Full Steam Ahead!
Steampunk is more than a "look" -- it's a growing subculture that may have started in the 1980s and the word itself may have been coined by the science fiction writer K.W. Jeter.  It usually revolves around sci-fi, fantasy, and the Victorian era after the advent of steam power, but with many present-day high-tech devices either modded to simply look Victorian-made or built entirely from scratch.       
If your seamstress and tailoring abilities fall short, there is a large number of talented seamstresses and some who also do tailoring right here on dA as well as many artists who make custom props and jewelry.  Most of them do work on commission, but you can also look for ready-to-wear garments and props at such places like, JCrew, and second-hand stores if you want to put together the look yourself.   Steampunk will probably be filtering into the mainstream more and more, so if Steampunk's your thing, then

one of the greatest fantasy artists of all time has passed away. the art world has not only lost a great, it has taken a step closer to mediocrity and banality. real, focused, obsessive, physical artists are disappearing, and less and less physical artists are replacing them. computers are doing wonderful things for the world, but they are doing more damage than good to art i think. i am sad tonight.
good bye sir, i will strive to learn from your work, and hope to become half the artist you were. i don't know if there's an afterlife, but if there is, i hope there's paint in it…

"I consider myself to be a creative artist...not just a fantasy illustrator. I work purely from my imagination. No swipes. No photographs. I stress good composition and design that borders on the abstract in spite of the subject matter."

- Frank Frazetta.

Wow.  I've never seen guitars like that before.  Not that I could ever afford to buy one, but I'm just curious if you sell those somewhere?  I'm not seeing any information about it on your pages.
