Guro Lolita (Gore Lolita) is the portrayal of a ‘broken doll’ or “Innocent Gore”, which outfits are often inspired by nurse uniforms and are splattered with fake blood, incorporating surgical tubing and bandages sometimes. Guro-Lolitas use makeup to draw wounds and scars on their faces .By using the items mentioned above can be give the appearance of injury.

They usually wear white, maybe it emphasizes the contrast between purity and their wounds, or maybe it is simply because blood shows up better on white.
