Glitter pumpkin butts are the most WTF Halloween trend of 2018

Because we all know someone who is this extra for Halloween.
It’s not long until Halloween now and you might be absolutely stumped for Halloween costume ideas. How many Harley Quinn’s and scantily-clad cats will there be? Well, there’s one way you’re sure to stand out from the crowd and all you need is glitter and a booty.
Yep, get ready because pumpkin butts are the viral trend sweeping over the internet this year – if you’re brave (and confident) enough.
It all started last year with glitter boobs, which took over the festival circuit, and now it seems you can dip any body part in the stuff and voila it’s a costume. One of the original creators of the trend, Go Go Glitter, posted a photo of a pumpkin-painted butt on Instagram and the rest is history. Now the artwork is cropping up all over the web.
"The glitter bum trend we started is so popular, we wanted to find a way to tie it in with the Halloween content we have been creating,” Sophia Levy, co-founder of Go Go Glitter, told MarieClaire.com. "Our peach bum was, and still is, one of our most popular looks, so we wanted to recreate it with a Halloween twist!"
The makeup artist used black and orange paint to create the actual pumpkin and then filled it in with chunky (biodegradable) glitter. Pretty simple if you’re too lazy to buy a whole costume, right?

Now logistically, we can’t say this will be the best outfit. Glitter sticks and we mean stickkkks. So prepare to find it your pants for decades to come. Also, what happens when you go to the bathroom? Who knows.
It’s not just butts being dunked in glitter though. Draw attention to your cleavage with a variety of spooky sparkles on offer. A spider, skeleton or ghoul, perhaps?
Proving you can never go too overboard for Halloween, it’s no wonder it’s caught on – but will you try it?
