Woodland Goth or Dark Fairy-core, is an internet aesthetic which mixes dark, romantic elements of Gothic culture with light subjects like flowers or soft woodland animals. The aesthetic is based off woodland survival and agriculture with a gothic twist.

Elements has been taken from Goblincore, Fairycore, Cottagecore and usually Gothic Lolita, or Romantic Goth.


The Woodland Goth aesthetic can include;

  • Abandoned buildings or cottages
  • Fairies
  • Old farms
  • Old nick-knacks, such as porcelain dolls
  • Mushrooms
  • Picking flowers
  • Catching bugs
  • Poetry

  • Big, gothic lolita-esque skirts, usually with petticoats underneath.
  • loose fitting big button up shirts.
  • Blouses or simple long sleeves.
  • Colors such as Black, Grays, Dark reds, Purples, Navy Blues, Moss Greens and Ivories
  • Hand knitted accessories, such as wool hats or scarves.
  • Ripped shortalls, or overalls.
  • Floral jewelry, or jeweler that revolves around nature.
  • Floral prints
