Seriously? I would like a different theme for Lux too, magical girl or whatever. That'd be cool... but people have been using this argument of "it doesn't fit the character's theme!" so much to get rid of skins they don't like, that they're actually applying it to skins/champs that at least have some grounding on it... like skins were ever about fitting the character anyway.
No, seriously, it's nice that people are pressing for more variety, but try and be a bit more honest about the intention- you want the variety, not that it has anything to do with fitting the champion (a magical girl skin actually makes LESS sense there lore wise, I can admit that even if I want one more than Steel legion too).
The problem is she wasn't a soldier, she was a spy/infiltrator. In what universe does a spy/infiltrator use power armor meant for a Spartan from Halo?
So yes she was military, but we already have two skins to reflect that and the entire part about it not fitting Lux, at least from my perspective, is the idea that she is not some heavily armored front line soldier... she is a stealthy, sneaky infiltrator according to her lore. The other big thing, as someone who is really into fantasy, is that mages usually do not wear heavy armor as it impedes the casting of spells.
So actually I am being honest when I say it doesn't fit her as a skin. If it was sleeker and honestly (as an example) more like Night Blade Irelia it would make sense based on her lore. It isn't though, it is a hulking power suite.
Edit: Also it's not the military doesn't fit her, which a lot of people are claiming, it's that people don't want another military skin for her. There is a major disconnect between her Lore and how she feels when you play her in all reality, if you told someone who hadn't read the Lore that Lux was a bad ass military girl they would probably laugh in your face.
