Say hello to one of the best fan skin creations we’ve ever seen—Grannie

We've heard of grown-up Annie, but this is even better.

League of Legends has its fair share of fan art out there. Whether players are creating cosplay, paintings, or whatever else, there are some truly incredible ones to sort through. Well, today, we saw a new one, and it instantly became one of our all-time favorites.

This is Grannie, otherwise known as grown-up Annie—really, really grown-up Annie. It’s genius. It’s poetic. We need it in the game right now.

The artist shared this beautiful creation on Twitter today, and there are several reasons why it made our list of favorites so quickly. For one, we’re big fans of wordplay, and you can’t get much better than Grannie. Sure, if this actually did become a skin at some point (hey, it happened to Dragon Master Swain, it can happen again), the naming might not work out when translated to other languages. But still, it’s hilarious.

Secondly, the artist ad-libbed words into her ability tooltips, and they just work so effortlessly. Here’s all four of them.

  • Q: “Grannie hurls a [HARD CARAMEL CANDY] at one enemy.”
  • W: “Grannie releases a cone of [BREADCRUMBS] in the target direction.”
  • E: “Grannie wraps herself and Tibbers in a [RING OF OLD TISSUES], reducing damage taken.”
  • R: “Tibbers wields a rolled up newspaper to chase you off his lawn.”

Honestly, we’re not sure if we like the idea of breadcrumb-wielding grandma Annie or an aged, cranky Tibbers the best, but combined, we love the idea even more.

Annie gets bonus points for being able to instantly toast the breadcrumbs, so she might be the more impressive of the two, but we’ll have to debate on it internally before we make that call.
