Hey y’all! It feels like forever since I’ve actually written something for this page. In all honesty, I’ve had so many half finished articles in my drafts but no motivation to actually do anything about them. This is not one of those drafts.
So I recently learned about the Honeycore aesthetic through Dana’s art page on instagram. This post to be specific:
The Honeycore aesthetic is similar to Cottagecore but it has more of a focus on honey, bread, and waffles. There’s a heavy emphasis on yellow in the color palette for Honeycore and the outfits are a little different. Honeycore outfits mainly include sundresses, overalls, and shorts. It has a super sunny feel to it, which I absolutely love. The wiki page has a few more specifics on it.
I’ve come to the conclusion that this aesthetic was created for Black people, especially Black women and I don’t think anyone can change my mind on that. As it should be common knowledge that Black people invented the color Yellow, this was made for us.
Also, I’m a nature geek so this feels like it’s calling to me. All this to say, I’ve been making a lot of Honeycore inspired art and I just wanted to share it with y’all. You can find some videos of my making them on my Instagram account (which is now an art page).
