So after many months of planning, my tour costume and poster for 1989 Tour Columbus (night 1) are finally finished! This is my first time ever dressing up or making a poster, but I think they turned out pretty nicely! For my costume, I decided to try to recreate Taylor’s costume that she wears for Welcome to New York and New Romantics, because I fell in love with it when the first pictures from the Tokyo shows were posted. For my poster, I decided to use glitter paint (because who doesn’t love glitter?) and a lyric from New Romantics, which is “Baby I could build a castle out of all the bricks they threw at me”. I chose this lyric because New Romantics is one of my favorite songs on 1989 (along with Wonderland) and I liked the message behind it.
I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression for most of my life. Growing up with these “disorders”, I’ve always felt lost and alone, because not many people understood me. But then I discovered Taylor’s music, and I finally felt like somebody understood. Whenever I get sad, I listen to Taylor and instantly feel better. Having Taylor’s music to comfort me has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life, and I will never be able to thank her enough for being there, because even if she wasn’t there physically, she was there through her music. I really hope that one day, I’ll be able to hug her and thank her for this in person.
Taylor has shown me that it’s okay to be sad sometimes, but it’s important to pick yourself up and take those bricks that life throws at you and build a castle, because eventually, things will get better.
This will be my 4th time seeing Taylor with my dad (we also went to the Fearless Tour, Speak Now Tour, and Red Tour), and we’re so excited to see her again!
P.S.: We’re in Section 206, row B, seats 5-6, if anyone would like to come say hello. :)
