7. The Gentleman Robot Sierra Vista artist and craftsman John E. Floyd is a creative cat with a serious yen for all things steampunk. You may have seen his retro-looking, copper-colored diving bell set up in a booth in one corner of Phoenix Comicon. Or you might have encountered the man himself, albeit completely disguised as The Gentleman Robot.
"I took some nods from The Iron Giant and 9," Floyd says of his costume, "But mostly I just wanted to do a steampunk robot that basically is trying to become more human, sorta like Data, but way more steampunk."
