I love a good music festival, and I love me some good ole' glitter & boho vibes. However, people have officially taken festival style too far- by putting glitter on their butts. And no, I don't mean that in some weird figurative way. I mean people are literally decorating their derrières with gemstones and butt-tons (pun intended) of glitter.
I totally get the whole glitter on your hair and face look, because well, it looks dope AF:
But this.... this is just too damn much for me:
I'm sorry, nothing about this look makes me want to put glitter ON MY ASS. My ass is for sitting, and it looks pretty darn good without any gemstones and glitter, thank you very much. I guess maybe I'm missing the point, but how is this at all comfortable? I can't even imagine the amount of glue or hairspray it would take to get this glitter to stay on my ass cheeks, and that does NOT sound like fun to wash off at the end of the day.
Mia Kennington, self-proclaimed "glitter creature" (tf?), is really the one who started this whole trend. According to Teen Vogue, she came up with the idea at a music festival. “We were in bikinis and were getting sand all over our butts anyway, so we were like, 'Well, what if we enhance this?'” she recounts. “So we just did loads and loads of glitter.”
Sand is one thing- and it's hard enough to get it out of all your nooks and crannies at the end of the day. But purposely slathering yourself in glitter back there? IT'S TOO MUCH.
I mean, seriously? I'm all for flaunting what you got, but this is so beyond extra, I can't even comprehend it (and I'm pretty extra, so that's saying something).
Maybe this isn't as crazy as I think it is (but... it's pretty damn crazy), and maybe by some miracle it's not as uncomfortable as I'm imagining it being. But I'm certainly not going to volunteer to try this out, so someone else will have to do it and tell me how it is.
