Create Your Dream Island runner-up #2

We've announced the grand-prize winner of the Create Your Dream Island contest. To read about the winning entry, Arabian Nights Island, click here.

We're also featuring the 10 runners-up, in alphabetical order. Today's runner-up is:

Fashion Crisis Island, submitted by Elsa W. of Illinois!

The pitch: When you're on Fashion Crisis Island, you must recover a stolen line of clothes for a very famous designer right before an important show.

Why we liked it: Costumizing is one of the most popular things to do on Poptropica, and yet we've never made an Island based entirely around using the Costumizer. Elsa's idea presented a lot of opportunities to let players create new costumes. It was also set in the the 1940s, which we haven't done before, and featured some famous fashion icons as characters.

We asked Elsa, whose avatar name is Bronze Fox, a few questions. Here are her answers.
Poptropica Creators: How did you come up with the idea for your Island?
Elsa: I love fashion, and thought it would be cool to combine that with a mystery/crime for a fun island.
Poptropica Creators: How did you react when you found out you’d won?
Elsa: I was SO happy and couldn't believe it!
Poptropica Creators: How long have you been playing Poptropica?
Elsa: Around 2 years or so.
Poptropica Creators: Which Island is your favorite?
Elsa: I really love Mythology Island!
Poptropica Creators: What 3 things would you want with you on a deserted island?
Elsa: Probably food, tools, and a calm mind.
Nothing about a fancy beachgoing outfit? Well, your calm mind will take you far, Elsa. Thank you for your entry!
