Halloween Photo Booth Challenge winners!

We've looked at thousands of entries in Poptropica's Halloween Photo Booth Challenge. They made us laugh, they made us scream, they made us -- well, not cry, exactly, but some of them were pretty poignant!

As promised, we've selected one winner and five runners-up in each category. Without further ado, here they are!

Best Costume - Golden Typhoon


Best costume in Poptropica's Halloween Photo Booth.
Golden Typhoon didn't just make a great werewolf costume -- she also posed it mid-transformation for a dramatic photo. Look how the other wolves are welcoming the newest member of their pack! Creepy!

Great runners up, too, including characters inspired by some of your favorite movies and comic books.

Best Halloween Party - Speedy Knuckle


Best Halloween Party in Poptropica's Halloween Photo Booth.
Judging by the entries we received in this category, Poptropicans know how to get down! Please invite us to all of your future parties. Our winner was Speedy Knuckle, whose composition and character poses made for a rockin' good time.

Special mention to the runners up, each of whom brought a fun twist to the idea of a Halloween party.

Funniest Photo - Tall Kid


Funniest Photo in Poptropica's Halloween Photo Booth.
Tons of hilarious entries in this category. In the end, we had to give the top spot to Tall Kid, who gave us three monsters (and two bats) chasing a poor Poptropican in a hot dog costume. We always knew that would get you in the end.

You're not seeing double in the runners-up. Fast Lizard placed twice, and with good reason!

Most Creative Photo - Smart Glove


Most Creative Photo in Poptropica's Halloween Photo Booth.
Every photo we got was creative. Smart Glove zoomed out to show Halloween from a perspective we hadn't really seen before.

Check out the runners up for some clever and fun storytelling, too.

Scariest Photo - Maroon Bird


Scariest Photo in Poptropica's Halloween Photo Booth.
The Jersey Devil found his way into a lot of the scariest photos, but it was Maroon Bird's contribution to the Slenderman tale that earned top honors in this category.

Pretty much all of these are a little too scary, though. Maybe you should scroll back up to the funny ones.

The winners in each category will now have their avatars and their photos added to the Photo Booth for the next week. So if you want to get up close and personal with the winning entries, go to Poptropica now and try out the Halloween Photo Booth!

Thanks to everyone who contributed. Happy Halloween!

Feed the monsters in Poptropica Realms!

Maybe you've noticed some monsters creeping around Poptropica Realms lately. They've got some pretty surprising behaviors!

See, now monsters can get hungry. And if you feed them -- for instance, the nice bowl of spaghetti and meatballs my pal Hazmat Hermit has laid down in the picture above -- they'll become friendlier. And friendly monsters tend to drop Poptanium!

So visit Poptropica and check out the latest amazing updates to Poptropica Realms.

Halloween Classics: Ghost Story Island!


Continuing our look at some of the creepiest quests on Poptropica, today we feature Ghost Story Island.

This is one of our most sprawling stories. You'll visit locations like an abandoned prison, a lighthouse, and a cemetery that hides a few secrets. Yes, the ghosts are real, but there's more to this tale than that. It's spooky, a little sad, and, in the end, a bit romantic, too.

Ghost Story Island is famous among Poptropicans for a few reasons, not the least of which is an unexpected voice! We recommend playing this one with headphones for that reason. If you've never encountered it, you are missing out on one of the great moments in Poptropica. You might just fall out of your seat.

Ghost Story Island is free to play on Poptropica, along with dozens of other Islands. Visit Poptropica now to play this free adventure!

Halloween Classics: Monster Carnival!

With just a few weeks to go until Halloween, it's time to get in the spirit of the season. We've done a lot of spooky Islands on Poptropica, and one of our favorites is Monster Carnival.

Longtime Poptropicans know Monster Carnival as the "lost" Island, which was placed on the travelmap in 2008, and removed without explanation, only to finally resurface in early 2014. Considering this Island's creepy soundtrack, terrifying monsters, and tragic storyline, we think it was worth the wait!

Monster Carnival is free for everyone to play -- so head to Poptropica and see if you can withstand the terror!
