Plaguecore is an aesthetic about plague doctors. The community is super friendly although behind their masks you might not know, but they are willing to listen to your needs and they'll do their best to cure you. But if you upset them they will be sure to mess up your humors.

The aesthetic revolves around mostly black and grays, leeches, bloodletting, lavender, cloaks, bird masks, and dark humor. This aesthetic was also created on Tumblr: https://www.tumblr.com/tagged/plaguecore


Fashion

Plaguecore fashion mostly consists of medieval plague doctor outfits. Many people choose to wear these because plaguecore is based off of plague doctors. But because there are many people who can't afford to buy plague doctor outfits, doctors (people who are do plaguecore) have been nice enough to make a list of things that modern doctors can dress in for plaguecore.

This modern plaguecore attire follows mostly:

  • Wearing all black (gray and brown also acceptable)
  • Old leather jackets
  • Rubber boots
  • Dark sunglasses
  • Lavender perfume/deodorant
  • Having a mask collection (both medical and costume)
  • Long walks in the woods
  • Shelves full of books, trinkets and jars
  • Spending time in graveyards
  • Abandoned buildings
  • Night walks
  • Incense
  • Leather-bound journals
  • Dark red wine in ornate glasses
  • Houseplants? Very good
  • Leeches? Also very good
  • You’re most at home in liminal spaces, because you, too, are just a little out of sync with the world
  • You’re not sure what’s going on but you’re doing your best
  • Looking scary and goth but being kind and well-meaning
  • You manage to be both a Respected Man of Science and Local Cryptid who Lives in a Cave
