For the past 75 years, a tiny bridal shop in Mexico has been the subject of some pretty crazy rumors. But the creepiest rumor centers around a bridal mannequin sitting in the window; a highly detailed dummy that many say is a perfectly preserved corpse. Eventually, people began to notice the similarities between the mannequin, nicknamed La Pascualita, and the daughter of La Popular’s proprietor, Pascuala Esparza. According to legend, Esparza’s daughter had tragically passed away on her wedding day, victim of a Black Widow spider bite. Locals whispered that the beautiful figure in the window was, in fact, the embalmed body of Esparza’s daughter. Of course, Pascuala Esparza formally denied the allegations, but by that point, it was too late - the legend was set in stone.Today, La Pascualita still sits in the window of La Popula, and the rumors have only become more pervasive. Of all the employees who work at the popular bridal shop, only two are allowed to change her clothing, and only behind closed doors. It’s a practice that makes some of the employees pretty uncomfortable.

THE DARK SIDE OF DREAMS
In the late 1960s, photographer Arthur Tress began a series of photographs that were inspired by the dreams of children. Tress had each child he approached tell him about a prominent dream of theirs which Tress would then artistically re-create and photograph with the child as the main subject.
I wanted to use a wisdom tooth for mine but I settled for one I found at an oddities shop. So I’m envious that you kept yours!
I looked for blank ring settings, and even just settings I could work with in general, at craft stores, online, and antique stores. The one I settles on had a cameo in the setting. After I removed that, I has to file the tooth into a shape that would fit the setting. I used an electric craft file since teeth are harder than holy hell to file. That was the longest part of the while pro was for me.
I used this two part media compound called Fix It. It’s essentially epoxy but more of a clay base than the clear liquid compound you usually find in craft stores.
Before it dried completely, I covered the rim with two different sizes of tiny rhinestones to cover any place the epoxy showed. It also gave it a pop of sparkle to macabre aspect of the tooth.
I kind of learned how to do it as I went along. It wasn’t easy and it took a hot minute to actually finish it, but I’m pretty happy and proud of the result.
I hope that helps any. Let me know if you run into any problems. Good luck!
