Top 5 Picks

Gem Costumes by LilPoptrystalTemp

LilPoptrystalTemp - Gem Costumes

Super creative! A continuation of our other Steven Universe costumes, these outfits totally match their cartoon counterparts. Accurately portraying someone in Poptropica can be a difficult task, but these designs get pretty darn close to their characters. From left to right, we have Peridot, Lapis Lazuli, Jasper, Rose Quartz, Ruby, Sapphire, Aquamarine, Topaz, Sardonyx, Opal, and Sugilite. And each account comes with a username. Plus, I love the attention to detail in each Poptropican name. They perfectly suit the personality of each character while staying true to classic Poptropica names! Great work, I can tell this took effort! Find her DeviantArt here.

Spy Wars by Cuddly Knuckle

Cuddly Knuckle - Spy Wars

Given the somewhat recent movie release, a Star Wars crossover is very appropriate! The mashup works super well with Spy Island too. I think we could find lots of similarities between B.A.D. and the Dark Side, right? I wonder if B.A.D. has cookies… Anyway, this is a cool action pose and there’s definitely strong attention towards lighting. Nice! Find his DeviantArt here.

Twilight Sparkle by HfEvra

HfEvra - Twilight Sparkle

Great editing! Any of our viewers My Little Pony fans? Even if you’re not, I think we can all agree this is an accurate representation of Twilight Sparkle in Poptropica. Even more so, the designs are all in a Poptropica Worlds art style! Hooves Fingers and all! They totally look like actual, in-game costumes. I love that a suitable background was included, as well as a variety of outfits! Find her DeviantArt here.

Gingerbright by Purple Seagull

Purple Seagul - Gingerbright (Cookie Run)

Not as much detail, but still super cool! For you Cookie Run fans out there, have you ever wondered what GingerBright would look like in Poptropica? Well, wonder no more! This cute little character would fit in perfectly with some of Poptropica’s more lighthearted adventures, and definitely looks like both GingerBright and a Poptropican, cookie crumbs and all!  There’s even a bit of shading to help her pop. She’s so cute I could almost eat her up! Find the artist often in the comment section.

Train to Zomberry Island by ANNE14TCO

ANNE14TCO - Train to Zomberry Island

Now here’s a change in mood! On the more intense end of the spectrum is Train to Busan, a Korean zombie film. This pick is an interesting contrast to the world of Poptropica, which just goes to show you how diverse our community is. Still, the comparison to Zomberry Island is perfect of course. The lighting and emotion in this piece is fantastic! It puts me on the edge of my seat for a thriller. Plus, the movie poster format is quite creative, fitting both sides of the crossover (with a little reference to Back Lot Island). Amazing work! Find her DeviantArt here.


Honorable Mentions

 

 


February: How do I Participate?

Community Creations is a cool series for anyone in the Poptropica community to join in on. To sum up what it’s about, it’s basically a chance to show off your artwork, creepy fan-fic, realms, costumes, and anything else that pops into your mind.

If we really like the piece you submit, we will feature it here on the PHB! As long as it relates to that month’s theme. So what is February’s theme? February’s theme is…

Colorful!

Valentine’s Day is coming up and that means it’s been one full year of Community Creations! Last year we kicked things off with “shipping” and the rest is history. Anyway, February is a time of love and friendship, so why not express that through our creations? While colorful can literally mean using a bunch of vibrant colors, it can also just refer to a creative, positive mood.

So with that in mind, there is a bunch you could make! Use bright, bold colors in some cheesy Poptropica Valentine’s Day cards. Dress up your Poptropican in a crazy, vibrant costume. Draw your Poptropican and a bunch of your friends hanging out and just having fun. Write a positive, poppy love story. The list goes on!

I am a robot.

Well, Mr./Ms. Robot, maybe you need something to go with that accent! Try on these brand-new suits, now available for 75 credits each at the Poptropica Store (Thanks, Incredible Fish):

Also, we seem to have found Binary Bard’s Poptropica account! (Thanks to many of you who helped to point this out.) Using Motionman95‘s Poptropica Image Generator, we’ve found that Binary Bard (a Poptropica Creator who posts on the PCB) has his own personal account on Poptropica (which he probably used to spread the mechanical flu), and his login username is “binarybard”!

http://www.coderkid.co.cc/PoptropicaPHP.php?login=BinaryBard

You can tell that this account belongs to a Creator because of the Poptropican name – “Binary Bard”. This would not be possible for a regular player. Other notes for this account: it’s wearing the Binary Bard’s jester clothing from Astro-Knights Island, along with the half-metal face, red cyborg eye, and huge grin. He’s also holding the nunchuk handheld item, which can be found on the ninja costume (purchasable at the Poptropica Store).

To spice things up a little, the Poptropica Creators will soon be adding balloons to the Poptropica Store, which you’ll be able to create! Thanks for the news report, Agdogr1997 (Super Grape). Take a look at the video below for a cool idea of what they’re like:

As you can see, there will be several options for these balloons, including a pink heart, yellow smiley face, and a red-and-black ladybug! Also, Deathstalker found something very interesting:

These cute floating shapes are going to be called “Emotaloons”! (Probably from the words emote and balloon) There will be a “Create” button on its item card so that you can edit your Emotaloon. The description for this item is, “Express yourself with your own Emotaloon!” You can also see that they will be a Poptropica Store item because of the starry background on the item card.

Planning on taking a little holiday soon? Tours at Time Tangled Island seem to be all the rage these days! VladtheViking has generously provided all of us with an absolutely awesome video showing a trailer of this twisted island, complete with twinkling music! (Thanks, Obiwan2324) Check it out:

Astro-Knights Island seems quite popular too, according to the current poll at the Poptropica Creators’ Blog. Here are the approximate results (may vary later because the poll isn’t over yet):

Option | Number of Votes | Percentage
Early Poptropica | 83 | 1%
Shark Tooth | 87 | 1%
Time Tangled | 170 | 3%
24 Carrot | 96 | 1%
Super Power | 264 | 5%
Spy | 467 | 9%
Nabooti | 125 | 2%
