Welcome to the home base, where you can find all my shenanigans across the internet. My name is Alex and I have come to your planet in order to spread the ideals of everything pinku.
"Pinku" is more than just the color pink. It's the feeling of looking up and seeing the beauty in everything. It's appreciating the the warmth of the sun on your skin, the feeling in your heart when you see a friend laugh, the emotion that washes over you and pushes reality away if even for a moment. That's what is precious to me.
The feeling that no matter what, you will be okay. It can be a little silly, but it's a feeling that I can't describe in any other way. And it is what I wish to embody through everything I create.
Thank you for visiting and please feel free to shoot me an email or tweet anytime! ♥
I have been doing dance covers on YouTube of Japanese Pop music for seven years. In that time, I joined a dance group called DtP who travel to anime & Japanese culture conventions across the East Coast of the United States to hold dance gatherings where people can come and have fun with the dances together, instead of just learning them alone in our bedrooms. I began cosplaying in this time as well. I started (& ended) attending college for Game Design. I lived in four radically different cities and two countries. I have started my own small business on Etsy called Pinku Planet, selling J-fashion inspired clothing and accessories. But this is only the beginning. I am creating original music along side my producer, Mondai Society, and we are working hard to share the feelings I want to share with all of you.
Currently, I live in the Phoenix area of Arizona and often travel for conventions. I want to spread my love of Japanese music and pop culture for all the world to see. Not just the music, the dances or fashion, but the idea that hard work and following your dreams are important. There is something special about Japanese idols and the aura that they produce. I hope to capture even a fraction of that for you.
Thank you for your continued support as we stumble through life together! I promise to do my best, if you do too.
