VF name change? April 01, 2015, 03:24:am
Hey guys, so we have some good news and bad news.
The good news is, we’re making pretty good progress on the site redesign, and the 'lunatik' hair dye launch is off to a good start.
The bad news is, we got into some more legal issues after posting the info on our
legal battles regarding lunatik hair dye.
Turns out we said a few things we shouldn’t have and are now facing an expensive court battle regarding trademarks and our use of the ‘vampirefreaks’ name. Plus due to some legal loopholes it looks like we may lose the vampirefreaks.com domain name altogether. We thought about doing a crowdfund campaign to try to pay for our legal fees but decided that in the end it’s easiest to just change the ‘vampirefreaks’ name.
The site will still be around but we are going to have to switch to a new domain name.
Yeah, I know, I’m pretty attached to the ‘vampirefreaks’ name as well, but maybe it will give us a chance to grow and evolve into a better community.
With that said, we’d like you guys to help us choose a new name!
Please comment with name suggestions (it helps if the domain is available), or here are some names we’ve been thinking of, based on some domain names we may have access to. Feel free to vote on a name or comment your suggestions.

Updates:
We had to change our name from 'Asylum' hair dye. As we hinted at earlier, Manic Panic's attorney did indeed contact us on numerous occasions. Unfortunately they went ahead and filed for a number of trademark names and said that we infringe them. They argued that they have a salon called 'style asylum' (which we had never heard of) and that it was a conflict for us to have 'Asylum' hair dye.

May we add that their trademark applications for 'asylum' had just been filed a month before they sent us this letter, and 8 months after we started promoting our 'Asylum' hair dye brand.

They also started questioning us about our private business practices and asking for information they were not entitled to. Then, they sent us a cease-and-desist letter, stating that they had filed to trademark the word 'vampire' and requesting that we

"immediately cease and desist from any and all use of the VAMPIRE FREAKS mark".

Yes, they had the nerve to say we can't use our company name 'vampire freaks' at all anymore.
Which is a company name we've used for 15 years.
Long story short, after much grief and discussions with our lawyer, we decided to change the 'asylum' hair dye name in order to avoid extensive legal battles. We believe we had a very good chance of fighting for the name and keeping it but decided it wasn't worth the time and money it would cost us in legal battles since it is a new product. We held a poll on the 'VampireFreaks' site and the winning name is 'Lunatik'. So we are happy with our new name! Unfortunately this did cause extra delays as we had to update all our artwork and get new packaging labels printed and shipped. As for Manic Panic's request that we no longer use the 'vampire freaks' name, well we basically told them to go fuck themselves.

You can view their all the details with Manic Panic legal correspondence at

Anyway, we are really, really, REALLY sorry for the long wait. It's been a very frustrating journey Good news is YES WE ARE FINALLY SENDING OUT YOUR HAIR DYE!!!!

Thanks again for everyone's support, we love you from the bottom of our hearts. We believe we can bring you a superior quality hair dye, made by fellow freaks and to support the underground. We know it's a few months later than we expected, but we've been working on this hair dye formula for 2 years! Striving for perfection and going through countless revisions with our lab technicians, we're happy to bring you a product we can be proud of.

We are working on bringing it to a store near you! Tell your local stores to contact us and carry our product! ;-) In the meantime you can order directly from us:
