Hey!

So sorry for being so inactive, guys!

I’m currently back on Poptropica after forgetting about it for a couple of months, and I think I’m going to focus on making costumes rather than actually finishing the islands, because I can’t play the SUI islands.

Sorry for the Inactivity

Hi guys, Nicey here.

Sorry for the inactivity…Whoever’s reading this.

I’ve been really busy this year, and I’m also working on another blog poptropicanawesomeness.wordpress.com 

And I’m REALLY SORRY I haven’t been posting! I’ve been posting there more often, but now I’m really, really short on authors, and I would really appreciate it if you could help me out here 🙂

PS lula4schmidt from The Pop and Bop blog may be joining soon once she accepts the request! 🙂

New Poptropics Books

Hi guys, Nicey here!

Most of you would’ve heard about the Poptropics Books series, featuring the origins and facts related to several Poptropica Islands. Guess what, more are coming out! Two new books called Scary Monsters and Wild West is coming out, and they are available for pre-order on Amazon NOW!

New Poptopics books are coming soon!

We’re just a few weeks away from the release of two more books in our Poptopics series. These books explore the real-world facts that inspired some of your favorite Poptropica Islands. The truth can sometimes be stranger than fiction!

Scary Monsters gives you the low down on the myths and legends behind the creatures you’ve encountered in your adventures on Cryptids Island, Vampire’s Curse Island, Zomberry Island, and more. All of these monsters have a basis in fact — and we’ll reveal them to you!

Wild West is all about the amazing true history of the American frontier. Find out what parts of Wild West Island are made up, and which are based on fact. You might be surprised to learn which is which!

Both of these books will be released on February 20, and are available for pre-order now from Amazon.

Has anyone pointed this out?

Hi guys, Nicey here.

Has anyone noticed this? Instead of “Island Tour” next to the blimp on the Poptropica Home Page, it now says “About Poptropica”.

aboutpoptropica-1

Clicking on it will open a Youtube Video, featuring an updated version of the Poptropica Tour until Virus Hunter Island and the release of the second costume Galactic Hot Dogs advertisement.

I think the cool thing about the video is the island popping-up animation that the Creators made:

Monster Information

Hi guys, Nicey here. As you should know, MCI is coming out, after 5 years of hopes and wishes! (I posted about it previously anyway). The Monster Carnival Island Information page is out too, check it out here.

monsterCarnivalChar

In the dead of night, a caravan rumbles into town. The traveling carnival has returned! But this is no day at the park. Behind the lights and the laughter, the carnival harbors a dark secret. Buy a ticket if you dare, but beware — once you enter, you may never be able to escape the Monster Carnival!

This reminds me of the Geronimo Stilton’s The Peculiar Pumpkin Thief, where an evil clown steals everyone’s Halloween decorations and uses them to build a Mystery Mouse Theme Park, which he uses to lure all of New Mouse City’s mice and lock them in, meanwhile getting his clown cronies to rob everyone’s houses. Of course, Geronimo saves the day in the end.

Anyway, what goes up must come down, but what goes in does not necessarily come out….beware the Ringmaster!

Bonus Quest

Monster Carnival Island Bonus Quest image

The town is safe, but now a prominent citizen is missing. Has the monster carnival claimed another victim, or is something else behind his disappearance?

Exclusive Items

Members get an additional Monster Carnival gear pack, which includes Ringmaster costume, Hypno-Powder item, and Raven Swarm power. The Ringmaster costume is ONLY available until the end of Early Access!

Once again, magic in a can! Enjoy, members (when it comes out)!

Don’t forget there are always extras! Here is the:

Red eyes…that’s a first! I just like what the PHB suggested in a post, Monster Carnival Island’s trailer does not include “Now with sound”, which means it MAY be released in Poptropica’s original index format, and this means there is a possibility we will be able to costumize those malevolent red eyes from that vicious monster! Talking about malevolent, doesn’t the clown in the Ferris Wheel of the photo look strange? It looks different from this one:

And why are the lights green at night? Any ideas? Maybe it’s after the Carnival turns evil under the influence of the Ringmaster!

