10. Taylor Swift “Speak Now” Tour Costume
Anyone that attended the “Speak Now” tour back in 2012 remembers when Taylor would come on stage with her favorite song lyrics scribbled on her arm in sharpie, reaching down to the sparkly 13 on her hand. It became a nightly tradition for Taylor to ask her mom to write a lyric on her left arm and grace the stage. The sharpie lyrics instantly became a swiftie favorite, and fans would recreate it at her concerts for years to come. With so many new spellbinding and alluring lyrics on Midnights, why not use Halloween as a time to bring back some fond memories of dressing up and dancing for all that we’ve been through?

13. Taylor Swift “Shake It Off” Cheerleader Costume
Whether you’re choosing to represent your own cheerleading squad, the Cheerios from Glee, channeling Olivia Rodrigo in “Good 4 U,” or Taylor in the “Shake It Off” video, you can’t go wrong with a cheerleading uniform for Halloween. Especially when you can monogram it with block letters that read TS. Paint your nails your favorite color and pair it with Taylor’s classic red lip as a cute and fun embellishment.
