Hailing from Southeast Michigan, Disfusional Studios’ lead designer and fabricator, Ashlee Forde, 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 Forde, 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, Forde imparts wisdom on anyone who shows interest in her creations.
