Okay, so this is the bit where I explain everything about how I made my costume and what it is..
My costume planning started as soon as I got my tickets as I’m sure many people’s do! But this will only be my third concert ever and I have never gone all out. In the past I have only made shirts and although those are fun I wanted to do something special. My cousin (who I am planning on going with if she can get the day job) and I exchanged ideas for a few hours until finally she came up with the idea of a long list of ex-lovers. And though that could be a cool idea I didn’t quite feel comfortable doing that and wanted something different. So eventually I decided to do a long list of Taylor lovers and gather a whole bunch of you guys to give me your names and I put them on my costume.. I received 102 names which is wonderific and worked out into equal numbers of 17..:D We had originally planned on making white skirts with red lettering but I was talking to mnmegg (Who has been a legit angel by helping me and answering questions and just being taymazing per usual..) and she thought it would be cool to make a black skirt with the alternating panels of solid-fabric and see-through fabric like my cousin and I had talked about before and use glow in the dark puff-paint to write out the names. So one Saturday night my mom bought me to JoAnn Fabrics and we bought fabric and puff-paint and thread and all of our other materials (which she kindly paid for so thank you.. also thank you to her for letting me take over her dining room table for four days and letting me make my mess..). Sunday morning I started by pattern making and then tracing and pinning and sewing and making the whole skirt took almost all Sunday! Then Sunday night I started writing out names in white charcoal and then tracing over them with puff-paint. It took 3 days for me to do all 3 panels on the skirt and to let them dry. I wasn’t originally planning on making a poster but sleep-deprived me thought I had 6 solid panels of fabric on the skirt and not three. And the puff paint didn’t like the see-through stuff so off supply buying I went.. But it was okay because I needed more lights anyway. Although glow in the dark puff-paint will glow, it is only for a little bit and doesn’t last very long and I wanted to be lit up! I bought poster board and lights yesterday and last night I finished puff-painting my skirt and then did what you see on my poster plus one line of names..
At parties like these in the women’s bathrooms, they just keep really nice mascaras, and makeups, and hairsprays–little sample size ones–for free. But they’re all really rich celebrities so nobody takes them. So I saw them all, and I was, like, grabbing them like that. But a beautiful, very famous model whose name I won’t use, was touching up her makeup. So I was just waiting there, like, “When will this model leave so I can just fill my clutch with these free mascaras?”
Okay.. I’m actually crying (and blank-space-swiftie is laughing at me..).. All that has happened this summer has finally sunk in as I am here making my costume. Thanks to madi2100 I worked up the courage to ask my dad if he could buy me Taylor tickets and I could pay him back.. He agreed.. But he didn’t let me pay for them. Said it was a reward for being a good student and I cried then too, but I never really sunk in that I was seeing Taylor, I just was.. But here sitting making my costume writing the names of people who have affected my life in such a positive way I am overwhelmed with such love and excitement. I get to see Taylor. But honestly the best part that is making me so happy are the friends I have made on here who I know will always be there for me and encourage me and support me and love me for who I am.. There are so many of you guys and know that I am so so so thankful to have you and I love you all very much and you are absolutely WONDERIFIC and TAYMAZING and I couldn’t imagine my life without you at all. You make me smile and cry and laugh and I love it. You are always here for me and I would like you to know that it goes both ways. I am here whenever you need me. mnmeggmadi2100cats-and-wildest-dreamsbakingcookieswithtaylortayloralisonswiftsupporterswizzyizzyblank-space-swiftie and so many more of you.. I love you all. And you have made my experience on here so beautiful and are all so kind and thank you so much for that! I would also like to thank everyone who I might not talk to on a regular basis or talk to at all.. I love you too. And please talk to me! I love new friends so so so much so don’t be afraid! Thank you for following me and making my like wonderific! And to Taylor.. Thank you to providing us all with such beautiful music and soundtracks to our lives.. You give me something to look foreword to each day whether it be just hearing your music on my phone or the radio, going to a concert, or making costumes or watching an award show among so many other things. You make me so happy and because of you I have made all of these friends and I can never ever repay you for that! And thank you for taking your time to press the follow button.. You didn’t have to and I never expected it but it was such an added benefit to my already wonderful experience on here.. And I love you taylorswift. I will see you September 13th in Minnesota and I CANT WAIT! I already know it will be one of the best days of my life!❤️

The abandoned Great Mine in Onu-Koro - this place always felt extremely eerie to me as a kid playing the MNOG, especially when it was absolutely deserted toward the end. There’s nobody in this vast, subterranean mineshaft but yourself, and nothing to keep you company except your lightstone and the vaguely ominous ambient music. But that was nothing compared to what lay even further below…
