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.

There are two new costumes available: Water Fight and Water Battle! The costumes are perfect for summer’s most competitive game – water balloons. It’s a high risk, high reward brawl and your opponents would be irritated to see you come out of it still looking fresh as can be.

 

Water Fight and Water Battle costumes

 

The Water Fight costume is a laid back surfer look. The boardshorts and matching tank and sunglasses are a cool combo!  Fun sunglasses are IN right now! Of course, the costume wouldn’t be complete without a water cannon.

Water Battle is another outfit curated with water balloon games in mind! The costume includes a lush head of curls, round sunnies, a pink swimsuit, and water blaster. Be ready to take on your friends at any time with your blaster, balloon battles are no joke!

The polls are open! Vote for next month's Cabin of Curiosities' contents! ✅

Ahoy, Poptropicans!

 

November’s contest has proved (yet again!) to be a difficult decision – thank you so much for all of your amazing design submissions! This round of costume designs are especially exciting this month as the Baron’s hiatus is coming to an end! Before you know it, the sky pirate will be returning to Home Island for her monthly visit. The jury is still out on November’s winners, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for any upcoming announcements and the compilation vid of all players’ designs!

 

As always, the Baron never arrives empty handed. Every month, Amelia’s friend-turned-foe touches down and opens her pop up shop containing the contest’s winning costume and older merch from Pop’s past! It’s a grand occasion for everyone involved.

 

However, because the sky pirate is a fleeting force, the Baron’s inventory is only available for a limited time. Unfortunately for some, if you miss out on the Baron’s stay, you’d miss your chance at securing that month’s exclusive items.

 

Until now…

 

 

If you weren’t able to catch one (or all) of the Baron’s pop-ups, it’s your lucky day! As a fun experiment, all players have the chance to vote for which costumes they’d like to see rereleased in December's Cabin. This is another way for you to get involved!

 

Take a gander at the past winners of the monthly costume contest and cast your vote for which outfits are worthy of a reappearance! Voting will end this upcoming Sunday, November 28th, at 8pm PST. Please submit your votes before then!

You're Invited: NEW Goofy Clubhouse Challenge! 💥🤪🏡

Thought the goofy goodies were only limited to Adventure Outfitters? Think again! As Goofball Island’s release inches closer, we’d like to celebrate by challenging you to a Goofy Clubhouse Challenge!
 

We challenge all Poptropicans to decorate your clubhouses in the goofiest way imaginable! Don’t be afraid to go ALL OUT! If you need a little nudge in getting started, try converting your cottage with crazy combos, clashing decorations, and unexpected placements to get a feel of the challenge. If you’re asking yourself if your cottage is a bit too bizarre, you’re on the right path! The wackier, the better. Do you have decorations that you’ve thought were too weird or would look out of place? This is the perfect time to pull those out of your inventory!

 

As a reward for your silly transformations, the 3 most outrageous clubhouses will receive an awesome credit bonus that can be spent in Adventure Outfitters, the Baron’s Cabin of Curiosities, or the clubhouse store! To enter, please use the submissions page to submit a short video of your clubhouse or send us your account username so we can check out your bizarro arrangements ourselves! The Goofy Clubhouse Challenge will last exactly 1 week, and will end on Monday, November 22nd, at 8pm PST.

 

BUUUUUT, don’t forget about November’s ongoing costume contest! This month’s costume contest ends this Friday, November 19th, at 8pm PST. Create (draw, sketch, paint, etc.) and submit your original outfit designs for the chance to be one of the select few players that have won their costume and art in the game. Click the link above for all contest details or click here to see past submission reels, winners, and more!

 

Good luck, everyone!
