Herpy.nu will close down in January 2018 - will be replaced by something new and better.

Herpy has had a good 13 year run and will never be forgotten for those of us who experienced it. Sadly the site is today unappealing and is no longer fit for the audience of 2018, and years of smear campaigns have given us a reputation that has been hard to shake. We therefore made the choice to close the site and move on to a brighter future. While the forums will be archived as a memory of times of past greatness, new funds have been raised and new admins have been recruited to start working on a entire new community far away from Bad Dragon and any association with that company. The gallery will remain operational in the meantime. You can follow me on Twitter for further developments. We also have a Discord server which has become the heart of the community. If you wish to join it, send a PM to Valcyrie.

Herpy have always been my little lovechild since I joined over a decade ago. But he grew up, and as he has aged with dignity its time for his hatchling to take over. A fresh start for a new generation in a new era.

Kind regards,
Valcyrie

Latest post of the previous page:

Aw, I'm sorry to hear that :/ But yes I agree, whenever you buy something goth nowadays its rebranded chinaclones that break after 1 day, and if you want better quality is on the far side of the spectrum, with a dress for like £250 or more. I mean come on, cant there be a middle ground? o.-.o

Suppose it's supply and demand. If you want to be alternative you have to either buy the mass produced stuff that is churned out by mass for your clii-chei of society. Or fork out some serious cash for the artist to spend the time custom making you something... Usually someone like myself who has little money so charges for the time at the highest rate. :/ Although saying that you can get some bargains at conventions as there's more buyers of whatever faction you belong to so they tend to go lower prices to try to sell more. Even the ones who make their own stock.

I've agreed to do a stall at a local creative festival. I've started turning out some more waistcoats and I'm trying to do some designs for T-shirts ATM. So I'll post some more stuff eventually. I'm still surprized that there isn't any fursuit makers on this community yet.

Yeah unfortunately that's not going ahead anymore... :roll:

Anyway I figured I'd do a prototype of an easy to make top hat that I can churn out... Obviously I had to do a scalie one! Image
