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!

Timmy Failure Island Prizes Week 2 & Hub Island

Hiya, Silver Wolf here, with some information on this week’s prize until next Thursday, and the new Hub Island! I’ll be giving an overview of Hub Island, but I’ll also give a theory I have about it, which may be completely wishful thinking, or it may lead somewhere.

As said in Brave Sky’s post, every Thursday until Timmy Failure Island’s release (September 17th), you can go on Timmy Failure Island and talk to Timmy to get a prize! This week’s prize is a Polar Bear Gold Card, which you can see to the right.

Hub/Home Island Brief Overview & Theory

Note: this is a brief description and the island guide will be coming soon, along with a guide of Poptropica.

Hub Island Tutorial GuyJust the other day, out of nowhere, Hub Island, or Home Island, was added to the map! Basically, the tutorial section is similar to the beginning island on Poptropica Adventures. You go into the tutorial by talking to the Poptropican in the pilot costume on the bridge.

Wrench LadyYou’ll then be taken to a tutorial, where you find 8 shards scattered throughout the area to form a medallion. Of course, the medallion is yours! While there, you’ll meet a Poptropican that will show you how to customize your character by giving her a wrench.

Outside of the tutorial, you can also enter three buildings, one called “New You” that lets you randomize costumes you can wear and colorize your skin and hair (which didn’t stay for me), another that when entered takes you to the Poptropica Shop, and the last one called “Arcade,” letting you go into the island’s Common Room:

Survival Island Info & Exclusive Sneak Peek

27c32-survival

Most of you probably noticed the Survival Island store items yesterday (Wind Power and a non-uploading card, which you can read about further down; first posted by Pixel), which were accidentally released. But the question is: why did it take hours upon hours for the Creators to decide to take them down? Usually, the items are taken down at most one hour, but these items were not. What happened? No evidence is given, but there are plenty of theories. Besides, how are the items released without being on purpose? It does take programming to release such items at any given time, and it is occurring more often than usual, whether item cards, blog posts, or updates on the homepage of Poptropica. Perhaps it’s not an accident as we suspect. Either way, let’s discuss the island. Here’s the description:

Episode 1: Crash Landing – Members play on 3/20!
Night has fallen and the temperature is dropping. Alone in the forests of the Yukon, you must find a way to build a fire — but time is running out.

Episode 2: Hook, Line and Sinker
With no help in sight, your hunger threatens to overtake you. Can you catch your next meal under the ice — or will you become fish food?

More episodes coming soon!

They’re creating and releasing islands differently now — similar to a TV show series, in fact — and maybe because of the unhappiness with how long the new islands are released apart from one another. I know I’m not too happy about the wait! What they’re doing is releasing islands in parts to reduce the time and make fellow Poptropicans happier and decreasing the impatience. Although, how is the Player Map going to be released?  Is it also going to be in parts, or will they average out the times for all islands and judge that way? Only time will tell. The first “Episode” will be released on March 20th, 2014 (USA) for Members only.

Wind Power2014-03-07_20h38_44What about the Members only items? Well, I can tell you two of the items! The Creators have only released the first item, Wind Power, which you can see to the left (click to zoom in). But what about the other item? It’s not released yet, but the PTFP gets a special look! 🙂 The next item is a…..Ghillie Suit (click to zoom in)! It’s  “a type of camouflage clothing designed to resemble heavy foliage.” ~Google The only way to get this item early was to purchase it yesterday when it was the forever-loading, unknown gold card. Lastly, you can receive the desktop wallpaper and/or printable poster from the island info page.

Are you excited? I know I am! For Non-Members, hopefully you won’t have to wait too long until the island is released to all. Bai!! ~SW out
