PHB Halloween 2015: Sun and Moon!

Hey guys! This is the guide to our first entry to the Poptropica Help Blog’s Halloween Costume Contest this year. Well, since we’re two people, we did a joint thing, where we have two costumes that we’ve both collaborated on of a similar theme as one submission. As you probably noticed from the heading, this one’s Sun and Moon, and both costumes are lovely!

10/31/2015 UPDATE: GUYS, THE PHOTO SUBMISSION FOR THIS WON SECOND PLACE IN THE PHB’S CONTEST! πŸ˜€ Keep reading to find out how to dress like the winners! πŸ˜‰

The Zodiacs: Scorpio

Here are the next costumes in our zodiac series! Because this range of time, October 24 to November 1, is Scorpio, that’s our sign!


SD Scorpio

Spectacular Scorpio

By Spotted Dragon

As a water element that needs a color scheme involving red, Scorpio was a doozy! I think this came out pretty well, though!
1. Get the hair from the Gamer Girl costume in the Store or from the girl in black on Main Street, Cryptids. *I wanted something sleek and straight but definitely interesting to embody this sign!
2. Get the curved bangs with the gold earrings from the girl outside CJ’s house on Shrink Ray. *Scorpio is represented by a scorpion, and scorpions have curved tails, so I emulated that with these bangs. Also, one of Scorpio’s birth month gemstones is citrine, which is yellow, so I wanted to include that, too.
3. Get the swept fringe from Spotted Dragon’s photos or from her closet. This used to be on Reality TV, but the NPC was replaced. However, it’s very easy to find in common rooms, as it’s very popular! *I wanted to give that layered, complex look to the hair, the same kind of appearance that Scorpio is known for.
4. Get the top from the girl dressed as a Viking in the bathroom line on PoptropiCon Ep. 1: Line Forms Here. *Scorpions are normally black, so I added that element!
5. Get the plain red skirt from Spotted Dragon’s Arabian Nights photo. *Red is Scorpio’s main color, so I wanted to include that as much as possible.
6. Get the pearl necklace from the lady dressed in black inside the B.A.D. Bistro on Spy Island. *Scorpio’s element is water, so I added pearls, which come from water!
7. Get the belt from the lady in blue inside the princess’s room on Astro Knights Island. *Again, citrine! I also wanted to include a white/silver part to this color scheme, as red/black/silver gave off a mysterious impression that is one of Scorpio’s traits, along with incorporating a little white topaz that could also represent opal, Scorpio’s other birthstones.
8. Get the lips from the Biker Girl costume in the Store, or just costumize it from Spotted Dragon’s photos. *Red!
9. From the free Colorizer inside the New You shop on Home Island (or maybe the Colorizer gold card from the store, though it’s a bit of a waste now), dye your hair a deep red. You have lots of room with this, so pick your favorite shade! *Again, red is Scorpio’s color!
You’re done!

Modern Scorpio
By Jumpy Starfish
Hey guys! So since this month’s zodiac is Scorpio, I decided to do something lusty and red. Scorpio’s not just about the scorpion, there’s other factors, that are included in my costume below. Pearls for its element of water, and red for the color of the scorpion. Hope you enjoy!
1. Get the shirt from the devil costume in the store. (It’s free)
2. Get a plain black skirt from a randomized NPC. (Make sure the legs are bare)
3. Get the hair from the red mythology surfer in the store. (Note that this costs 75 credits, so if you don’t have that much or you don’t want to spend it, then a nice alternative is the hair from the purple sunbather in Poseiden’s realm in Mythology Island.)
4. Get the plain bangs from the girl next to Mike’s Market in Reality TV Island.
5. Get the pearl necklace from girl in pink from Golden Harbor in Skullduggery Island.
6. Get the lips from the biker girl in the store. (If not, then any red lips would work)
That’s it! Thanks for reading!

That’s all for now! We’ll be posting out Halloween stuff soon, especially as we’re participating in the PHB (poptropicahelp.net) Halloween Costume Contest 2015! We want to post the guides so that you can all wear the fabulous stuff we’ve come up with!

