Penguinate Table (B91) on Sunday at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2019

Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con

For the last day of Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2019, the Penguinate table will have nine (9) Tiny Avengers to giveaway to the first nine people that come to the table and say “Penguinating is the power of positive creativity.” Be one of the first to make sure you get one of the Avengers in their original Kinder Egg packaging (minus the chocolate egg).

Three of our penguins were adopted on Saturday, so if you know which penguin you want, you should head over to our table and adopt it. Remember every penguin adopted at our table will allow us to donate an additional dollar to the Global Penguin Society.

Our books are still available. Our most popular titles during Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con have been “Disneyland Is Creativity” and “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity.” “The Pirate Union” and its pirates, bureaucracy and comedy from the 1990s was also talked a lot about.

If you want a chapbook of death and ghost-related stories, Brian C. Baer has given us some copies to give away. Just let us know you want one.

Come see us at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con and find out about Russian Lobby Cards for your favorite movies in the last two years. We’re looking forward to an amazing last day!

We will be at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Convention Friday June 14 from 3 pm to 8 pm, Saturday June 15 from 10 am to 7 pm, and on Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. VIPs get in a half hour early. The convention is located in the North Hall 1 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Come down and see us at our table.

Our penguins are the main attraction. These soft, cuddly birds are handmade and hand embroidered. Many of them are dressed in costumes. Adopt a penguin and $1 goes to the Global Penguin Society.

If you like Disneyland, the Haunted Mansion and Creativity, we’ve got books for you. We also have “Adventures on the Amur” for people who like Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, “The Pirate Union” for those who like pirates and dislike bureaucracy, and a coloring book about penguins and Alaska and how there are none in Alaska.

For those seeking posters, you’ll need to ask about our penguin motivational posters. We also have a Disneyland map created to complement the “Disneyland Is Creativity” book. We have several photos from the now defunct Disneyland Twilight Zone Tower of Terror as well as a Bug’s Land photo. Finally, for the movie lover in all of us, there are Russian Lobby Cards, which are basically small versions of the Russian movie posters with additional information and photos on the back. Even if you don’t read Cyrillic, these are great collector’s items featuring movies from the last three years.

If you’re one of the first two people during the day to say “Penguinating is the power of positive creativity,” you’ll get a tiny Avenger prize from the Kinder Egg collection. VIPs, convention employees and volunteers, and Vendors receive $1 off their purchases of $10 or more as long as they remember to tell us and show us the proper credentials.

‘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!

If you find a postcard with a map of Disneyland on the front, you could get a free Russian lobby card and/or a discount at our booth. Just flip the postcard over to see if there’s an offer.

Lilac City Comicon 2019 Wrap up: Pay-It-Forward and Penguin Adoptions

Flopsy Penguin!

Nathan O’Brien and his team put together another great show as fans from Spokane and around the world gathered to celebrate pop culture and comics at Lilac City Comicon 2019. Penguinate.com’s table was a dream, and we were so happy to meet so many new people and see some from the last year we were here.

We had five penguins adopted. Lucky, our smallest penguin went to a home with a little girl and her siblings. Perry, our last book bird, is rumored to be headed to Iceland and then to have a Summer at Sea! GooseBeret found a forever home right here in Spokane, and Donald the Auktioneer, our Pirates of the Caribbean tribute penguin, was plucked from the penguin crowd with few words said.

Perhaps, our best moment of the day was when one of the guests decided to pay-it-forward. He bought a $45 penguin and asked us to give it to the next child who really loved the penguins. A girl showed up at our table twice and was ready to get a penguin, not in costume, when we told her about the pay-it-forward, she was so happy. She picked up Flopsy in the pink bunny outfit and took her home. (Unfortunately, we forgot to attach Flopsy passport, so if she contacts us, we will mail it out.)

I sold five books, and the Russian lobby cards were a big hit this time around. Normally, I would do a “loot” video, but my budget this year was small. I was super excited to get a Chunx from Matt Brazee; these toys are stackable. I picked up Sprocket the Comic-Cat because of Sprocket’s connection to Lilac City Comicon. However, Matt is already on at least his fourth series of Chunx, and they are super cool.

I also picked up the start of a new series, “The Memoirs of Elikai,” by D. Alexander. I haven’t time to read it, yet, but the story is about the struggle between destiny and free will. Give it a shot; it’s always nice to help out a new author and you may find a story that you love.

In case you’re keeping count, we’ve sold eight penguins so far this year. We will be making a donation to the Global Penguin Society of $1 per penguin sold near the end of the month. That means right now, we’ve pledged $8 to save penguins in the Southern Hemisphere and the Galapagos Islands (because that’s the only place in the Northern Hemisphere where penguins are naturally occurring.)
