August's Costume Contest Begins In... 3, 2, 1! 🎨

It’s that time again! 🥳

 

Not only does the Airship’s recent return to Home Island signal freebies and new items, but it also marks the start of another contest round. Let August’s costume contest commence!

 

At the beginning of every month, you’re invited to showcase your costume designs and art! These monthly contests offer all players (of any skill set) the opportunity to see your dream outfits become a reality in Poptropica! Yep, you heard that right. Your costume idea could be the next design created in-game and shared among millions across the Pop community! ✨

 

 

August’s costume contest will be open for two weeks, until Friday, August 26th at 8pm PST (9pm MST, 10pm CST, 11pm EST, or use a time zone converter).

 

Monthly Costume Contest

 

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! 🧐

 

Keep in mind, you have free reign over your design! You can opt for island inspired clothing or go in a completely different direction. Are you in love with wacky, mysterious, otherworldly, fantasy, simple, or just downright weird costumes? Are you hoping to see the latest fashion trends?

 

Perhaps you’d like to share your favorite IRL outfit with players? Are you excited by the thought of sharing your costume designs and art on a larger scale? Do you have an eye for streetwear, goth gear, or are you in love with cottage-core clothes? Maybe you have a quirky sense of style that you think others haven’t seen before?

 

Don’t worry if you prefer to march to the beat of your own drum. Creativity and originality are always appreciated! 

 

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!

 

If you need a nudge in the right direction to get started, check out previous month’s submission videos on our Youtube channel! Take a peek at July’s entire lineup of player-designed costumes! 👇

 

 

Good luck, everyone! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the contest, don’t hesitate to drop them below! We can’t wait to see what you dream up! 🤩

November’s costume contest begins in 3… 2… 1…

WOW! The Baron’s month long stay during Red October was so much fun! Between the Cabin’s free Halloween costumes, the Baron’s Crusade side quest, and Red October takeover on Home Island, last month was definitely one for the books! However, because the Baron and her Airship had an extended stay throughout October, our favorite sky pirate is taking some time away from Poptropica to spend some quality time with her friends and family. Who can blame her?

 

Sooooo, in preparation of the Baron’s return in December, the entire Poptropica community is invited to participate in November’s costume contest! 🤩

 

Monthly Costume Contest

 

Do you dream about streetwear or the latest trends? Have you ever tried to match your Popsona IRL but couldn’t’ find the right clothes? Maybe you have a unique style that you think others woud like! Are you excited by the chance to share your costume designs with millions in the Poptropica community? The monthly costume contests are an opportunity for players to turn their costume creations into a reality and get involved in the game! Don’t fret if you’re not one to stay up to date with the latest styles. Your costume designs can be whacky, mysterious, simple, otherworldly, or downright weird! No matter what category yours falls under, we’d love to your original ideas.

 

November’s costume contest will take place today through November 19th at 8pm PST! That’s two weeks from now! Enter your costume designs through the submissions page by the deadline on 11/19.

Alternatively, you can 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! If you post your designs on Instagram, please send us the link to your post through the submissions page!

 

After the contest closes, the art team will be selecting 1 winning costume that will be available for free to all players! When the Baron returns in December, visit the Airship’s Cabin of Curiosities to score the free, player-designed costume!

 

Your costume submission should be original!

  • Get creative! Look for inspiration in your favorite looks that you can put your own spin on. Consider looks that you like from TV/film, magazines, personal wish-list outfits, career uniforms, or celebrity sightings –  you can 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 or using previous store costumes. Where’s the fun in that?

 

As a surprise, November’s contest round will also be the first time players have the chance to vote for which returning items from Poptropica’s past they’d like to see! The archived items with the most votes will be available in the Airship’s Cabin of Curiosities throughout the Baron’s stay. We’ll be filling you in with the specifics when the voting period begins, but we’re stocked to try something new!
