Do skins hold any significance?
 
Or are they more for just fun and whatnot?

Like was Katarina ever a pirate crew member? Given her skillset it wouldn't seem unlikely.

Just wondering.

Well...if you think about how Mundo has a corporate skin and Cho'Gath has a Gentleman skin in their world, it seems more like something that Riot put in there for giggles. That or...the summoners are playing dress up with their champions...

Mundo could be the head of a chemical corporation in Zaun.

That's more likely to be Singed or Warwick, and Cho'Gath? >.>

Please do not tell me Cho'Gath sips tea and drinks coffee at a table by the fire place over at the Void -_-

You made me blush. That, or the alcohol has kicked in and given me rosy cheeks.

Having said that, skins are designed in three manners: pop culture awesomeness, interesting style variants, or lore-specific inspirations. These categories are not exclusive to one another. The universal goal is certainly for them to be fun, though some hold more weight than others when it comes to the lore.

New Goal: Try to use fanwank and shaky jumps of logic to explain how every single skin fits into the current established LoLore

Brutal Jax was his rebellious teenage years before he learned self-control. And got bored.

Mad hatter shaco is from the imagination of annie (as well as annie's wonderland skin)

Veigar Greybeard: He ran out of razors huhu

He'll get stuck when explaining teemo skins.
