What’s Crackin, Guys?

Hey, guys.

Now you see I’m new to this blog. So let me tell you a bit about myself.

My name is DJVampiGamer, but I like to go by Vampi for short. I’m a 14-year-old guy who lives in Texas (yee-haw!), an avid Poptropican who likes to make a whole bunch of references to things most people don’t know about (the title of this post being one of them), and I’m just an all-around random guy. I run Trusty Bear’s Poptropica Hotspot, my personal Poptropica blog; Vampi’s Gaming Haven, where I post non-Poptropica related walkthroughs, gaming news, and more; and Vampi’s Anime News, where I talk about the latest news in anime.

If you ever feel like wanting to get in touch with me, here’s a list of my social media accounts and communication sevices:

  • Twitter: @DJVampiStep
  • Discord: DJVampi#0148
  • Skype: theathenaspawnergaming
  • Gmail: samconry42@gmail.com

I’m always checking Discord and Twitter, periodically Skype and Gmail, but if you see DJVampi or Vampinyl anywhere, just stop and say hi!

And as I always say on the TBPH: keep poppin’ it!

Mashup Mondays: How to Train Your Dragon

mashup-mondays-header

Yep, it’s this time again! Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of How to Train Your Dragon 1 and 2, some of the most popular kids’ movies to date. There isn’t any art for this (sadly), but there are costumes, ads, and some dragons in Poptropica itself!


Costumes

I’ve only found two costumes for How to Train Your Dragon, but I think they’re really good! Both are from the Poptropica Help Blog on their Costumes page of Hiccup and Astrid in the movie. If you can’t find it, try pressing ctrl and ‘f’ at the same time, then search the names in the search bar at the top right. Here they are:

I like how they both give off a Viking feel but their costumes still vary quite a bit. I especially like Astrid’s axe. Make sure to click the link for instructions on how to make the costumes yourself.

Mashup Mondays: Steven Universe

This post was written by Noveen, a Poptropica community member.

mashup-mondays-header

Over the course of 3 years, Steven Universe has taken the world by storm! Of course, this means it’s worked its way into the Poptropica community. Many of our fellow Poptropicans are great Steven Universe fans and have incorporated it into the game’s media. It also has various LGBT characters, inspiring many. Here’s a compilation of some of their works!


Fanart

Master Pinpey has drawn several works connecting Steven Universe and Poptropica. The first of these is a short animation redrawing of a Peridot quote in Poptropica style. The second work, to the right, is a gorgeous Poptropica rendition of Steven Universe’s very own Rose Quartz!

While there are several Poptropica/Steven Universe mashups, there’s also Steven Universe fanart drawn by well-known Poptropica artists. Here’s a stunning painting of Amethyst drawn by Criaha. The coloring is just breathtaking:

(Silver Wolf: TC has been wanting this post for awhile. Well, here it is! I thought the drawing was still worth a mention since you love SU so much. 😉 )

Mashup Mondays: Doctor Who

mashup-mondays-header

The Doctor is in! Who? The Doctor! For this week’s Mashup Mondays, there isn’t any fan art, but I’ll try to make up for it with more costumes and a longer Bits & Pieces! Since the Costumes section is so big with photos, it will go at the end.


Bits & Pieces

If you know what Doctor Who is, then you would know it is all about time travel. So, what better island to bring up than Time Tangled? Now, Time Tangled may not have a cool — definitely not conspicuous — phone booth to travel in, but it does have a Time Device you can use! The first stop is (with photos from the ATP)…

poptropica tti 9Ancient Greece: In Poptropica, Ancient Greece is as far back as you can go. In Doctor Who…not so much. You can also speak to an oracle, who gives advice from the gods. Well, in a Doctor Who novel, “The Slitheen Excursion,” the Doctor goes to Ancient Greece, and it seems like gods are visiting them; well, they’re actually aliens! Yes, it’s an odd show.

The Vikings: In Poptropica, the Vikings ask you to get an amulet for them. Most likely, in the real Viking era, they wouldn’t have been so friendly, as in “The Girl Who Died.” Instead, the Vikings capture the Doctor, and they only escape by the appearance of Odin.

Leonardo da Vinci: Just as you meet Leonardo da Vinci in Poptropica, the Doctor meets him several times, and the Mona Lisa comes up many times, including the Doctor writing “This is fake” on copies and it being based on a companion! Continue reading

New Author!

shaky-skunk-2Hey, guys! I’m Shaky Skunk, the newest author!

I’m 14 years old, my favourite island is Red Dragon Island, and this post was meant to be written 2 days ago.

I’m also the founder of the Poptropica Skunk Blog, so you can check it out if you’d like.

I can’t think of anything else to write. You kind of run out of ideas after working on 10 blogs…

PTFP Villain Showdown: You Voted, ___ Won

The end has come, Poptropicans…

blog

I’m not even gonna bother with making the post unnecessary long to build up suspense, let’s just get straight to the point. The winner is…

BLACK WIDOW!

Surprising, am I right? No, lol, so many people love Black Widow, I’m one of those people. Even though I must admit, I didn’t actually ever vote throughout this entire contest, and trust me, I did not rig the votes, I repeat, I did not rig the votes.

Now you want proof? Well, you’ll just have to trust me on that, but here’s proof that BW actually won.

Sorry Dr. Hare, you were only one point behind!

By one mere point, lucky her. I’d like to thank everyone who voted, cause of no one did the polls, this series wouldn’t have existed for very long.

But that brings us to the question: what will I post about now since the Villain Showdown has officially ended? I’ll be explaining what will happen with that sometime in the next couple weeks, I need some time to think.

It’s over, isn’t it, isn’t it, isn’t it over? It’s over, isn’t it, isn’t it, isn’t it over? BW won, and you chose her, and I thanked you, the series is gone. It’s over, isn’t it, what do I post about now?

Mashup Mondays: Gravity Falls

Mashup Mondays Header

This week’s Mashup was suggested by Purple Claw!

Now, I know Gravity Falls has a big place in many Poptropicans’ hearts… That’s why I wanted to take all that fondness and put it into one post! There are a lot of costumes for this one, along with some Gravity Falls art made by community members. Let’s get to it!


Fanart

Made by mrmeepjeep, Poptropica community members have been drawn as Gravity Falls characters, known as #PoptropicaFalls:

To the left, you can see a drawing of Small Fire, and to the right, a drawing of Ylimegirl in Gravity Falls form! Pretty cool! Known as Abel Hackney on YouTube, they also made a video of a speed drawing of Tall Cactus for #PoptropicaFalls:

Now, these are just little bonuses, but some Gravity Falls art alone has been made by some Poptropica community members:

Gravity Falls Season 1 cover art was made by TheKeystone (HPuterpop), and an artwork by SydVC (Spotted Dragon) was made of an important scene with Mabel.
