Hello once again everyone! Spotted Dragon here bringing you the September recap for Community Creations! September’s theme was Punk, so be sure to check out all the featured artists (not in any order)!
No clue what’s going on? Go see our intro post.
Top 5 Picks
Copy Cat and Speeding Spike by bunnies_n_bowties
Starting things off with a punch! 👊 These two cool cats are definitely rocking their punk outfits. And those outfits actually come from an outfit meme where fans request an artist to draw characters in specific outfits. Very creative! The fits seem to suit this criminal coupling, right down to the punk piercings and makeup. And I love those dynamic poses! Find her Instagram here and her Tumblr here.
Chaos Club by Lucky Joker
Oooh, now we’re getting into the more spooky side of punk. 💀 As the Poptropica Creators said regarding this work: Gothtropica all the way! The super dark color scheme really lets those neon colors pop. And, of course, it can’t be punk without a little darkness! Who’s your favorite goth-tropican? 👀 Find his Instagram here and DeviantArt here.
Pumpkin Punk by Gentle Dolphin
Hey, doesn’t this outfit feel a little familiar? 🎃 Well it should because it was one of the winners of the Red October Halloween Costume Contest! So get ready to see this pop-tastic punk design in-game soon. Not only is it perfect for September’s theme, but it is also quite appropriate for the fast-approaching spooky season. The Jack-o-Lantern inspired face paint is to die for. Anyone else as excited for Halloween as I am? Find her Instagram here and DeviantArt here.
Villain Fan Girl by BrittScarlet
As if our first three features weren’t punk enough, this submission rocks our socks off. 🤘 Nothing more punk than a villain, after all! The ripped pants, fingerless gloves, dyed hair, and dramatic makeup all scream punk rock. I could definitely see someone wearing this outfit at a concert, which is appropriate since punk culture has such strong ties to music. Keep rocking it! Find her Instagram here.
Betty Jetty in Punk Form by Friendly Feather
Lastly, we have a Betty Jetty piece soaring in. ✈ It seems that the Super Power Island villains really fit our theme, huh? But this rendering stands out because of its ties to Fairy Tale Island as well. Cinder, after all, is basically the punk rock queen of Poptropica. I love seeing this sort of crossover happen in art, and that outfit is definitely on brand for a punk concert. Find the artist in the comments and on Discord.
Now I’m not punking you guys when I say that those submissions rocked. I loved seeing that fiery spirit in all your work! Let’s bring that passion into next month too.
October: How Do I Participate?
Community Creations is a cool series for anyone in the Poptropica community to join in on. To sum up what it’s about, it’s basically a chance to show off your artwork, creepy fan-fics, Pop clubhouses, costumes, and anything else that pops into your mind.
If we really like the piece you submit, we will feature it here on the PHB! As long as it relates to that month’s theme. So what is October’s theme? October’s theme is…
👻 Ghosts & Ghouls! 👻
As we enter spooky season, it is only appropriate that we begin celebrating Halloween immediately. So for this month, you may also want to take inspiration from trends like Inktober or happyclonetrooper’s Pop-tober prompts.
Fear not! There’s so much you can do with this prompt. Ghost Story Island is a good place to start, but you could even make your own ghost costume or your own, well, ghost story fanfic! Take inspiration from Daphne Dreadnought or even the Haunted House mini-quest. As long as your work includes a spooky specter or fearful phantom, it’ll fit with our theme.
And on a similar note, be sure to check out the upcoming PHB’s annual Halloween Costume Contest for more fall fun!

- Due Date: I will take any entries before the end of this month. Submit as many things as you’d like!
I will be sure to let you know I have seen your creation. While quality counts, I’m mainly looking for something to simply catch my eye, so don’t be afraid to join in!
So what are you waiting for? Go make something awesome!
