What did I get from Ogden UnCon? Literally…

If you’re considering organizing a convention, “The Land of the Lost” group was amazingly fun. The stars of the original TV show were upbeat, funny, and brought more to the Ogden UnCon than I thought possible.

‘Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion: 50 Years of Creativity’ at Ogden Uncon and the Penguinate Booth (space 227) on Sunday

Ogden UnCon Thursday Set-up

On the final day of Ogden UnCon 2019, Shad Engkilterra is scheduled to present “Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion: 50 Years of Creativity” in the Ogden Eccles Conference Center Executive Conference Room. Taking a tour through the Haunted Mansion, attendees will get history of the Haunted Mansion and tips on becoming more creative.

At our booth, there will be penguins, books, Buddhas and posters. Our stuffed penguins are handmade with hand-embroidered eyes. Many of them are dressed in costumes; there are pirates, hipsters, BerryBerets and Sally. Jack and Pintel were adopted on Saturday.

Books by Shad Engkilterra and Darren Lamb are ready to be consumed. Shad’s books include “Disneyland Is Creativity,” “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity” and “The Pirate Union” – a rollicking adventure on the high seas sanctioned by the bureaucrats that run the PU. Darren’s books are light with Buddhist philosophy and heavy with tension and action. If you want to live a better adventure, Darren’s stories are a great place to start.

The Buddhas at our table include Yoda Buddha, Mickey Buddha, and Rick Buddha. Embedded in each Buddha is a seed of the Bodhi tree and a dorje, which is a tool used to bring positive energy to life. Strong Jesus and Cthulu Buddy Christ are also available.

Our posters include Penguin Motivational posters and Disneyland photos from The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Bug’s Land. If you need something a little more pop culture, ask to see our comprehensive selection of Russian Lobby Cards featuring movies from the last two years. Priced at a dollar each, these collectibles are ready to take home.

The first three (3) people to come to our booth and say “Penguinating is the power of positive creativity” will get a tiny Avenger!

Author Darren Lamb Part of the fun at Penguinate’s Inaugural Festivities at Ogden UnCon

Lilac City Comicon 2019

Ogden UnCon is in its first year, and we are excited to be a part of it. To celebrate this inaugural event, we’ll have penguins, books, a tiny Avenger giveaway and SLC Author Darren Lamb at our table signing his books. Lamb will be with us at Space 227 from 1 pm to 2 pm on Saturday to personalize his books for you.

Lamb is a former Marine and practicing Buddhist with over 30 years of martial arts training. He uses his life’s experiences and philosophy to create fascinating characters and gripping adventure stories. The truths his novels reveal are often set alongside gore and the human experience. Lamb has also co-written a book with his daughter Rowan. “The Worst Buddhist” is great for parents to read to their children.

His forward to my own book “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity” is as touching and real as it gets. Stop by the Penguinate table at Space 227 and pick up one of his books. We look forward to seeing you there!
