March on in, Poptropicans, before March is on its way out!
Entries for the monthly costume contest are in, and while a winner has not yet been selected, the showreel for March’s costume designs is now available below. We’ll find out which one gets made in-game when the Baron docks again in early April!
This past weekend also saw the 2022 Oscars hosted, and Poptropica’s pop-arazzi got in on the buzz with some red carpet looks on their Instagram. 🏆✨ Check out their recreations of big night outfits worn by celebrity singer Beyoncé, actor Simu Liu, actress Jessica Chastain, and actor Kodi Smit-McPhee (swipe to see them all):
Of course, if you’ve been on the internet lately, you might know that the stars of this year’s Oscars weren’t all the glitzy fashion, but the face slap moment that quickly became a meme. 💥 Poptropica’s Instagram might only show a pretty side, but Poptropica’s Twitter gets real with a retweet of one such meme from Coolmath Games, and even their own surprised tweet when the moment occurred. Seems like Pop’s social media might have split personalities across platforms… 🤔
Onto the game itself: on Home Island, there’s a new ad for Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock (now streaming on Apple TV+)!
Head inside for an obstacle course mini-game to get Gobo’s backpack while avoiding hidden Gorgs and other dangers. After two minutes, if you make it, you’ll win a Doozer Follower and Be Red! outfit.
Still a better game than Unicorn Frenzy, perhaps? If we’re going to be playing lackadaisical mini-games, at least this one’s got Pop style.
Speaking of which, if you’ve been wondering what’s up with Poptropica’s Roblox game (or couldn’t get a game going), Poptropica recently released footage of the candy-colored collect-a-thon in action. 🦄
Rounding off this update are the latest fan art features from Pop’s Instagram stories! These characters are really rockin’ their pink. 💖
Keep on poppin’ on!
