What does she do: Tracy Robertson, better known by the goth moniker Batty, is Houston's long-running queen of goth and Victorian fashion through her company Azreal's Accomplice . She has run a successful design house in Houston since 1998, is successful enough to have no day job, and has had fashion shows across the nation. Her work has been featured on the cover of Gothic Beauty magazine, and her gowns have placed every year in Houston's Miss Spooky Pageant, winning twice.
