Boo! It’s Halloween, which means it’s time for the unveiling of this year’s costume competition winners! Out of over eighty haunting entries submitted, the list has been narrowed down to 10 doombringers who have rightfully earned their spot on the PHB’s front page for the time being and our Costumes page for eternity! Say hello to…
Zombie Possessed Demon Killer (Cool Octopus)
Zombies and devils, that is one frightening face. (For those wondering, it comes from the 2012 Hotel Transylvania ad.) The roped torso is also a nice touch to the killer theme.
Rouge et Noire (Elphangor & Edalfrey)
(The costume was submitted by Elphangor and may have been inspired by Edalfrey.) Rouge et Noire, or red and black in French, appears to be a brilliantly scarier version of the villain Black Widow.
Mad Robot Scientist (Pixel)
While experimenting with trying to attain immortality (the ability to live forever) for humanity, this evil scientist had an accident with the machinery… and the golden electronics took over.
Crusty Curmudgeon (HPuterpop)
This guy is crusty all right… pie-crusty and grouchy-crusty! Wouldn’t you be if you ended up with smoke sizzling in your hair and jam on your face? Love the alliteration in the name as well.
More-Video-Games Zombie (Comical Turtle)
So this is what happens when the apocalypse hits and one hasn’t played quite enough video games to prepare for it… now he’s sleep-deprived, drooling, and bitten.
Skull-faced Sorcerer (mjecuizon)
This practitioner of witchcraft sure has mastered the appearance of a spooky spellcaster! If that skull-face or skull-sword isn’t enough to scare you away, the itsy bitsy spider at the tip of the hat might.
I Died Chewing the Trash (superniceywhitepaw)
Halloween brings forth a ton of weirdos, but nothing says stay-away-from-me louder than some greasy guy digging for some grub in the garbage. And then rotting with it when he dies of food poisoning.
Vampire Grandpa (Spotted Dragon)
He may not sparkle like Edward Cullen, but this pale-skinned classy senior citizen has been around long enough to taste the blood of more generations than you’d like to think.
Cheshire Cat (Ria/Purple Flame)
Based on the creepily-grinning feline from Disney’s 1951 film Alice in Wonderland, this Cheshire Cat puts a bright and unique spin on the typical cat costumes roaming Poptropica.
This (literally) hair-rising witch isn’t too happy… her pet cat vanished after a spell gone wrong, leaving her with a permanently grouchy expression and the refusal to change out of her old-fashioned dress.
Thanks to everyone who entered. We hope you had fun creating your costume! And congratulations to all the winners – enjoy the honor of having your Costumes featured.
