Xtabay 💀🗿 Age: 700 years old Origin: Yucatán, Mexico. " When she was a teenager, Xtabay was known as "the sinner" due to her ease in falling in love, although people respected her for taking care of the sick and vulnerable. Her sister, Utz-Colel, was very appreciated and respected by others although she had a very rigid interior and was incapable of loving. When Xtabay died, her tomb was surrounded by fragrant scents and flowers, one of which stood out the most: the Xtabentún flower that gave off a sweet smell, as sweet as this woman was in life. This filled Utz-Colel and when she died a terrible smell emanated from her body and her tomb only sprouted the Tzacam flower, a spiny cactus which hurt those who touched it. As revenge, Utz-Colel returned from eternity imitating the sweetness of her sister, seducing the men and travellers who ventured along the roads of the Mayab at night. She waited for them, entwining her long black hair with a piece of Tzacam, seated at the foot of a ceiba tree attracting those who crossed her path with sweet songs and phrases, only to later finish them off. This gave origin to the legend of Xtabay." . . . #MonstersVacation #Xtabay #Yucatan #Maya #leyendamaya #historiasdeterror #mexicanlegend #leyendasymitosdemexico #halloween #DayOfTheDead #bruja #horrormovie #cosplay #halloweencosplay #instahorror #GrandRivieraPrincess #FamilyClub #GrandSunsetPrincess #diademuertos

"The legend of the cempasuchil" Xóchitl and Huitzilin were united by love since they were little. They always shared games and walks around the town. The legend says that every afternoon they went up to the mountain dedicated to Tonatiuh, the Aztec god of the sun. At each visit they placed bouquets of flowers. In that place was where they swore to love each other forever under any circumstance, even death. One day, the war arrived and Huitzilin, as a good warrior, had to separate from his beloved to defend the Aztec lands. After a while, Xóchitl received the news that his partner had died. Deep in pain, the beautiful woman asked the god Tonatiuh to free her from her suffering and reunite her with her beloved. The god of the sun, grateful for the offerings that the young people took to his mountain, decided to fulfill the request: he let his rays fall on Xóchitl, at the moment when his skin lit up, the girl transformed into a yellow flower intense, like the light of the sun itself. A few minutes later, a hummingbird perched in the center of the flower. History tells us that it was the reincarnation of Huitzilin, so, when making contact with the plant, it opened its 20 petals releasing an intense aroma. Following the order of Tonatiuh, the love of the two young Aztecs will remain as long as there are hummingbirds and cempasuchil flowers (cempoal-xochitl, twenty-flower) in the Mexican fields. #mexicanlife #mexicanlegend #mx #legend #flowers #cempasuchil #mexico #yellow #nature #aztec #aztecgod #culture #twenty #flowerfield #green #love #mountain
La leyenda de la llorona: The legend of the Weeping Woman 👧🏽👦🏽👻😭 . . “The Mexican legend goes that in a rural village of Mexico there lived a young woman named Maria. Maria came from a poor family but was known around her village for her beauty. One day, an extremely wealthy nobleman traveled through her village but stopped in his tracks when he saw Maria. Maria was charmed by him and he was charmed by her beauty, so when he proposed to her, she immediately accepted. Maria's family were thrilled that she was marrying into a wealthy family, but the nobleman's father was extremely disappointed he was marrying into poverty. Maria and her new husband built a house in the village to be away from his disapproving father. Eventually Maria gave birth to twins a boy and a girl, but her husband was always traveling and stopped spending time with his family. When he came home, he only paid attention to the children and Maria knew her husband was falling out of love with her. One day, he left and never returned. Years later, as Maria and her twins were walking by a river, she saw a familiar carriage with a younger, beautiful woman next to her husband. Maria was so angry and confused that, without thinking, she picked up her two children and threw them into the river, drowning them. Only after she saw their bodies floating in the river did she realize what she had done and then she jumped into the river hoping to die with her children. Now she spends eternity looking for her children around that river. It is said that if you hear her crying, you are to run the opposite way. If you hear her cries, they could bring misfortune or even death. Also, if you are a child, be extra careful, because La Llorona is attracted to children, thinking they are hers. Since she thinks children are hers, she tries to drown them. Children should not walk alone around this river, just in case.” . #aymishijos #halloween #lallorona #weepingwoman #river #legend #folklore #mexico #mexicanlegend #barbie #madetomove #kelly #doll #dollstagram #dollsofinstagram #dollphotography
Día 9: "Mira Tata, mis dientes" 😺❤🎃 Éste es el segundo inktober en el que participo, así que a disfrutar el recorrido 🖤🖤🖤 Mañana les dejo la leyenda 👀 Mi bisabuela solía contarme de una experiencia que tuvieron mi bisabuelo Fortino y su compañero de juerga 👀 Solía decir que ése hombre tenía una frustración bastante grande por no haber podido tener hijos, recriminando a su esposa a diario por no darle descendencia, volcandose en el alcohol. Una noche, ambos fueron a tomar a "La antigua Paz" una taberna bastante famosa y antigua en Chihuahua; toda la noche se pasó lamentando no tener hijos y Fortino ya cansado de escucharle, se fue a casa, dejándolo regresar solo. Después de un rato caminando, escuchó los gritos de su compañero: Dijo que caminando, escuchó el llanto de un bebé; intrigado siguió el sonido hasta encontrar a la criatura envuelto en un rebozo, tirado en la calle. Profundamente conmovido, pensó en llevarselo a su esposa y criarlo como propio... Hasta que escuchó a mitad de camino cómo los llantos se volvían risas, cargadas de malicia; descubrió lentamente a la criatura y una voz gutural le dijo: "Mira Tata, mis dientes" Según describió el hombre, ésa criatura no era humana, Tenía largos colmillos como una bestia y empezó a transformarse frente a sus ojos, en un demonio, saliendo alimañas de entre la tela. Según me contaba, el hombre jamás volvió a lamentarse y vivió el resto de su vida en sobriedad, gracias a la temible experiencia. No, no dejaré de hacer las ilustraciones/pinturas 3d digitales 👩🎨 La temática será historias y leyendas urbanas 👀💀👀 Que bellas historias me contaban 🖤👩🎨 . .

The past three days and we’re a week into #inktober
! (I am not happy with today’s piece so I left it out. 😅 Eyeless Jack- a young man with no eyes who wanders around stealing kidneys to eat. Usually carries a scalpel. Chupacabra- stands for “sucks goat”, because this creature usually sucks the blood of the goats and is a legend within Hispanic culture. Dracula- a vampire who leaves bite marks on victims necks. And doesn’t sparkle. Edward Mordrake- a young man with a disfigured face on the back of his head that whispered obscenities. He committed suicide in his twenties. #eyelessjack #creepypasta
