Has this happened to you? You think you just came up with the most rockin’ Halloween costume ever — one that’s unique, and you absolutely love being in it, and you kind of wish Halloween costume parties would never end so you can just wear it forever — but when you wear it to a party, no one knows what in the world you’re supposed to be? Yeah, it’s the worst. But if it makes you feel any better, even one of the most famous women in the world has lived through that struggle.
Taylor Swift recently took to Instagram to share a #tbt — except it was on Wednesday, so a li’l bit early — of one of her costumes from grade school. But she wasn’t a princess, or even a cat (the latter of which we honestly expected, given the fact that she’s a stellar present-day cat mom). Nope, she dressed up as something all us ’90s kids can remember vividly: The yellow Teletubby (Laa-Laa, for reference). The only problem? Little T-Swift was a bit ahead of the times.
“When you dress as the yellow teletubby for Halloween, but it’s before Teletubbies got huge so all the kids at school ask you why you’re dressed as a yellow pregnant alien,” she wrote in the Instagram caption.
We feel ya, girl. Halloween can be hard sometimes. But does this mean that Taylor’s original ’90s squad consisted of Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, and Po? That’s the REAL question. Either way, this picture is bringing us SO much joy. We can’t help but wonder how many Laa-Laas we’ll be seeing at Halloween parties now, thanks to T-Swift’s confession. . .
