Putting a stripper dance on Katarina might make 10,000 people happy (who would have continued to pay the game anyway), but it's not worth it if it makes 250 quit playing the game.

pleasing people < not pissing people off
Because your kin is overly vocal for being 200 people, annoying, don't care about what others thing, and label everything as oversexualized.

Well it could also be blonde too...


Look at Miss Fortune's Candy Cane skin. She's a redhead, but that skin made her brunette.

In regards to the hair, I think it clashes a little too much with the red...

Orange hair is fine...as long as it's a proper hue of orange, and not that particular florescent shade

LEAR TO PR.

First of all, right from the get go, the skin doesn't fit Kat. It's pretty much a carbon copy of the Christmas MF skin, which as one of the people who owns the MF skin, is kind of irritating.

Second of all, you say that sexuality isn't the main goal with this skin. However, this is only a loosely "Christmas themed" skin. What I mean by this is that that outfit is something my girlfriend would wear for me to have "fun" in. The fact that it's red and has white trim is only coincidental - she's wearing what most people would consider stripper clothes. As such, the stripper pole is TOTALLY appropriate for the skin.

NOW - maybe that's not appropriate for Kat as a character. I actually agree with you there. But if my girlfriend dressed for me in that outfit for Christmas and wasn't willing to dance on a red and white candy cane pole, I'd be quite surprised, which is why I'm surprised at you right now.

Again, maybe the whole skin doesn't really fit Kat - which is fine. If that's the case, make another Kat skin, clean up Christmas MF (particularly the splash art - augh), and give her the pole animation instead.

Otherwise, if you're planning on keeping the Kat skin as-is, to say the pole is out of character is very very bizarre.
I hate to quote / bump myself, but I feel like I made some good points that I (and others) are confused about and would like answered, if you could, Morello.
