How do you get into cosplay?

I'm a sucker for costuming and drooling over amazing cosplay pictures online. In October my local bike shop is having a "tweed ride" involving riding in period costumes, and I want to use this to give a try at cosplay (Victorian Mary Watson in her badass riding habit, for those who wonder). I don't have an inkling where to start. I can sew, but should I sew my whole costume? Alter some pieces of garment? Are there tacit rules for cosplaying? Is the devil really in the details?
