No one’s ever proved the rumor but everyone seems so sure that this shop owner has her daughter’s corpse as the bridal dress mannequin after she’s died on her wedding day. This bridal shop is located in the middle of Chihuahua in Mexico, and is quite famous locally, due much to the legend. But is it true or just a rumor? You can decide yourself after seeing these pictures about the mannequin.
“La Popular”, a very well-known bridal shop in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico, is the “house” of this mannequin. It is said that her mother was the original owner of the shop and when her daughter died on her wedding day, she went crazy and mummified her to always have her dressed in beautiful gowns that matched her beauty. She is still in exhibition today.
She looks like a mannequin, but not a very generic one. She has some fine expression lines.
Pascuala’s daughter, whose name has been lost to history, died tragically from a Black Widow spider bite on her wedding day.
They change her dress very often, but nobody ever sees when they do it. Only the owner of the establishment and some close employees are allowed to undress/dress her.
Some people consider her a saint. They leave candles and pray in front of the window to ask for special favors or help in matters of love. Some other people leave gifts to the clerks of the shop for Pascualita. Some brides go to the bridal shop and they won’t look at any dress but the one Pascualita is wearing. They say wearing it will bring good fortune in their marriage.
Some people say that she changes positions during the night, moving her weight from one foot to the other or tilting her head and bending her elbows. Others claim proudly that Pascualita smiled at them. Some others feel that when they pass by, she follows them with her gaze.
