There was once a young woman who always dreamed of having her wedding in the backyard of the farmhouse where she spent her childhood. Years later, the big day finally arrived and she invited friends from near and far to attend her jolly wedding celebration at the farmhouse. Since so many of her guests had brought along their children to play, the newlyweds thought it would be fun to play the simple game of hide-and-seek with everybody. Given that this was her old house, the bride wanted to find the best hiding spots and made sure the groom was ‘it’. As the groom was counting down, she scurried up to the attic and stepped into an old trunk to hide. Hours later, the groom still had not found her and eventually, everybody assumed she had just went to sleep and left the party. Yet, years later, the bride was still nowhere to be found.
Long after the bride’s mysterious disappearance, the mother of the bride passed away from an illness. The father decided to return to the farmhouse to collect some of her belongings and climbed up to the attic. He noticed the trunk and while he didn’t remember storing anything in there, he opened it up just in case. Imagine his horror upon prying open the dusty trunk to find the decaying body of the bride, mouth still in the shape of a scream from being accidentally trapped in the trunk years ago.
Basically everybody has had the crap scared out of them by a mannequin that creepily looked like a real person. But is there a corpse disguised as a mannequin?
In a wedding dress shop in Chihuahua, Mexico, there is a lovely mannequin that has been displayed in the show window for 85 years. While a mannequin in a shop window is nothing unusual, the locals call this one La Pascualita. They say that she is so realistic, people believe her to be a mummy preserved in the shop for centuries, and not without good reason. When she was first placed in the window in 1930, people realized that she strangely resembled the daughter of the shop owner. However, the daughter was rumoured to have died on her wedding day, bitten by a deadly Black Widow spider. The mannequin still stands eerily in the window and locals claim her eyes follow them in the store or that she changes positions in the night.
