Boo! La Pascualita

Oh my friends.  This tale today is scary unbelievable. It makes you want to do a double take… and possibly a triple take.  But, I’m getting ahead of myself.  You see working on my 31 Days of Spook takes month of advance preparation.  All year long, I’m looking for just the right stories to bring to you.  Stories of the macabre, ghosts, strange tales, paranormal and things that go bump in the night.  But this story, it caught my attention and I’ve been waiting for some time to share it.

This is something that is strange.  It takes place in Chihuahua, Mexico.  There’s a well known bridal shop in the town called La Popular.  In the bridal shop, there is a mannequin nicknamed La Pascualita that is wearing a wedding dress in the store window.  Sounds all innocent enough, right?  Well here’s the twist.  Some say that La Pascualita might be real.  Do I have your interest piqued now?

You see, for the past 75 years this bridal shop has had rumors flying around about La Pascualita.  Some believe that this mannequin is actually a perfectly preserved corpse!

La Pascualita was placed in the window on March 25, 1930.  Locals saw it and knew that something just wasn’t right about it.  Look at the pictures to the left.  Do you know notice anything odd?

According to the legend, La Popular’s owner Pascuala Esparza had a daughter. His daughter tragically passed away on her wedding day from the bite of a black widow spider.  Some believe that Esparza had his daughter embalmed and that she is now the famous La Pascualita in the shop window.  Of course Esparza has denied such rumors.

Funny thing though – if La Pascualita isn’t Esparza’s daughter why all the secrecy.  What secrecy you ask?  Well, of all of the employees of the shop there are only two that are allowed to change her clothing and that is only behind a closed door.

Other employees of the shop so that La Pascualita’s hands are very realistic and some say you can even see wrinkles and varicose veins on her legs.  Other employees say they come into the shop in the early mornings only to see that La Pascualita has changed positions on her own.  And then there are other employees that say La Pascualita ‘watches’ them during the day.

You be the judge.  What do you think?

31 Days of Spook – The Italian Bride

Julia Buccola Petta died at age 29 while giving birth to her stillborn son, Filippo.  Julia was buried in her wedding dress and given the nickname of The Italian Bride.  According to legend, Julia’s mother, Filomena, began having dreams in which Julia was telling her that she was still alive.  Years after her death, Filomena received permission to have the grave opened and her daughter exhumed.  Her mother then took a picture of Julia in her casket which was then placed on the monument.  The picture is still there on her grave at the Mount Carmel Cemetery in Chicago, Illinois.

Future Mrs. Bacon –

The piggy of my dreams has a new movie coming out next year on March 21, 2014.  I’m sorry mom/dad.  You are just going to *have* to take me to the movies to see it when it debuts.  I’m thinking if we call ahead and make arrangements with the local theater, they will allow me in for the show.  Heck, I’ll start saving my money in my human bank until then to pay for my ticket.

Miss Piggy – the pig of my dreams – swoon!  Her new movie is called Muppets Most Wanted.  This movie is about the Muppets going on a global tour in Europe.  Somehow they find themselves entangled in a crime caper headed by Constantine – who is a dead ringer for Kermit.  Oh the atrocity!  Personally, they can have Kermit as long as I get the pig – Miss Piggy that is 🙂  But, it’s not fair of me to wish the frog harm so I won’t.  Taps hooves… thinks for a minute… asks for forgiveness… but I am the better pig – snorts.

So, here’s the preview for the new movie my sweet will be in.  Enjoy.  And Muppet peeps if you are listening, Miss Piggy needs more airtime please.  She is the *star* of the movie in my eyes.  Thank you.
