The 'Jack the Ripper' murders occurred in the East End of London in 1888 and had a huge impact on society as a whole.
So what makes this killer the 'daddy of all serial killers'? After all, the murder spree took place over a hundred and twenty five years ago...
Several factors combined to help make this series of crimes famous all over the world. Not least amongst them was the fact that the newspapers of the day gave a huge amount of coverage to the gruesome crimes and provided their readers with daily updates on them, with the result that Jack the Ripper effectively became a menacing media figure.
Secondly, the area in which the killings occurred was perceived to be a hotbed of vice and villainy, and a breeding ground for social unrest, squalor and disease. The Whitechapel Murderer, in the eyes of the wider Victorian society, came to be seen as the personification of all the evils with which the East End of London was associated.
There was also the name by which the killer came to be known - Jack the Ripper. It was this name that had the effect of turning give sordid East End murders into an international phenomenon and of catapulting the unknown miscreant responsible into the realm of legend.
Of course, the fact that no one has ever identified nor conclusively solved the horrific crimes keeps the legend of Jack the Ripper alive..

This time something more brutal cosplay. During the photo shooting I had the idea to try out red coloured Sorcerer's gloves, as if my hands were smeared with blood... In addition I used Bloodstained Lunatic Noble Mask to increase bloodthirsty effect at second corpse. In scenes in the room with sofas, it was also a coincidence that the lightly dressed girl is now lying dead under the sofa (she was supposed to lie on the sofa, only there was a bug^^). The two policemen also came spontaneously :) First I wanted to do an investigation of "corpses" (after an event at Kestrel Market there are always dead NPC´s left). Unfortunately eager players have revived them (despite request not to do so)...

With my screens I tried to catch a gloomy vibe. I hope you have fun looking at it.

Love the Idea, I would have used some different shades of black tho to give the armor more depth ^^

Thanks for your comment.
I use Shadow Abyss and Shadow Blue. You mean lighter black? I tried that too, like Shadow Yellow, Charred, Murky Grey and so on. I didn't think it was so nice...

Thanks :) That wasn't planned either. I had the idea when I selected pictures for presentation.

You will probably ask the question after I have written my comment :)
This is not an armour presentation, this is, as mentioned in the description, a cosplay (in cosplay you represent a character by costume and behaviour as true to the original as possible). So to enhance effect I use "bloody hands" (other gloves) after the murder. To tell the story, I add two murder victims (the supporting actresses at my story) and just as sporadically two policemen (who only take on the role of extras). And for a policeman I use my "Jack" with another shoulder, trousers in blue color (for 1-2 screens extra special look to design and look for players would be too much effort). Exactly the same with weapons (if cosplay "asks" for a knife, I can't put a staff or GS in my character's hand)...
