Well it sure as hell pollutes the ears.

I hate that crap.

I want a dedicated room as an office and photography framing area. Wife wants us to share a room as a "craft room." She likes glitter.

I wonder if landscapes with glitter under glass might become a thing.

Can't we make a rapidly-biodegradable glitter?  3-D printed diffraction gratings on cornstarch or something?

Back, in college, I once dated a girl that had a huge ladyboner for electronic music (she was big on the rave scene, and I tagged along). It was a good time because it was the only girl I could talk about NIN, Depeche Mode, Photek and even Anime and games. We had a good time, and still we keep tabs (she's now specializing in acoustic design, which I think it's cool).

Back on topic though, she wore make up that had some glitter on it, so when I returned home, it looked like I romped around with the pixies or something.

When my wife sends packages to her sister, every once and a while she will dump a bunch of glitter into them. She has started to retaliate so I have to open all packages from her outside.

When I was a kid, our school had a annual fair and we sometimes made confetti eggs (painted emptied-out and dried eggs shells and we put flour and confetti in them).

I only used glitter; and the paint I used hardened rather stiff, so you needed to really smash the eggs before delivering the glitter.

My wife has a side business making calming bottles (they make excellent desk toys), so I'm definitely not getting a kick out of this...

Glitter and photography don't mix!
I had a black shirt with a glittery gold Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster logo on it.  After wearing it to a shoot I had to spend a week with a magnifying glass and a q-tip trying to remove the gold glitter from the inner workings of my camera. Never again.
Get a room dedicated to your wife's glitter craft and keep it 1000 ft from the house.

Pretty sure glitter is the only component that keeps feds guessing whether or not that's shampoo or Uranium.

Many years ago when we sent out our wedding invitations, we filled each card with glitter so when people opened it glitter poured out. Some people were pissed. I LOL'd.

almost 18 years later they're probably still finding glitter in their vaccumm cleaners.

In that case, I was dating that girl, so I guess I was branded?.

Thought of that right after I posted. Good catch.

From a purely material standpoint Glitter is relatively pretty farking bad.  Small enough  to enter organisms and or not be collected by  usual means yet still do all the damage of inhalable particulate matter.

I think the glitter/sparklies that Lush Cosmetics uses in their products is supposed to be environmentally friendly and plastic-free.

I manage a rental house, usually we turn overthe house in 2 or 3 hours. Only once have we had a glitter problem, a couple years ago. Weve cleaned the place like fifty times since then and we're still finding that crap from that one time. Guests are now asked to refrain from using glitter (gets everywhere), airsoft (ditto) , waterballoons(ditto), and hookahs (they fall over and the coals burn holes in just about anything). If kids want to paint, its restricted to outside or the laundry room.

I just hope it's before my girl gets old enough to use the stuff. 6 months is too young for glitter.

Maybe not during the shoot (as in your case), but in scrapbooking or collection phase.... it's an epidemic.  Or since we're going with the STD references, a pandemic.

I've always thought if you want to get revenge against a nightclub you go on their busiest night when the place is full of drunks, and place bottles of glitter on every table you can with the lid loosened and resting on top.  By the end of the night, everything would be tainted by unicorn farts and they would never ever successfully get it out of the place.

As the father of a former preschooler, I'm on board with the glitter hate.

The only thing worse than glitter is glitter glue.

I still have glitter glue stuck to my custom leather auto upholstry, 10 years later.
