Aesthetics Wiki

Villaincore is an aesthetic which encompasses being yourself and doing everything in your power to get what you want, by any means necessary. This, for example, might be becoming rich or famous, or getting revenge on someone who's wronged you. Villaincore is sometimes embraced by people who were wrongfully (in their opinion) seen as the "bad guy", and are now reclaiming that. Villaincore is sometimes associated to trauma, as victims can use the idea of becoming someone so powerful they would be feared (and often getting revenge) through their bad experiences as a coping mechanism.


Villaincore visuals usually revolve around darkness and the passion you carry for reaching your goal.

Villaincore fashion can involve any clothing suitable for villainy; you are your own ruler and you deserve to look like your own ruler.

Villaincore outfits can be varied, as some people like to go for a "cartoon villain" style (e.g. an evil scientist), while others would prefer a more realistic villainous sense of fashion, for example a more royal style. Villaincore outfits don't need to relate to royalty, even if they are often associated with it; it is about wearing whatever makes you feel like the one in control.

This could include:

  • Leather
  • Heeled boots or buckled boots
  • Labcoats or trenchcoats (long coats in general)
  • Stripes, or geometric patterning
  • Ripped clothing
  • Black nail polish
  • Goggles or glasses
  • Long dresses
  • Crowns as accessories
  • Ornate jewelry

Instead of buying clothing specially made for a villain, you can and are encouraged in creating and customizing clothing for yourself.
