Lucky Rebel - Head Judge

International Mr. Bootblack 2018, Lucky Rebel, is originally from San Diego, California. Growing up in a motorcycle family, he developed an interest in leather early. 

He currently lives in Portland, Oregon where he served as Mr. Oregon State Leather, 2016.  When he’s not actively working on dismantling white supremacy, tearing down the patriarchy, and smashing the status quo, you can find him hustling his handmade leather care products, “Rebel Rubs and Suds.” 

He is honored to be an Onyx Northwest Brother and uses his influence to promote the concept that “Representation Matters.”

Moxie is the Northwest Bootblack 2018, a Pansexual, Poly, Penguin Princess and overall Pain in the ass. She loves hard and works harder. She’s been

bootblacking since 2009 and has been honored to work the stands at Folsom Street Fair,  Sin in the City, Northwest Leather Celebration and Battle Born Leather Clubs Gear Nights. Moxie is active in her community as the producer of the Nevada Bootblack Contest, marketing director for Revelry, and is a member of her local leather clubs. Mox is a knife enthusiast, needle bottom, and what she wouldn't do for a good stomping scene. With a personality bigger than her smile, Mox shares her love of all things boots with anyone who will listen. Her favorite pair is her Hello Kitty boots with the pink leather bows, but she’s a sucker for a cute person wearing Wescos.
Master Bernie

Master Bernie began his journey into kink when he read a Drummer magazine in 1981. He liked what he saw and purchased a leather jacket and motorcycle boots the next day. His Leather journey began with that first step. He stepped into the old Sun Tavern and began convincing members of the Wasatch Leatherman’s Motorcycle Club to start on him as a bottom. 

 He has been a member of Utah Powerplay, Utah Power Exchange (UPEX) and The Path. He has taught classes to each of these organizations starting in 1996 and continues teaching to the current generation of kinsters. 

 He is a cadet from the first Journeyman III (Three) Academy in Salt Lake City, Utah. His journey carried him to Chicago, Illinois, where he became an associate member of the Chicago Hellfire Club, a gay male sex club. His kinky mission is to flog and single tail as many willing volunteers that will step up to the plate. 

 He likes electro stimulation, needles, paddling, whipping (flogging; light to heavy), interrogations, boys on dildos and fuck machines, metal bondage and restraint, collaring boys for use and abuse(temp or permanent), humiliation (when the boy's mind is strong), Tandem topping, whenever possible, mummification and single tails (light to bloody raw) and as always cock, ball and tit torture.

Crystal has loved the feel and smell of leather all her life. It wasn't until she went through Journey and Leather Quest in 2013-2014,  that she learned how to boot black and take care of Leather. She has been doing it ever chance she can get and loves to teach others. She has taught at Path a 101 class and Journey a 201 class.  She has a desire to learn more about how other people do stuff and what they use.
She has been the bootblack coordinator for Utah Leather Pride and Rocky Mountain Rebellion. She loves being the coordinator and it is hard to get her away from the stands for long.
