(UPDATE: This contest is now closed; click here for the winners!)
You read right! Now for the fifth year in a row, the Poptropica Help Blog will be running a Halloween-themed Poptropica costume contest, in which you flaunt your eeriest Poptropica fashion and see how it stacks up with the competition.
Ten winners will be selected to have their costumes featured in the PHB’s popular Costumes page, plus they’ll have their costumes featured on the PHB’s front page when the winners are announced on Halloween (October 31, when the contest ends)! Read on for more details.
Before you rush out to put together your masterpiece, please keep these rules in mind:
- IDEAS: Be original! We like to see that you’ve put effort into creating something spooky yet fashionable for the season, so simply copying (as opposed to mixing and matching) will probably hurt your chances. There are some great costume parts at the ghoul gathering from the end of the Haunted House quest from the Store, but be creative and search in other places too!
- DON’T CHANGE: Keep your costume intact until after the winners are announced. If you change your costume back, we may not get to see your brilliant entry!ย If you donโt want to keep the costume on your main account, you can create a new one and post that instead.
- ENTERING: After you’ve created your costume, here’s how you should post your entry:ย go to theย Avatar Studio, type in your username, clickย Load, click on theย Linkย to highlight it, right-click and choose Copy, go to the comments section onย this post, right-click and choose Paste, type in your comment and submit so we can view your costume by clicking the link! Name your costume and post the username if you want.ย If you are having problems with the Avatar Studio, just post the username so we can check it. You may submit as many different entries as you like, but you can only win a maximum of one time (out of the 10 winners to be chosen).
(side note: the competition banner above features jameskiro’s spooky party clown, one of the winners last year. other past winners can also be viewed on the costumes page!)
