It might seem like a lot of work but its worth a shot.
Heres an example of one I made on a different forum once:
Name:
Hebi-Hitoshirezu (hidden serpent)
Command:
Reveal yourself, Hebi-Hitoshirezu!
Avatar:
The avatar that accompanies this soul slayer is easily described as a serpent. Much like Renji’s Baboon King Bankai, the avatar of Hebi-Hitoshirezu is a 30 ft. slim serpent. However, the serpent is manifested completely of a thick white cloud like mist. The only part of the serpent that is not mist is its eyes which shine a blood red color. The avatar drapes itself around the user’s shoulders and down the arm holding the zapakutou. It perches its head upon the wielders shoulder. Also, regarding the avatar’s appearance, the user’s level of reaitsu also determines what the avatar can become. The higher the reaitsu the denser the serpent becomes. For example, if a person’s reaitsu is rather low, then the serpent will be a misty cloud with no definite shape and weak glowing eyes. However, if the person holding the zapakutou has a high reaitsu, then the serpent’s appearance becomes definite, even to the point when it is an actual cloud white serpent instead of a mist that it normally appears as. Hebi-Hitoshirezu is a selfish avatar, who is not willing to lend her powers to a weak death god. She does not like to be in her misty form so she requires a person with a high level reaitsu to control her. Also, with out a relatively high level reaitsu, controlling her successfully can become fatal because of the way you use her in both Shikai and Bankai. But in the end, if the Death God who controls her meets up to her expectations then the power she lends that fighter can become extremely valuable asset. But the danger in using her is that a Death God can run the risk of being controlled by her instead of that person controlling her. She is a dangerous and powerful avatar and is not for the weak to wield.
Normal Form (sealed):
The sheath of Hebi-Hitoshirezu is made of a serpent skin like material that is able to keep her in her sealed form. The actual blade is extremely light and thin, yet very durable. On the blade guard there is a dragon which separates Hebi-Hitoshirezu from the blade. This is necessary because after multiple uses in Shikai, Hebi-Hitoshirezu begins to develop her own reaitsu and is capable of controlling the zapakutou which she is sealed within. The guard is made of solid gold and continues down to the hilt which is covered with an ivory, serpent skin patterned grip. At the bottom of the hilt rests a serpent's head also composed of the gold continuation of the hilt. There are two blood red gems in place of the serpent’s eyes and the mouth is open displaying the serpent’s violent fangs.
Shikai:
The wielder of the zapakutou switches the regular fighting style of other soul slayers and holds the sword with the blade facing down and the serpent’s head facing upward, in other words, flipping the blade. The weapons position is vital for successfully calling out Hebi-Hitoshirezu’s Shikai form.
After the command ‘Reveal yourself, Hebi-Hitoshirezu’ is recited, the eyes of the serpent glow and the serpent literally comes to life. Slowly it slides itself out of the hilt of the sword, but always stays connected to the hilt. It tightly coils itself around the arm holding the sword until it reaches the shoulder of the arm it has ensnared. It then pulls back and quickly bites into the shoulder. There is a brief second of pain but suddenly, the users eyes become blood red and have a faint glow and fangs grow from the top row of teeth. The glowing eyes provide extremely enhanced vision, which can see another’s reaitsu that surrounds them, even if they are trying to conceal it. The fangs that develop are unnecessary during Shikai but become vital during Bankai. Because the user has now become directly attached to Hebi-Hitoshirezu it becomes much easier to channel reaitsu into her, making her stronger while regulating the flow of spirit energy from the power she has transferred to you. This provides the user with a sudden burst of adrenaline and power and increases their will to fight. They essentially go through how Zakari feels when he engages an enemy. This is the main reason it is dangerous to use Hebi-Hitoshirezu if one has a weak reaitsu. If so, she will demand more power and forcefully feed of the reaitsu. If the reaitsu is not strong enough to restrain her than the wielder will become much too weak to fight with her.
