EDIT: Skinny Moon just commented on this post to add another rule! Hi Jessica, love your work.
One more addition: I forgot to say 3 entries per person, max. And entries have to be original, not a mashup of Poptropica costume parts. I edited the blog post to say that! 😀
Your regularly-scheduled post continues below.
BIG news today – Poptropica is holding another art contest!
This one is quite different from the last few held – the #MyPoptropicaCostume contest asks you to design your dream costume. If it wins, you’ll get a 6 month membership and it will be made into a real Poptropica costume and sold in the store, as well as being worn by an NPC on Home Island! How cool is that?
And yes, Skinny Moon did include a meme in her post.
Of course, there are some guidelines for this contest, as listed below:
- You can use our template (find it here) to draw your outfit. Or draw your Poptropican’s outfit freehand (here’s a guide). Or draw your creation using your computer or tablet. Whatever you want!
- Use your imagination! Get inspired by your favorite movies or TV shows and put your own original twist on them. Or think about your favorite activities, sports, and hobbies, and base a costume around one of them. Check out your favorite magazines and take a cue from the latest trends. The sky’s the limit!
- Don’t forget about fun accessories and powers that your costume could have!
When you design your costume, be sure it could be reproducable as a Poptropica Costume. Teeny tiny details would be hard to recreate for a store costume.
- Give your costume a name and put your Poptropican’s name on it, and if you want, your age. Do not include your last name or where you live. For example, your entry could say something like “Winter Fun Outfit by Happy Catfish, age 14.”
Like the last few contests, you have to submit your creations through a social media account with the tag #MyPoptropicaCostume. If you don’t have a social media account, and don’t know anyone (adult, friend, etc) who can post for you, fret not – we at the PHB would be more than happy to post it for you on our Twitter – just contact the PHB to let us know.
The contest ends on December 31st with the winner announced in January. That means we have about a month and a half to make some fabulous costumes – get drawing!
The creators leave us with two costumes created by Perfect Sky as inspiration, if needed.
Good luck to everybody! I know I’ll probably enter (if I get around to it).
