Ready, set, GO! February’s costume contest begins now! 🎨
Today’s been a busy day full of updates and new arrivals, but it’s not over just yet. Alongside the Baron’s arrival, the beginning of each month is accompanied by the start of another costume contest! Woohoo!
Let’s get this show on the road. February’s costume contest begins in 3, 2, 1…
February’s costume contest is now underway! These monthly contests offer all players (of any skill set) the opportunity to see your dream outfits become a reality in Poptropica! Yep, you heard that right. Your costume idea could be the next design created in-game and shared among millions across the Pop community! 👀
February’s costume contest will be open until Wednesday, February 16th at 8pm PST (11pm EST / 10pm CST / 9pm MST / for all other time zones, please use a time zone converter). That’s a little more than two weeks to think of a costume design, draw it out, and enter your outfit ideas in the contest. Don’t be afraid to go all out! The Team loves seeing your imaginations shine! You can illustrate your idea using paper and pencil or create it digitally – any mode you’re comfortable with is fine by us!
Once you’ve finished your costume designs, you can share them with us a few different ways. The simplest way to enter your designs into the contest is by using the submissions page! Be sure to include your Poptropican’s name and your login username with your design. Please be aware that there is a three entry maximum per person each month.
If you’re on social media, you can also share your costume design on Instagram for others to see your idea! Remember to tag us (@poptropicacreators) and use the hashtag #MyPoptropicaCostume – we’ll repost your costume design to our story to share your work! If you post your designs on Instagram, please send us a link to your post through the submissions page!
To start brainstorming your outfit designs, here’s a few tips!
First and foremost, you have free reign over your design! You can opt for island inspired clothing or go in a completely different direction. Are you in love with wacky, mysterious, otherworldly, fantasy, simple, or just downright weird costumes? Are you hoping to see the latest fashion trends?
Perhaps you’d like to share your favorite IRL outfit with players? Are you excited by the thought of sharing your costume designs and art on a larger scale? Do you have an eye for streetwear, goth gear, or are you in love with cottage-core clothes? Maybe you have a quirky sense of style that you think others haven’t seen before?
Don’t worry if you prefer to march to the beat of your own drum. Creativity and originality are always appreciated!
Keep these tips in mind as you’re designing your outfit:
- Your costume submission should be original!
- Get creative! Look for inspiration in your favorite looks that you can put your own spin on! From TV/film, your personal wishlist outfits, career uniforms, and celebrity sightings, you can design just about anything!
- Costumes may also include accessories and special powers.
- While designing your entry, be sure it can be reproduced as a Poptropica Costume. Avoid including tiny details would be hard to recreate and using previous store costumes. Where’s the fun in that?
Don't be discouraged if your design hasn’t been chosen in the past! We’re blown away by the incredible amount of creativity and unique costume designs each month. We wish they could all be winners! You’re also more than welcome to resubmit past design submissions or come up with new costume ideas for each month's contest!
Good luck, everyone! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the contest, don’t hesitate to drop them below! We can’t wait to see what you dream up! 👏🤩
