Monthly Costume Contests

Shooting Star Hero and more starring in August’s costume compilation πŸŒ 

Hey Poptropicans, the results are in for August’s costume design contest! As always, the entries are stunning spectacles. 🀩

And the winning creation is… Shooting Star Hero by Red Toes! (You may recall this brilliant artist whose memes were recently featured by the Pop Creators.) This cute cosmic costume will soon be available to all for free when the Baron makes her next landing on Home Island.

Not only that, we also get to see everyone’s contest entries in a compilation video! Last month’s video apparently kicked off a new tradition, because the Creators’ Blog promises to showcase a compilation video every month. Take a look!

You may recognize some of them from previous fan art features shared on Instagram and the PHB, or notice the occasional copyrighted character, including Undertale’s Sans at the 3:20 mark. Which ones are your faves? Here are some of my personal picks:

The Baron’s airship should be arriving any day now, so keep your eyes to the skies and get your credits ready for the inevitable splurging to come! Keep on popping on, Poptropicans. ✌️

Outfitted for adventure and designed for victory πŸ‘•β›°οΈ

Hello, you fashion forward Poptropicans! The Creators gave us a short and sweet store update today, so here’s an equally short and sweet PHB post covering it as well as some costume contest news.

Another Monday, another Adventure Outfitters update! All players can dress for first day success with the returning Bookworm Kid and Fashionista Prep, but members can go trailblazing with the all-new High Adventure outfit. Along with the new outfits, don’t forget that you can still purchase Tokyo Olympics gear for a short time. These items will definitely cost a bit of fictional currency, but you can start earning credits by completing islands and many other means.

But wait, there’s more… sort of. A new Instagram post advertising Adventure Outfitters features a new costume not yet seen in Poptropica. This woodland elf costume pictured below definitely gives some Twisted Thicket vibes. We should be able to purchase this costume in the near future, likely sometime next week.


Those are definitely some nice fits, but is there a particular look that you wish to wear in-game? Why not enter the August costume contest? All you need to do is design an outfit or three then submit them through Poptropica’s submissions page. You oughta act fast since the contest ends tonight at 11 p.m. Eastern/ 8 p.m. Pacific. Good luck, designers!

Thank you for reading, and have a good day!

Baron's Airship, Member Gifts, Monthly Costume Contests, Store

Airship arrives with Ice Cream Cat costume & other collectibles

Hey Poptropicans! Are you ready to board the Baron’s boat? Because the Red Baron’s airship has returned to Home Island! But act now since the ship is only here until Friday, August 6th.

Like last time, enter the ship to find a common room on the flight deck, the Cabin of Curiosities shop to the left, and the mini-game to earn credits to the right. Everything is expectedly looking the same! But let’s check out the Cabin of Curiosities to see what’s new.

As promised, July’s costume contest winner is featured inside! Ice Cream Cat made by Silver Flame is available for free. How purr-fect! 🍦🐈

Aside from this sweet new get-up, there are a few other new goodies to scream for too. To the right, we have Gretchen Grimlock gear (50 credits), Retro Robot regalia (50 credits), a statue (600 credits), a Papa Pete’s Pizza box (50 credits), a floating aquarium set up (800 credits), and a suitcase/trunk (50 credits). Plus, that gold skull above the entrance is still available.

Both of those costumes are quite familiar to long-time players, huh? If you earned an extra 5000 credits this past week by logging in every day, you should be able to go on a fun spending spree today.

Again, Baron mind that the ship is only here until Friday, August 6th. That’s less than 5 days away! After that, we’ll have a bit of time to wait for its next docking and the next costume contest winner to be announced.

More stuff awaits in Adventure Outfitters (including that ribbeting Frog Bucket Hat being modeled in the pics above), so stay tuned for our update on that soon! β˜€οΈπŸΈΒ 

Until next time, it’s time to spend those credits! Go! Go! Go! πŸ€‘

Bonus Items, Monthly Costume Contests, Social Media

Ice cream cat, how about that? πŸ¦πŸˆ

Hey Poptropicans, are you ready for costumes galore?? πŸ‘—

The Pop Creators received tons fantastic entries for July’s monthly costume contest β€” enough to create a picture slideshow nine minutes long! Just take a look at the fandom’s creativity:

Picking a winning design was “an impossibly hard choice to make,” according to the Creators’ Blog, but in the end they went with the Ice Cream Cat by Silver Flame. 🍦🐈 As promised, the costume will soon be available for free through the returning Baron’s airship. Sweet!

While the video above contains loads more amazing costume ideas (and some copyrighted characters like Bendy, Baldi, Minecraft creepers, and more), I’d like to highlight a few of my personal favorites with a mini slideshow of my own. Which ones caught your eye, and did you have a creation featured? Share with us in the comments!


In other news, we’ve made it to the end of July, which means the login challenge has wrapped up! If you managed to log in to Pop every day for the past 10 days, a bonus 5,000 credits should have automatically been added to your account today. Cha-ching!

That’s all for now! Check back tomorrow for some more fanciful Community Creations. Stay awesome, Poptropicans. ✌️✨
