Since the original thread was shut down I bring you the NEW thread for the Unprepared Garen legendary skin.
So without further ado here it is. Please remember to vote and comment even if its to say no. All opinions are welcome!
*For nearly 5 years I've been developing and supporting this skin, but it still hasn't been made. Riot cant see whats right in front of them?
May we bring Sweet Soapy Demacian Justice!*
**Unprepared Garen - Legendary Skin**
* "This skin sees Garen wearing nothing but a towel around his waist and wielding scrubbing brush in his hand." *
His sword is replace with a large scrubbing brush (or loofah) and he carries a little yellow rubber ducky in the other hand which 'quacks' randomly when casting spells.
In-game when he spins with 'Judgment', soap-suds bubble up. When sprinting with 'Decisive Strike' he leaves a trail of bubbles while the speed bonus is active. His passive also makes bubbles come off him. When Garen hits a target with 'Demacian Justice' the big sword that falls is replaced with a sudden shower of water and soap to cleanse the vile scourge, leaving them glittering clean, albeit, dead.
Garen's idle animations sees him scrubbing his back and under his arms with his brush.
**This skin shows that Garen is always ready to fight for justice, no matter what his situation.**
The splash art (excuse the pun) is Garen charging out from mid-shower. Holding scrubbing brush in one hand and the other hand wrapping a towel around his waist.
This is the original sketched art by yours truly, **TheHobbits**.

> Look down, back up. Where are you? You're in Summoners Rift with the Skin your champ could look like.
> What's in your hand? Back at me. I have it. Its a Decisive Strike followed by a Judgement. The Enemy Champion is now dead.
> Anything is possible when your champ looks like me and not a lady. I'm in a bush.
> Do do doo do doo do doo doo."
**Garen in-game Quotes:**
- And I'm not even wearing armor!!!
- Hit the showers!!!
- And you thought I was Unprepared!!!
- Sorry you'll have to speak up, I'm wearing a towel.
- Hello Ladies, look at your mans skin, now back at me, now back at his skin, now back at me. Sadly it is not me.
- Fear not ladies, I'm coming.
- I'm back from the little soldier's room!
- Spin to wi-..... OOPS! (Towel almost falls off)
- You should never underestimate the importance of knowing where ones towel is.
- Forget getting caught with your pants down! I don't even have pants!
- (Whistles Old Spice Tune) The stench of the battlefield permeates the- *sniff* AUGH, By Jarvan's toesies, that's me!
Lather, rinse, repeat.
**Upon Hitting Level 18:**
Well, it appears I have "capped." (Pulls shower cap out and wears it.)
**In game verbal: Movement/Attack**
- Hold on, my towel is slipping.
- Next time call before you summon.
- A moment earlier and we'd be rated MA.
- Watch the towel!!!
- Dandruff is the first of many foes.
- Justice, by law or by loofah.
Garen pulls out a hair dryer and begins using it on his hair.
- Whenever Garen comes out of the bushes, (or is spotted when ones comes into the bushes), he should be grasping at his towel as if fixing it in place.
- When you use teleport home a shower curtain comes up around Garen. He then slings his towel over the rail as steam from the shower rises up.
- When Garen is killed, he slips on a bar of soap.
When Garen and Katarina are both within view, Katarina can 'wolf-whistle' at Garen as a joke.
Also when Kat kills Garen, she should say: * "Tall, Muscular, Exposed......the way I like it." *
When Garen and Lux are within view, Lux can use joke to say, * "Garen... Is that MY TOWEL?!" *
When Jarvan jokes near Garen, he could say: * "Garen, I told you to come prepared!" *

> Okay, this might be an obvious question, but if we have RIOT EMPLOYEES wanting this skin, why hasn't Riot made it a skin yet? Is it a legal issue? Because I think any one would sign anything to get their skin made. They could even make it a legendary and earn a ton of money on it. I'd pay for epic shower Garen. It might even make him popular again. Seriously, we need this skin. +(((1000^99)^10)^10) thumbs up for this by the way.

I might have to do this for my next cosplay.

I find this idea endearing, amusing and highly exploitable as future Taco Storm cosplay ;D

I feel these sentiments. Totally feel them. Totes.

It's ok. I love the gals. If you think about it, in terms of champions and skins I make, I play dress-up with the dolls I create =D
You're in a safe place.

We might have to make this skin if it gets enough fan support. As long as they don't give me the task to draw this!
**Riot Responses of another Kind: These are responses direct from the Riot staff.**
**(December 06, 2012)**
As you may, or may not, know by now of the Unprepared Garen skin that has been around the community forums for nearly a Year and a half has finally reached 2000 thumbs up by the community.
Now Im not out right saying "make this skin a reality", but the community knows what they like, and with near 900 responses of positive feedback, several of who are Riot staff themselves, it would be crazy NOT to make this.
So I finish by saying, let the dream come true. Make this Year & a half long dream come true for all the girl gamers and guy gamers too (Sometimes guys like sexy man champs too.)
Hope to hear from you soon.

> Hello Hobbits,
> Thanks for the suggestion. I'll forward this to the design team but I also recommend posting other ideas and suggestions like this on our champion concept forums.These forums are intended to showcase great ideas like this. Riot members are always checking the forums for inspiration on new character elements and you can get helpful feedback and support from your fellow summoners. **I'll be sure to submit this.**

After a while I decided to see if they had had any progress on the subject.
**(Jan 19 2013)**
"Hey there, Hobbits again.
I sent an idea here a while back for the Unprepared Garen fan skin and the response I got was great!
Now, excuse me for being curious, but is there any word I could get on the subject? Did the idea really get forwarded to the design team?
Any information would be greatly appreciated by myself and the community backing this concept.
I have checked your previous request and have seen that it has indeed been forwarded to the design team. Please know that because our teams receive so many feedback reports and skin concepts daily, we are unfortunately unable to respond to every entry individually. **This does not mean your suggestion has been overlooked.** We are sorry that we are not able to respond to every post.

**Points of interest:**
- This skin was first thought of and first posted on September 5th, 2011.
- During the creation of the skin, 'Unprepared Urgot' was mentioned. That idea was immediately scrapped and never thought of again. (With good reason)
- On the [Original Thread in the NA Art forum](http://forums.na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=2002829), this skin gained near 3000 thumbs up, plus over 130 pages of near perfect support.
- The thread before this one gained 586 yes votes.
> **TL:DR** for *BIitzcrank Bot*
> Garen wearing a towel and nothing else and has a scrubbing brush for a sword. Much sexy. Do want.
