The Poptropica Help Blog presents

Halloween Costume Contest Eleven:
๐Ÿ˜‡ Heavenly & Hellish ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

As is our tradition here on the PHB, we’re hosting a Halloween costume contest on Poptropica! It’s our eleventh year doing this, and this time around we’re hosting two categories: Heavenly (for all things cute, charming, and classy) and Hellish (for the devilish, deviant, and depraved).

Here’s what you need to know about entering:

  1. Assemble your costume for either category on Poptropica. You may enter each category as many times as you like. Each individual person is eligible to win just once per category.
  2. Take a screenshot of your costume entry in the Costumizer window.* Here’s how to take a screenshot โ€” the instructions will vary depending on your device. For Windows, you’ll also need to paste it somewhere to save it as an image file on your computer. Also, use the in-game Costumizer window (pictured below) as that will display your character at a high resolution. Ideally, crop the image to show just your character.
  3. Upload the image to the web and share the link in the comments of this post. You can use a site like imgur to upload your picture and obtain a web link for it that can then be shared so others can see it. Once you’ve got a link, comment on this PHB post you’re reading right now with the link. Include details such as what category you’re entering, what you’re naming your costume, and anything else you’d like to share about it. Look for my sample entry comment (it’ll be by Slanted Fish) for an example.

*Note: Though we’ve used Avatar Studio (AS) links in the past, many of the newer items in Poptropica are not visible through AS. If your entire costume is still viewable by AS, you’re welcome to provide a link or username in lieu of a picture. However, since AS is no longer a complete guarantee for displaying costumes, we recommend taking a screenshot.

Share a screenshot of your costume in the Costumizer window, like so. You can access this screen from the green shirt button in the menu.

๐Ÿ“ Things to Note โœจ

  • If you send us an Avatar Studio link, you’ll have to keep your costume intact until Halloween so we can see it throughout the month. That’s something you won’t have to concern yourself with if you send a screenshot instead, and it’ll be easier for you to capture multiple costume entries!
  • Tips for seeking out costume parts: We know Poptropica has changed a lot in the past year, making lots of old methods obsolete, but there are still places you can go for cool costume parts. Dig through old store items, buy new store costumes, crank the switch in the New You shop on Home Island, snag something off an NPC from PoptropiCon, sneak your way into old islands with this link from idk the glitcher, and use MAP (for individual parts) or the ASG Machine (for full costumes) along with usernames from our ASG collection.
  • Disclaimer: Our “heavenly” and “hellish” themes refer generally to the imaginations of pop culture at large, and do not necessarily reflect theological perspectives on the nature/ideas of heaven/hell.

๐Ÿ‘‘ Prizes โœจ

  • The contest closes on Wednesday, October 30. We’ll announce the winners the next day.
  • On Halloween (October 31), we’ll post our favorite costumes from each category on the front page of the PHB for all to enjoy.
  • Two grand prize winners will be selected, one in each category. Each grand prize winner will receive a 1-month Poptropica membership.
  • Featured costumes will also be immortalized on our Costumes page, but we’ll also have honorable mentions for just the post, not page.

Happy Costumizing!

  1. Hereโ€™s a sample comment to show how to post your entry/entries to the contest.

    ๐Ÿ’€ โ€œLayered Slayer”
    Category: Hellish

    For reference: Hair from Icarus costume, skull and sword from Skull Pirate costume, wings from Dodo Bird costume, scarf from Jill Oโ€™Lantern costume, black shirt and pants from Masked Hero costume, earrings from Amazonian Woman costume, skull belt from wheel pirate on Home Island

    (Note: You donโ€™t have to detail how you assembled your costume, but are most certainly welcome to. Many of the parts I listed come from costumes that arenโ€™t currently obtainable in-game, but may be accessible through other means such as MAP or ASG, as mentioned in the post. You can also include other things in your entry, such as a backstory for your character.)

    Happy Costumizing, Poptropicans! ๐ŸŽƒ

    1. I’m very glad to be part of the annual Halloween contest again. I also like the Heaven versus Hell theme as it keeps the contest fresh. Fingers crossed that I win and not become an honorable mention again.

      1. Heavenly Healer(correct link)-

  2. Lol, let’s see my chances of winning membership backfire.

    But hey, it’ll be fun anyways.
    (Still hope I win.)

  3. Ok so, I’m not any good at spoopy things but honestly, the costume IS a little spoopy?

    Category: Hellish
    Eyeless Comedy:

    I used MAP (Modify a Poptropican) for the eyes, axe was from the Headless Man outfit (it wont show, sorry.) and the rest was the clown outfit.

    So, let’s go to the opposite side of things.

    Category: Heavenly
    The Guardian of Eden: (With Torch effect on) (without effect for full speculation)

    I combined the Icarus costume and the Angel outfit plus the Lightning Knights’ sword to finish it off. I wanted a flaming sword, but, that would be very hard to get so Torch would have to do for now.

    Well I guess that’s it. I’m keeping the angel outfit for a while, though. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. “Dark Moth”
    Category: Hellish

    Reference: Hair from Pop Star costume, face from Vampire Girl 2, wings from Strange Magic AD, shirt and skirt from customizer on Home Island, necklace from customizer on Home Island

    “Beautiful Angel”
    Category: Heavenly

    Reference: Hair and makeup from Ballerina costume, shirt and skirt from Time Tangled Island, wings and harp from Angel costume

  5. I’m no good at costume making but here’s another.

    “The Experiment”:

    Category: Hellish

    Costume from “Pale Zombies” prize (Won from Haunted House mini-quest), Fly Mask from Monster Carnival Island.

    “Zeus’ Guard”:

    Category: Heavenly

    Zeus ASG for the crown, Lightning Knight for the armor + sword, B.A.D Bandana from Spy Island.

    These are much better. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

    1. That isn’t the right link you’re suppose to use.

      Try clicking on “view link”, and use that one instead.

  6. First time commenting on this website to try my hand at this contest! It’s been so long since I’ve used Imgur that I forgot how it works, so please tell me if the links don’t work!

    Butterfly Goddess
    Category: Heavenly
    Sources: Aphrodite (Back Hair), Home Island Costume Thing (Side Hair with Earrings and Smile), Dance-A-Corn Costume (Bangs), Pop Star (Shirt), Lady in Front of the Home Island Costume Thing (Necklace), Random Person in the Arcade (Belt), Fairy Queen (Wings), Fairytale Costume (Skirt), Southern Belle (Umbrella)

    Eye Bleeding Nightmare
    Category: Hellish
    Link (There’s two pictures by the way, one with the chainsaw one without):
    Sources: Random Person in the Arcade (Back Hair), Rock Star 2 (Bangs), Bride of Frankenstein (Scar with Eye Bags and Belt), Girl in front of Gabby Duran and the Unsittables Ad (Mouth), Someone from Poptropicon that I don’t remember (Fancy Tie Thing and Cape), Headlessman Costume (Shirt), Twisted Thicket Lumberjack (Chainsaw), Different Person in the Arcade (Shorts)

  7. I was gonna come up with something funny, although it doesn’t really go with any of these catagories. And I’ll be quite frank, it isn’t even Halloween themed to begin either.

  8. I’m always stoked to be part of the blog’s annual Halloween contest especially when it changes theme to keep the contest fresh. Fingers crossed that I win and not be an honorable mention again.