The Zodiacs: Libra

Hello all! We are going to start a series for zodiac signs on Poptropica. Not all of our costumes are series, but many of them are. Because the sign for this month is Libra, that’s what we’re going to start with!


The Zodiacs: The Modern Libra
The Modern Libra
By Jumpy Starfish
1. Get the shirt from Spotted Dragon’s Skullduggery Photo. (Friend hermionegranger8989)
2. Get a plain, black skirt. (Make sure the legs are bare) You can find this on a randomized NPC from any island.
3. Get the red leather jacket from Sasha Capone on Poptropicon: Spoiler Alert!
4. Get the hair from the Vampire Girl 1 costume in the store. (It’s free)
5. Get the bangs from the lady in orange with the fruit on Mythology Island.
6. Get any soft lips.
That’s it! Thanks for reading!

The Zodiacs: Classic Libra (Spotted Dragon)

Lovely Libra

By Spotted Dragon

  1. Get the shirt from the girl in blue on Main Street, Mythology (NOT the one with fruit on her head!). *This is a symmetrical tank top, and, as Libra is balanced scales, this fits perfectly! Also, Libra’s element is air, and the sign itself is very focused on cool colors, so I chose something in a pretty shade of sky blue.
  2. Get the belt from Triton on the beach of Poseidon’s realm on Mythology. *The white accessories reference opal, the birthstone of October, which is the main month of Libra.
  3. Get the hair from Aphrodite on the beach of Poseidon’s realm on Mythology. *Roses are one of Libra’s flowers. Also, the color of the roses is reminiscent of tourmaline, also one of Libra’s birthstones.
  4. Get the skirt from the policewoman outside the Costumizer booth (Tessa Turncoat) on PoptropiCon: Line Forms Here (the first episode) or on any other PoptropiCon episodes she appears on. *Again, Libra, air element, so floaty clothing.
  5. Get the bangs from poptropicacostumecreator ‘s closet. I have no clue where they’re from, but I saw them, liked them, and managed to get ahold of them! *They certainly look nice, and they add a little extra interesting detail to a costume that might otherwise be passed off as plain. Pop star bangs/earrings are a lovely alternative, if you prefer them!
  6. Get the lips from the girl in the grey skirt on Main Street, Cryptids, or from the Angel costume in the Store. (The purple lips from the girl inside Herc’s Hero Hut on Mythology, or Aphrodite’s lips, or Pop Star lips, are pretty alternatives.) *Again, symmetry!
  7. Get the necklace from the girl in pink on Golden Harbor on Skullduggery. (Or from poptropicacostumecreator ‘s closet, if you don’t want to go all the way there.) *Again, white accessories
  8. Go to Home Island, and go inside the New You shop. Use the colorizer there to dye your hair a deep blue-violet. A bluish lavender also looks pretty, if you want to try that out! *One of Libra’s flowers is the bluebell, and so I incorporated that color into my costume.
  9. OPTIONAL: Get the golden butterfly follower from the classic pack. *Butterflies are symmetrical, and they also fly in the air! This is just an fairylike, ethereal touch for this look.
You’re done!

Tune in next month for Scorpio! We’ll also be posting some other lovely costumes in between that time, including our spoooooky Halloween stuff!

Hello World!

Hey guys! This is Spotted Dragon and Jumpy Starfish, with a fabulous costume blog for Poptropica!

The idea for the Poptropica Costume Creators – the PCC – originally came to Spotted Dragon’s mind on July 7, 2012. It was originally just an exchange of costumes through email. Later on January 21, 2013, Jumpy Starfish suggested that a website be made, and so Spotted Dragon createdΒ Poptropica Costumes R Us, the very first PCC site! This all went through a hiatus that has lasted about a year. Now we’ve picked up the idea again, and, well, here we are!

We want to make costumes on Poptropica because, well, it’s fun! We do themes, al0ng with just fun costumes that we decide to post on here. And we’re open to all sorts of ideas; perhaps makeovers or fashion shows or anything that you guys come up with? This is a fresh blog, and we want to make it special!

Please stay tuned, and we promise we won’t abandon this one like we did the other!

Hope you like us and what we do!
