John Strangeway

Steampunk Boba Fett (John F. Strangeway) is one of the most recognized figures in both the Steampunk and Star Wars fan communities. The idea originated in John’s lifelong love ofStar Wars and in particular the cult figure of bounty hunter Boba Fett.  He had the idea for a Steampunk variation for quite some time but lacked the resources to build the suit to match his vision. That changed at AnachroCon 2009, where he met Matt Silva of Penny Dreadful Productions. A few months later the two began work on the suit, which debuted at Dragon*Con 2009 to overwhelming acclaim.  John and Matt are featured prominently in the PBS documentary “Four Days at Dragon*Con.”
