It is time to introduce our cosplay judges!

Please welcome Maddy Blonde (

Hello everyone! I’m Maddy Blonde and am cosplayer from Latvia. I’ve been coslaying for around 15 years.
Cosplay is a big part of my life. Even though I am busy in my everyday life and don’t have much time to be super active in cosplay community, I will always have time to make something.
I like to create costumes with interesting textiles and materials. But most importantly I am drawn to character backstories.
This will be my first time being a judge and I can’t wait to meet everyone and see up close the amazing costumes and performances.
Good luck to everyone and wish you all the best!

Our second cosplay judge is Crazy Queen (

Hi wonderful cosplayers and dear guests!

I am Crazy Queen! I returned to my art hobby 7 years ago. Cosplay world to me is absolute freedom to all art forms. Here intertwine fabrics, eva foam, iron, electronics, paint, glue – everything you can glue, sew, tie, hang, twist, and hammer together, just to make result maximum close to original idea!

I especially value costumes, no matter is it first or 66th, which are made with care, neatly and using most unexpected objects and things from surroundings.

And it doesn’t matter where I am – whether among the participants in the show or in the judge’s chair, my heart is with everyone who steps on the stage and I am always deeply moved by the performances.

I really look forward to all the participants in Jaff/J-Zone 2023

And our third cosplay judge – Ker Satomi!

Hello! My name is Ker Satomi, and I am a bit of a dinosaur in the world of cosplay. I was present at the birth of this movement in Riga, at the early Animefests. I am a participant and winner of various festivals related not only to cosplay, but also to historical costumes. I am also a freestyle Venetian mask and fashion model. I am not a professional seamstress, but at the same time I like to sew by hand. I like to create original costumes and characters. In cosplay, I like accuracy and extraordinary solutions in the manufacture of costumes. I am always ready to help with advice and suggest something that I can do myself.
