Guro Lolita

Spelled guro rori (グロロリ) in Japanese, which comes from an abbreviated transliteration of grotesque, this style pursues to remark the wearer’s innocence, despite their gory appearance. It can produce quite a shock, particularly when it features major — and of course, fake injuries and white clothing splattered with — again, fake blood, all mixed with the cuteness of a pure lolita image.

Representative traits of Guro Lolita clothing

Any light-colored clothing is fit for this style, though white dresses, blouses, skirts and aprons are the most frequent choices. As mentioned before, it’s the splattering of red over them, as well as any other way of pretending you’re hurt, what creates the desired effect — bandaids are, for example, an alternative to fake injuries. While you can choose any kind of footwear, not wearing it adds to the sense of vulnerability.

As a rule of thumb, it’s better to buy cheap clothes for this style, unless you are willing and ready to stain expensive clothing.

About the occasions where such style is usually worn

It is important to note that even when lolita is not intended to be worn as a mere costume — doing so would be regarded as cosplay lolita; this style isn’t recommended for daily use, but instead for particular times. Occasions like group photographs or parties where you wish to express yourself in this image and feeling would be usually seen as the true great times to wear it.

The reason for this is that it can easily be seen as too shocking to be an everyday outfit. The same happens with other substyles which would be too striking or costume-like for everyday use — for example, maid lolita. But of course, this is a somewhat subjective opinion, and we believe that the final decision goes with every person and their particular needs and wishes. After all, fashion always evolves.
