Penguinate.com going to Ogden UnCon June 7 to 9, 2019

Booth set up for Lilac City Comicon

Penguinate.com is going to Ogden UnCon in Utah from June 7 to 9, 2019! We’re bringing penguins, posters and books, and our proposal for the panel “The Haunted Mansion: 50 Years of Creativity” was accepted!

The guest list includes Toby Stephens from “Black Sails” and “Lost in Space” (2018), Naomi Grossman from “American Horror Story,” and Sophia the robot, the world’s first artificial intelligent citizen. Fans of Sid and Marty Krofft’s “Land of the Lost” will be able to meet the stars of the show from the mid-1970s; Phil Paley (Cha-Ka), Kathy Coleman (Holly) and Wesley Hure (Will) are all scheduled to be in Ogden.

Chris Kattan is scheduled to be at Ogden UnCon. (The Saturday Night Live Alum and star of “Corky Romano” is also scheduled for Lilac City Comicon 2019; I hope he doesn’t think we’re stalking him! Maybe we can carpool.)

Organized by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop participant Russ Adams, Ogden UnCon is set up to be an unconventional and untamed con experience. Many activities will take place late into the night with some scheduled for 24 hours of con-goer participation. As with any convention, guests and panels are subject to change. Get your tickets to Ogden UnCon.

Lilac City Comicon 2019: The Hottest Ticket this year!

Booth set up for Lilac City Comicon

Lilac City Comicon 2019 will be on June 1 and 2, 2019 at the Spokane Convention center, and penguinate.com will be there again! Our second year will be bigger and better with your participation. “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity” is scheduled to be released for the convention, and I am scheduled to give a presentation during the weekend focused on the information in my book – “The Haunted Mansion: 50 Years of Creativity.”

My presentation doesn’t have to be your main reason for going. You might also go because you love our penguins and want to pick one up from the artist herself! Join our Patreon and you’ll get an amazing discount on all your penguinate.com table purchases. (Preorder page will be posted shortly, but if you want to reserve your penguin or have one made for in time for the convention, contact us; you’ll get convention prices and skip the postage costs!) Or maybe you just want to get a Russian lobby card (mini movie poster) of a favorite movie.

Nathan O’Brien and his team have lined up some amazing stars, including Jon Heder and Chris Kattan. I’m super excited about seeing Hacksaw Jim Duggan! HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Randy Havens from “Stranger Things” and Falk Hentschel from DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” are also scheduled to appear. As at any comic convention, guests are subject to change due to acting schedules and for other reasons.

Lilac City Comicon 2019 is already shaping up to be one of the hottest tickets for this year. We look forward to seeing you there! Penguinate.com is one of many sponsors for Lilac City Comicon 2019. Be sure to preorder your penguinate.com items!
