The Story/La Leyenda
Legend has it that in October of 1942, a small village, near Salvatierra Guanajuato, experienced one of the most horrific quinceañeras recorded to this day.
Marisela was a humble girl, she helped her mom and dad with household chores, and most importantly she was a studious student at the top of her class.
When her parents decided to throw a party for her quince años, she resisted.
Knowing that it would be a financial burden on the family, all she really wanted was for her parents to save money so that she could one day afford an education in a big city.
Against Marisela’s wishes, her parents picked out a venue, they booked the most popular band in the city, purchased the most beautiful dress in the market, and had all of the village people pitch in for the biggest pot of mole known in Guanajuato history.
When young Marisela found out about her parent’s plans, she locked herself in her room for days. Her parents would knock on her door and scream “¡Marisela abre esta pinche puerta!”
She would answer, “todo está bien, me estoy preparando para mi gran día.”
When her Quinceañera finally arrived, she stepped out of her room wearing her dress. She walked up to her parents and with a grin, said “estoy lista.”
The night was just how her parents had planned. Family and friends greeted Marisela with lots of gifts. Marisela was obedient to her parents requests the whole night and took photos with distant cousins, and danced with family members she had never met before.
At exactly 10pm a loud shriek was heard from the end of the venue.
“Que me esta pasando?!” yelled one person from another end,
“Mi piel, se me esta callendo” yelled another.

That night Marisela poisoned the Mole with 3 drops of cascabel snake venom, and left the entire village in agony. Today we remember her story and legend as the Zombie Quinceañera.
