Witchcore 101 – Royal Violet


Get into the Halloween spirit with an aesthetic like no other. Cultivate your spells and potions as a member of the Witchcore Aesthetic this spooky season. Revolving around the mystical and magical world of witches, this aesthetic incorporates themes from Harry Potter, American Horror Story, and other diverse media surrounding spellcasting and potion making.

Visuals typically associated with Witchcore include small glass bottles (for potions), mushrooms, moss, wands, candles, the list goes on. By channeling their inner witch, participants are able to choose the type of witchcraft they “practice” or associate with, such as a coven-based witch, crystal, or cosmic witch. Coven Witches are members of a group that use their powers to develop more powerful spells and magic, while Crystal and Cosmic Witches are more associated with crystals and stars, respectively.

When witches are typically mentioned in conversation, you might think of someone with dark robes, a black pointy hat, and an evil laugh. However, the attire for witchcore isn’t necessarily the stereotypical witch you’d see in Snow White. Although darker colors are a staple of witchcore, earth tones and natural hues have become popular in recent years. Gothic and hippie themes have also made their way into the witchcore aesthetic with the recent increase in savings for vintage clothing.

The decor for witchcore uses a lot of the visuals mentioned above. While the term witch is generally interpreted as a person of a darker nature, the witchcore setting also puts this stereotype to rest. Objects of nature such as flowers and crystals are widely used in witchcore and usually have a purpose such as leading or creating happiness for that individual. Decor is usually researched, saved, or created by an individual, as most decor is usually handcrafted. Items include, but are not limited to, fresh flowers, books, crows, mason jars, crystals, and chopsticks.

As the spooky season approaches, consider taking inspiration from the witchcore aesthetic. Whether you’re looking for a last minute costume or looking to switch things up a bit this year, witchcore serves as an escape from reality for everyone. For ideas and inspiration on witchcore, click here.
