The PHB’s 13th Halloween Costume Contest: ☠️ Grim & Whimsical βœ¨

Greetings, Poptropicans! The time has come once again for our annual Halloween costume contest. We took some inspiration from the latest island, for this year’s theme is Grim & Whimsical!

From the dark tales collected by the Brothers Grimm to the lighthearted flicks adapted by Disney, the subject matter and tone of fairytales have evolved over many centuries. For this year’s PHB Halloween contest, you can embrace the macabre as a monster or a witch 😈, or wish upon a star as a knight or a fairy godmother. πŸ’«

To get the hype going, the PHB team took on either of the two sides (Grim for the first half, Whimsical for the second) to create some costume inspiration for everyone!

πŸ“ Here are the rules for entering the contest:

  1. 🦸 Create your costumes on Poptropica! You may enter each category as many times as you wish. However, each person is eligible to win just once per category.
  2. πŸͺŸ Take a screenshot of your costume entry on either the character customization screen or the Customizer window on PoptropiCon. That way, the background is fairly clear. If you don’t know how to take a screenshot, here are some instructions on how to do so, which will vary depending on your device.
  3. ⬆️ Upload your pic to the internet. You can post your entry to image sharing sites like Imgur or social media platforms like Discord, Twitter or Instagram. No matter where you post it, the important thing is to comment on this post and include a link to your entry. In your comment, please also mention the category you are entering, the name of your costume, and anything else you want to share.

🎭 Tips for Creating Your Costume πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ

πŸ‘‘ Prizes ✨

  • πŸ—“ Deadline: The contest closes on Friday, October 29.
  • πŸŽƒ On Halloween (October 31), we’ll post our favorite costumes from each category on the front page of the PHB for all to enjoy.
  • 🌟 A grand prize winner will be selected for each category. Each grand prize winner will receive a 1-month Poptropica membership.
  • πŸ•Ί Winning costumes will be immortalized on our Costumes page, but we’ll also have honorable mentions for just the post, not page.

Never trust a magic man. ✨😈

  1. yeahhhh ! at last the costume contest is here !!!!
    but where do i post it ?
    because I am under age for discord twitter , etc.

    so where should i post it ?
    here or somewhere else ?
    .

    1. Please post your costume(s) here in the comments β€” no social media needed. (For those who do use social media, which can be useful for getting a link for your pic, please still post your entry here, so we can keep them all in one place.) Thanks!

  2. Sweet! A few questions:
    Can we make more than one costume?
    Can we email you the costume pic?
    If we can’t make more than one costume for each, than can we at least make one for each subject (grim and whimsical)?
    Thank you and good luck everyone!

    1. Yup, as the rules state, you can make as many costumes as you like for either category! Also, please share your pics in the comments here (as opposed to emailing) so we can see all entries in one place. Thanks, and ghooould luck! πŸ‘»

      1. Okay, how do you put the pic in the comments?
        Thank you for your time and have a good day

      2. Get a link for your pic by uploading it somewhere online, then share that link in your comment here. See step 3 in the rules for entering the contest.

  3. First try: file:///home/chronos/u-e1deceaa074b9fb1b5e71106433844207a4280bc/MyFiles/Downloads/Screenshot%202021-10-08%204.45.59%20PM.png

      1. Well, if somebody asks me if your costume is bad, I’d say “Negative, Ghost Rider” 😜

      1. Thank you!
        By the way, I know this is really offtopica, but I really like your blog, Giant Dragon! When’s the next post coming out?

      2. well, i wont be posting anything there for a some time , because i still haven’t got permission to do so from my parents , but you can find me here, on the PHB !!

    1. Just so you know, most of my Whimsical costumes will be based on mythology of any kind, particularly Greek, Roman, or Norse, since I find most things in mythology whimsical.

    1. Impressive!
      Just so you know, I think the categories are Grim and Whimsical, while Rose Princess, Infatuated Imp, and the others up there are just examples from the PHB staff. I like how you used the names but put different costumes, but I don’t think you need to. Still, really good job.πŸ‘

    2. wow!!! . superb costume(s) dd, its a perfect combination of grim and whimsical . i would all it “grimsical” πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  4. For my second entry,

    This is “Fairy of the Sun” in the Whimsical category:

    and this is “Queen Blizzard” in the Grim category:

What's popping, Poptropicans?
