Oni-Con is excited to announce our first Japanese fashion guest, AKIRA with DISACODE!
AKIRA debuted in an issue of KERA in the late 2000’s, quickly capturing the young female audience with her gothic masculine style. Since the start of her career, she has maintained status as one of the most popular and recognizable boystyle icons in Japan. She models full-time for KERA magazine, often for brands such as SEX POT ReVeNGe, Alice and the Pirates, and Atelier BoZ. In addition to a widely successful modeling profession, she also holds the position as frontwoman for her band DISACODE, with occasional acting roles as well, such as Kaname in the Vampire Knight Musical.
DISACODE is a three-member visual kei band, featuring AKIRA on vocals, Shinnosuke on bass, and Marcy on drums. Formed in 2007, the band’s musical sound features a range of rock styles, including a more traditional Japanese sound as well as visual kei. For DISACODE, fashion is a focal point; AKIRA designs and personally assembles each member’s outfit.
DISACODE will be performing at Oni-Con this year in concert, and AKIRA will be walking in the fashion show as well as attending this year’s tea party. We can’t wait to see what AKIRA and DISACODE bring to this stage this year!
