Halloweencoric is a coric xenogender where the person with this identity feels very connected to Halloween and its aesthetic. It involves the person not feeling fully human and somewhat "spooky" in their sense of self. Anyone can identify as Halloweencoric and it is not limited to neurodivergent people, but was made with them in mind as it relates to a different sense of self.
The term was coined in October 2020 as an alternative to Hallowgender, where instead of being focused on the silly and fun parts of Halloween, it is focused on the parts relating to darkness and magic.
The original flag was created by Discord user CEO of Spooky Chairs.
- The black stripes are used to represent the feeling of being connected to nighttime and darkness
- Blue is used to represent the feeling of being somewhat "spooky and mysterious"
- Purple is used to represent being connected to magic
- Orange is for the connection to autumn as a whole
- White is for feeling like a spirit or ghost of some sort, or not feeling fully human.
The alternate flag was created by Mod Hermy of pride-flags Deviantart to be easier on the eyes.
