Hmmm, looks pretty good. The only thing that comes to mind immediately is that I'd try to have all the red parts from the same (or similar) fabric. The shorts are really cool PVC, and in comparison the top and jacket look kind of flat.

Hey cool... I met you at AWA last year! Hope to see you there again this year (I'll be Ilpalazzo, FFX Clasko, and a coupla other things).
As for the costume, I really think you're the best Armitage I've seen. I remember the WOW factor last year, and nothing about your outfit jumped out at me, saying "change this!" I know that probably helps none at all, but I just wanted to say hi since I recognized you. ^_^

I agree with Sarcasm-hime. The jacket should be shiny like the shorts. Even though that would be really warm, it would make it look even better than it already is.
With most of the costumes where thigh highs have been necessary, I usually double layer them because I don't like the sheer look...
Great costume, though.
Costume's quite good over all. Just a few nit picky details
Naomi has studs on her knickles and along the top edge of her bra. These can be bought at many craft stores, or tandy leather shops.
Her collar is actually a buckle, not an O ring.
The gun is a bubblegummy pink color, rather than red.
Hair spray, teasing the roots, and flipping your head over should help you get that neat poofed out style she has.

Armitage is also one of my favorite characters. I only saw 2 pictures in your gallery and the one thing I noticed that was missing are the glasses.
Here is an example :
you can also see what others have said about matching the "shinyness" of the material.
Otherwise I say "Schwing!!"

I made this armitage costume as well, so I kinda remember some things I did on mine (I made the same version).
I got heat for my bra not being the same material as the rest (try making a pleather bra, not happening), so I know that much.
The bra also had red cups and black straps (I sewed red material onto a black bra for the effect).
The leggings/stockings also had red bands (two on each leg) at the top. There was also black stripes around the arms (hell to sew let me tell you).
Also, there were no zippers on the shorts, but large black strips (in odd shapes) on either side.
Oh yes, and her heart belt. Mine fell apart at the con, which was rather annoying.
