Like last year’s Red October, the Cabin of Curiosities will be refreshed with six player-designed Halloween costumes — the winners of September’s contest, arriving this Thursday! We’ve already got peeks of the first two, with the rest to be revealed in the coming days. Enjoy~
Unlike before, however, this would be the first time the airship doesn’t depart before arriving with new stock. But this means that September’s haul will soon be replaced, so grab them while you can!
With all these spooky suit-ups on the way, it’s not too soon to start thinking about your Poptropica Halloween costume… 🎃
October is a great time for Pop fan art, as we’ve just launched Poptober 2022, a series of daily drawing prompts to inspire your creative juices. Find out more here and do share your art with us on the PHC! 🌟
Welp, we’re nearing the end of September, which means it’s almost time to wake up… for spooky season! Get ready for the PHB’s annual Halloween costume contest coming up in October! 🎃
And though Poptropica has spent the entire month ignoring their big milestone, we’ll go ahead and say it: happy 15th birthday, Poptropica. Wish we had something special to go with it in the game, but like our beloved Balloon Boy, it seems to be up in the air. 🎈
Hey Poptropicans! While there’s no sign of the mysterious Baron just yet, we do have a whirlwind of emotions flying in…
Poptropica Junior — the recent Pop spin-off for Pre-K kids — this week released some emotions-based coloring pages with some familiar Pop faces. We’re as upset as the prince of Fairytale Island that Poptropica’s main game doesn’t seem to be getting this much love! 😭
Over on the Pop Creators’ Blog, guest blogger Invisible Ring has returned with a new video sharing segments from “Future Machine News,” with reporting from Time Tangled Island and Popsona drawings throughout. Highlights include: the discontinuation of the fan-run Poptropica Month event, Dr. Hare as prime suspect for the theft of stuffed bunnies, and the mysterious “disappearance” of Invisible Ring. Tune in below:
Enjoy the latest fan art features from Poptropica’s Instagram stories — this time all focused on the handsome bird man, Ringmaster Raven! 🐦
That’s all for now. Looks like we’re already halfway through Pop’s birthday month without any party favors yet, and the Baron is late. Grab me a coloring page, we’re feeling as sad as Sprocket…
Weather alert: The skies continue to be clear of the Baron’s airship, but not for much longer, according to a comment from Poptropica on their blog: “The Airship hit a bit of headwind, but will be arriving soon!” 🍂
In the meantime, September’s costume contest has already commenced, and it’s seeking Halloween designs! Last year, not one but six costumes were selected for the Baron’s Red October event, and such festivities are set to continue this year. Enter by Monday,September 26 at 8pm PST for your chance to get your costume made!
In other news, enjoy the latest fan art features from Poptropica’s Instagram stories, with Raven tears and cosmic jeers! 🐦🥺
Pop drop alert: PoptropiCon Island, Ep. 3: Reign of Omegon has been re-released for members on desktop and mobile! 🚨🤖
With that, the PoptropiCon trilogy is once again complete (though it already is on Steam and Flashpoint). Once you’ve made your way inside the convention and uncovered a top-secret costume design, Episode 3 takes you to the final boss: the unexpected rise of a robot ruler.
If you’ll be visiting the depths of Omegon’s terrors, be sure to keep our PoptropiCon Island Guide near! No word yet on when it will officially re-release for non-members, but if we’re guessing from past patterns, it could be several months — or even a year. Hopefully sooner, though.
The latest converted episode comes just after an announcement from the Pop Creators less than two weeks ago on the official blog, and a day after another brief appearance in our fan-run Discord server, the PHC. Poptropica didn’t stop to chat, but fans were quick to follow up with an emoji petition for bringing back the classic Astro-Knights Island. 🚀
The Pop Creators’ Blog also brings news of a shop update featuring hoodies galore for the season of fall, as well as a new fanfic from guest writer Dizzy Feather. Check out the full shop stock as well as the prologue to The Adventures of Shy Owl on the official blog! 🍂🦉
The start of a new month also means new member gifts! The latest batch for privileged players features a Neon Bike, Neon Leather Jacket, and Neon Helmet. Ride with style! ✨
However, other expected monthly deliveries have yet to arrive with any mention — namely the Baron’s airship along with the costume contest winner. Does the Baron’s unexplained absence last month have anything to do with it?
One more thing: September isn’t just any month, it’s Poptropica’s birthday month! Are there surprises in store? We’ll have to see… 👀
