Despite a bit of inactivity in the first couple of weeks in December on the Creators’ Blog, there have been three posts in the past four days! The two subjects? Wimpy Wonderland Island and the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest.
If you’ve read our post about some upcoming “very interesting stuff,” then you’ve probably wondered, like most of us, exactly what that meant. Well, it seems as if it was about the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest (although I was slightly hoping for news about the ‘New Poptropica’). But, who knows, maybe something will be announced tomorrow on New Year’s Day! 😉
First of all, like the image above shows, today was supposed to be the last day for entering your costume, but it’s been extended to the second of January! A little gift from Poptropica, I suppose. Although, that’s not even the fun part.
There will be 2 grand prize winners! That means not just one, but two Poptropicans will get a 6-month membership, and — to me, most excitingly — their costume will be able to be purchased from the Store! Along with all these great goodies, it will be featured on Home Island on one of the Poptropicans.
We get to vote on costumes! Yes, you read that right. There will be 20 costumes that we can vote on, and the 10 with the most votes will win. The prizes of being one of the runner-ups are nearly just as good; you get a 3-month membership and your costume will still be available in the Store later in 2017!
Good luck, Poptropicans!
Wimpy Wonderland Peeks
If you’re interested in what goes on behind the scenes of islands, here’s another batch of some animations and drawings, this time of Wimpy Wonderland! Since it’s one of December’s IOTMs, it’s fitting, and what’s more, it will still be open to everyone until January 2nd! I don’t know about you, but does it seem like a lot of important things are ending the second? Why the second, when Wimpy Wonderland is featured as a December island? Maybe there will be an update that day…or the day after…hmm. Still, here are some of the behind the scenes peeks:
This animation is of Greg and Rodrick, the two feuding brothers:
The second is of Manny, with an animation and notes on his design:
Last is an animation of the silly but relatable Rowley:
That’s all so far! Happy New Year, everyone!
