I've never really been fond of old haggard, but that's just me. Maybe it's viable. I'd steer more towards Maleficent as a good target. Middle-age-ish-sorta, dignified, graceful, evil, a force to be reckoned with.
What about Frau Totenkinker from Fables (granted she did reveal that her true from was a very attractive young women but she spends most of her time in the series as a frail old woman kicking all kinds of ass from her rocking chair)

I'll try to keep this as simple as possible. Cute chicks sell more than ugly ones, specially if the vast majority of your customers are male teenagers.

We have no cute ones.

On the flip side of that, my 2 favorite Cait skins really do fit into that (arctic warfare and resistance)

make a pig riding on the shoulders of a really short, squat, dwarfish woman

the pig gives the orders and wears an officer's cap

his attack is to make bacon fall from the sky and deal damage

I saw a fan made art/skin a while ago called Ivory Corsair Miss Fortune and it just blew my eyes wide open on the way I look at female champions. My main wonder here is, does anyone else also think it should have been her original skin? To me its a huge example of sexy vs ****ty...

On other champions like Sej, I really wish she was heavily armored. I was looking forward to a female champion that looked awesome in the way that mordekaiser looks. I know we got Kayle and Diana but they just don't have that look of having some badass armor thats going to wreck your face... (Darius and Mordekaiser LOOK intimidating... NO female in the league does). Thats my opinion anyways...
Would have personally preferred this and it is kinda cool. Also reminds me of the MMO "Sword of the New World" which had a pretty good take on character designs of this type making them "cool" but not overly sexual. Then again their art and music was just amazing and bad ass all around, at least when I played it during beta.
