GO TO BOARDS


Don't ever expect a skin like "French Maid Nidalee" or "Battle Bunny Riven"

If all goes to plan, Diana's next skin will skirt the boarder between classy, sexy, and a little creepy.

And thats what people want.

But there needs to be some variety in the female champions that are going to come out, i mean, if all the next female champions are full clad in armor and look like they are dudes(like Quinn), it wouldnt be so good.

A good example of what people want is Ahri, shes a succubus, so shes sexy and its justified, ive read that some people actually think that shes a very cool character.

I personally expect some variety at least.

Please correct me if im wrong.


The previous female champs:

-Vi (looks good but is pretty clearly nonsexualized)
-Nami (mermaid)
-Elise (evil sexy; justified by being the Spider Queen and manipulative as all heck)
-Syndra (sexy, but oddly I find her main physical appeal to be how she almost seems to physically flow in terms of movement.)
-Diana (armor, moon paladin/"heretic" figure, contrast to sun paladin Leona)
-Zyra ("honeydew trap.&quot
-Lulu (Yordle)

The following female champ(s):
-Lissandra ("White Witch of Narnia, except looking a lot more naturally unsettling." Clearly female, just...well, chillingly terrifying.)
-Karma relaunch (actually GAINED a more sexually appealing outfit!)
-Sejuani relaunch (do I REALLY have to say why bikini on the tundra is stupid? She fits her "barbarian beast-rider" archetype far more effectively with actual armor on.)

Ahri is cool for numerous reasons, and so is MF (who is for all intents and purposes a gender-flipped, pirate version of Han Solo,) but we have many of those. Quinn is probably the LEAST obviously female female champ in the game right now. Her character archetype tends to be traditionally associated with androgynous characters, anyway.)

I certainly don't mind designs like Syndra.

The key distinction here is something can be sexy without being objectifying and without just being about secondary (or primary) sexual characteristics. I've talked to IronStylus (and to anyone else who doesn't make me shut up, I'm the worst) a bunch about this, and I think that's one of the more meaningful distinctions.


Don't you DARE shut up! Ever!

You have that.. ya know.. that science thing.. to back up all my crazy assertions!

Hey Ironstylus, which would you rather have first: Pirate Quinn, or Commando?

Or perhaps even Steel Legion, since you've worked a lot on that set.

Sexy Skins are like doors. If you put in too many curves, the frame just won't hold up.
