I wonder what this “Poptropica swag” is? Probably nothing… 🤔 Without further ado, here are the winners!😀

In first place, with her astounding Astro-Knights themed collage is…

maryann-p-collage

…Maryann P.! Congratulations! I hope you enjoy your 6 months of membership.🙂 Here’s what the Creators had to say about her artwork:

“Poptropica is about storytelling. I like that this image tells a story. Plus, the artist did a great job rendering Binary Bard’s universe. It is very rich in detail and perspective, which really stood out to me.”

“Maryann P.’s uses great colors and mood in a nice storytelling format.”

“I like the scale and level of detail!”

In second place, with her detailed drawing of the four main villains is…

crafty-poptropican

…Crafty Poptropican! Wow! I bet it took her a very long time to draw that. Enjoy your three months of membership. Here’s what the Creators had to say about her artwork:

“The appealing, fun colors and character attitudes of Crafty Poptropican’s piece really knock it out of the park.”

“This artist captured 4 of my favorite villains in a fun and creative way. Their use of color and imagery reminded me of the dreams on Super Villain Island.”

“I could see this hanging on a wall.”

Last but not least, in third place, with her PoptropiCon drawing is…

slanted-fish

…Slanted Fish! Enjoy your one month of membership and Poptropica swag! Here’s what the Creators had to say about her artwork:

“I love the action in this image! I also really like how the artist placed some of the avatars outside of the frame. When I look at this I feel like Omegon is just ready to emerge out of the background.”

“Slanted Fish did a great job pushing the action poses and staging the characters in a way that it feels like an epic battle.”

“What an action-packed image! Love the details and colors.”

Congratulations to @yuneiko_, @yazz._.minne, Tiger35767, @smileyfaceorg, Me,@julia_henry_la, Creepy Goose, and Brave Tomato for getting honourable mentions. Although you may not get Poptropica swag, you’ll still get one month of Poptropica membership!

Don’t be upset if you didn’t win – there’s always next year.😉

In other news, Halloween has hit Poptropica, which means there have been some major updates to the store and Home Island!

First of all, the Halloween Photo Booth is up and running. Just look for the witch to start creating your spooky masterpiece.

Being the creative guy I am, I decided to join the fun – I call this one “A Love That Cannot Be“. Don’t judge, my photography skills aren’t that great.😛

Speaking of which, there’s going to be another photo booth contest starting next week. The Creators will randomly pick players’ photos, and award the winners one-month memberships throughout October – they’ll also feature some of their favourite submissions on their social media!

The characters on Home Island have also had a bit of a makeover, as well as some new dialogue!

Eek. DJ Saturday Nite really needs to go lighter, or at least dye her hair back to her natural shade, otherwise, I’ll start mistaking her for Tall Cactus.

Finally, there are some scary new items and costumes in the store. It seems like we’ll be getting some new items next week. Hopefully, they’re better than the Fall Fashion outfits.

What an exciting day! And if that wasn’t enough, Skinny Moon visited the PHC a few hours ago. Until next time…

October’s islands of the month… (And Fail Fashion outfits)

Hey guys, it’s Cycopice. And as you’ve all heard, the Islands of the Month for October are….

Wait for it…

Drumroll please…

Aaaand here they are…

Monster Carnival Island and Mythology Island!

If you don’t know what Islands of the Month is, it’s basically two islands featured that earn you more credits during that month. For first-time finishers, you get 500 credits for playing these two islands, and for repeat-finishers(credits given once for each island only), you get 300 credits. Unfair for old Poptropicans, eh?

I didn’t like either of them. Monster Carnival was too simple(like most SUIs, unfortunately…) and Mythology was too… Uhm, basic I guess? I just didn’t like it. And maybe the Percy Jackson series put me off of Greek Mythology for a while(that series sucks, m8).

To be honest, I was quite surprised.

Since this month’s theme is Halloween (duh.), Monster Carnival was a pretty obvious choice (but they still could have chosen Zomberry, Ghost Story or Vampire’s Curse instead.). But Mythology? Maybe they want to educate little kids more. I don’t know. But still not really a great choice.

