Twitter can’t stop laughing at the woman who dyed her skin blue with a bath bomb
So many cosplay options.
A woman on Twitter is claiming a “Galaxy bath bomb” purchased at Kroger has turned her blue from the neck down.
“I was in the bath for a solid 5 minutes and now I am a freaking SMURF,” Rebekah Butler posted on Sunday. “It seriously dyed my skin.”
Obviously, people felt horrible for Butler and offered their condolences. Just kidding. Everyone made fun of her because it’s the internet.

For many people, her skin was reminiscent of other famous “bluings” in that have taken place in television and movie history.

It turns out that bath bombs dying people’s skin is a somewhat common phenomenon. At least one woman ended up bright pink after using a bomb created by Lush Cosmetics.
But Butler needn’t worry too much. We’re sure her blue skin will go away after a few days (or weeks). Until then, imagine all the fun cosplay options.
