September's Eerie Airship and Rumpel's Reveal: Now Open! ?‍☠️

Better late than never – September’s Baron has finally arrived, safe and well! However, the same cannot be said for the Baron… After going missing in action last month, this month’s Baron is Rumpel-fied, but back at the vessel’s helm nonetheless. Climb aboard the flying vessel, little adventurers. There’s lotsa loot to plunder! ?


As usual, the Airship arrival signals the delivery of a free player-designed costume. To make up for the delay in this month’s Airship, the Baron has recreated TWO player-made costumes! Without further ado, the winners of August’s costume contest are…


September's free winning costumes: Candy Girl by Fast Leopard and Jester by Blue Bones


Candy Girl by Fast Leopard and Jester by Blue Bones! ??


All players can nab the two FREE costumes from the Airship’s Cabin of Curiosities for a limited time. Put your sweet tooth front and center – channel your inner-cotton candy queen with Candy Girl, before clownin’ around with the Jester’s blue and yellow clown ensemble, complete with a halfsie skull mask and matching mini jester accessory. Congratulations, Fast Leopard and Blue Bones! ?


As for the rest of the Halloween tricks and treats on board, all players can scoop up the dirt-cheap Halloween gear! It’s a steal. Redecorate your clubhouse with the Pumpkin Couch (10 credits), Trick or Treat Bag (10 credits), Pumpkin Chair (10 credits), Cat Clock (10 credits), and Haunted Painting (10 credits) for only 50 credits!


September Cabin of Curiosities Halloween items


After securing September’s special haul, don’t forget to chat up the Baron Rumpel! He’s well past keeping his scheme a secret. Now that his plans have escalated, Rumpel’s keen on bragging about the sky pirate’s disappearance and his revenge against the Red Queen – the Baron’s fabled mother…

Pop tip: Descend to the Baron’s quarters from the Cabin of Curiosities, where Rumpel’s eager to spill the beans to players that have braved The Baron’s Crusade mini quest! ?


Is it possible more Poptropica lore will be here sooner rather than later? Maybe so, little adventurers. ? Until then, hurry to the Baron’s Airship and claim your freebies and basically-free Halloween décor! Time’s-a-tickin’, Poptropicans! What do you think of this month’s Airship edition?

August's Cabin of Curiosities: 2 Free Costumes and Unsettling Inventory ?

Although the Airship has arrived Baron-less, the sky pirate’s Cabin of Curiosities is suspiciously well stocked and in order. Has Ack been holding down the fort? Whatever the case, there’s new discoveries to be made in the Airship’s popup shop! ?


First up: August’s free costume and the winner of last month’s costume contest. As always, choosing only one costume is a ridiculously tough decision. Thank you to everyone who participated in July’s contest round! August’s installment is set to begin tomorrow – keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming announcement and updated details. 


Now, without further ado, this month’s winning costume is… THE HAIR by Prickly Tooth! ??


The Hair Costume by Prickly ToothAugust's Free Costume Aboard the Airship


Add “The Hair” to your wardrobes (for FREE) to start customizing the ‘fit’s floral aura, silky tresses, white top, and brown bottoms. Massive props to Prickly Tooth for designing such a flowy, flowery costume! Well done!


August's Cabin of Curiosities


On the opposite end of the Cabin of Curiosities, all players can scoop up another free outfit – The Banana costume – complete with a banana peel, yellow shades, and sword. Like last month’s Cabin haul, August’s inventory highlights another character: The Baron! Despite the sky pirate’s absence, the Baron (and their trusty sidekick, Ack) are the main inspirations for the clubhouse collection.


Browse the Baron and Ack Painting (300 credits), Ack Plushie (200 credits), Ack’s Litter Box (5 credits), Wooden Mug (10 credits), Chest of Scrolls (100 credits)? Perhaps they seem familiar? Where have we seen these items before? ?


Remember, the Airship and its Cabin contents are only available for a limited time! Be sure to stop by the floating vessel ASAP to secure this month’s 2 free costumes and the Baron and Ack’s clubhouse collectables. Don’t let the captain’s absence fool you – the Airship waits for no one!


What are your first impressions of August’s Cabin of Curiosities haul? How weird is the Airship without the Baron?! Does anyone else feel the difference? Let us know! ?

Get Ready to Rumpel! The Baron's Reporting For Duty on Home Island! ?‍☠️


The Baron has landed on Home Island!


Buckle up, Poptropicans. This isn’t your average Baron visit, it’s certainly a sight to see! ?


Board the Airship and make your way into the Baron’s treasure trove, the Cabin of Curiosities. Before making a beeline for the free gear, there’s a good chance you’ll notice an unusual spin on this month’s Cabin collection – it’s almost impossible to ignore.


July's Cabin of Curiosities

Personally tailored by the Baron, July’s pop up shop inventory features a brass Rumpel Skull (50 credits), Rumpel Lamp (30 credits), Gold Rumpel Statue (100 credits), Unicorn Plushie (30 credits), Rumpel Plushie (100 credits), and a costume boasting an eccentric mashup of villains – Dr. Rumpel Bunskin (10 credits). The mysterious bundle totals 320 credits, not bad for a Rumpel redesign!


If you’re suspicious of the Baron’s sudden liking to Rumpelstiltskin, fear not! According to the sky pirate, they’re perfectly fine and “all of us little adventurers could learn a thing or two from him.” Hmm… the eye twitching "with the thrill of adventure" might say otherwise.

Nonetheless, the Baron’s Cabin of Curiosities wouldn’t be complete without its free player-designed costume! Presenting, the winner of June’s costume contest…

Stellar space outfit all around – the star eye patch and planetary tee are lovely additions to the winning lineup. Congratulations on your cosmic costume, Busy Bee! ??
