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. 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!

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!
After weeks of anticipation and a record number of pre-orders, Melanie Iglesias’ Ice Cream Disaster 24″x36″ Collector’s Wall Posters have finally started shipping. Order yours now at the Melanie Iglesias Store or right here at the Saglimbeni Store.
For those who want a closer look (and really who doesn’t), here is a behind-the-scenes gallery and a video from Melanie’s shoot at SlickforceStudio.
Our good friend Melanie Iglesias embarks visits Los Angeles hotspots to give new viewers a first-hand look at WMB 3D: World’s Most Beautiful. Audience reactions never disappoint, ranging from shock and awe to downright hilarious. See what real viewers had to say in the video above.
This was my first shoot with Melanie Iglesias, for the premiere issue of WMB 3D: World’s Most Beautiful. Glamour is a tricky business, because it’s very easy to fall into the “men’s mag” category. I wanted the glamour in WMB to be as classy as it was sexy.
We found this beautiful mansion in Pasadena; they had all this really great furniture and huge windows. I like to shoot at very slow ISOs, so we augmented all of the natural light with umbrellas and diffusers. For this particular setup, where Melanie is in the chair, I had one diffused umbrella on a 2400w/s pack keying her, and an Octabank outside the window boosting the ambient sun. I was using a lot of fan on this shoot, so I wanted a really fast shutter, but I opted to keep it at 1/125 so we didn’t lose the natural light exposure. Enough of the hair exposure came from the strobes so we didn’t have too much motion blur.
Mel and the whole team did a great job on this shoot, and to this day it’s still our most downloaded gallery on WMB 3D. Enjoy the behind-the-scenes video…we left the original production audio track in for a more authentic shoot experience. Download the FREE WMB 3D here for iPad, iPhone and Android.
