Akemikun is a fantastic cosplayer that many got to learn about for the first time recently thanks to her incredible recreation of Street Fighter 6 A.K.I.’s Sinister Slide at TwitchCon Las Vegas 2023. With the help of a friend, Akemikun was dragged along the ground with a sheet while she imitated A.K.I.’s slide animation amazingly well at the event, and if you haven’t seen that yet, be sure to check it out.
Even more impressive, though, is that the cosplay of the character itself is also outstanding. Akemikun recently shared some new photos of her amazing A.K.I. cosplay and honestly, it’s flat out perfect.
The eerie newcomer to Street Fighter has a striking design that, though unorthodox, fans appear to really enjoy. A.K.I. has weird umbrella hair, slithers around on the floor like a snake, and contorts herself into strange and painful looking poses. She’s a weirdo, but she’s our weirdo.
I can’t imagine it’s easy to accurately capture the essence of such a strange character when it comes to cosplay, but Akemikun really does a fantastic job of becoming A.K.I. with this cosplay. From the outfit to the crazy hairdo, there isn’t a wacky hair out of place here.
The heavy detail put into the costume and specifically the claws is also tremendous here. This cosplayer really is the spitting image of A.K.I. and looks fantastic top to bottom.
A.K.I. is Street Fighter 6’s second DLC character. She is the apprentice of Street Fighter 5’s F.A.N.G, and similar to her master she utilizes poison in battle that deals damage to the opponent over time.
Akemikun has a slew of other fantastic cosplay in her repertoire. Check out her X (Twitter) page for other great depictions including Tekken’s Lili, Tifa Lockhart from the Final Fantasy 7 remake, gender swapped Nanami from Jujutsu Kaisen, and many more.
