La Pascualita, A Bridal Shop Mannequin That Looks Like A Preserved Human Corpse

Her hands are very realistic and she even has varicose veins on her legs.

In the middle of Chihuahua, Mexico, there is a bridal shop named “La Popular” that is quite famous. However, it’s not famous because of the dresses. It’s the store mannequins that keep them on the map.

For more than 80 years, visitors have been lured to the wedding gown shop to study the spookily lifelike bridal mannequin in the window. Most are so captivated by the mesmerizing gaze of La Pascualita, that they leave convinced that she is a mummy rather than a dummy. That Mexican bridal shop mannequin puzzled locals. According to local legends, the mannequin is actually the preserved daughter of the shop’s former owner.

Disturbing, but is it true? No one knows for sure. Take a look at these pictures and decide for yourself. The details you’ll be able to see on this corpse bride is incredible.

The mannequin is nicknamed La Pascualita or Little Pascuala.

According to Ripley’s Believe it or not, the owner at the time La Pascualita came to the store was Pascuala Esparza, hence the nick name.

La Pascualita was first installed in the window in 1930. People soon realized that she bore an uncanny likeness to the store’s owner at the time, Pascuala Esparza.

They concluded that the apparent mannequin was really the embalmed body of Esparza’s daughter who had died recently on her wedding day after being bitten by a black widow spider.

The locals began to suspect that La Pascualita was actually the body of the owner’s daughter.

Pascuala’s daughter died tragically from a Black Widow spider bite on her wedding day.

Of course, Pascuala denied that the mannequin was her daughter.

But the rumor had already taken on a life of its own, and no one believed her.

It’s said that at night La Pascualita will sometimes shift positions in the window, and her eyes will follow you around the store.

Only the owner and a few close employees are allowed to dress and undress her.

One shop worker, Sonia Burciaga, who has to change La Pascualita outfits twice a week, says:

“Every time I go near Pascualita my hands break out in a sweat. Her hands are very realistic and she even has varicose veins on her legs. I believe she’s a real person.”

Some locals and brides consider La Pascualita a saint. They pray to her or leave gifts for her with the shop workers.

Of course not everyone is convinced La Pascualita is a corpse. Some say she may actually be a wax dummy.

Real or not, she is still kind of freaky.
