparty called Loft89 where they'll get to meet Swift. I'm guessing you have to be super energetic and have a good costume, but I'm not exactly sure what Mama Swift's criteria is. Nevertheless, fans seem to think that making a sign and holding it loudly and proudly is the best way in. I went around and rounded up a few awesome ones:

  1. Put in subliminal Loft89 messages, like Kelly Flores, Jessica Miller and Cayachelyn Collins.
  2. Bright neon is the way to go, according to Rebecca from Texas.
  3. Mandi Payne went all out with this tombstone, reminding us all that we shouldn't be afraid to get a little morbid.
  4. Anything cat themed is acceptable, especially when you dress up like Taylor's cats and work in a Twitter reference, like Kerri Murphy and Alyssa Cox.
  5. Sure, Natalie Vasquez and Kelsey Grizzaffi made a 1989 poster, but their costumes were all the rage. Remember -- mix your sign with equally as awesome attire.
  6. My girls Holly Templeton, Katelyn Crone, Allysa Levans and Autumn King went all Alice in Wonderland. So pick a theme and go with it!

  7. When you don't have poster board, use your arms, like Grace Masters, Molly Masters, Klaire Masters and Johnette Kovac. Also, it's an homage to Tay's arm-writing past.
  8. Blake Butler, Julia Gaston and Audrey Giddens shared this poster, which isn't fancy but still lights up. Hint: lights are all the rage... just bring batteries.
  9. Break out gorgeous paints like Shelby Jones, Madeline Mills, Tanner Wilson and Claire Buffington did.
  10. Let everyone have a part. Valerie Castro and Natasha Escareno showed off their joint signs. Brendan Clifford met them in line outside the show and shared the sign love.
  11. Get punny just like Tiffany Faber and Kyleigh Johnston.
  12. Fit in a song reference, like Brooklyn.
  13. Draw stuff on your caps, like Emerson Heflin and Anna Lokey, who just graduated the weekend before the show.
  14. Patricia and Cody bought each one of those LED lights separately. That's dedication.
  15. James Dean posters will never go out of 'Style' -- just ask Rylie, Katie and Bonnie.
  16. ALL CATS EVERYTHING. Andres nailed it.

  17. Theresa Scott dressed up like Taylor's 'Bad Blood' character, and if that wasn't enough, Aly Campbell and Madison Scott brought posters, too!
  18. Ashley Smith and Alyssa Holmes also took on costumes of Taylor's past, going for her and Jimmy Fallon's pre-teen characters from their "Ew!" skit. Their sign was Taylor's drawing of a pegacorn.
  19. Tyler Greenwood, Abby Reed, Amy Fontenot and Lara Harris went for the straightforward approach.
  20. Ceslie O'Brien and Aimee LaFleur used their posters for well wishes for Andrea Swift.
  21. Little Bella couldn't bring her posters to the floor seats where she was sitting...
  22. But the rest of her crew displayed them proudly for her in the 200s!
  23. If you join forces, like Sarah and Stephen Scales, you just might make it to Loft89.

Hey, it worked for them!
