Which version of Lelouch to choose?

So I've been thinking about cosplaying as Lelouch from Code Geass, but I don't know which version to go as, either from his School Uniform, as Zero, or in his Emperor of Britannia.. would anyone help me choose? Thank you!

I think the Zero outfit looks best.
The emperor outfit is a tad bit flashy and complex, but that's just my opinion.
As for the school uniform; a friend of mine went to a con in it and told me that she had a hard time getting recognized. I wasn't there, so I'm not exactly sure what the reason was, but she did wear a wig and contacts with it.

The school uniform looks nice, but this is one of those cases where having a partner would help you get recognized easier and stand out. If you can find someone to be C.C., go for it. If not, I'd say Zero.

First off-- YAY, more Code Geass love! <3

In terms of which outfit, though, I'd say your choice should mostly depend on what you're comfortable making.

The emperor outfit is a really neat costume, but is obviously very complicated in terms of detailing. Most people I've seen do it also had to do some resin-casting, which can prove to be a little complicated. The school uniform is definitely a much simpler construction option, and is probably a good choice for someone with less sewing experience-- but like Stotch said, that's definitely a cosplay that's better with a group. I personally love the Zero outfit, but there are particular elements about it that are difficult. The helmet could prove really tricky to do given the weirdness of the shape, and unfortunately, the official ones are pretty pricy. If you can figure out the helmet (or are willing to go without it), I think Zero would work well for you!

I love flashy, but I think the Zero outfit is just awesome. So my vote goes to Zero!