Abilities in Shikai:
Rirakkusu (meaning relax): This is Hebi-Hitoshirezu main ability in her Shikai form. When Rirakkusu is called out, the flow of reaitsu to the blade increases and the blade grows approximately 4 ft., all depending on the user’s reaitsu. The blade maintains its width and height and begins to let off a faint mist from the guard of the zapakutou. In this form, the blade acts like a serpent’s tail. When attacking it can bend whip and change length in seconds. Its speed is uncanny and is controlled mentally by the user, considering that they have not been overtaken by the avatar. There are unlimited possibilities of ways to use this form of Shikai. Techniques have been originated and used often by the person who currently wields Hebi-Hitoshirezu.
One is called Sanketsu (suffocation). This technique is targeting the enemy’s weapon as opposed to the enemy. The user wraps the relaxed blade around the enemy's weapon and applies mass amounts of pressure and spirit energy until the opponent’s weapon breaks. This is a difficult attack to master because of the necessary accuracy and limitations of the flexibility of the blade.
Hageshii-Kei (violent whip) is another attack. This includes holding the hilt still and having the blade whip around frantically. It creates a constant rushing attack, which has no definite target but cuts in the direction of the opponent. Even the Death God controlling the relaxed blade cannot determine where the next attack will land. This saves stamina, but drains reaitsu and is not very accurate.
Jinsoku-Kiba (rapid fang) is what has come to be known as one of the most relentless attacks that zapakutous are capable of. In this attack the blade repeatedly lunges out at the enemy and recoils. This is slightly slower than Hageshii-Kei but it is amazingly accurate and it still maintains an impressive and unmatched speed. This is effective in the sense that it does not give the opponent an opportunity to react and counter attack, the only option is using flash step to get out of range and avoid the furious and quick snaps of the blade. There are very few defensive moves that accompany the use of Shikai except one that can prove to be one of the most helpful defensive tactics this zapakutou has to offer. Nen'iri-Nami (careful wave) is the name given to the defensive tactic often used with this zapakutou. The blade is tilted forward in order to face the enemy’s attack. The relaxed blade then quickly swipes back and fourth ten times in succession. These ten crosses and extremely quick and when an opposing weapon makes contact with one swipe, the force is enough to completely divert the attack or send the weapon out of the enemy’s hand and into an undetermined direction.
The purpose of Hebi-Hitoshirezu’s Shikai is to provide a quick decisive victory, however, it the battle is prolonged, the constant strain on the users reaitsu makes one’s soul very tired over some time and it becomes difficult to execute attacks as efficiently as when Shikai was first called out.
Bankai:
Kiri-Ooi (Mist Shroud):
Upon calling Bankai, the blade completely disappears. And suddenly a thick white mist begins to pour out of the hilt. This technique literally drags clouds down from the sky and brings them to ground level creating a massive shroud of mist that can reach to areas higher than 100 yards in diameter. Within the low lying cloud a white serpent, resembling Hebi-Hitoshirezu, manifests from the zapakutou’s blade guard. Because at Bankai the Death God using the sword would have such a high reaitsu, it is able to develop in the serpent in a solid form as opposed to a condensed mist. Yet, to one’s enemy, all that can be seen of her are the serpent-like blade is two glowing eyes. Within the mist enemies attacks are slowed down greatly and ones body weight seems to increase. Various aspects of the mist can be controlled that effect enemies movement by the Death God wielding Hebi-Hitoshirezu. For example, the temperature, air pressure, or even wind speeds. However, because the one who is wielding Hebi-Hitoshirezu controls the mist, they are completely unaffected by any aspect of it. Also, the enhanced vision that Hebi-Hitoshirezu provides while in Bankai becomes vital (the glowing red eyes obtained while in Shikai give the user enhanced vision). While in the mist, one becomes able to see clearly, as if noting is impairing one’s vision. There is a disadvantage to this ability though. Because at this point the Death God’s eyes would be glowing bright red along with the serpent-blade’s, it is noticeable through the mist. In Bankai, the blade, which is now in the form of a serpent, reaches a length of approximately ten feet. The skin of the serpent becomes a solid impenetrable metal, an unknown material that forms from the wielder’s reaitsu. During this, all attacks that can be used in Shikai can be used, but even more efficiently and effectively. One other aspect that can prove helpful while using this attack is that the mist can also be used to increase the speed of the person controlling it. Through wind speeds and low air pressure movements such as shumpo and strict blade swings. This change in the mist can easily be restricted to a small area surrounding the Death God who is in control, but once in close range of their opponent, it is possible that they will be able to move easier as well.
