Guro Lolita

A grotesque edition for the morbid

If you ever spot a staggering lolita covered in blood and wearing an eyepatch, you most likely just encountered the rare breed known as Guro Lolita. Guro is an abbrevation for grotesque, and includes lolitas splattered with blood, to lighter versions where they are covered in tattered bandages. While this style may not be something for everday use, it's perfect for Halloween or photoshoots.

Overview

  • The style simulates the look of an innocent broken doll, straight out of a horror movie.
  • Follows the traditional lolita silhouette.
  • Inspiration is Mitsukazu Mihara, an illustrator and manga artist. She made many illustrations related to Guro and Ero Lolita.
  • A white lolita dress, or a blouse x skirt is usually the base for the styling.
  • Clothes can be splattered with blood. The blood can be fake blood (messy), acrylic paint (permanent) or fabric dye (messy).
  • A medical cross symbol may be applied somewhere on the outfit.
  • Fake bruises and stitches on arms and knees.
  • Limbs may be covered with tattered gauze bandages and bandaids.
  • Arm slings, eyepatches, nurse hats, fake knives, broken dolls or bloody teddybears are common accessories.
  • No shoes at all, or platform shoes are often seen.

Makeup & Hair

  • Any Lolita-esque hairstyle.
  • Darker eyeshadow for a scarier look.
  • Eyeliner if desired.
  • Mascara.
  • Red lipstick.
  • If desired, fake eyelashes can be put on to achieve a doll look.
  • It is also common to use special contacts called circle lenses to achieve said above look.

Note: Of course, these are just simple occurrences that are commonly seen within this style. They are no absolute rules of any kind. Be creative and experiment!

Shopping

Guro Lolitas may consider buying cheaper clothing for blood splattering, such as from Bodyline, chinese brands from Qutieland, or second-hand. You may also want to check out the non-lolita brand Blablahospital for medical-related clothing. H.Naoto also has a lot of tattered clothing that may fit the image, and Suppurate System carries a selection of interesting eyepatches.
If you are willing to stain more expensive clothing, any brand store will do fine.
