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!

Best Halloween Party – Speedy Knuckle

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.

Funniest Photo – Tall Kid

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.

Most Creative Photo – Smart Glove

Every photo we got was creative. Smart Glove zoomed out to show Halloween from a perspective we hadn’t really seen before.

Scariest Photo – Maroon Bird

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.

To the winners and runner-ups: congrats! I’m sure that even if you didn’t win, your entry was spooktacular. 😉

So what did you guys dress up as this year? Share your Halloween stories below!

Lastly, if my calculations are correct #BacktotheFutureDay was this past Wednesday. Of course Poptropica had to celebrate, so they shared the image above. Woah… I guess the future… is now that past… that’s kinda weird. o_O So, um, why don’t we have hover-boards yet…? XD

ATPT Issue 2 – Halloween

Hey everyone! You may have heard that we are trying to bring back our magazine. It has only had one issue so far, but you guys seemed to like it. So, we are going to try to post a magazine (ATPT – ATPop Topics) at every major holiday/event, in place of The New Pop Times. This issue, of course, will be Halloween related! 😀

Remember, this is a tabloid, so you may not be able to trust all of the information given. However, the article about Speaking Up towards Bullying is completely true and is to be taken seriously. Click to enlarge the images below. If things are still a bit small for you, try pressing Ctrl while zooming in with the wheel on your mouse.

Thanks to everyone who has supported Adventure Time Pop so far! We are practically at 6,000 hits thanks to you guys! Seriously, your viewing has meant a lot. 🙂

Plus, a page will (hopefully) be put up for the magazine issues.

Anyway, have an awesome and safe Halloween! We hope you enjoyed the ATPop-Topics. 😛

…I need this… I can’t believe I only have Season 1 and 2… *cough* Anyway…

You may know that New York ComicCon has recently been up, so I found some sneak peeks of upcoming episodes that were featured at the event!

It has been so long since the last episode… I can’t wait! 😀

cardIn other news, from now until Novemember 1, you can get three spooky Cartoon Network apps for $4.99 (40% off original price). Of course, you’ll get credited for any of the apps you’ve already purchased.

What Happens on Poptropica Today Ends up on Tumbr Tomorrow (Plus More!)

Hey guys! The Creators have been checking out Tumbr recently and they’ve been taking screenshots of specific posts. Check them out!

Cute! Sadly, there haven’t been any behind the scenes images for any islands. Hopefully these random sketches (made by bored creators) and this buggy video will suffice.

Cool, but you know what’s even cooler? The ATP got a shout out! 😀

In addition, if you were wondering why there hasn’t been a new issue of The New Pop Times, it is because our special AT-Pop Topics magazine! You may remember it from last year, but there has only been one issue so far. Well, we have decided to try and make one issue for every big holiday. In this case, Halloween! Realize that this is a tabloid, so you may not be able to trust everything it says. 😀

ATP Halloween Party Recap!

I thought our party was pretty fun! I had to leave early and it wasn’t as active as our first party, but oh well.

We didn’t actually do much in the Poptropica Room, but I did beat HP and FB a couple times in it. 😛 Once the party got up and running we mostly just talked. A lot of Halloween talking (duh). Then we started to play Pictionary, but that kind of got out of hand. So, I held a Halloween Drawing Contest! Whoever drew the best zombie won (see end of post for winner)! Of course GS had to be unique and literally drew the word Z-O-M-B-I-E. 🙂 After that, Sam started to say a ton of Chuck Norris jokes. (If you don’t know him, click here. He’s like the go to guy of awesome. Oh and before Chuck came along it was Charles Nelson Reily.) I had to join in on the jokes, although FB didn’t know who Chuck was, so he was a bit confused. 😆

party recap

All in all, I had a fun time and I hope all of can come to our next party! Sorry for those of you who didn’t make it.

Party Night!

Hey everyone! Just a reminder, the ATP’s Halloween Party is tonight! I can’t wait to find out what your costume was and how your night went. 🙂 The party is in about an hour.

Party time everybody! I know we didn’t have a big Halloween costume contest, so I wanted to celebrate the spooktacular holiday another way!

ATP party 2

First, I want to thank Samwow5 for letting us use his Xat site. 🙂

If you don’t live in the EST time zone, use this time converter to find out what time the party is for you. (EST is sometimes called EDT as well.) Please check back here every day though because some of the information may change!

The party will most likely spread onto a Poptropica Room. Maybe we’ll have a little Halloween themed doodle contest! I hope you can come! 😀 (I guess this is kind of celebrating our new author too!)

I hope you can come!
