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. 💫
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!
📝 Here are the rules for entering the contest:
- 🦸 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.
- 🪟 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.
- ⬆️ 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.
