Costume & Membership Winners!

Hiya, Silver Wolf here with some exciting news! Remember the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest from way, way back (February 8th, actually)? Well, in case you’ve forgotten, these were the Grand Prize costume winners:

Why am I mentioning this, you ask? Maybe because Poptropica gave a sneak peek of the costumes! The post was pretty cryptic, though, only saying this:

Costume contest winners are dropping soon in Poptropica Worlds and Poptropica Original! Stay tuned for these exciting outfits…

No date or even hint? Also, in case you haven’t noticed, posts are no longer by Skinny Moon, so the style is pretty different. I’m not much of a fan with the new changes… After all, we’re not getting a connection to the author anymore. If you didn’t see, these are what the costumes look like currently:

MPC 3

It looks like the most changes came to the Ocean Princess costume, especially when it comes to the “boy” version, and it lost some of the glow effects. I think they could have just changed the colors, but whatever. 😛 The costume also comes with a trident, which wasn’t part of the original. I have to say, though, the Hip Hop Boy costume is pretty spot-on.


Those aren’t the only recent winners announced, however. Recently there was a membership contest for Poptropica’s 10th birthday. All you had to do was create a unique island that had a birthday cake, parrotfish, and color green included. All ten winners got a 1-month membership for their amazing submission! These submissions included (click images for full size):

Costume Wonderland!

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.


#MyPoptropicaCostume Updates

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.

stuffThere 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:

Pets, IOTM, & More

A lot has happened on Poptropica since our last update. The spookiness of Halloween has ended, but Thanksgiving is next! And then, of course, some awesome winter holidays. 😉 As for Mashup Mondays, there will be a post this Monday, so keep an eye out! I probably won’t be able to keep up a steady flow of them, but I’ll try. I also have some other surprises up my sleeve… Anyway, let’s get on to the post!


Islands of the Month

It’s a new month, which means new Islands of the Month (IOTM)! This time, the islands of the month are… Shrink Ray and Poptropolis Games! If you want handy-dandy written guides, just click those links. Otherwise, you can always watch Captain Crawfish’s video walkthroughs:

Remember that if it’s your first time completing them, you get 500 credits! If you’ve played them before, you get 300! Those will add up, especially for all the fall outfits they’ve been releasing…

Happy (Almost) Halloween!

cropped-halloween-2016.png

Our new spooky (spoopy?) header!

Poptropica is already in the Halloween spirit! And so am I, actually. From zombies to fairies, Halloween is all about dressing up (and maybe about getting candy, too). That’s why the first piece of news is…


Poppy Puppet Costumes

I might just have to do a Gender Glitch for this one because both of these costumes look really cool. Of course, it’s limited time, so get it as soon as possible! It’s 400 credits for non-members, and, as always, free for members.

If you’re low on credits, you can always spin the spinnew…Halloween Spinning Wheel! Yep, it’s fully Halloweenified with fall colors, cobwebs, spooky spiders, and jack-o-lanterns.

Also, the Poptropica Help Blog is having its annual Halloween contest! If you dress up in a Halloween costume or fall-related costume and win, the Creators are giving a 1-month membership to all the winners!

Halloween Photo Contest Winners!

zomberryboogy

Happy (fashionably late) Halloween Poptropicans! Did you go trick-or-treating? 🙂

Anyway, the winner’s of the Creators’ Photo Booth Contest are here!

Best Costume – Golden Typhoon

Best Costume Contest

Golden Typhoon didn’t just make a great werewolf costume — she also posed it mid-transformation for a dramatic photo. Look how the other wolves are welcoming the newest member of their pack! Creepy!

Best Halloween Party – Speedy Knuckle

Best Halloween Party Contest

Judging by the entries we received in this category, Poptropicans know how to get down! Please invite us to all of your future parties. Our winner was Speedy Knuckle, whose composition and character poses made for a rockin’ good time.

Funniest Photo – Tall Kid

Funniest Photo Contest

Tons of hilarious entries in this category. In the end, we had to give the top spot to Tall Kid, who gave us three monsters (and two bats) chasing a poor Poptropican in a hot dog costume. We always knew that would get you in the end.

Most Creative Photo – Smart Glove

Most Creative Photo Contest

Every photo we got was creative. Smart Glove zoomed out to show Halloween from a perspective we hadn’t really seen before.

Scariest Photo – Maroon Bird

Scariest Photo Contest

The Jersey Devil found his way into a lot of the scariest photos, but it was Maroon Bird’s contribution to the Slenderman tale that earned top honors in this category.

To the winners and runner-ups: congrats! I’m sure that even if you didn’t win, your entry was spooktacular. 😉

So what did you guys dress up as this year? Share your Halloween stories below!

Behind the Scenes Videos, Popstorms, & More

Hey guys! We are a bit behind, but I will try my best to share major updates.

There have been a ton of new Mystery of the Map pages, so be sure to check out the Poptropica Creators’ Blog to catch up on the story. There have been 31 pages already!

The Creators’ Inside Poptropica Playlist has also been updated. The new videos include remarkable realm tours, a zombie dance, and more.

Moving on, PopStorm 16 and 17 have been released.

16 is a Poptropican styled bug battle and 17 shows some girls with curls.

Hmm… what else is there…? Oh yes! If you haven’t heard of this dressgate thing, you probably have disconnected from the world for a while. Thankfully the hype of this black and blue/white and gold dress has gone down. If you went onto Poptropica during all the chaos, you may have got a few cool costumes.

dressgate

Of course the dress isn’t the only thing Poptropicans are fangirling over. The Creators recently released a few sneak peeks for the last Arabian Knights episode… specifically images of a very sad looking princess.

Many theories have already been popping up. So what do you think the island’s future will hold?

Hopefully these updates have officially caught everyone up! 🙂

App Update, GHDI, & More

Hiya, Silver Wolf here! It’s been 12 days since our last post (sorry about that), but we have some more to come: Your Poptropica account on the app, Galactic Hot Dogs, Biome Hats… Keep reading to find out more. 😉

Galactic Hot Dogs Island Guide

So, Captain Crawfish posted his new video walkthrough for Galactic Hot Dogs Island! Hopefully we’ll have our own written guide up soon, but until then, here’s the video walkthrough for you to use:

I haven’t played it yet, but I’ve read a couple of comics that they released, and it seems really cool! Especially Humphree. I feel like Humphree would be a good person to make a meme out of…

Poptropica Account on the Official App?

A recent tweet by Poptropica Worldwide gives more than enough evidence that at sometime later this year, we may just be seeing the official Poptropica app…with our online accounts on it! You can see the conversation here:

App Accounts

I’m super excited for this! It was one of the main reasons the app didn’t appeal to me as much as the online version. But what I am wondering is how we’re going to be playing on the app when all the islands haven’t been released on it yet… Hmm… But still, it’s (most likely) coming out really soon! Thanks Gooy55! Also, don’t forget to follow our own Twitter! We’ve been posting more than just blog posts there lately. 😉
