Jill the Ripper
By day she was a mild mannered house wife, full of duty for her husband. At night that was when she was something else entirely, a figure in the dark with ill intent stalking the alleyways of London. No one ever suspected it when they met her, the streets are dangerous for women there's a killer on the loose. The ladies of the night would warn her if they saw her alone, but Jill always smiled saying no one wanted to harm a working class lady.
Sometimes one of them would walk with her as there's safety in numbers, often though they ended up in those forboding alleyways. The woman with Jill would often get afraid saying this is where the killer lurks, they should hurry on least they get caught by him. Oh how she was amused at the fear written all over that painted face, Jill would turn to reassure the woman even offering an embrace of comfort.
Those bright eyes were now open wide in terror and confusion, as Jill let her go for her to sink to her knees. During that embrace she had pulled out a knife stabbing her in the base of her spine, while the lady of the night whimpered at the loss of feeling in her legs Jill got to work. Jill was told she couldn't have children, she was told her womb was barren. How she despised these women who sold themselves on street corners for a mere few coppers, she would teach them a lesson and send them a warning. A warning no one will never forget.
You see the killer was never a man, his name was not Jack. She's called Jill, Jill the Ripper.
This is one of the new releases from Barathrum, its called Jill the Ripper and does have thatVictorian feel to it. The dress is mesh and comes both in the striped and none striped versions, it also comes in a variety of colours but of course I chose blue. The glasses, hat and knife are also part of the outfit, so if you like this look go snap it up.
