League of Legends Arcane skins

To celebrate the release of the League of Legends TV show Arcane, Riot have designed four skins for main characters Caitlyn, Jayce, Jinx, and Vi.

They’re all loosely based around their regular looks, but with a few tweaks to fit their designs in the story. For example, Caitlyn has lost her top hat, and wields a modified version of her iconic sniper rifle.
