I’ve scheduled quite a few appointments and am looking forward to seeing what the folks at Mezco Toyz, Super7, DC Direct, Diamond Select, McFarlane Toys, NECA and Funko have in store for us. You’re going to want to tune into our Official Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see all of the awesome as fast as we do.

Back in September, I helped share the news that the Goth Subculture website would be facing an inevitable sunset (discussed HERE). Today, that dawn has come and the popular social network has ended. Below the grim graphic you can find the official statement from management.

vampirefreaks rest in peace

The Statement:
The Vampirefreaks Social Network is officially laid to rest.
We had an amazing 20+ year run and I’ll be forever grateful for the experience. To the many people who have reached out to us and expressed their gratitude and shared their VF stories – it really means a lot.

These past few days have been really emotional and i’ve shed quite a few tears about it. It’s been so great seeing everyone come together the final days for one last hurrah. VF touched so many people’s lives and I know I can’t take credit what it became, it was an accumulation of all the members worldwide who made this place their home.
