Head Judge


Teagan

Teagan fell in love with bootblacking at a young age, doing her shoes before church. Although these days her skills are being put to more salacious uses, she still identifies as a spiritual bootblack. For her, the act of bootblacking harkens back to the foot-washing ritual. She is honored to provide a humble service to her community.. She views herself as a healer, seeking to clean both the leather and it’s owner during their time in her stand.

Teagan was International Ms Bootblack 2018, and the 20th person to hold that title. She is also Southwest Bootblack 2017 and Southern California Bootblack 2016. She is based in Oakland, CA. During her title years she has invited our community to “Take Refuge” in the capable hands of our bootblacks. Teagan is an individual director for the Bay Area Leather Alliance Board. She’s the executive producer of the San Francisco Bootblack Contest.


Lady Umbra

Lady Umbra may be petite, yet is a fiercely sadistic Canadian Leatherwoman. She co-founded AWAKENS (A Women’s Association for Kinky Education & Networking Saskatoon) and is the founder of the Prairie Women’s Network which provides opportunities for women from Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba to connect with each other. Lady Umbra is Master to her slave, prairie locked and they are the International Power Exchange 2018 and Western Canada Power Exchange 2017 titleholders. Together they have travelled over 49, 000km (30,600miles) to share their enthusiasm for power exchange with other communities. She dances with passion when wielding her whip, and enjoys a wide variety of edgier play that combines impact, needles, knives, boots, cigars, and humiliation.


prairie locked

Lady Umbra's slave, prairie_locked, is a heteroflexible masochist who has been publicly active in the BDSM lifestyle for several years. He served on the board of directors of Kink Regina from July 2016 to September 2019, previously serving as house slave, and is a group leader of Saskatchewan Power Exchange. Lady Umbra and her slave are privileged to be the 2018 International Power Exchange and the 2017 Western Canada Power Exchange titleholders. Together they have travelled Canada and the US connecting communities, inspired people to explore their own power exchange relationships, and presented workshops on bootblacking, humiliation play, needles, mindfulness, and more.
