Bedtime with Teddy: The Making of #LifesizeMel


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 and 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.

Melanie Iglesias Store Signing Promotion for Autism Speaks

Nick Saglimbeni and Melanie Iglesias

Last week, Melanie Iglesias dropped by SlickforceStudio to sign her new Ice Cream Disaster posters for the Melanie Iglesias Store. With the recent launch of her new MTV2 shows Guy Court and Girl Code, Mel’s star has been rising faster than ever. She was stunned at the number of posters waiting for her autograph.

Since I first met Melanie at our WMB 3D: World’s Most Beautiful shoot in 2011, she has always looked for ways to give back. Never one to miss an opportunity, Mel announced to her fans that anyone ordering Ice Cream posters in the next 24 hours would not only get them signed but also personalized. Even better, a portion of sales would be donated to Autism Speaks—a charity close to her heart.

What soon followed was the highest traffic day in the history of the Melanie Iglesias Store. Hundreds of orders poured in in a matter of hours, and Mel extended her signing visit an extra day to accommodate all the orders. After signing the last poster, Mel and the team made a sizable donation to Autism Speaks. We are proud to have partnered with such a stellar woman, and are grateful to all the fans who supported our signing promotion.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes video detailing the impressive weekend. Enjoy!
