Pastel Clowncore[]

Pastel Clowncore is an aesthetic that is Clowncore but in pastel colours.

Dark Clowncore[]

Dark Clowncore involves creepy, eerie, gory images and fashion relating to clowns and circuses.

This in many ways is more common than Clowncore itself thanks to the popularity of comic book supervillains like The Joker and Harley Quinn.


Mimecore is about looking like a mime by wearing berets, black and white shirts, gloves, and makeup, as well as acting like one by using gestures to communciate instead of talking. It is similar to clowncore as both aesthetics are about looking and acting like the style of a certain type of tradtional entertainer. Due to the similarities, mimecore usually falls under clowncore.
