For nearly 2 years I've been fleshing out 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 - (WE HAVE 2000 THUMBS UP! We done it!)
Now to wait for Riot to make this happen.
This is Garen wearing nothing but a towel around his waist and a shower-cap on his head. His sword is replace with a large srubbing brush and he carries a yellow rubber ducky in the other hand which squicks randomly when casting spells. (Suggested by Laundromatic)
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 to cleanse the vile scourge. (As suggested by Kyrrion)
Garen's idle animations could be he scrubs his back and under his arms.
His splash art is him charging out from mid-shower. Holding scrubbing brush in one hand and the other hand wrapping a towel around his waist.
This skin shows that Garen is always ready to fight for justice, no matter what his situation.
One image is only a thumbnail because I dont have the original art works anymore. It was on my old computer, but the computer died about a year and a half ago and for some reason the links were removed by the forum.
As I said, the original thread where it was posted was over one and a half years ago.
Sorry for the inconvenience.*
(A note to Riot)
The people know what they like, and so far, this skin has had all positive responses. Feel free to make this skin whenever you like.
I'm envisioning Old Spice Garen.
"Look at your skin, now back to me, now back at your skin, now back to me. Sadly, it isn't me. But you could look like me if you spent 900 rp.
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."
- 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. (By PsychoBanana)
- Hello Ladies, look at your skin, now back at me, now back at your skin, now back ay me. Sadly it is not me.
- Fear not ladies, I'm coming
- "I'm back from the little soldier's room!" - By ColeSlawFromKFC
- "Spin to wi-..... OOPS!" (Towel almost falls off) - Posted by LightToasted`
- "You should never underestimate the importance of knowing where ones towel is." - Inspired by Zyquux
In game verbal:
- Hold on, my towel is slipping
- Next time call before you summon
- A moment earlier and we'd be rated M
- Watch the towel!!!
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. By Chamenas.
- 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. Inspired by Azzalin.
Mainly with Katarina. When Garen and Kat 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." Suggested by OuttaControl56

So... which one are you?
I think this is a GREAT idea! Just don't do one for Trundle...
Riot Responses of another Kind: These are responses direct from the Riot staff.Dont forget to +1 this thread if you like the idea. Lets see how many we can get.

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.
After a while I decided to see if they had had any progress on the subject.Quote:
(This was their response)
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.

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. Almost a year ago.
- During the creation of the skin, Unprepared Urgot was mentioned. That idea was immediately scrapped and never thought of again. (With good reason)
- +1000 thumbs up. Good job.
- Did you know that 70% of women enjoy this skin, 20% of men love this skin, and 15% of the other men are in denial about loving this. Where do you sit in these percentages?
