Attention to detail. Fabric choice, wig color, shoes, a quality costume itself, and, something a lot of people forget, the facial expressions and poses for the character. Props can help too, though different ones will catch different peoples' attention, so it's more personal choice. (An example would be that while I like seeing Yoko's that have her gun, I absolutely LOVE seeing cosplayers with the goggles/glasses that she wears.) Try to be unique with your props, though- it makes you stand out from the rest!
Although, in my opinion, the one important thing to me is /passion/. You have to absolutely LOVE a character to want to pull out all the stops and make it the absolute best, and you can't do that for a character you don't like all that much. Plus, if you really love the character, it'll show on your face while you wear it, and make the effort you put in all the better.
