Buckle up, Poptropicans! The Baron is BACK!! 🏴‍☠️❤️

It’s that time again! Make your way to Home Island and climb aboard the Baron’s Airship to begin another exciting adventure! 🤩


The Baron has returned!


The Baron’s visit is fleeting, so time is of the essence! Before long, the Baron will be back traversing the world on her next big adventure. Accept our infamous guest’s invitation to “get off this dusty rock” and enjoy the splendors of pirate life among Poptropica! Don’t miss out on the Airship’s limited time stay or its on board goodies!


Explore the flying vessel to play the piloting minigame to boost your credits, chat with your fellow Poptropicans on the common room deck, or create your own private party room. And there’s no forgetting one of most exciting things on the Airship –  the Baron’s Cabin of Curiosities! The Cabin is a pop up shop housing the Baron’s collection of top tier treasures available for purchase. Wander around the Cabin and claim your free Shooting Star Hero costume and buy newly unarchived costumes and clubhouse decorations from Poptropica’s past!

You probably noticed a brand-new costume contest promo on the Airship today! If you haven’t, let’s fill you in:


The Baron's Red October costume contest


It’s time for the Baron’s special edition Halloween costume contest! 🎃👻🧛


Because our favorite sky pirate usually returns around the beginning of every month with the previous month’s contest winner, it’s already time to start preparing! The Baron’s Red October Halloween costume contest will have SIX WINNERS chosen from this round of costume entries – all of witch will be available (for FREE!) at the beginning of October!


Get in the spooky spirit and take advantage of this month’s odds! You could be one of 6 chosen to be put into the game! If you’re in need of inspiration, check out last month’s round of costume submissions from the Poptropica community!


The Baron’s Red October costume contest will be open for two weeks and end on Tuesday, September 14th at 8pm PST. Use the submissions portal to enter your designs in the competition for the chance to get your idea into the game through Poptropica's most exclusive store! You can also share your costume design on Instagram. After submitting your design(s) through the submissions page, use the hashtags #MyPoptropicaCostume and #Poptropica and tag us @poptropicacreator! 👀



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? Or do you want to celebrate your favorite holiday in a festive, frightening fit? The costume competition is held 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, your personal wishlist outfits, career uniforms, and celebrity sightings, you can design 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?


Each month's costume contest will be open for 2 weeks! 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.


Don’t hesitate to leave any questions or comments about the contest below. Good luck, Poptropicans – we can’t wait to see what you put down the runway! 👀💃 🕺

Can you update C.J. with purple skin, demon horns, and a demon tail?

Creators, I have an idea to bring back old islands. You can use the new flashpoint software engineers developed and put it in poptropica. Also, you can convert haxe to 2013-15 islands. See you.

Poptropica, can you make all your puns more obvious that they're puns? When you said "all of witch," at first it looked like a typo. Can you put your puns in capital letters or italics so they're easier to catch and makes the reading easier.

Dude, that's what make the puns so poptastic!

anonymousSeptember 1, 2021 pm30 6:01 pm

Well, "dude", I find that all those puns look like typos and make the reading harder. They should use italics or capital letters so we know they're puns and not misspelled words.

Sure thing, not a problem :)

When will Space Island come to Poptropica?

Do you know when the old islands are coming back? I am looking forward to see some nostalgic poptropica with real poptropicans, and everything optropica original. Thankyou

I changed myself to look cute.

I just really want 2 win... Yeaaah.

Heyo, I have some questions I want to ask.

Do you guys allow costumes that have different color schemes to count as part of the same submission? Or do you just count them as seperate submissions?

I also wonder if this applies to male/female/nonbinary counterparts of costumes as well.

For example, I create a male vampire costume. I then decide to make a female counterpart to it as well as a nonbinary one.

Will they be considered as seperate submissions? Or just part of the same submission since they aren't really all that different from each other in terms of design?
