In other news, the month of
Halloween October is now in full swing, so Poptropica’s begun to celebrate! The Halloween photo booth is back, along with another Photo Booth contest starting next week. Skinny Moon has also gotten into the spoopy spooky spirit, and she’s not the only one – have you seen our Poptropicans lately? 😉
Welcome back Halloween Photo Booth!
She’s going to have to lay off the garlic.
In other spooky news, there appear to be some strange glitches on Home Island affecting hair color and fashion choices. No, oh wait – apparently DJ Saturday Nite and New You lady went to the hair salon together, and even Amelia’s appearance is deliberate. My bad.
Looks like DJ Saturday Nite found the hair bleach.
Well, that certainly is a “New You”.
Amelia’s aesthetic is apparently mixing period clothing.
In addition to the aesthetic changes, some characters, specifically Amelia Earhart and the wheel-spinny-guy-dude, also have some new dialogue! Seems the creators favor the term “loot” over “prizes” now, and Amelia’s plugging the new Fall Fashion lineup. (Thanks to Happy Lobster for the images!)
Finally, the spooky Halloween-themed items of the Poptropica Store have been moved to the front of the card lineups for easy access! Check ’em out and deck out!
Whoof, this was a long update. Thanks for sticking with me!
