“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 captioned the funny pic of herself in the large costume, holding a Teletubby doll.

Nowadays, Swift has a whole posse of supermodels and superstars to go trick-or-treating with (read: to bake cookies with) and she’s known for getting into the spooky holiday.

“Cause, darling I’m a nightmare dressed like a PEGACORN. #HappyHalloween!” she captioned a cute Instagram at the time.
