This week, our beautiful and talented friend Melanie Iglesias debuted her 5th television series, MTV’s “Off the Bat”. The Slickforce team is so proud of our rapidly rising starlet, and to celebrate, we are announcing pre-orders for Part 2 of the Pure Mel collector’s poster series.
Pure Mel part 1 has consistently been one of our best-sellers in the Melanie Iglesias Store, with nearly 50% of posters sales coming from Mel’s growing female audience. It’s a look at Ms. Iglesias in a rare new and natural light, without the glitz and glam of the studio.
The team just keeps getting stronger! In this video, travel to a remote location for a behind-the-scenes look at our SlickforceGirl shoot with the stunning Ayanna Jordan. She embraces the Indian Princess role wholeheartedly, and keeps the crew laughing along the way. My thanks to the lovely Ms. Jordan for her devotion to the SlickforceGirl campaign. Order your Limited Edition Princess Ayanna posters here. A portion of proceeds from poster sales are donated to the Breast Cancer Charities of America’s iGoPink campaign.
Over the summer, Melanie Iglesias came by SlickforceStudio for fun and spontaneous shoot. One of the images spawned from that shoot was Mel’s Ice Cream Disaster, which went viral almost immediately after it was announced.
This video takes you behind-the-scenes at our second poster release, and this time Mel arrives life-sized, from head to toe. Melanie’s interaction with the teddy bear certainly deserves an award, we’re just not sure which one. Think of this as our version of Tom Hanks and Wilson in CastAway.
Order your “Bedtime with Teddy” 24×69 door/wall poster at MelanieIglesiasStore.com and SaglimbeniStore.com. Orders for AUTOGRAPHED posters placed by this Thursday, December 12 at midnight, will receive FREE personalization while Melanie is in town visiting her store. Post pictures of you with the poster and tag #LifesizeMel.
I’ve always felt that art should be displayed as large as possible. It’s a form of exhibition that has become even more rare in our current era, where most pictures never get bigger than Instagram size, only to be replaced seconds later with something newer. Large format allows the viewer to become immersed in the fantasy.
With the recent explosion of the Melanie Iglesias Store, I had an idea to print an image of Mel at her actual height. Aside from the sheer resolution concerns, we only found a handful of printers who could print a large volume of posters at over five-and-a-half feet tall each. We ultimately went with Ferrante & Associates, who I must say did a spectacular job of printing our starlet. Last week, our first pallet of Melanie’s life-size “Bedtime with Teddy” posters arrived via truck and forklift. And they are truly a sight that one must appreciate up close.
You asked for it—you got it. True 100% scale life-size Melanie Iglesias, right in your room. Order your “Bedtime with Teddy” 24×69 door/wall poster at MelanieIglesiasStore.com and SaglimbeniStore.com. Post pictures of Mel in your room and tag #LifesizeMel for a chance to win a personalized poster!

In early November, SlickforceGirl made its first public appearance at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Convention in Los Angeles. We commemorated this special occasion with the release of our sixth SlickforceGirl, Ayanna. Our resident Indian Princess might be the most petite of our heroes, but consider this fair warning that looks can absolutely be deceiving. Though not much is known about Ayanna’s abilities, rumors of mysticism and magic are enough to keep us on her good side.
Collect Princess Ayanna’s Limited Edition 11×17 poster, along with our other heroes, at SaglimbeniStore.com. As with the other posters, a portion of your purchase will go to help the fight against breast cancer. Visit SlickforceGirl.com for more info!
Enjoy these behind-the-scenes images of Ayanna’s shoot taken by the amazing Joyce Park!
Triple-threat Nazanin Mandi has made waves in modeling, acting and music, and she’s made it look easy. The starlet and songstress opens up to WMB about her career, her personal life, and the changing voice of Middle Eastern women.
WMB: You started your acting career on wholesome teen shows for Nickelodeon. But recently, we’ve seen your shoots getting much sexier. Explain the process of going from rated-G to NC-17?
Nazanin Mandi: [laughs] I’m evolving into the person I’ve always wanted to be. I’m finally comfortable with my sexuality, and I’ve also accepted that there is always a class way to do things. It is possible to be both sexy and classy.
