I'd like to hear some critiques on my cosplay or what I can do to improve it.

Some things to keep in mind:
A. I don't have any props yet and I was wondering what I should use. I'm thinking about using her umbrella, but if I attach the horns to it I wouldn't be able to close it and that's just not an option at this super-packed convention, so it would have to be a bit inaccurate. I'm also thinking about getting one of her ghosts as a plushie.
B. I still need to lose a bit of weight for this!
C. I'm going to cover up the tattoo on my left arm with makeup and use her stick-on pink bat tattoo, I just don't have that yet.
D. This is only the base wig, which is why it looks thin. I have four spiral ponytails to clip on, but I didn't do that here.
E. I forgot to put my watch on, oops!

Questions, comments, thoughts, suggestions? Please and thank you.

You look absolutely adorable as her! Once you add on the clips for the hair I think you would actually be pretty much perfect.
About the umbrella- a lot of the time props like that just turn out to be a hassle, I would say go with the plushie if you want a prop (at least you can cuddle with that) :)

Really, excellent work!

Anything I could say that is wrong, you already mentioned yourself =P

Looking good so far
It's really cute.

I do think you should cut the bangs on your wig seeing as her's are straight across.

Super cute!
I do agree with blunt cutting the bangs a bit more ( but I know that makes it hard to use the wig for anything else)

For the umbrella, you could make the horns flat and out of fabric with a little interfacing to help it stand up but still able to fold whenever.

The costume itself looks super nice and crisp! I'm really liking the way it looks on you, fit-wise. Everyone else has mentioned what I was going to say about the wig, but I wanted to post saying that I like where it's going! :3

I finished the wig! Here it is with the extensions in:

I made the bangs straight also.

And here is the watch:
