Crowcore is an aesthetic primarily derived from Goblincore and Cottagecore. This aesthetic focuses mainly on nature, environmentalism, crows and collecting (usually shiny) objects from nature and urban environments. Crowcore is generally darker than either of its initial inspirations.
Crowcore is sometimes used as an alternative to Goblincore, which has been criticized as anti-Semitic, but which shares the value of collecting small, lost, broken, thrown away, or conventionally trivial objects, and nature visuals.
There is significant Tumblr cross-tagging between Crowcore, Gremlincore, Cottagecore, and various other related aesthetics.
Some of these can include:
- Old coins
- Tiny glittery pebbles/stones
- Bones/Animal skulls
- Rusty bottle caps
- Tiny sculptures (usually of birds or other forest friends)
- Vintage brooches/lockets
- Items with crows present on them
- Shiny sharp things like swords, knives, or daggers
There are tons of activities you can do, from running barefoot in a field to embroidery, there are a vast amount of things you can do, outside and inside. These include (but aren't limited to):
- Sewing your own clothes/DIY clothing modifications
- Enjoying the company of birds (wild and tame)
- Wading in creeks looking for frogs or salamanders
- Enjoying the cool feel of dirt on your bare feet
- Spending time to organize your collections (putting them in pretty containers)
- Reading or studying
- Charcoal drawings
- Spending time hanging out with friends (crows often hang out in small groups)
- A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle
- And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
Think mysterious 1930s farm girl that embroiders, writes in her diary, and spends time playing in the rain. But we're in 2020. Here's some outfit inspo for this aesthetic.
