It’s finally June, Poptropicans. I know summer doesn’t start officially until like June 20th or 21st or 22nd or something, but it sure feels like summer to me. And since it also just happens to be the first day of the month, it’s time to start…
Monthly Costume Contests!
You might have remembered how I briefly mentioned these monthly contests in the post that explained this blog’s new schedule (check out the post here), and if you didn’t, who cares, as I will go into more detail today!
On the first day of a new month (like today), I will announce the winners from the previous month (unlike today) and then the contest for that month. Each month will have a different theme, and all costumes must be about that theme, if not then the costume will be eliminated. You can only enter once each month, and you can do this by either posting the link that shows your outfit from the Poptropica Avatar Studio or DMing it to me on Discord. You can also email it to me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, but I would prefer the previous two ways. I barely check those emails anymore.
A few other things…
- Everything must be kid-friendly.
- If you win one month, you get a point. Whoever gets the most points by the end of the year will get to have an interview with me that will be posted on the blog.
- If you don’t win, please don’t spam with hate comments or anything like that. Being a sore loser like that may end up with you not being able to enter the next month’s contest.
Now that you know the basic rules, it’s time to announce this month’s theme, which is…
Fun in the Sun!
Make a summer-themed costume that’s perfect for the beach. Happy summer Poptropicans!
The contest starts NOW!!!
Oh, and sometime this week, probably on Friday, I’ll be adding a page for the contests, which will include a hall of fame for all the winners. I’ll also be updating (NOT deleting) the two Totem Curse pages, because of it’s cancellation, and maybe even the UPIS page, that sure is outdated. A page for Island Reviews and other stuff on my blog will probably be made sometime this weekend.
That’s all for today. Get styling! -Tall Cactus
Wait just a minute. I know this has nothing to do with the contest, but it’s too crazy to not tell you guys about it. It is Wednesday, and I would have had another random post if it wasn’t the first day of June.
So, today I was bored at school, and I began looking through some of the books in the back of the classroom, and I just so happened to find a little book called Secret Santa: Agent of X.M.A.S.. But why am I talking about a Christmas spy book in June? Well, I found a summary of the book online, and found out that the villain’s name in it is…
Dr. Cumulus Nimbus
You know, the same exact name of the somewhat forgotten villain in the Pop Blimp Adventure Miniquest…
But it just gets worse…
The Santa spy book was published in 2010. And the Blimp Adventure game HAD to had come out after that. So did the Creators copy this villain? Sure, they may have copied the name, but the actual appearance? We will never find out…or will we? The book has happens to have illustrations in it. But the book isn’t very well-known, so it’s not like I can find pictures of it on Google. I do have a plan, however. Tomorrow morning at school, I’ll flip through the book and try to find an illustration of their version of Dr. Cumulus Nimbus and see if it looks like the picture above. If not, the Creators probably didn’t copy, and if it does, then the Creators will get busted! Unfortunately, phones and other electronics are banned during class, so I won’t be able to get a picture of the book illustration. You’ll have to just take my word for it.
I’ll see you tomorrow, when this case gets solved…hopefully.
You should get styling before that though, as I will be busy tomorrow night and the post may be out a couple hours later than usual.
