On the heels of the success of the Autism Speaks signing promotion, Melanie Iglesias revisits SlickforceStudio, this time to raise money for Toys for Tots. She gives her fans one week to order her life-size “Bedtime with Teddy” posters, and she personalizes each one, just in time for the holidays.
An extremely special thanks goes out to the Melanie Iglesias Store team, who handled hundreds of orders and worked tirelessly to insure Christmas delivery. To learn more, visit MelanieIglesiasStore.com.
Thank you all for your incredible support this year. None of this would be possible without you. Wishing each of you peace, love, and happiness during this holiday season and beyond. Merry Christmas, everyone!

This week, the Combs family released their debut Christmas portrait. Each family member looked extra sharp in their all black-and-white ensemble, making for both a classic and a classy holiday memory. A very special thank you to Kala Faulkner, Jennifer Stith, and Sean “Diddy” Combs and family for allowing me to capture this special moment, and to the amazing Slickforce team for their quick on-set maneuvering and support. Here’s a sneak peak behind-the-scenes. Merry Christmas, everyone!

In November, SlickforceGirl made its debut public appearance at Stan Lee’s Comikaze in Los Angeles. Our heroes Air Force Airman Erika and Indian Princess Ayanna turned out to meet fans and educate a curious audience on what SlickforceGirl is all about.
Here’s a backstage look at the exciting 3-day convention. Order your Limited Edition SlickforceGirl Comikaze Exclusive Collector’s T-Shirts and Posters here. Special thanks to models Erika Medina and Ayanna Jordan for their energy and enthusiasm, and to the amazing SlickforceStudio support team for orchestrating the appearance!
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!
