SlickforceGirl Goes to Comikaze

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!

SlickforceGirl Touches Down in Afghanistan

In early December, the SlickforceGirl team reached out to several battalions of deployed U.S. troops overseas to find out what items they needed in the field. Our team put together more than a dozen care packages and shipped them out just before Christmas. Over the last few weeks, we’ve begun to receive confirmations of package arrivals in various destinations—many of them delivered by helicopter to the most remote of locations—including this photo from an undisclosed Air Force base in Afghanistan. It shows Airman Amico and two of his fellow airmen, cheered on by SlickforceGirl Erika.

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to the men and women who risk their lives everyday for others. Your bravery in the most dangerous situations continues to inspire us, and it is a sobering reminder of just how many freedoms we take for granted as civilians. Be safe, and we wish you a speedy journey home.
