I really wasn't too terribly concerned about Nami because, well, I think she's a cool design.

Did I notice the ruffles revealing some fish flesh? Yeah, I saw it months ago. Did I think it was particularly a good idea to poo-poo the design when it was on its way, when it was gathering momentum, and when it was being passionately worked on by the artist? Hell no. This will be this particular artist's first champion ever in the game. It's her show in that regard. I didn't find the cleavage to be a monumental red flag.

When I saw the concept I was like.. look at this stuff, isn't it neat? Wouldn't you think this concept's complete? Wouldn't you think she's the girl, the girl that has, everything? Look at those frills, how they unfold. How many wonders can one mermaid hold? Looking around here you think, sure, she's got everything. She's got flippers and scepters a plenty. She's got dashes and splashes galore. You want complementary curves? She's got twenty. But who cares, no big deal, she wants more.

She wants to be where the players are, she wants to see, wants to see them fighting, thinking inside of those, what do you call them? Oh, brains! Flipping to mid you don't get to far. Supports are required for healing, casting, strolling along on that.. what's that word again? Lane! Up where they toss, up where they stun, up where they lane all day in the sun, wandering free, wished she could be, part of that role.

What would she pay, if she could play, out of those waters? What sort of gift, would let her lift, up to the game? Betcha in the rift, they get the drift, that they appreciate their healers. Crowd controllers, supporting rollers, ready to sustain, and ready to help with Carry's job. Lock up the gankers and get some assists. What's a Baron, and how does it, what's the word? Buff! When's it enough? Wouldn't they love, love to play some support up above?

Out of the sea.

Wished she could be.

Part of that roll.

As much as I laughed at this post, I still have one thing to say. If you noticed it, why didn't you say something about that one part? You don't have to scrap the entire design(which BTW I love) because one part is bothersome. Lots of threads have been popping up recently about Riot over-sexualizing women via champions. Just saying, you can change one part of a design w/o getting rid of the whole thing.

..Also, did you come up with that on the spot or have you been planning that and now got the chance to post it? XD

I had pretty much the same reaction as the OP when I looked at her in game model

I was expecting to see an interesting looking mermaid themed water mage

but all I got were BOOBS

from the top-down angle we get, thats all her model looks like, when she's facing you it's like 80% cleaveage

unbelieveable

What are you talking about? Her boobs are fairly small.

If the only thing you look at on a character's design are BOOBS then that might be a problem on your end.

Honestly, I didn't even notice the increase in cleavage on her model until I zoomed in out of boredom.

i have a couple things to say in their defence. one, this champion was in the pipeline before they said they would address the problem, they cant just scrap her or try to rush another in progress champion instead of her and then wait until they make one with a new body type. second, shes a mermaid, isnt that what mermaids look like?
