This evening, Kristen Pilgrim, DC actress, friend of mine and one of our prospective Sucker Punched models, wrote a lovely piece about RAINN and the work they do there. She beautifully explained the reason why we support RAINN the best we can. Why did we pick RAINN? I'll let Kristen's words explain

Today we announce model number 12 for Sucker Punched 2! This is our limit if we don't hit our goal of $3000! If we beat that, we've got two models waiting in the wings to sweep in and bring us up to 14!
Amanda Deaton is our next model! Amanda has been a good friend of Abbi's for most of their lives and we're very excited to bring her into this project. She's a wonderful person and a stunningly gorgeous woman. When we launched our Indiegogo campaign, Amanda shared it on her wall with this message attached.
"Here we go: This has been a year of rebuilding, growth, and taking chances. I have delightfully accepted the opportunity to be a part of Sucker Punched 2!
Being a mother of a daughter, life experiences, and the recent happenings with the young ladies in Charlottesville (and others), this is my way of displaying the strength and power that women exude when overcoming pain.
We are not powerless. We are not victims. And we are not weak.
Your donations helps fund the photo session plus a percentage of proceeds goes to a fantastic organization that helps women.
Soooooo, if you want to be a part of this, join in! Share!"
I could not have said it better myself. It is the highest complement of an artist to hear someone explain your message better than you did.
Soooo..... head over to http://igg.me/at/sp2 and become a Sucker Punched 2 backer! Get yourself a piece of this project and join us in making this project as big and as bad ass as it can be.
Taking a break from Sucker Punched 2 business (for a bit), we have images up from Rebecca's red dress shoot! Rebecca was a trooper for us, standing around in a lovely red dress in the chilly Fairfax weather and we can't thank her enough for that. We got some amazing images at the Fairfax County Court House and we had a great time.

Hey folks! Guess what time it is!? Time for another Sucker Punched 2 Casting announcement! Today brings us returning favorite, Princess, portrayed by the raven-haired eternal bad-ass, Sara Hodges. Sara was one of FGP's first regular models, she's a great friend, accomplished fighter and one of the spiritual parents of the whole Sucker Punched project. A dedicated student of action films and ass-kicking, Sara brings with her a profound energy and insight to this endeavor and we are grateful to have her with us.
Would you like to see more of Princess? Would you like to support RAINN and join us in making Bad Ass Art?

This Sunday brings us our 8th Sucker Punched 2 announcement! We'll be shooting with this lovely lady later today, so it seems wildly appropriate that we tell everybody that Rebecca Hausman will be back to play her character, Jade! Rebecca has been a reoccurring model for us, having done SP1, Masque, and as of tonight, Concrete Elegance shoots for us. And can you blame us? She's amazing. Such presence, grace and beauty! We're thrilled she's back with us and we can't wait to debut Jade 2.0
http://igg.me/at/sp2 is where to go for all the details and a huge list of perks to pick from. Don't forget, we're also donating a huge chunk of our budget to RAINN!
Happy Saturday, everybody! Time for another Sucker Punched announcement! Kristen Pilgrim, DC actress, stuntwoman and director is joining us for Sucker Punched 2! I had the pleasure of working with Kristen in Live Action Theatre's "The Tournament" (which was AMAZING!), we had her in studio for a Masque shoot, and I knew I had to invite her to join us in Sucker Punched. She's fantastic and we're glad she's joining us.
http://igg.me/at/sp2 is the place to go! Sign up for the perk of choice and be part of this fantastic project.
Hey everybody! This puts us at the halfway mark for our SP2 casting announcements (not counting our stretch goal models...hint hint). Abbi Lawrence (formerly Shank) is back as Domino! Abbi is one of the founding parents and inner circle of the Sucker Punched team and she's very excited to bring Domino back into the studio. We'll be boosting her outfit and showing off some new tattoos and a fancy new haircut!
http://igg.me/at/sp2 has all the details! Become a Sucker Punched 2 backer, get some awesome perks and support some great causes!

The familiar (and stunning) face of Emily Whitworth graces the next casting announcement for Sucker Punched 2! Emily has been involved in a lot of our projects and we love it! She's fantastic and always brings such a wonderful energy with her. We've got some great ideas on how to upgrade her character, Angel and we're really looking forward to it.
Check out our campaign and become one of our illustrious backers! We've got perks of all levels and they are, in my humble opinion, amazing. Everything from a high five and promotion on our social media platforms all the way up to gorgeous photo books, calenders and posters!
Remember, this project supports local artists, small craftspeople and RAINN. RAINN provides many services to people who have been victims of violence and abuse. They work hard to make this world a better place. I can't imagine a place more in line with the ideas of this project.
And keep your eyes here for tomorrow's casting announcement! 4 down, 8 to go!
Good evening, everybody! And happy election day! Go forth and vote! This evening brings us our third Sucker Punched 2 casting announcement!
Dina Cataldi, Actor is now one of us! We were hoping to get Dina involved last time around, but schedules and funding didn't let that happen. This time, we're making it a priority! Dina has been a good friend of mine and a frequent stage combat workshop buddy. She has a number of huge projects of her own going on, including MMPR (which looks AWESOME!). Check out her work, then hop on over to http://igg.me/at/SP2 and help us get her the finest in gear for her SP2 character!
We're offering some awesome perks in exchange for your support! We've got prints and posters and merch and photo sessions with us! Jump on in, the water's fine!
Happy Mighty Model Monday everybody! (Anything works if it's alliterative!) I do hope everybody is having a smooth start to their week. I'm happy to say we have our 2nd Sucker Punched 2 casting announcement! Fresh back from her oversea adventures in the stunt industry, one of our favorite people and a true badass, Jessi Durham is returning to play the character she did so well the first time, Skye!
For those of you who don't know Jessi, she's a fantastic person, amazing stuntwoman and stunning model. We're thrilled she's back stateside and eager to join us for round 2!
We've got a long way to go in the next 28 days, every contribution counts! Head over to http://igg.me/at/SP2 and sign up today!
Good morning everybody! Happy day after! Whether that is a hangover headache or a sugar headache, I hope it passes quickly and was worth it! I hope everybody had a wonderful, fun filled evening of fantastic costumes and good company.
Speaking of fantastic costumes and good company...we have our first casting announcement! We are proud to let you all know that the beautiful and talented Michele Gagnon, who you may remember from her Masque shoot with us, will be joining our project. Michele is an accomplished dancer, model and some incredibly complicated sounding sort of chemist. She's taking time from her busy schedule to join us in the studio and we are thrilled to have her.
If you want to see Michele decked out in the finest gear and looking incredibly bad ass, please hop on over to our Indiegogo campaign (http://igg.me/at/sp2) and contribute to the cause!
A picture is worth a thousand words. Here are a thousand words about my pictures.
