Where Is Everything?
As I write this the new site is still not launched. But today a decision was made to get rid of 70% of the products we carry on Vampfangs. You might ask. Why in the world would you want to do that?!!!
The answer is quite simple. Over the past few years only 30% of the items we offered on Vampfangs actually sold consistently. We found that overloading our customers with too many choices let to a poor site experience. Some customers loved that we carried pretty much everything, some did not.
I’ll give an example. We carried 10 different types of stage blood. 10! We carried all of the industry standard bloods like Mehron and Graftobian, Kryolan and a few others. The logic was easy on this one. Tinsley who makes the best blood on the market and who is a friend of Vampfangs truly does make the best of the best. So why carry the others? Choosing blood should be simple. Light, dark, drying or gel. No need to complicate it with a ton of brands.
Let me be clear about something. Our decision to shed many of these brands had nothing to do with their quality or products. Some of them I am actually kinda heartbroken about parting ways. Companies that we have been operating with for 20 plus years.
This sounds sad. Why are you doing this again?
Vampfangs has always been about using our experience in the make-up industry to bring you the best of the best. Providing what you NEED to make the ultimate costume or look. And I think for a few years we lost focus on that. We specialize in teeth and eyes… did we really need to offer the naughty nurse outfit with leather whip? Probably not lol.
We really hope you enjoy the new lean, mean version of Vampfangs!
