I recently learn of cottagecore and it basicly look like steampunk for luddite. Unless a combination is possible. May be more fitting for gaslight romance but my steampunk\folk horror hybrid daydreams often had hint of this esthetic in the past. What do you think ?

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

Cottagecore is an Internet aesthetic which celebrates a return to traditional skills and crafts such as foraging, baking and pottery, and is related to similar nostalgic aesthetic movements such as grandmacore, farmcore, goblincore and faeriecore.

Who am I to judge? But I just don't know man! It seems to me their could call it "Post Art and Crafts" or Nouveaupunk and be done with it. Faeries? Art Nouveau. Pottery? Arts and Crafts. Grandmacore?? Really? I'd call it Babushkapunk. The words "core" and "grandma" don't belong in the same sentence! It's just an alphabet soup of terms...  Grin
