This mannequin has been in a store window in Chihuahua, Mexico for the past 75 years. Pascualita also has a very unique urban legend behind her. Many believe that she is not a mannequin, but the perfectly preserved corpse of the previous owner’s daughter.
Sonia Burciaga, a shop worker says, “Every time I go near Pascualita my hands break out in a sweat. Her hands are very realistic and she even has varicose veins on her legs. I believe she’s a real person.”
Other stories include Pascualita chaning positions on her own, her eyes following you around and the usual superstitions that come with haunted maannequins.
Why has no one lifted her skirt to further prove if she’s an actual mummy?
THIS IS SO INSPIRATIONAL I HAVE TEARS IN MY EYES
She tried so hard to be brave, to be fierce as a wolverine and all, but sometimes she felt like she was just a little girl after all.

Handmade Swords - The Watchman Son’s Sword
- Maker & Copyright: David DelaGardelle of Cedarlore Forge
- Fantasy/Gothic Oakeshott Type XVa
The Watchman Son’s Sword is a Fantasy/Gothic piece with some historical inspiration taken from a few different 15th-16th century German Oakeshott Type XVa longswords.
The goal in the finishing work with its textures, materials, and decoration being an exploration in late Medieval ornamentation styles.
The blade is forged and ground from high carbon 1075 steel, lightly antique “blued” and hand surface engraved. The fittings are forge blackened steel, and the grip and scabbard is highly antiqued cherry wood.
