Baroness Ditzy von Karbon
Steampunk has become a Thames tourist attraction, spearheaded by Baroness Ditzy von Karbon and Lady Lavinia Laudanum-Swoon.
Their steampunk costumes and accessories have helped make the annual Steampunk The Thames festival is a big hit with locals and visitors.
The Baroness is also known as Gin Clay and in her studio in Kopu she recycles pretty much anything interesting she can get her hands on. Her specialties are hats, guns and accessories.
