Which Version Of Rukia?

I only have f-m cosplays as of right now, for next year I want to have a female cosplay, and I just adore Bleach. Since I'm tiny and pale I think Rukia would be a great choice for me(not to mention I love her), except I can't decide what version of her to do. I was originally going to do schoolgirl Rukia but I'm not so sure now. I could do shinigami Rukia but I really don't know about the pure simplicity of her kimono, it isn't form fitting or girlish at all.

Then I thought about doing bankai Rukia, except that one is the exact opposite---quite complicated. Plus, in her other versions, her hair is black, so I could use the wig for Mikasa from Attack On Titan, but her bankai outfit has her with white hair and hair decorations.







I plan on making the whole thing, including getting an Arda wig and styling it from scratch and making her sword. I don't know to what con or anything so there's no deadline. What do you guys think? What would be the coolest version of her to cosplay? I can't decide!

Shinigami would probably be the most recognizable of the three.

I agree with Ilafatyu. I believe the Shinigami outfit is the most recognizable, and the school girl one is really only recognizable if the wig is perfectly styled (so many school uniforms, it's hard to keep track of them all unless they really stand out). I didn't get far enough into the series to recognize the last one- I had gotten up to Ichigo stopping Rukia being led to her execution.

As the previous two posts said I would go with Shimigami Rukia. Most of the Shimigami have something that really makes them stand out as far as hair, accessories, or hell even eyebrows go. But Rukia is a very 'normal' looking person. With so many characters wearing school uniforms nowadays they have a tendency to blur together unless someone is a very avid fan of the episodes where said character was in uniform. As for bankai I can't speak for the rest of the Bleach fanbase but i stopped reading after the '3 years later' break. I didn't even realize that she had accomplished Bankai.

In the end shimigami Rukia may seem very simple but it's a VERY iconic look to a popular character.
