I would love this.
Champion skins with multiple stages, where in the end you can end up paying a LOT for one skin, but it's insanely detailed and super awesome and rare because you upgraded it a lot.
For example, I would look at my favorite champion --> Shaco (surprise!)
Pick a skin, for example --> Mad Hatter Shaco.
If I spend the money and get the skin once, it's just the current Mad Hatter Shaco.
If I spent the amount again, the skin gets upgraded to Mad Hatter Shaco LV2, where now he might have a taller top-hat, different cooler and deeper colors, etc.
Maybe I can even upgrade again! Now Mad Hatter Shaco has a super awesome top-hat, has retractable knives that move on their own all the time, his clothing is now animated and moves based on physics, etc.
Upgrading the skin can even add more particles and what not, maybe more voiceovers/sounds. You should also be able to upgrade the classical skin as well, since some people like those the best.
Also, upgrading skins should improve on champion unique characteristics, for example --> Morgana's wings can grow each upgrade, same with Kayle; or Shockblade Zed's shurikens turn more and more into pure lightning as the skin upgrades, etc.
