I am humbled to have the opportunity to work/collaborate with fellow talented Artists.
Just as much time and work goes into getting the perfect photograph/edit as does each costume.
Here are just a few galleries I have been fortunate to be apart of.
I am also open to working with new artists (cosplay or photography)! Feel free to contact me, if you are interested.
Disfusional Studios has been hired by various organizations, over the years.
Are you seeking the assistance of a professional artist? We are skilled in a variety of different mediums.

Hailing from Southeast Michigan, Disfusional Studios’ lead designer and fabricator, Ashlee Kalthoff, has been creating and showing her artwork since 2005. After receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Art and Design, Ashlee has applied her traditional artistic background to costume and prop design. At the 2012 Michigan Renaissance Festival her World of Warcraft based headpiece and cosplay garnered high praise from contest judges and was an obvious crowd favorite.
Since 2016, under the direction of Kalthoff, Disfusional Studios has won many cosplay ‘Best in Show’, and craftsmanship titles around the Great Lakes region. Her attention to detail and advanced sewing and fabrication techniques have allowed her creations to stand in the spotlight again and again. To further her commitment to the craft and culture she shares build guides, fabrication techniques, tutorials, and general advice and information to whomever asks. As a former educator, Kalthoff imparts wisdom on anyone who shows interest in her creations.
