Spiritcore is an aesthetic primarily based around the feeling of the supernatural or out of this world happenings at night. It is often associated with a feeling of loneliness, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. It is similar to the Lo-Fi aesthetic in the sense of its color palette and general setting; however, it more strongly associates with Lunarpunk as it has a strong feel of magic and fictitious happenings.


Although the primarily described style is the outdoors, quite often this aesthetic can be found indoors as well. The same colour scheme ideas and motifs apply, however these elements only apply to indoors imagery.

  • Darkly lit rooms
  • Fairy lights
  • Bright moons
  • Features from Dark Academia (ex. books)
  • Mystical elements (ex. astrology posters)