Anyway, if you wanna complete the islands, here are the official walkthroughs by Poptropica:

If you prefer a written walkthrough of Monster Carnivalcheck this out!

Anyway, anyone visited the store recently and found something new? I did! The new set of Fall Fashion outfits.

 

Ah yes, they’re very… Interesting, to say  the least.

Only 3 and 4(girls) seem worth buying (out of the girls’ ones). 3 because of the ombre hair, and that top looks slightly interesting, and 4 because of the headphones.

And look out for the new members-only items coming out soon! Unfortunately, I’m not a member. Sad life. Oh, and of course, the new Halloween items that the person in front of the store spoiled for us that are coming out next week! Isn’t that exciting?!

What a spoiler! Shame on her! 

Has everyone made their halloween costumes yet? 😛

Would you buy any of them? Leave your opinions on both Islands of the Month and outfits below!

Until next time,

The Sp00py Month of Sp00ptober

Hey guys! I’m sure you all have noticed the new sp00py halloween theme that the blog has.

… Or if you haven’t, get a new pair of glasses and look at the header and background above and around this post 😛

This theme change, is of course, because of upcoming Halloween, and it’ll be up until November 1st. (Excuse the badly-made header because of my absolutely spectacular Photoshop skills XD)

One of the ways we try to make our blog stand out is by changing our header&background whenever a big holiday/event comes around. In the past, we have done Poppies 2016 theme, and Tribal Tournament 2016 as well.

Do you enjoy these theme changes? We hope you do! What do you think of the absolutely sp00ptacular header for Halloween? 😀

Topping Tuesday: Top 5 Poptropica Villains

Top 5 Poptropica Villains (Opinion Based)

Hello, everyone! Lucky Joker here giving my opinion with another Topping Tuesday post! This post contains spoilers, read at your own discretion. Of course, solely opinion based, I’ll be listing five of Poptropica’s best villains. I’ll try to provide reasoning to explain my choices. Anyway- Let’s POP right into it, shall we?!

5: Black Widowpoptropica-black-widow

Being known as one of Poptropica’s most infamous villains, she had to be on the list. For one, the design is great. Her awesome jumpsuit and wild hair both make a great look for a villain. If you don’t already know, she is most known for her role in Counterfeit Island, being the villain. Initially, you meet her in disguise, only to discover the bad side of this character. She’s an art thief who throws multiple tantrums during the game, and even resorts at attempting to destroy art pieces in hopes of not getting captured. In addition to all of that, she gives your Poptropican player a major beat down.

pop myron.png4: Myron Van Buren

Myron Van Buren is an obsessive hunter, who spies on you throughout the episodes of Survival Island. Once you meet, things get a little suspicious. He attempts to hold your player hostage, but you find a way to escape. Eventually, you’re the quarry! What an evil guy with an awesome catchphrase. Tally Ho!

 

3: Mademoiselle Moreaupop-moreau

A lesson to be learned here- Looks are deceiving. This young French woman is very clever but in the worst way possible. Her ultimate plan is to destroy the Ferris Wheel at Chicago World’s Fair, to ensure the amazement of the Paris World Fair. She’s the main villain of Mystery Train Island- putting your character through lots of loops in trying to find the thief of Edison’s Motion Capture Device. She frames Tesla and even has him arrested. At one point in the Island, she even tries to have your Poptropican arrested. She manipulates everyone around her to get what she wants- To lead everyone in the wrong direction, so that she isn’t caught in her dirty deeds.

2: Binary Bardpoptropica binary bard.png

(Formerly/AKA Mordred) Binary Bard was the main antagonist of Astro-Knights Island.
Background Information: He was thrown in jail by the King and Queen for studying in technology and dark science. He escaped and further studied. He (possibly) transformed himself into a cyborg later on.

