Are Custom Skins Legal?

I found out about custom skins a few days ago, and I have 5 on my computer. I didn't download any of the official skins such as the Crimson Akali or the Redeemed Riven models, but I did download a few fan creations, like the AC Milan Akali Skin (which is a recoloring of the soccer themed Akali skin Riot discontinued).

If I'm not allowed to have these on my computer, I'd appreciate it if someone would tell me so I can uninstall them. I thought they would be an ok thing to have because the skins are fan creations, not official Riot skins which are sold in the store, but I'm not sure.

Oh, and if anyone at Riot is reading this, I would really appreciate it if you guys could consider making a Samurai Akali skin like the one featured on leaguecraft.com. Here's a picture:
(I would buy that faster than you can say Pulsefire Ezreal)

Yes. Custom skins are viewed by you, and not other players. As long as you are not given a physical advantage over other players it's legal. So are custom UIs, Timers, etc.

u realize nobody can tell whether you're using custom skins or not, right?

According to the EULA and ToU, they are against the rules.

With that said, Riot does not punish people in any way for using custom skins.

Custom skins are legal (As in: Not punished).

So if you want to play as a naked Sona with ten times the boob size, just go ahead :3
