VIDEO: Jessica Burciaga Plays Dirty for SlickforceGirl

Unsurprisingly, the response to our new Desert Mechanic Jessica character has been overwhelmingly positive — roughly 70% excitement and 30% drooling — which we no doubt owe in large part to our beautiful model Jessica Burciaga, who brought this hero to life. To her credit, it was pretty much impossible to make Jess even slightly unattractive, even with mountains of grease and dirt piled on her. She was a trooper ’til the end, so we thought it only fair to give our beloved readers a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this shoot. BTS gallery and final campaign images below.

The response to Chris Williams' Erika piece was through the roof, so we thought you guys might like to take a closer look. Here are the beautiful inks by Jake Isenberg, on top of Chris' pencils. A stunning sight to behold!

VIDEO: SlickforceGirl does Stan Lee’s Comikaze 2014

Hey there, SlickforceGirl fans. I just got this behind-the-scenes video back from our editor and couldn't wait to feature it on the blog. The video is from this year's Stan Lee's Comikaze and, as you can see, we had a total blast hanging out with all of you, and our girls made so many new friends. Looking forward to next year's convention and all the awesome adventures it will bring! Until then, enjoy this backstage-pass video featuring SlickforceGirls Brittany and Erika, as well as artist Corey Knaebel and writer Stephanie Jones.

Comikaze 2014 Cosplay Pics

As most of you probably know by now, Stan Lee's Comikaze was a couple weeks ago at the Los Angeles Convention Center and the turnout was huge! We were lucky enough to have a booth close to the center of the convention this year so that meant a lot of foot traffic. Erika and Brittany were there signing autographs and taking pictures with fans, as well as artist Corey Knaebel.

Needless to say, the whole weekend was a blast and we have the photos to prove it. You can check out our full Comikaze 2014 cosplay and behind-the-scenes photo gallery below. Leave a comment if you stopped by the booth and let us know what you thought of everything. We can't wait to see all of you again next year!
