Capcom's venture to allow fans to design their own unique official costumes for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition is almost a wrap with the final winners being chosen just over a day from now.

Out of the 12 finalists, four of them have crossed 10,000 votes by the community though the two leading the pack currently are held by the same character, Juri — but it is very close.

Votes are tallied by combining the likes from the Street Fighter, Capcom UK and official Japanese Street Fighter Community Twitter accounts which has JnXC's fashionable Juri continuing to expand her lead at almost 20,000.

If rankings were calculated only on the main SF account, Sakura's festive attire with Mega Man references would be in second place right now, but Gar's punk Juri currently has that honor.

It's very close, however, considering there's just over 1,000 votes separating second and third with the winner of that race making it into SF5.

Only the top two finishers will be selected as the fan-created costumes to be re-created in the game.

Voting is scheduled to close on August 31 at 11:59 p.m. PT, so there's still time to cast your ballots. Plus, the triple Twitter accounts do technically make it so you could vote for the same costume up to three times.
