La Pascualita is a mysterious urban legend originating in Mexico. Supposedly, a mannequin in the window of a bridal gown store in the city of Chihuahua, Mexico is really the embalmed body of the former store owner’s daughter. The former store owner was called Pascuala Esparza. La Pascualita means ‘Little Pascuala’ (i.e. her daughter). According to the legend her daughter died from the bite of a Black Widow spider on her wedding day, so Pascuala embalmed her and stood her up in the window of the store.
