MR. MICHIGAN LEATHER 2019 JUDGES
DADDY SKY COTTON – AMERICAN LEATHER WOMAN 2018
Daddy Sky has previously served as Great Lakes Ms. Leather Pride 2017 and Ms. Illinois Leather Pride 2017. She’s a Chicago based Leather Dyke, whose personal lust for Kink, Fetish, and Leather Lifestyle spans more than 28 years.
In 2005, dissatisfied with extremely limited play and BDSM Arts education options geared specifically towards Women, Gender Non Conforming persons, Enby persons, and Transfolk, Sky created Vespertine Chicago. She has dedicated herself to a core mission of fostering Kink and Fetish in everyone she meets and of stewarding the next generation of healthy, Sex Positive People, by creating a safe space in which Queer Women are centered and may play, learn and grow. A portion of each event’s proceeds are donated to local charities.
Her professional life in Kink and Leather found her serving members of The Community for ten years by helping them navigate their path while working at Mephisto Leathers, and Leather 64Ten. Daddy Sky then spent 4 years working in Personal Pleasure and Sex Education at Tulip Toy Gallery. She is very proud to be back at Leather 64Ten serving the Leather and Kink Communities directly.
Daddy Sky is a Supporting Member of the Leather Archives and Museum, and also volunteers at International Mr. Leather Weekend. She has been a Judge, Tally Monster, Den Daddy, and Event Host. The Sky truly is the limit with this Daddy.
KELVIN DAVIS – MR. OHIO LEATHER 2015
Kelvin Davis has been in the scene for a long time you might say as he grew up around leather and kink. Being the son of a policeman, he fondly remembers sitting on the laps of the officers when he was a kid; the uniforms, creak and smell of leather, handcuffs and jail cells, all were a part of his childhood. As for other kink, first aware of the affinity for bondage came from watching Wild Wild West (no, not the movie, the TV series). His career of being a fireman, paramedic, HAZMAT specialist and instructor just added fuel to the fire.
Kelvin’s title journey consists of being 2015 Mr. Ohio Leather & IML Class of 38. His former titles are Mr. Ripcord Leather, and Mr. Gulf Coast Bear. He has been on judging panels for Detroit Leather Bear, Mr. Argos Leather, and Northwest DNA.

JASON RANSCHAU – MR. IOWA LEATHER 2019
Jason’s first foray into the leather community began four years ago with IML. Since then he has grown into the leather community by attending new events, networking with amazing leather people, and learning about the wide variety of the fetish life. His time as Mister Iowa Leather 2019 has been enlightening and a great opportunity to continue to grow personally and help others that like him hadn’t been involved in the community.

His job has allowed him to travel to places around the world to make a positive impact on the lives of people in need. He tries to live his life by his motto: Learn, Grow, Smile.
