Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con is on June 14 to 16 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and penguinate.com will be there! While we’re still awaiting word on panels. You can be sure that we will be bring our cosplaying penguins, books and posters to the convention. Join our Patreon at www.patreon.com/penguinate, and you can get $1 off for every $10 you spend at our table.
My wife handmakes the penguins and their outfits, so we won’t know exactly who will be available until days before the con. Watch her Instagram feed or join our Facebook page to see the latest penguins. If there’s one you like, you can preorder to make sure that you get it before anyone else grabs it. Because these penguins are unique, once they’re sold, they’re gone. Don’t worry too much though; if you’re willing to wait for a handmade penguin, we can take orders at the convention.
Do you love Disneyland? Do you wish you were more creative? I will be bringing books that address those two things and more. “Disneyland Is Creativity” and “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity” use the structure and history of their subject to illuminate principles of creativity while you tour through the park or attraction. I also plan on having the Adventures on the Amur series and the Penguinate! series on hand. And if you’re a fan of 90’s pop culture, you’ll want to grab a copy of “The Pirate Union.” Want to make sure you get your book and we don’t sell out? Preorder here.
Penguin motivational posters, Russian lobby cards, and prints of now gone Disneyland Resort details will also be available. Offerings are subject to change. We look forward to seeing you in Vegas!
We are super excited to be going to Ogden UnCon with our books and penguins. From June 7 to 9, we will be in Ogden celebrating pop culture with a few thousand of our closest friends.
Our penguins love to cosplay. (Penguin stock may vary based on availability.) My wife handcrafts beautiful stuffed penguins in two styles. The original penguins feature yellow bills and orange feet. Our black and white penguins are made from faux snow leopard fur and have either fuzzy or shiny feet. Penguins come with or without costumes, have their own names and include a passport. The eyes are hand embroidered, which makes every one unique. Come meet our penguins. For every one we sell, we will donate $1 to the Global Penguin Society. (Check out photos at our Instagram and on our website.) If you don’t see the penguin you want, you’ll be able to place an order.
As part of the event, I am scheduled to present “The Haunted Mansion: 50 Years of Creativity.” Focusing on the development, history and structure of the beloved Disneyland attraction, guests at my panel will be given a tour of the classic Haunted Mansion, which will be related to tips on how to become more creative. My book “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity” is scheduled to be released on June 1, 2019 and should be available at Ogden UnCon. My other books, including “Disneyland Is Creativity” will be on hand while supplies last.
For people who are looking for wall displays, we have a few penguin motivational and other posters. Collectors may want to inquire about our Russian lobby cards featuring movies from the last couple of years. These lobby cards are like mini-movie posters.

At our table, we will not only have books by Shad Engkilterra but we will also have Author Brian C. Baer signing copies of his books. A recognized expert in “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe,” his exploration of “How He-Man Mastered the Universe is an enlightening and interesting piece on a cartoon that had greater influence on the future than anyone realizes. His fictional work, “Bad Publicity” is a supernatural noir detective novel and a fun read. His books will be available throughout the convention, and there may be a chapbook “I Haunt the Spaceship” available! Times are yet to be determined for his signing. (This is subject to change depending on Baer’s availability.)

In case you haven’t heard, “There Are No Penguins in Alaska,” and I wrote the book on it. Penguins, polar bears and Eskimos all live in colder climates, so many people come to Alaska expecting to see penguins! However, there are no penguins in Alaska.
If you would like to know what kinds of animals live in Alaska, my children’s story, featuring the drawings of Antonisa Scott and Oscar Feliz of Transcend Studio, talks about bears, sea life, birds and more while imploring the reader to remember that there are no penguins in Alaska. It’s available on Kindle for preorder and will be delivered Feb 28, 2019. You can preorder a hard copy coloring book here at penguinate.com!
Alaska is a beautiful country with wonderful summers and long, dark winters. To experience it fully, you really need to live there. If that doesn’t appeal to you now, after going through this coloring book, it may, especially if you have an irrational fear of flightless birds because there are no penguins in Alaska. Get your copy ordered today!
Going to Lilac City Comicon 2019 is exciting. You get to meet guests like
Jon Heder, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and Chris Kattan, and there are plenty of fan items that you can’t get easily anywhere else. If you want to get the most out of your #LCCC2019 experience, now is the time to start, and preordering is a part of the process. How does preordering help you?
Stretch Your Budget
If you’re like most people, you have a monthly budget that includes a little bit of discretionary spending. Often, it’s difficult to save this money, and you may find that you’ve spent it on coffee, music downloads, or something else you don’t really need. By preordering items for #LCCC2019, you’ll be able to take that discretionary spending money and turn it into shopping surprises at the comicon!
Get Your Items
For a business that makes handmade items like penguinate.com, you can order special-made items to match your tastes and fandom. If you like a particular Power Ranger, Pirate of the Caribbean, Doctor Who or are a member of another fandom, preordering allows you to get the penguin cosplaying in a way you want.
Preordering also ensures that if something gets sold out, you won’t miss out. Your items will be waiting for you at our booth, and you won’t have to miss out on the hottest items available.
Enjoy Convention Pricing
When you preorder, you still get convention pricing. This means that you’ll get our best price. You don’t have to worry about shipping and handling charges because you’re picking it up. Be sure to get your Lilac City Comicon 2019 VIP tickets first, and then place your order for stuffed penguins, The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity and other books, motivational posters and pictures.
