This Is What Spending Halloween With Taylor Swift Looks Like

? ? ? ? ? ☠ ⚰ ?

Tampa, Florida -- I stuffed cat ears and a tail into my bag and ran out the door. In the end, that's all my costume for the 1989 Tour consisted of. But once I got on the ground in Tampa, I realized I was severely underdressed.

You see, this is the 1989 Tour, where fans travel from all over -- I met someone from Brazil! -- just to see Taylor Swift. This isn't your casual party. It's a spectacle. People rig themselves with lights, sacrifice their money for cute costumes, and dye their hair weird colors.

And since the last U.S. stop on the 1989 Tour just so happened to fall on Halloween, all of the usual outfits were amplified by a million. Out of the three 1989 dates I've been to, Tampa was by far the best dressed. One moment I was looking at unicorn onesies and another moment I was looking at zombies dripping with blood.

As for Taylor herself, she took the stage as Olaf from "Frozen" just before Idina Menzel duetted "Let It Go" with her. Around the stadium, Taylor's mom Andrea dressed as Cruella de Vil while her dad went as Superman.

I'm still pondering about how well my Zombie Katy Perry costume would've went over, but I met so many cool Swifties on Saturday night. Check it out:

Hey, it's Halloween. Might as well go to the concert as pumpkins.

So much going on here, but I'd like to point out the "Blank Space" duo -- the girl with the apple and dude who gets tortured by her.
