Alrighty, Then

So, I was watching some videos on YouTube, and an ad came up for CoverGirl. The only thing I know about CoverGirl is that their eye makeup usually rubs off faster than fairy dust, but whatever. Anyway, this ad was pushing their new line of makeup based off of the capitol from the Hunger Games. Well, I never liked CoverGirl much, but right now I'm someone afraid of what that signifies for our country's fasion future. Seriously, if the creeps in the capitol become the standard for girls' outfits, I may have a heart attack before I'm twenty-five.

  1. Yeah, the stuff about the Capitol seemed like an exaggerated version of our vanity and the lengths we take it to, or perhaps a "what if we did take it to these lengths in the future". Either way, it's a criticism of our society's views.
    It's kind of like reading "1984" and deciding we should imitate the government portrayed in it. In essence, we're accepting the very thing the author is saying we need to avoid or that we might be heading for.
