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:

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):

Happy (Almost) Halloween!

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!

Tip of the Week #1

Hey ‘tropicans! I know I just did a post, but this is something I’ve been planning for a week or two now, and I had to do it 😀

Anyway, since this is Poptropica Tips, I’m going to give out weekly tips. If you have an idea for a tip, or if you need a tip for something, let me know at trustybiker031(AT)gmail(DOT)com!


So, when you’re in Wimpy Wonderland, and you have to eat the watercress salad, that part’s really hard. I could never get past it. Until, by chance, I opened a new tab while I was in that minigame. I come back a couple seconds later, and the game was done. I had won! And it was all because I opened that new tab!

Note: This may not work on some browsers/computers. 

The Tip of the Week is: While in Wimpy Wonderland Island, and you’re trying to get past the watercress salad mini-game, open a new tab, wait five seconds, come back, and you should have won the game!


 

Well, did that help? Let me know in the comments if it did!

So I’m going to try *insert more emphasis here* to tell you guys the top 10 finishers of each island when they release, since most of my New Year’s Resolutions have to do with helping out on the blog more, but I can’t promise anything. 😉 But anyway, here are the top 10 finishers of GHDI:

Quick! Take a Selfie! Comics, Realms, & More

Of course, the Creators want to give us a happy holiday!

happy holidays

Hehehe, I love the GHD ship in the background.

Dr. Lange also felt the need to make a tribute to the PHB. It’s pretty impressive, so you might want to check it out!

Anyway, we also have some behind the scenes images to share. First up, “a paused project….

bts comic

Well, it looks like a comic to promote an island, such as the Virus Hunter: Pandemic Panic series. For what island, I’m not sure.

Next up, a sneak peek that seems to be for the Poptropica Comic Island.

poptropica realmsThe red lines seem to be the platforms that we can walk on.

The Creators also shared this Poptropica Realms sneak peek (on the right).

“Just grabbed from a Poptropica Creator’s computer when she snuck out to do some shopping.”

I personally can’t wait for Poptropica Realms! 😛

Lastly, The Creators wanted to share six Poptropica selfies of 2014.

Cute. 😛 That’s it for now! Happy holidays everyone!

Wishlists, Fat Cats, Aliens, & More!

Hey guys! More Twitter updates, like usual. First up, we thought that Arabian Nights was going to come out for members yesterday, but it did not. Apparently, it will now come out for members on December 11 and for everyone on December 30. In the meantime, be sure to check out this behind the scenes look at the episode, including a theory, that I helped to write. 😉

Looks like “The Lair of Thieves” will be the last episode/island to come out in 2014. Which reminds me… It’s time to print out your Poptropica Holiday Wishlist!

wish list

Let’s see… I want… everything of course! 😀

In other news, Pop Storm 7 was recently released. This one depicts some purr-fect kittens. Well, some might say purr-fect, but to be honest they might wanna go on a diet. 😛

Also, now that the Poptropica Comic series is over for this year, there is now a Poptropica Comics App, available in the App Store!

poptropica comics app

Awesome timing, since the Poptropica App itself is finally available for Android devices.

Hmmm… I wonder how the Creators come up with all these wonderful ideas…

google hangout

Oh right… that’s how. XD The Creators recently posted this picture of themselves in a Google Hangout, discussing Common Rooms. Very professional guys. *slow clap* We aren’t exactly sure who is a part of the chat, but we do know “Chris” and “Jeff” (Kinney?) are.

*cough* Anyway… remember how Galactic Hot Dogs is going to soon become an island? Well, the Creators would like some input on one of their designs.

GHD monster eyes

I personally think the Poptropican eyes would look better. I rather see the GHD characters in Poptropica form, for a fresh look. Comment below or go to their post to express your opinions! 🙂

Comics, Apps, & More on Poptropica’s Birthday

Comics, Apps, and Birthday Parties. What could get better? Let’s recap all these important details that makes Poptropica, well, Poptropica — a game full of surprises and plain amazingness.


Poptropica Comics, Week 21

It’s hard to believe that Poptropica Comics has gone on for over 5 months. That’s 147 days! Here’s issue 21, in a slideshow:

Mission Atlantis: Out of the Blue – 99 cents

Mission Atlantis: Out of the Blue is the third and last part of the Mission Atlantis Island series to be released to the public. Out of the Blue has been added to Poptropica’s iOS App, but for a price of U.S.$0.99. Hopefully all the other islands won’t cost 99 cents due to sheer money’s sake, but then again, if we want Poptropica to stay mostly free, some things have to have a cost. 😛 Although, online, Poptropica is still totally free! Make sure to visit our island guide for Mission Atlantis if you get stuck.

You’re on the verge of the greatest discovery in human history — but an ancient intelligence has other plans.


Poptropica Birthday Costume

Poptropica’s going to make you work for the 7th Birthday Limited Edition Poptropica Gold Card, something that can’t be bought, traded, or customized from other players. Instead, you have to pop a specialized birthday balloon in a Poptropica Common Room! Not only do you get to commemorate Poptropica’ 7th Birthday forever with your Backpack, but you can also show it off to other Poptropicans in the Common Rooms and be the “poppiest of Poptropicans“! Remember it’s a Limited Edition costume, so start popping Poptropica’s special 7 Balloon to win your prize! Also, as Black Widow mentions, a brand-new common room may be released to Poptropica very soon. Maybe a new island? Or what about a new Multiverse Room? Is Arabian Nights Island being released sooner than expected? Tell us your theories in the comments!
