About TIU

Established in September of 2021, the Tri-State Idol Union is a networking and resource community dedicated to advancing and connecting idol-inspired performers who are based in the North Eastern United States.We are an inclusive, judgment-free environment and are open to performers of all skill levels. People from outside the North East can join as supporters and find events within the area.

Why is it called "Tri-State" idol union if you serve the whole North East?

Back when the Tri-State Idol Union started in 2021, our community was focused on idols from New York New Jersey and Pennsylvania (a region commonly reffered to in the north east as the "Tri-State Area").While we've since expanded in early 2022 to serve the Tri-State, New England, and DMV areas, we've held onto the name to remember our beginnings!

Alex Pinku


Hello! I'm Alex Pinku~ You can call me Alex. I'm a performance idol, artist & dancer currently living in Maryland and often travel for conventions and live shows. I've been in the odottemita community for over ten years and an active solo idol since 2018.Now three original releases deep, my main influences in music and performance are Japanese acts like Perfume, 2010’s era AKB48, Morning Musume, and a wide range of currently active Japanese idols. As well as the music they grew up listening to like My Chemical Romance and Lights. I aim to spread not just music, dances, or fashion, but the idea that hard work and spending your time doing what you love is important, regardless of skill level. There is something special about Japanese idols and the aura that they produce. I hope to capture even a fraction of that for you in my own performances and content across the internet, and in my work with TIU!



Hi everyone! My name is ADEN! I'm an original idol and producer heavily inspired by VOCALOID, J-Pop, and EDM! Since my debut in 2020, I have performed at various cons across America as well as perform regularly in Japan!My goal as a TIU Admin is to use the skills I've learned while idol-ing in Japan to help better the idol community on the east coast! (and maybe even the rest of the US! Who knows!!!)



Hop, Step, Sunshine! ♡
Hello everyone, my name's Jyuu! While I consider myself a newly debut Kaigai Idol, ive been a Net Idol since 2019- and a wota for a little over 10 years! I primarily perform across Massachusetts and New Hampshire, but I also participate in online showcases! As an idol, it's my goal to bring everlasting sunshine and eternal happiness wherever I go!
Outside of Idols, I also really love rhythm games, system modding, and dark girly kei!While I love solo projects, I also perform alongside my group Stella Lumina, as well as in UVS48! I gain a lot of inspiration from shows like Waccha Primaji and Pripara, so getting to perform with my friends means a lot to me! I'm super excited to share my love for idols, as well as my love for wota, with everyone here! Getting to help run such a big resource is a huge honor- so please treat me well!
