Halloween lolita Ideas: Traditional Guro Lolita


 The image that comes to mind when people talk about "guro lolita" is usually a very old-school look, entirely in white, with blood splattered across it.
It's simple, it's effective, and I think every Lolita should try it at least once!
It's been a popular option for halloween co-ords since the beginning of lolita fashion.

the image on the left might be one of the most widespread, and oldest popular examples of traditional blood-splattered Guro Loli, appearing first on LJ many moons ago! It is still one of the best examples of the style.

key aspects include:
red blood.
cheap white dress.
Eyepatches.
bandages on limbs and tied in hair.
It's really up to you how far you want to go too - if you want to be completely blood-soaked, or tone it down and be simply 'wounded'


Some high fashion shows lately have shown this style of beading, to make a 3D blood effect:

it's both beautiful and gurotesque imho. Doing something like this for a costume would be time consuming, and painstaking, but the effect would surely be worth the effort!
Another idea is to use jewelery styled in a similar way, for the bejeweled-blood effect without so much of the work;
Other ways of doing this well-worn idea with a new twist is to wear it with colours instead of white. A simple blue or pink dress, with the usual blood-splattter effect would have the same look, while still being a little bit different!
