Random Things I've Learned in Korea

Friday, December 30, 2011

Hey Everyone!! It's New Years Eve morning here in Korea! I'm so excited since this is my first time actually doing something on New Years Eve AND my first time being out the country.
I wish you all a very great New Years. Here is my latest video about some of the random things I've learned, seen, or heard while living out here in Korea. Well at least for 2011, who knows what I'll run into for 2012!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!



Pink Fashion Ninja Design Contest

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

Hello Everyone!

The New Year is quickly approaching. I hope the year has brought you many wonderful things. I'm really excited to spend New Years in Seoul this year checking out all the wonderful festivals!

So with every new year comes resolutions and changes, and the Pink Fashion Ninja is due for one!

To start 2012 off right I am holding a contest looking for a great new logo for PFN.



The prize for the winner will include

  • A KPOP CD of your choice (I will mail it to you from Korea!) 
  • Your portfolio/blog link/information featured on the 'Chimon of the PFN' page
Now if you aren't a designer and have no portfolio link, no worries! I will have your name featured along with your blog, FB page ect showing that you designed the wonderful logo for the blog! Any and everyone can enter. 

The criteria:
  • Me having sole ownership of the logo
  • The design MUST be original (that you created)
  • A psd (or ai depending on which program you use) and a jpeg version of the design
When it comes to the logo, anything is a go. If you would like to create one from scratch or use a picture of mine, doesn't matter! You can also design the Pink Fashion Ninja font is you choose not to do a design.

My only request for the logo design
  • An all white background (it makes it much easier to manipulate and maneuver around)
A few ideas I've thought of
  • Ninja weapons like a 5 point star or a sword
  • A profile of a face
  • A really cool font for the words
  • Something that screams PINK FASHION NINJA!
Deadline Sunday January 8th, 2012!
Email me at aprilkamil88@gmail.com with your design(s). The subject should say "Design Contest."

If there is no winner or no entries then I'll just conjure up something myself!!

Have Fun

Kpop Style Spotlight: The G Style of G Dragon

Thursday, December 22, 2011

Everyone in the Kpop world knows how avant garde G Dragon of Big Bang is. His fashion has set trends and continuously keeps the awe factor. Now I have switched favorite members of Big Bang a lot, I'll admit. It was first T.O.P. then Taeyang, but now I feel like I can finally write my name in stone with G Dragon. He's extremely androgynous which I USUALLY HATE on male Kpop artists. The guy liner and tight pants does not amuse me nor does it make me more attracted to that person. I like them tall and hunky like Rain Bi!

BUT there is something about the way that Kwon JiYong does the whole androgenous, pink cheetah, guy liner, Edward Cullen pale skin, all white suit, blonde mushroom bob, aeygyo sweater, red skinny jeans, under 6'ft thing. IT WORKS. It's actually very sexy. It's mysterious like "Ooh What's he going to do next? Is his outfit going to be better than mine?"


きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ in Wonderland with Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

Thursday, December 15, 2011

Harajuku blogger and singer  きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ aka Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has hit us with another artistic video. In my first post about her video "PonPonPon" I stated it'd be great if her second video were much darker than her first, possibly a very Gothic Lolita Look i.e. Moi-même-Moitié. Well that definitely seems like the theme she was going for here. Naturally, in using the imagery of "Alice in Wonderland" the theme will be dark. The "Alice" story is very dark and magical.


You Are Cordially Invited: Night of FGI

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

I had the honor of attending a Fashion Group International event is Seoul last week. The Fashion Group International is a non-profit organization of fashion industry insiders. It’s designed to help members become more effective in their careers by providing insights on major trends and networking across the globe. 


Coffee Prince Fashion at Incheon

Monday, December 12, 2011

Gong Yoo was seen at Incheon International Airport last week sporting a chic casual look. Yoo was on his way to attend a fan meet entitled "Yoo and I". (How cute right?) He is best known for his role in the Kdrama "Coffee Prince" and the most recent "Dogani" (The Crucible). While watching "Dogani" (when I wasn't crying at the horrific parts!) I was gawking at his tall, slender, gorgeous self.

He went for a very sleek and comfy get up comprised of a grey scarf, a black mid thigh coat, dark jeans and dress shoes.

I really love that he wore dress shoes instead of tennis shoes because it allowed his outfit to be mature. He topped it off with a great fedora and incognito black wayfarers!

Please Enjoy!

Kpop Style Spotlight: Narsha

Narsha is a fierce fashionable woman. I first became captivated by her when she released her solo album titled "Narsha." The clothing theme for the album was a very Dark Gothic European look that I really admired. Even in her everyday fashion she usually goes for a monochromotic look.


2011 YG Family Concert (Fan Account)

Thursday, December 8, 2011

The YG Family Concert was an epic event. To see the biggest stars in Korea on one stage was an amazing experience. I've been following and loving the fashion and visual concepts that 2ne1 has come up with ever since their debut. I totally spazzed out when I was there to actually see them in the flesh. Of course Big Bang brought the fire and it was wonderful to see Daesang in good spirits. The 5 haven't performed together since the summer time when "Love Song" was hitting the airwaves. Tablo did a great job on stage and I am now a new fan of Psy who's live performances are out of this world! Gummy and Seven were nice and I really enjoyed hip hop duo Jinusean.


YG Family Thanks For the Love!

Tuesday, December 6, 2011

Omg Thank you YG Family! I was featured in a college of foreign fans on the official YG Family Facebook Page! Even though I had an infected eye, got my camera taken away, and ended up having to pay for two tickets, it was worth it! The 2011 YG Family Concert was the bomb!