Hebi-Hitonomi (Serpent Bite):
This technique is one that is not available in Shikai. When in Bankai, the snake from the hit of the zapakutou that had bitten you in Shikai is still attached to the Death God’s shoulder. However, the thin snake that was coiled around the Death God’s arm is now completely covering the arm in the same material that the serpent blade has manifested as, creating an armor plating that reaches above the wielder’s shoulder so their arm cannot be cut or severed. The serpent’s head that has bitten into the Death God’s shoulder has the ability to transfer and regulate reaitsu, and like this, the serpent that has taken the place of Hebi-Hitoshirezu’s blade also has this ability. But instead, the serpent would bite into the Death God’s opponent draining their reaitsu and transferring it to the person controlling Hebi-Hitoshirezu. This attack can not last more than a short five seconds, even so, if enough reaitsu is used in executing the attack, it can have a devastating outcome. Also, during the reaitsu transfer/drain, the opponent becomes slightly immobilized. This might seem somewhat unfair but mobility is regained the instant the serpent is released. The unfortunate side to the attack is that shortly after the attack, for about five seconds, the Death God controlling Hebi-Hitoshirezu become immobilized as well, but because of the mist shroud, it is extremely difficult to attack them. This attack is limited to three uses before the serpent blade recoils and becomes stiff, taking the form of a white staff originating at the guard of the zapakutou. While the zapakutou is resting, it can still be used as a weapon but it will act as a blunt sword until the serpent blade recuperates. The rest period can range from fifteen to thirty seconds, depending on the amount of reaitsu drained or transferred.
Souzen- Ejiki, Metsuki Chi (Confused Prey, Eyes of Blood):
This technique is extremely difficult to master. It requires the manipulation of either the opponents or the Death God’s blood within the mist. Blood can be drawn from the Death Gods shoulder that the serpent is attached to. Because the Death God’s location within the mist is given away by the serpent blade and the death God’s glowing red eyes, it necessary to confuse an opponent in order to achieve a swift and flawless victory. The blood that the Death God manipulates rises from the ground through a change in air pressure, wind direction, and speed. The mist through specifications can make the blood levitate. Then, by concentrating one’s reaitsu, the blood begins to glow, the same shade and size as the Death God’s eyes. At this point, depending on the amount of blood within the mist there can either be only one set of fake eyes or one hundred. This enables the Death God to move easily behind the enemy. Once behind the enemy, the serpent blade is used to ensnare the opponent, restricting movement of the upper torso and arms. Then, like the serpent from the hilt of the zapakutou, the Death God, who still has fangs from when there was an original reaitsu transfer during Shikai, bites into the shoulder of their opponent. It is a quick bite lasting no more than a second. Prior to the bite, the Death God must build up his reaitsu as quickly and as high as possible, but while not loosing control of the mist and blood. Because the blood is being controlled by the Death God’s reaitsu, the blood carries its own spirit energy, although weak, it is still able to distract an enemy. Just as the Death God bites down on their opponent’s shoulder, a sudden reaitsu transfer takes place. This sudden transfer drains an extreme amount of spirit energy from the Death God using the attack, but in doing so, it throws the one bitten past their limits, removing them of their powers and knocking them unconscious or in some cases, killing them. This effect can last for a mater of days or the victim can never end up retrieving their powers. It all depends on the amount of reaitsu transferred.

WOW! thats a lot to read! U get the idea tho...so use ur imagination and make one up...it doesnt have to be THAT long

(eventually i'll make a battle thread where we can see who created the strongest zanpakuto)

AND NO GOD MODDING! YOU CAN HAVE STRENGTHS BUT THERES GOTTA BE SOME WEAKNESSES TOO =]

It would be helpful if you edit your first post a bit more, it is quite long and a few spaces would be good.
I'll clean the thread a little by deleting unnecessary posts ok?
