PHB’s 8th Annual Autumnal-Halloween Contest!


This contest is now CLOSED. Check out our announcement of winners here!

Boo, Poptropicans! Fall is here, and that means Halloween is not far behind!

Even if you don’t live in a region that experiences a season of leaves changing color, pumpkin pie, and jack-o-lanterns (or if it’s spring where you are), the only thing you’ve got to fear are the Halloween costumes of your fellow Poptropicans – because here on the PHB, for the 8th year in a row, we’re continuing our tradition of throwing a costume contest in October!

This year, in addition to the Halloween theme, we’re adding another theme: the season of fall itself! You can choose to participate in both (or one, or neither, as you wish).

Traditionally, Poptropicans submit their best Poptropica Halloween (and now, also autumn/fall) costumes in the comments section by giving an Avatar Studio link and/or posting their username. Keep in mind the following tips:

  • Be original! Mix and match to create your own unique costume(s).
  • There are some great Halloween costume parts at the ghoul gathering from the end of the Haunted House quest from the Store, as well as the collection of free costumes in the Store, but be creative and search in other places too! As for autumn, look for the colors of fall, like red, orange, yellow, and brown.
  • Keep your costume intact until after the winners are announced, or we may not see it! If you don’t want to keep the costume on your main account, create a new one and post that instead.
  • To post your entry, go to the Avatar Studio, type in your username, click Load, click on the Link to highlight it, right-click and choose Copy, go to the comments section on 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.

WHAT TO LOOK FORWARD TO: On Halloween (October 31st), we’ll make a post featuring the winning costumes, plus they will also be immortalized on the PHB’s Costumes page, where you can also see examples of past winners. We’ll have 10 winners for the costume portion – 5 fall fashions, and 5 Halloween hauntings.

You may send in multiple entries (as many as you like), but note that each person can only win a maximum of one time. Please remember to use a different account for every entry, as otherwise we will only see the last costume you put on.

UPDATE: Poptropica has graciously offered to sponsor this PHB contest by giving a one-month membership to each of the 10 winners! Now you have to enter, right? 😉

But wait, there’s more…


Stolen Snapshots is returning for another round called Spooktober, courtesy of Slippery Raptor! Can you guess which islands these spooooky negatives were taken from?

Alright, spoopy peoples! Be sure to post your guesses, costumes, and any questions you may have in the comments below! Have a hauntingly blessed day and enjoy the apple cider season!

  1. Hi Everyone! This is my first time ever commenting on any Poptropica blog. Well, I just wanted to post my entry for the Halloween Costume Contest! I used one of my secondary girl accounts (though I am a guy) for my entry. The Username is “psycoexpress!” with the explanation mark at the end. I call this one, The Scarred Markswoman!

    Hope you guys like it!

    1. Welcome to the blog Shiny BIrd! It’s a really fun site, the PHB are great people. I think you’ll enjoy the website! 🙂

    1. Please make sure to submit multiple entries on different accounts per costume, otherwise we can only see the last costume you put on. Currently, your links are all the same, showing us the same account – so we are only seeing one costume instead of four.

  2. Hi guys! After spending horrifying hours of pain and suffering coming up with ideas, and carefully putting together costumes on my different accounts, I’m back with another post for THREE MORE costumes!
    This first one was made with another one of my girl accounts (the username for this one is “shinybird350”). I call it, the “Ancient Greek Warrior”!:
    This next entry fits more into the “fall fashion” category. I Haven’t yet come up with a name for this one, but regardless, here it is!:
    And now for the grand finale! This last, but certainly not least, costume was made specially with my main account, “Arbiter213”. I call it, “The Legend of Crawfish”. Enjoy!
    Oh, and this last one is just a little re-post of my first one so that all of my entries is conveniently put into one post. The username for this one is “psycoexpress!” (including the explanation mark at the end) and the name of the costume is “The Scarred Marksman”

    Hope you all like my entries!

    1. Edit: This is Mira Ciel.

      And for my second entry- Grimystic(I wish I could come up with something better 😅.)

    1. It is supposed to have the blag flags hat which is much more fitting. Looks like it only shows up for those of us who are black flags members

  3. Hey there PHB. I was wondering if you’ve had a look at my Beauty and the Beast costume already, because for some reason, the costume vanished from the account. I can try to put it back on, but it might take some time.

  4. My username is the one I’m using. My costume is ‘corrupted angel’ in my closet. You will know why I named it that.

    1. Only on Twitter or Instagram. Which is quite unfortunate for me since I’m not considering getting an account for any of those. Didn’t they have something where you didn’t have to last year?

      1. Yeah, but maybe they’re to busy with New Poptropica, or maybe it was to hard to do it just like the old one, which explains why if you have a mask, glasses, goggles, special hair and hat types or any thing else that covers your face, if you change expressions, it’s gone.

  5. Okay, I can’t find my comment with my entry link so I’m going to post them again just to be safe. Also, if it is still already here, I commented under the name of Crab3012, my username.

    Zombie Swamp-

    Note: my second costume is made by me but I had to create a different account for it to work. My main/original one is crab3012

    Fry from the show ‘Futurama’-