In the story of Astro-Knights Island, He kidnapped the princess of Arturus, Elyana, and shot five dangerous types of spacecraft down toward the kingdom. He flies out to space and plans to become the king of the universe! In attempts to save the princess and to stop his treacherous plan, your Poptropican goes out after him. He plays multiple tricks on you, putting you through many dilemmas, only making it harder to complete your mission. His amazing costume and name were worth mentioning, as well. 😛 He just has the whole wide world in his hands, doesn’t he?

1: Zeus

Not only does he serve as the main villain in one Poptropica Island, but in two(Being Super Villain and Mythology)! It may be because I’m really into Greek Mythology, but that’s beside the point. In Mythology Island, he has you go through a quest to find the five sacred items: Scale, Pearl, Rose, Whisker, and a minotaur’s ring. Once you do, he takes them for himself and plans to become the ruler of all of Poptropica, like being the ruler of the Olympians wasn’t enough right? He also puts you through a tough battle in the end scene.Poptropica Zeus.png

In Super Villain, he disguises as Dr. Jupiter, which I find clever. Jupiter is the Roman name of Zeus- There’s your fun fact of the day. He has Poptropica’s most infamous villains: Black Widow, Dr. Hare, Binary Bard and Captain Crawfish all under quarantine in hopes of removing their evil totems.  Of course, if you’ve played the island, you’d know he was only trying to obtain the totems to strengthen his power and better his chances in trying to take over all of Poptropica. Again, he puts you through a tough battle in the end. Plus, anyone with the possession of four Poptropica villains all at once is definitely deserving of the title “Poptropica’s Baddest Villain”.

Well, that’s it for now. Have a different opinion? Share yours in the comment section below. Hope you enjoyed, and see you next time!

Fashion Friday Week 8: Harry Potter Pt 1

Hey guys! It’s White Ice, posting the Fashion Friday outfits instead of LJ for once, and it’ll probably stay that way 😛

And I promise, our blog is gonna really be active again, starting from this post.

Anyway, for this week, it’s one of my main fandoms, Harry Potter characters based on their attires in the movies 🙂 Since there were many costumes this week, mostly by Friendly Foot, we’re going to have 2 separate posts 😀 First post is the trio, second are other cool characters.

Friendly Foot: Harry Potter

Screenshot_757.pngHair: This hair, which is shaded better than the average Poptropican hair, is from Jack on Red Dragon Island, but is also costumizable from anyone you see in common rooms.

Glasses: Can be found on the girl next to the Photo Booth on Home island.

Shirt, Pants and Scarf: All are costumizable from other people, and the scarf is pretty popular among community poptropicans.

For easier access to everything, just friend harrypotterpop10 (Happy Moon, Friendly’s account). Everything is costumizable.

White Ice: Hermione Granger

Screenshot_666.pngHair: From ASG: *cloud*10 (if you don’t know how to perform an ASG, check this out!

Lips: ASG: gPopSinger101

Clothes: The jacket can be found on Spotted Dragon, just add her at ooolala13. The shirt, belt and pants(and jacket too) can be costumized from that costume in my closet. Add me at maryamkamal2197.

Stick: From ASG: WKF_ASG_Request1

Remember to change her hair to something similar to that shade!

Red Thunder: Ron Weasley

Screenshot_761.pngHead: Hair and freckles are both from New You, inside the shop on Home Island.

Jacket and pants: From the girl next to the Photo Booth on Home Island.

Any frown works!

Anyway, that’s it for this week’s line of costumes. Stay tuned for Harry Potter Costumes Part 2!

Until next time,

White Ice (Icey)

Goodbye, Zany….

Zany Panda?

 

Zany Panda was one of the 4 main members of this blog, the starters of it, and will always be remembered as the beginning of this blog.

Unfortunately, she has left this blog due to miscommunications, and perhaps also because she is much younger than the rest of the team, and did not feel comfortable among us. And perhaps some inactivity too.

Goodbye, Zany, you will be missed…. Thank you for your contribution to this blog.

Farewell, old friend. Good luck with life.
