Given the plethora of skins Riot releases each year, one might jokingly call League of Legends the "League of Skins". It makes sense, considering the game is largely free except for the cosmetic items upon which players can splurge. So, which new skins are making their debut in LoL this year?
League of Legends offers a vast array of customization options, and one of the most exciting aspects are skins. Whether you want to wield a fiery Infernal skin, channel the mystical energy of a Star Guardian, or don the armor of a fearsome Dragon Slayer, LoL has a skin to suit every taste and playstyle.
With a constant stream of new skins released regularly, players can constantly find fresh ways to express their individuality and stand out on the battlefield. So, gear up and discover the world of skins in League of Legends, where style meets gameplay in the most fantastic and visually stunning ways. Let's check out all the new skins we've got in 2023.

LoL Skins: Which League Champs are Confirmed for New Skins in 2023?
During the season 13 live stream Riot revealed that a bunch of champions that haven't gotten skins in a while will be receiving skins. Those champions include:
- Aurelion Sol - Inkshadow Skin in LoL Patch 13.9
- Kalista - Faerie Court Skin in LoL Patch 13.6
- Kled - Cats vs. Dogs Skin in LoL Patch 13.7
- Ivern - Astronaut Skin in LoL Patch 13.4
- Shyvana - Immortal Journey in LoL Patch 13.16
- Dr. Mundo - Street Demon in LoL Patch 13.18

"Mythic Variants" are special, exclusive cosmetic items in the game. These unique chromas – sorry I mean skins – take legendary skins and make them unique. The first one was Dark Cosmic Erasure Jhin, a special version of the existing Dark Cosmic Jhin skin.
Getting these Mythic Variants is tough. You have to buy capsules, and there's only a 1% chance of getting the skin in each capsule. If you want a guarantee, you'll need to buy 30 capsules, which would cost you $200. Yeaaah... dunno about that one.
