NEW Monthly Costume Contests Are Hereee! ?

Top of the morning to ya, Poptropicans!

The Creators’ Team is delighted to see all your enthusiasm and creative ideas that you’ve been sharing with the community lately! In fact, we can’t get enough.

We’ve had a special project in the works for a while now that’s finally ready to be revealed… Without further ado, ALL Poptropicans are invited to participate in the monthly costume contest!!


Monthly Costume Contest


If you'd like to see YOUR IDEA in the Poptropica store, *this* is the way to do it! Do you wish you could match your favorite outfit with your Popsona? Do you fantasize about streetwear?  Maybe you’d love to see some goth gear?


In the past, our official costume contests were held occasionally. This time, we’re reviving the costume competition to continue on a monthly basis, to give you the opportunity to turn your designs into a reality, visibly contribute to the game itself, and most importantly, share your ideas to millions across the community! 


Your costume submission should be original!

  • Get creative! Look for inspiration in your favorite looks that you can put your own spin on! From TV/film, magazines, your personal wishlist outfits, career uniforms, and celebrity sightings, you can find express your individuality through just about anything! 
  • Costumes may also include accessories and special powers.
  • While designing your entry, be sure it can be reproduced as a Poptropica Costume. Avoid including tiny details would be hard to recreate and using previous store costumes. Where’s the fun in that?


The monthly costume contest will close in 2 weeks, on Monday, June 7th at 8pm PST! Enter your costume creations via our submissions page! Be sure to include your Poptropican’s name and your login username. Please be aware that there is a three entry maximum per person each month. The winning costume will be available to all players upon its release! 


Share your costume design on Instagram after entering the contest from the submissions page! Use #MyPoptropicaCostume and tag us @poptropicacreators so others can see your work!



Don’t hesitate to leave any questions or comments about the costume contest below! Good luck all – can’t wait to see what you put down the runway!

Can the winners at least get their own costumes if they're non members?

May 24, 2021 pm31 3:24 pm

The winning costume will be available to all players! :)

Are you GEAR like the fan artist?
If so, YOU ARE SO GOOD! Your drawings look exactly like something from Poptropica! You should work for them one day!

Smart IcicleMay 24, 2021 pm31 3:47 pm

Hi! I was just wondering when are the fanfic challenge winners going to be released. Also this looks like fun.

May 24, 2021 pm31 3:57 pm

We got a bunch of submissions for the fanfic challenge that we're reading through, so no definitive release just yet! Thanks for your patience! :)

anonymousMay 24, 2021 pm31 3:47 pm

Hi, when are the winners of the fairy tale contest going to be announced?

May 24, 2021 pm31 4:06 pm

Hey there! We got quite a few fanfic submissions for our last challenge, so the announcement does not have a set date yet. We're reading through all of them, and we will update everyone when we are closer to finishing all submissions. Thanks for checking in :)

Happy LizardMay 24, 2021 pm31 5:15 pm

I hope the squirrel outfit wins.

sockbucketfranceJune 6, 2021 am30 1:49 am

we all know what you did.

Cool cometMay 24, 2021 pm31 7:51 pm

So we can send more than one each week?

May 25, 2021 am31 1:41 am

The costume contest will continue on an ongoing, monthly basis. Players may submit 3 entries for each month's 2 week submission period. Hope that helps!

Invisible RingMay 24, 2021 pm31 9:16 pm

Super cool! I almost forgot about the old costume contests! This is gonna be great! One thing though, can we PLEASE have a winning costume that won't mess up your signature hair and skin color this time? Thanks!

Mad PawMay 25, 2021 pm31 1:49 pm

I agree

Invisible RingMay 24, 2021 pm31 9:17 pm

In case anyone is wondering what I'm talking about, the last winning costume was the lightning wielder. That was the one where your skin and hair color changed when you push the button.

Mad PawMay 25, 2021 pm31 1:50 pm

You hardly see yourself though :/

Fierce RingMay 25, 2021 am31 12:23 am

Can it just be any costume, or does it have to be something specific? And will they cost a lot of money because I only have like 75 credits. I'm entering and I'm so excited!

Magic CoyoteMay 25, 2021 am31 8:25 am

I know exactly what ima do to make my popsona more me

Incredible StarMay 25, 2021 am31 10:14 am

I am so happy mine might come in too

Y e a hMay 25, 2021 am31 11:04 am

Hey Poptropica! Do you read the submissions? Is it ok that I sent a second one because I wanted to add the power(s)?

May 27, 2021 pm31 1:58 pm

We do read the submissions! And yep, that's fine! Thanks for entering :-)

AnonymousJune 1, 2021 am30 11:33 am

You read the submissions? Could’ve fooled me...

OliviaMay 25, 2021 am31 11:53 am

I'm glad Poptropica still exists and is doing some cool new things! I've been a player for over 10 years now and it's been sad to see the old islands go (will they be back?) but it's cool that now there are ways to stay unvolved outside the game.

AlieJune 2, 2021 pm30 1:26 pm

Can we have matching outfits to go with themes and islands to go in the poptropica island store? ( Maybe we can also add matching pets to go with it! )

Mad PawMay 25, 2021 pm31 1:51 pm

So, um can we design the costume in any way?

May 26, 2021 pm31 3:54 pm

Sure, as long as it's age appropriate. Bonus points for creativity and originality! :)

Wild DragonMay 25, 2021 pm31 6:59 pm

My parents don't allow me on Instagram. Do I HAVE to post?

May 26, 2021 pm31 3:52 pm

Nope, IG is optional! To enter, please submit via the submissions page!

anonymousJune 1, 2021 pm30 4:22 pm

I'm guessing it's going to be a draw. Even though you commented that the next time there's a challenge, it's not going to be a pool, it would be the first time you kept your promise if you were serious.?

Friendly RockJune 3, 2021 pm30 7:54 pm

HELP ME!!! i have more than 1 part of my entry so i need to submit 9 more pictures but theres only 1 picture per entry and there's only 3 entry per month please HELP ME!!!

LivJune 4, 2021 am30 9:50 am

LivJune 4, 2021 am30 9:52 am

NeatSingerJune 8, 2021 pm30 2:20 pm

So I submitted my design but I forgot to put my Poptropican's name.... Does my costume still have a chance to be selected? I entered my username, but again, forgot my Poptropican's name.

June 8, 2021 pm30 5:49 pm

Of course, that won't impact your chances! No harm, no foul. 

NeatSingerJune 15, 2021 pm30 6:08 pm

Okay, thanks! :) Also, do you know when and how we will get the results for the contest?

January 14, 2022 pm31 12:28 pm

The winning design will be announced on the blog before the costume is available in game! The Baron usually visits at the beginning of each month, so you'll be able to buy the free costume then :-)

Fun personJune 13, 2021 pm30 1:53 pm

I hope mine wins, I worked for a whole month on it! I didn't finish it in time for last month's costume contest but I just did!
