Woodland Goth is an Internet aesthetic that combines dark, romantic elements of Goth culture with light subjects like flowers or soft woodland animals. The aesthetic is based off woodland survival and agriculture with a gothic twist.

Elements of woodland goth have been taken from Goblincore, Fairycore, Cottagecore and goth.


The Woodland Goth aesthetic can include;

  • Abandoned buildings or cottages
  • Fairies
  • Old farms
  • Old nick-knacks, such as porcelain dolls
  • Mushrooms
  • Flowers
  • Poetry
  • Candles and old lamps
  • Misty forests


  • Walks through the forest
  • Writing in a journal
  • Drawing plants or animals
  • Extracting natural poisons
  • Catching bugs
  • Collecting mushrooms, herbs, etc.
  • Admiring roses
  • Dancing with the trees in the moonlight
  • Singing in the middle of the woods where no one can hear you
  • Pressing flowers
  • Exploring abandoned places that have been taken over by nature
  • Making jewelry from animal bones
  • Watching woodland animals at dusk


Woodland goth fashion is often intricate and fancy, and consequently impractical for the agricultural work it is associated with.

Woodland goth fashion commonly includes:

  • 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 jewelry that revolves around nature.
  • Floral prints.
  • Stockings or leggings.
  • Flats or work boots.
  • Faerie-inspired makeup looks.
  • Parasols
