Vaporcottage is largely a joke aesthetic originating from the Aesthetics Wiki Discord, mainly done as a thought experiment to see if one could take the grounded, earnest, and realistic escapism of Cottagecore could be mixed with the surrealist, sarcastic, and incredibly dystopian nightmare that is Vaporwave in an attempt to prove that any aesthetics can be blended. It was described as "what you'd see after ingesting mushroom soup laced with xanax; you start seeing a bunch of weird shit while away for a weekend in the cottage to get away from the big city and its rampant hyperconsumerism. The radio that won't stop playing advertisements and the billboard in the farm fields haunt you as the light from the ad shines through your lace curtains, and while crickets chirp and a stream trickles softly, you can't sleep because the giant Burger King ad illuminates your quiet cottage in the countryside and the gentle flicker of the lights of the fireflies triggers a sense of dread that the Christmas season is about to begin. You look at the warm, cozy fireplace and wonder how you'll decorate your Christmas tree this year, what will you buy for your friends?" If one can figure out how this aesthetic could work in a realistic capacity, please let us know and share your results with the world.
