But again I think that's a different thread. If I see it though I'll comment on it!
ye i know. later i will try to think about it and create new thread.

Lets look at some recent launch skins.
Syndra: recolor.
Diana: thematic recolor
Varus: Recolor
There are a few costume changes, but mostly it's a recolor. What's not a recolor? MechaKha, Full metal Jayce.

Also, a witch skin would have a more ragged wardrobe (still different from spellthief), and also probably looser fitting (eg full body cloak). Or just make Void Lux.

As much as I would love a Marisa Lux skin like the thread is asking, I own sorceress and wish the art would be updated. Also, cudos to op for the obscure gundam reference.

The recolors, unless I"m wrong, have all been recolors of the classic skin, not recolors of another skin. While this may not seem like much to you, you know what you're buying when you get a skin.

From what rickless said a witch skin is still possible, but it would have to be significantly different than Sorceress Lux, and just making her skirt longer and covering her midriff doesn't do that. Void Lux sounds like it would be heading in the right direction, but is that what the OP is asking for?

Spellthief Lux is my favourite. To be honest, I don't really like the other Lux skins. I think she needs something a little more dark/gothic/witchcraft type skin.

A ghost champion who uses sweeping laser type attacks and lesser ghosts could be neat, actually. The closest thing to a ghost in the League is Nocturne.
