Costume Contest WINNERS!!

It's time to announce the winners of the 2020 Poptropica costume design contest! We got A LOT of entries, and it was so exciting to see what kinds of looks you guys have in mind for the game!

Remember, even if your drawing doesn't appear on this list, it has without a doubt made a valuable impression on our art team as we move forward into the new year! There will also be more contests and opportunities to be featured on Poptropica very soon. Remember, all art is subjective, so if you didn't place as high as you would have liked, don't let it get you down! The best part of this contest was seeing artists of all experience levels share their ideas with us!

Now... Without further ado... the winners!

DRUMROLL PLEASE!!!

The winner of the Grand Prize, whose design will be created for the in-game Store and will be given 6 months of free membership, is Instagram user @bianca_donka!


We chose Bianca's Lightning Wielder for its snappy gesture, sharp silhouette, and strong stylistic integrity to the Poptropica aesthetic! This Poptropican is gonna give Zeus a run for his money, with lightning powers and, might I add, MUCH cooler hair. Additionally, it would be a crime not to share these other drawings she sent with her entry:


Maybe we need to start giving Poptropicans eyebrows...

Runners up!! These Poptropicans will each get a free month of membership! In no particular order, we have:

Sunflower Cordial, by @otheraccidk! Our art director really likes this one for its 70's-style look. Both looks are simple and effective with a unique flair and a great color scheme. Well done!!


Porcelain Chicken, by @bylophim! This is one of my absolute favorites. I love the little chick followers! Especially the guy with a tiny crack pecking at the ground T_T I'd look amazing with a chicken hat...


Rounding off the runners up is RadioactivePup with Sharp Beatz! This electrifying look is designed to react to the background music with that sweet soundbar visor, and I've always wanted a pair of those cat ear headphones.



Finally, but certainly not least, the Honorable Mentions! You will find all of these artists' IG handles on their respective artwork, so make sure to give them a follow. This community is full of so many amazing artists and designers!











That's all, folks! Thanks again to EVERYONE who took the time to create an entry, and remember that we always love seeing what you come up with! The Lightning Wielder will be zapping into a Store near you in the near future!
