The PHB’s 14th Halloween Costume Contest: The Devil Wears Poptropica ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ’™

The contest is now closed. Stay tuned for the winners reveal on Halloween!

Hello, Poptropicans! Spooky season is upon us, which means it’s time for our annual Halloween costume contest… but with a twist.

This year, “The Devil Wears Poptropica” โ€” our theme inspired by a clever Poptropica meme tweet thread, which is itself inspired by an iconic scene from the cult classic film The Devil Wears Prada โ€” not only calls for your freaky costumes. We’re adding one special request in honor of the game we love: they must include something blue. ๐Ÿ’Ž


โ˜‘๏ธ Rules โ˜‘๏ธ

  1. ๐Ÿ’™ Create your costumes on Poptropica! You may create as many as you like for the competition. To qualify, it needs to contain the color blue โ€” as much or as little as you like.
  2. ๐Ÿ“ธ Take a screenshot. For backdrop, we recommend either the character customization screen or the Customizer window on PoptropiCon. Here’s how you can take a screenshot. Please crop it to focus on your costume.
  3. โฌ†๏ธ Upload your pic to the internet. You’ll need a web link for your pic to share it with us, which you can get by posting it to sites like Imgur, Discord, or Instagram. Then, comment on this post with the link.

๐Ÿ—บ Tips for Creating Your Costume ๐Ÿ—บ

๐ŸŒŸ Prizes ๐ŸŒŸ

  • ๐Ÿ—“ Deadline: The contest closes on Saturday, October 29.
  • ๐ŸŽƒ On Halloween (October 31), weโ€™ll post our favorite costumes on the front page of the PHB for all to enjoy.
  • ๐Ÿฅ‡ First place will win a 6-month Poptropica membership.
  • ๐Ÿฅˆ Second place will win a 3-month Poptropica membership.
  • ๐Ÿฅ‰ Third place will win a 1-month Poptropica membership.
  • ๐Ÿ’Ž Winning costumes will be immortalized in our Look Book, but weโ€™ll also have honorable mentions for just the post, not page.

Best of luck! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.


And then I think it was Apple, wasnโ€™t it, who rolled out the cerulean iMessage? I think we need a refresh here. And then the blue hues quickly showed up in the logos of eight different internet brands.

And then it filtered down through the internet, and then trickled on down into some tragic brand generator. Where you, no doubt, fished it out of some premade color palette. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs.

    1. We’d prefer if you can include it directly here in the comments, so we can keep track of all of them in one place. But if that’s not possible, you can email us a screenshot and we’ll post it here on your behalf. Good luck in the contest! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Brave Fox the Pineapple, is back again with another Fruit Themed Costume!
    How could talk about Halloween, Poptropica and THE COLOR BLUE, without mentioning the classic ZOMBERRY ISLAND!

    Here is my first entry the Zomberry Zombie!

    I wanted to knock this costume out first, before anyone else got the same idea. So you can expect more entries later this month!

      1. Sorry about that you can delete this one! I thought the first comment I made did not go through.

  2. I don’t know what’s going ons but ASG isn’t working for me it’s been like this since yesterday! whenever I try to load the outfit on my account it always says “Services are temporarily offline. Try again later.” can someone tell me what’s going on? I need help bc otherwise I can’t do the fit i wanted for my entry.

    1. It worked for me earlier today when I used it, but I did have that problem a few times, try entering a different ASG username, thatโ€™s what I did and it worked for me.
      If it still doesnโ€™t work, try it in a different browser.
      Let me know if you still have issues with it.

      1. okay I tried both of them but I still have the same problem. anything else I can try?

        P.S . Thanks for trying to help ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Hmm, maybe try a different device if you have one. If you donโ€™t, maybe try closing all the other tabs you have open, after you copied the username?

  3. Here’s my entry, the Electric beast. I may have gone overboard with the amount of blue so it might be a bit difficult to see with the blue background of the character customization screen.

  4. This, friends, is Nice Ice!
    they’re blue (da ba dee da doo dah) and while they may seem cold (no pun intended) they’re the kookiest friend to hang out with once you get to know ’em!

What's popping, Poptropicans?
