September's Halloween-Themed Costume Contest Is Underway! ??
Halloween is almost upon us, Poptropicans!
In preparation of October’s Airship, this month’s costume contest kicks off Poptropica’s huge eerie-sistable celebration!
Last year, the Baron’s Red October event supplied plenty of spooky spirit throughout the month. On the Airship, six player-designed costumes (the most ever!) were recreated in-game and offered to all players for free!
This year, the festivities continue! Designs submitted in this month’s contest will have the chance to be a part of the Airship’s special Halloween haul. Submit your costume designs by Monday, September 26th at 8pm PST (9pm MST, 10pm CST, 11pm EST) to join this month’s Halloween costume pool. Let’s get this party startled! ?
How do you enter?
First things first, brainstorm ideas for your costume. Costumes should be original, reproducible and age appropriate. There is also a 3 entry maximum per month.
Once you have your outfit ideas, the next step is to draw them out! You can do this on paper or go the digital route to show off your designs. Don’t worry about comparing yourself to the rest of the community. Differences in art skill will not affect your likelihood of being chosen. Go all out with it! The Team loves seeing your imagination and creativity!
Once you’ve finished drawing your outfit designs, the final step is to share them with us! The easiest way is to enter through the submissions page. Submit your designs one at a time, but be sure to include your Poptropican’s name and your login username with each entry.
If you’re on social media, you can also share your costume design on Instagram for others to see your idea! Remember to tag us (@poptropicacreators) and use the hashtag #MyPoptropicaCostume – we’ll repost your costume design to our story to share your work!
NOTE: Please submit your designs one at a time, as multiple attachments will not be received. Each month, a handful of players’ entries are received without any attached files. If you’re unsure if your image was successfully included, feel free to resubmit!
To start brainstorming your outfit designs, here are a few tips!
Remember, you have free reign over your design! Do you want your costume to be frightening, fabulous, creepy, cute, or even match your Halloween ‘fit IRL? Whether you have a quirky sense of style or if you’re a proud trendsetter, creativity and originality are always appreciated! Any idea can be a winner! ?
Keep these tips in mind as you’re designing your outfit:
- 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.
Don't be discouraged if your design hasn’t been chosen in the past! We’re blown away by the incredible amount of creativity and unique costume designs each month. We wish they could all be winners! We always welcome players to resubmit past design submissions or come up with new costume ideas for each month's contest!
Best of luck, everyone! Don’t hesitate to leave any questions or comments about the contest below. We’re eager to see what you put down the runway! ??