I have grown an irrational bias against the Ringmaster. Anyway, he sucks, and Ringmasters don’t really have good reputations. Anyway, maybe the cheery outlook of Monster Carnival and these pictures have finally explained why recent Daily Pops for Monster Carnival Island have been showing terrifying three-eyed beasts and at the same time cute lovey-dovey couple pictures. Seeing them together just gave me the creeps.

I'm guessing this is the common room...I don't think an ice cream parlour deserves to be wrecked by monsters!

Escaped Animals!

This doesn't really give me an excellent feeling...

This reminds me of Twisted Thicket.

Finally, something positive.

Finally, something positive.

The last picture is making me wonder if Poptropica’s going to do that two-world format they used for Red Dragon and Time Tangled, which separates the real world from the thwarted Carnival World. I’m not sure, but those islands are always exciting and fun, since there is such a drastic difference between a psycho carnival and an innocent auto-repair shop. Or is there?

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2×2

Hi guys, there are 2 Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs advertisements!

The first one is a video advertisement. After watching a video, you will receive the Barry Costume, which technically turns you red and covers your face.

Double Barry!

Double Barry!

The next advertisement is a quest advertisement. Basically, when you go in, Flint will tell you that they need help to get their boat across the foodimal seas. Anyway, you just have to click the jump button whenever a foodimal appears on the waters, or they’ll slow you down and you’ll lose if you hit too many of you. It requires a lot of fast reaction and hand-eye coordination!

After you’re finished, you receive the animated Bacon Cheeseburger hair and Steve back item (Good limited edition items to have after the advertisement is no longer in Poptropica!)

Cheespiders and Steve!

Cheespiders and Steve!

Have fun!

The Top 50 Islands

Hi guys, Nicey here.

Don’t be mistake by the post title. There are no 50 islands on Poptropica ^.^

The Creators have posted that the Top 50 Poptropica Dream Island Contest Finalists are out! Don’t worry, 50 new fan-made islands are NOT going to be created all at once. The creators are just going to need a little more time to decide. I can’t wait what the next island and first ever fan-made island is going to be!

contestEntries

 

OMG is that a blue cap? That’ll be so cool! Just hoping the new island will be Poptropica’s classic index version so that the Costumizer is still available!

Speaking of Poptropica Index Versions, I recently came across a PHB Post mentioning that since the Monster Carnival Island teaser did not have a “Now with Sound” unlike all the island trailers, Monster Carnival Island may be released in the Index Version just like it was supposed to be before! YES I love the index version… It’s not glitch, the navigation is smoother and most importantly, who doesn’t want COSTUMIZER?

Have Fun!

Islands Come and Go…but whatever goes must come back

Hi guys, Nicey here.

I know this is really late, but the thing is, I have to focus more on studying now because I have this big exam called the PSLE, which means I’ll be posting less often… sorry 😦

1st of all, Mocktropica is out for all!! EVERYONE CAN PLAY NOW! Finally 😀 My sister was really caught up on playing the Megafightingbots monitor in the university for O Captain, My Captain (she said it was a Dead Poets Society Reference because the real poem O Captain! My Captain by Walt Whitman was there) and she was almost going to win the final round (after winning the first and losing the second) and Safety Bot had like, 1mm of health and then she died D: It happened twice

Anyway, second of all, MONSTER CARNIVAL ISLAND IS THE NEXT ISLAND!! FINALLY, AFTER FIVE LONG PAINFUL YEARS OF WAITING! (Sorry.) Thanks, Creators!

The creators mentioned that “dreams do come true, then again nightmares do”. It means they finally actually LISTENED TO US! YEAH!

Now it’s just more waiting….

