~ SECRET CELEBRATION EMBLEM~
-Wear it on your body, celebrate the mystery party-
In the nineteenth century, a morbid and curious custom has spread to various parts of the world: the photos were ”Post Mortem”.
”Post Mortem” comes from Latin, meaning after death.
The photos ”Post Mortem” apparently originated in England, when Queen Victoria asked to photograph the corpse of an acquaintance or a relative, so she can keep as a souvenir.
soon after, this idea spread around the world, keeping a morbid reminder of loved ones that have passed on.
Even today, as strange as it may seem, some places still have this custom.
The girl who is standing in the photo is the one who is dead.
This is a classic example of photographic art.
Notice the hands
for people wondering how the corpse is standing up, there is a posing stand supporting the body it’s very hard to see but the stand is supporting the neck, arms and back.
the girl in this picture has her eyes open, but in some cases the photographer will paint pupils on the eye lids to make it seem like they are wide awake
Have some historical, non-fiction creepypasta.
I’ve studied about these pictures not too long ago.
One of the reasons they were so popular was that, while protography started to become popular at that time, it was still expensive, and sometimes the families couldn’t pay for take pictures of their children or other relatives often. So, they did it when said people died so, this way, they would have at least one memento of them.
Sometimes, the photos themselves were painted, to make the corpses look a little more “alive”. A lot of manipulation techniques were used.

Alright. I need to get something out here.
You are not any better than anyone else for identifying as something or being born something.
Girls are in no way better than boys. Nonbinary people are no better than girls. It goes the same the other way. I don’t understand why people think it’s okay to belittle people for what they are?
I’ve been bullied and mocked, called a nazi, been bullied for being a lesbian, and treated as an object for being female. And what have I done about it? I haven’t shit on men, Americans, or straight people. I’ve DEALT WITH THE SPECIFIC PEOPLE AND NOT BLAMED AN ENTIRE GROUP FOR A FEW PEOPLE’S SHIT BEHAVIOR.
So please, please treat people how they’re ought to be treated. and recognize them as people and not just their label.
