Glitter describes an assortment of very small, flat, and reflective particles. When these particles are applied to surfaces, they each reflect light in different angles causing the surface to sparkle or glitter. Glitter is similar to, but smaller than confetti or sequins. Glitter has been produced and used decoratively since prehistoric times from many different materials including mica, insects, glass, and now plastic.

Some abandon everything for the outward shell, in the interest of “glitter and looks”, let freeze themselves in artificial postures and renounce realness and sense of self, for the sake of fake appearances, which do not belong to their personality. They live through the eyes of others and cannot enjoy an individual life. Their pathetic fate is an impressive lack of authenticity, spontaneity, candidness, which is a unique key to an open-minded existence. ("Like a frozen image")
