Goblincore is a style of appreciation that appreciates creatures and items from the natural world that are traditionally considered unattractive. This can include animals such as frogs and snails, but also materials such as moss, mud, plants and fungi such as mushrooms.
Goblincore is also known as Gremlincore, or Greedcore
Goblins! Why them?
The central figure of this aesthetic is the Goblin: originally a malevolent creature in European folklore, in Goblincore it has been reimagined to represent a person’s fascination with nature’s wildness and unpredictability.
Goblincore is known for its fascination with collecting and cherishing small, often glittering objects, affectionately referred to as ‘shinys’ by Goblin enthusiasts. The practice of Goblincore overlaps with other trends such as Cottagecore and Vulture Culture, in which many Goblins are very interested.
The features of Goblincore Aesthetic
- Snails, buttons, painted stones and pebbles in earth tones, mushrooms and moss, frogs and toads – all these things can be used to create beautiful tinctures.
- Rings made from old, tarnished jewelry or made from discarded junk are also popular accessories.
- Jewelry inspired by fantasy, mythology and adventure is always eye-catching.
- Forests, bugs and crystals provide a wonderful source of inspiration for those who want to make something truly unique.
All these elements combine to create beautiful works of wearable art.
The fashion of Goblincore Aesthetic
Leprechauns are usually dressed in shades of dark green or brown. Sometimes they will wear a belt with an alchemist pouch or small pouch attached, useful for storing shiny trinkets.
Goblincore fashion consists of comfortable garments that are ready for anything the outdoors can throw at them. Thrifted or second-hand items, paired with bright and clashing patterns, create a unique look.
For these adventurous souls, dirt comes to be part of their lifestyle—so don’t expect to see pristine printed clothes. Oversized sweaters, worn jeans or overalls, and quirky socks embody this style perfectly. The earth tones of brown and green work best to complete the look while exploring nature’s offerings. Collecting interesting trinkets is a common hobby for leprechaun fans, which makes this style even more appealing.
