We recently got wind of Atherisch’s Instagram page. Aetheric seems to be a cosplayer from Chile. Remarkably, throughout her cosplay career, she has cosplayed a number of our favorite female fighting game characters.
Apparently, she was brave enough to even star as Cammy White from the Street Fighter series. It’s certainly worth noting that this version of Cammy is based on the character’s appearance in Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter 4, and Street Fighter 5 rather than her older appearance in Street Fighter 6.
Cammy White actually made her debut in Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers (released to arcades in 1993) alongside the likes of T. Hawk, Fei Long and Dee Jay. Of these four characters, Cammy returns the most, having become a fan favorite and staple of the Street Fighter series.
During the events of Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers, Cammy was described as a “19-year-old female special forces agent from England” who had ties to M. Bison. Based on this, Cammy is presumed to be 48 years old in Street Fighter 6.
Although the differences are actually quite subtle, Atheric has cosplayed as various portrayals of Cammy. In the footage where Aetheric has green camouflage paint on her legs, she technically portrays Cammy based on how she appeared in Street Fighter 2 and Street Fighter 4.
On the other hand, Cammy without the green camouflage is meant to represent Cammy from Street Fighter 5. A gun holster wrapped around Cammy’s leg can also be seen, which is also part of Cammy’s default Street Fighter 5 look.

It seems Atherian has also taken it upon herself to play as Mai Shiranui from the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series. Although Mai has become one of the most popular characters from the King of Fighters series, she actually made her first appearance in Fatal Fury 2 (released to arcades in 1992).
Unfortunately, Mai Shiranui is completely absent from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, despite the addition of Terry Bogard as a DLC character. Although many iconic characters are referenced from the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series, the developers were unable to include Mai Shiranui due to her attire.
“By the way, you may have noticed that a very important character from the Fatal Fury series was not included,” Masahiro Sakurai said on the matter. “Yes, Mai Shiranui. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is for good boys and girls of many different ages, so we’ve decided not to feature them. Please forgive us.”
Regardless, Atheric’s portrayal of Mai Shiranui can be seen below:
Mileena made her first appearance in Mortal Kombat 2 (released to arcades in 1993). She looks similar to Kitana, but that’s because she’s literally a clone of Kitana created by Shang Tsung in the Flesh Pits.
Instead of wielding fan blades like Kitana, Mileena opts for the sai blades instead. Mileena made quite an impression in her first appearance as Mileena is believed to be the absolute strongest fighter in Mortal Kombat 2 from a competitive standpoint.
It seems that even NetherRealm Studios underestimated Mileena’s popularity as there was a massive outcry from the community about her absence from Mortal Kombat 11. Fortunately, however, she was added as the final DLC characters in Mortal Kombat 11, along with Rain and Rambo.
Unfortunately, Mileena is often considered to be one of the worst fighters in Mortal Kombat 11, so she’s not often seen at tournament events.
