Should I cosplay as pre-timeskip Luffy or post?

Hey guys, I just wanted an opinion from everyone about who should I cosplay as. I can't decide between pre-timeskip luffy or post timeskip. Which one is "cooler" and would be a better cosplay?

No doubt pre-timeskip is an easier cosplay to pull off than post.

I've cosplayed as both Pre/Post Time skip Luffy.
I had alot more fun going as post time skip luffy. That was largely due to the quality of the costumes though. When I tried going as pre Luffy, I tried my hand at sewing/making the shirt my self. Let's just say it came out pretty rough. For my post costume, I stepped things up and and had the shirt commissioned. Everything else was made by me. (Hat/Shorts/etc)

Just my 2 cents for you.

Post is cooler because I love seeing how people do scars. It's a little tougher if you're crossplaying (open front binding is a pain, I've heard), but for the extra effort, I think it's worth it.

Post-skip. I think he's much cooler and hence, more fun to cosplay as, as post-skip.
