Mashup Mondays: Star Wars

Mashup Mondays Header

What better time to enjoy Poptropica than now? In all seriousness, in the middle of this pandemic, stay safe and stay home! If you’re trying to pass the time, try watching some Star Wars movies, play Poptropica, or if you’re adventurous…combine both! I just finished The Mandalorian, and I have to say baby Yoda is, in fact, extremely cute. Anyway, get ready for some awesome art, costumes, and other Pop Wars trivia. 😉


Art

Spy Wars

First up is this art piece by Cuddly Knuckle, as shown in Spotted Dragon’s Community Creations on the Poptropica Help Blog! The theme for the month was crossovers, so it fit perfectly for a Star Wars and Poptropica mashup. Go check her post out!

Mashup Mondays: Toy Story

mashup-mondays-header

*gasp* Is this is a post? Yes, yes it is. If you remember my last post, I said “So this brings up the question: what’s going to happen to the PTFP? I don’t know. I’m never going to delete it, but I’m not sure if I’ll post again. I could post a week from now if I felt like it, or this could be it. It depends.”

Well, it’s a Monday. Toy Story 4 is out (with a 98% Rotten Tomatoes rating). I love art. I still love Poptropica in its own way. So I decided: why not make a post if I’ll have fun? So we’re bringing out the ol’ Toy Story mashed with Poptropica! I could edit this to the extreme like I used to, but I think that’s part of what made me tired of posting. I want to be genuine, to be me. So there might be mistakes or awkward wording, but the point is to have fun! Let’s get to it!


Toy Story and Poptropica’s History

Oddly enough, there have been lots of Toy Story ads on Poptropica, but not much documentation. Apparently, in 2010 there was a Toy Story/Toy Story 2 DVD ad, but I can only find this Answers.com question and this YouTube video as evidence (thanks to the person who recorded this, who is 9 years older now, which is weird to think about):

The ad consisted of a crane machine game, and the prizes were a Toy Alien costume, a Buzz Lightyear costume, and an army men effect card. According to the Answers.com response, there was a “Jenny” costume as well, but that’s not a Toy Story character, so perhaps they meant Jessie. Who knows.

Now, also in 2010, there was also a Toy Story 3 ad, which did release that year in theaters. This time, there’s better documentation, but still only one post describing it that I can find on Icy Comet’s Blog (wow, that brings back memories!). The costumes, with credit to the post and blog of course, looked like this:

Mashup Mondays: MLP Friendship is Magic

I know what you’re thinking…wasn’t this series dead?! No…well, maybe… Anyway, it’s back! This week’s mashup was suggested by Purple Claw on the last Mashup Mondays about Supernatural. If you don’t know what MLP stands for, this post is about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Also, happy Memorial Day!


Art

The first piece of art we have is by ihmps6p07 on deviantArt, named “MLP: Poptropica Artists from MLP“! They turned Poptropica artists that also draw MLP into ponies themselves:

Other Poptropica/MLP artists include PerfectLightningDeeJay-RosiettaANNE14TCO,  TechnoBunny16, and SuperGrape1. Here are their works, respectively:

Even though these are only their MLP examples, these artists have plenty of Poptropica art, too. Also, click the images to see their links and their full size!


Costumes

I’m just putting a disclaimer right here that this section is going to be huge. Why? Because a certain MLP and Poptropica fan made a ton of potential costumes for a My Little Pony Island! Technically these are artworks, but I figured that since they’re meant to be costumes, they can go in this section. Here they are:

Mashup Mondays: Supernatural

mashup-mondays-header

It’s been awhile, but another Mashup Mondays is here! This time it’s on one of my personal favorite TV shows: Supernatural. Although, it’s rated TV-14, so make sure to get your parents permission first to watch it! Along with this post, I’m hoping to make a news one and maybe another random one soon. 😉 Also, there are some creature spoilers.


Direct Creations

I’ve found a couple of creations directly related to Supernatural, but there are plenty that indirectly relate too! Seriously, from Greek mythology to vampires and wraiths, the show has it all. Here they are:

To the left is a motivational poster made by 1313cookie (better known as Brave Tomato) on DeviantArt. Make sure to read the description or else you might not get the reference! To the right is Castiel, a character from Supernatural, on the Poptropica Fashion Wiki. Pretty good if I say so myself!

Mashup Mondays: Frozen

mashup-mondays-header

Let it go, let it go, can’t hold it back anymore… Unless you were born today, you’ve probably heard about Disney’s Frozen, possibly now one of Disney’s most iconic modern movies. I mean, we’re still hearing about it in 2016 from over 3 years ago! There’s that, and plus it is winter, so what could be better?


Extra Creations

Sometimes there’s such a variety of fan creations, it can’t be put into one category. Well, we have a piece of art, YouTube video, and Realms! First up is a EPoptropica version of Elsa drawn by TamamoMae:

It looks pretty cool! I think the eyeshadow was a nice touch. Next is a Realms creation with Frozen’s Elsa and Anna in multiple costumes (thanks to the PHB)!

I’ve always liked what Anna wears better than Elsa; I like blue, but not too much blue. Lastly, a YouTube video by Sienna Nading that smooths right into the next section, showing how to make an Elsa costume:

Great video, Sienna!
