This is a small scene from the Whitechapel murders which took place during the autumn of 1888. The Whitechapel murderer, or Jack the Ripper was real, but with the public and Hollywood interest in the crimes, he has become almost a classic monster. The scene is, of course, not historically accurate. There are many ideas of what the so-called Jack the Ripper looked like, and this is simply one of them. I decided to use Mary Kelly as the victim, even though I do not think she was one of the canonical victims of the murderer. You will note Jack has a knife as well as an ax. Kelly was the only victim where the police think an ax or hatchet was used during the murder.
Hope you enjoy the scene and feel free to comment, I am always open to constructive criticism.
About this creation
OK, I like the Jack Mini Fig and the lamps, the rest of this blows!
Dem Notes: Again we see where Dem Bones tried the finger over the flash technique to get some mood lighting. Man o man, when are we going to get Photoshop? Now, just out of curiosity, what the hell are those red studs on the wall supposed to be? Focusing seems to have been a challenge for my creator back then as well.

oooh.... very nice. I believe it was the queens closest advisor, was it not? very good job, bones.
No, it was not. You are mixing fact and fiction. No one knows who the Whitechapple killer was. Jack the Ripper is a name invented by the media of the day and it stuck. Thanks for the comment, this poor excuse for a moc is all lonely in the dustbin of Dem Bones.

Cool I like stories about real people like this and sweeny Todd and Vlad Dracul. Hey you should do sweeny Todd next that or that one countess that the fiction version of Dracul was based on can't remember her name right now but if you look up vlad Dracul on wiki you can probably find her. Also Alan Moore did a comic on Jack the Ripper I never read it but people say it's good. the name would get blocked from MOC pages but look up Alan Moore on Amazon and it should come up there.
