I like how Sejuani appears now, she fits in with the other Frejlord champs-- check out Tryndamere and Frejlord Ashe skin, none of them are wearing anything that would protect from the cold. They are just naturally resistant.

I do wish her Dark Rider skin had more armor though, and was more "dread knight" feel. I think that would satisfy both camps a bit more.

I'm much more interested in her skill fix that will hopefully give her some innate tankiness and weird kit usability issues regarding Permafrost.

People don't play her because she's not visually appealing.. They don't play her because she's awful compared to the other choices for her role.

Pigs are actually very clean animals.

She doesn't look like a mage at all, so there is already conflict with her visuals and her abilities. She honestly looks like an AD Bruiser to me.
That's exactly the image I was thinking of, thanks. For your second part, that's exactly my point. In gameplay she's a frost mage. In appearance she's basically the exact opposite. There's pretty much no way for Riot to reconcile those two things without a remake of Sejuani's abilities.

I would love it if Sejuani looked like that remake you linked, though.

We do need a heavily armored Sejuani, though. Dark rider Sejuani should have been closer to a dread knight skin rather than pretty much the same as she is normally, but the bikini is metal instead of leather and she's blue I guess.

Now, as for visual appearance and gameplay not remotely matching, I don't think there's anything that can be done about that. In gameplay she's a squishy frost mage. In appearance she's a flail-swinging, boar-riding barbarian. There's pretty much no hope of reconciling those two without a gameplay remake (which she probably needs anyway).
Gameplay is not the only way. What about a visual remake to reconcile? Her "barbarian" tribe has mystics who may not need to be buff barbarians.

Bumping just to get the awesome fanart on page 2 for how Sejuani should have looked some more recognition.

Yeah, I'm super fond of this piece. This is more of how I imagine her.

Also, I'll go on the record as being pro-boar.

How about a "Chilled Slice of Ham" skin, because that's about how useful she is as a champion?

Well then, any visual redesign should not disappoint.
