Guro Lolita Christmas

Guro Loli Christmas


Christmas Tree

Hands down a white Christmas tree is best, you could go with silver as well, or one of those Lighted Twig Trees. You're white tree could have some sparkle to it, but if you're really want a Guro Loli tree it's got to be white. The lights should be white too.

Ornaments
I would stick with mostly red, white, and silver ornaments. Any other colors can work but must be few and far between, you can go as gruesome or not as you'd like. Pointsettas, holly berries, and icicles would still look innocent and not freak your parents out. Hearts fit the Guro theme, you could even make them bleed if you'd want. If you want to get more themed try fake plastic knives, felt cut out of bloody hand prints, start collecting light weight body parts and organs at Halloween to attach to your tree. For a tree topper it depends on your sensibilities and what you've got on hand. A ghost, zombie or vampire angel, a Brain, Halloween Mask, my personal favorite would be to attach a bloody hands grasping a candle thrusting from the top.

Stocking Stuffers
Think spooky but remember Guro Lolita is not Goth so try to think of items that are spooky with a Victorian edge. Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs fit's the theme and there are enough scents that anyone could find something they'd like, the Mad Tea Party is recommended. Movies like Coraline, Rocky Horror, and Nightmare Before Christmas, which are spooky but not gory can work well. If you know this person well and know how much gore they can stand try Battle Royale, Sweeney Todd, or the 1978 version of Dawn of the Dead.

Avoid black items or at least try to stick with items that have very little black in them. Try typing Memento Mori into Etsy, but remember to think about what you're Guro Lolita friend could handle. This kind of necklace looks really cool, as does this, and this, but they might not feel Linkcomfortable wearing animals parts. Maybe give this a try instead, it's on theme but not too gruesome.