~Nicey

PS A new author, Silly Pelican, is going to join Poptropica Costumes Closet! I haven’t sent her the invitation yet, but I will soon once she gives me her username 😀

Tomorrow and Today

HI guys, Nicey here! I know this is late, but Mocktropica Island Bonus Quest featuring Live Megafightingbots is now out for Members! Members play now! Also note that there is less than 24 hours until the Unfinished Costume disappears from the Poptropica Store for almost, forever, so for members, don’t wait! Since the Unfinished Costume is “finishing” up, it also means that Mocktropica will be online for ALL players (16 Jan 2014)! Finally!

So for members, don’t wait! For non-members, I guess you have to wait…

~Nicey

Guess what guys? PCC is here!

Hi guys, Nicey here. I’ve renamed this blog to be Poptropica Costumes Closet. I’m sorry for the confusion about creating a new blog… It’s just my OCD acting up again because I have so many uncategorized and untagged posts. Nobody’s perfect, and I guess everyone has to learn 🙂

So, anyway, breaking news!

1. The Nut Job: A new Advertisement

Hi guys, Nicey here. There’s a new ad on Poptropica called The Nut Job.

nut-job

Surly the Squirrel from the movie will be outside and will tell you that he’s got “a plan”. Get into the tree and talk to him again. He’ll explain you have to shoot nuts from Maury’s Nut Shop over to him so that he can get away with the nuts. Not a very good plan, but whatever. Squirrels don’t really have the largest brains.

nut-job1

In the minigame, You have to click on the meter bar when it is at the left section of the green zone. Don’t aim the catapult to near or too far or the nuts won’t make it into Surly’s sack.

nut-job2

Don’t shoot it like that.

Don’t forget that you have a time limit as well! If you shoot enough nuts to fill up the bar at the left (seen above), you will win the minigame and get Surly Power and Pistachio Costume!

nut-job3

~Nicey

(There’s also a new Video Ad. Check it out!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2. We’re going to finish the Unfinished!

You should all know about the Unfinished Costume for Members. Because Mocktropica is finally going to be released to all people on 16th January, the Limited Time Unfinished costume is also leaving… So members, don’t wait! For non-members, you just have to wait 😦 Sorry…

unfinished

3. The Rotten Video Advertisements

Though I haven’t seen an actual loading screen video ad yet, I’ve read about it from a post by my friend HPuterpop from The PHB. (View the post here)

Don’t you remember what your Poptropican told the woman in purple about advertisements? “That’s really rotten for our players” and “You’re the one behind all those annoying ads, I should kick you in the shin!” (or something like that).

Well, she deserves some kicks. No wonder her shins are so bruised. Is this just a joke, or are the Creators keen on making the advertisements even more rotten? At least those ones on Main Street is fine because you have a choice to play it or not (and even get a prize for it). Why don’t they put the ads on Main Street? It’s just not fair.

What do you think?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4. Apologies

When I checked the comments the other day, I found out that I had 75 spam comments deleted and there was one pending spam that wasn’t spam at all! I think it was because WordPress felt the comments were too long. I’m really sorry if you commented about a costume or something but it didn’t get released or something… I’m really sorry and didn’t mean to disapprove your comment if the comment you commented was counted as spam! I’ll find a way to change the settings or ask my friends for help 🙂 I hope you understand 🙂 I’ll fix it ASAP!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5. Thank-yous and Be an Author!

I currently have no active authors (Unless Starlight Autumn is coming back; but I think she’s currently on hiatus like Super Thunder in the past) So I’m happy to accept someone who wants to be one! As long as you like making costumes, have good Grammar and is responsible (e.g. please tell me if you’re going to offline for a long time! :D) There are currently NO RULES after you’ve become an author unless you do awfully terrible things… you will then be punished by having rules applying only to you. I hope that will never happen.

Thank you for your support! I thought that no one was seeing my blog, but I saw that there was the few of you who have been following and reading my blog! Thank you (and sorry if your comments were not approved D:) and PCC is back!

I would also like to thank HPuterpop, who has helped me design a header and blog icon! He’s good at computer art and even has a Poptropican Portraits Series :D.
