I’ll be honest here:

No other champion makes me hate life as easily as Lulu.

So if you’re a Lulu main, know that it’s on sight.

But hypothetically, if you wanted to cause me the biggest amount of emotional damage by using an adorable cosmetic, which skin would give you the best bang for your buck?

Well let’s find out as we rank all of Lulu’s skins from OK-to-amazing.

Let the suffering begin.


9. Bittersweet Lulu

Released: March 20th, 2012
Price: 975 RP

There’s only one reason anyone should ever consider getting this skin: for the splash art.

Because man is that thing terrifying.

I’d honestly rather go hang out in a dark abandoned building with Fiddlesticks than spend more than two minutes with this crazy cupcake freak.

The actual skin & character model, though? That’s a lot more disappointing.

Her face looks derpy, her clothes look rather bland, and her wand could have been a bit more creative.

Her Polymorph looks pretty nice – but that’s about it.

Overall, I’d say only get this skin if you have really slow Internet and want the splash art to inflict as much psychological damage as possible while loading into the game.


8. Wicked Lulu

Released: March 20th, 2012
Price: 975 RP

I’ll always be a fan of evil timeline skins. So Wicked Lulu gets some brownie point right out of the gate.

However, I’m then quickly disappointed at how limited this skin is.

As far as the character model goes, it basically just swaps around some colors and dices her hat in half. And I don’t really get the hat thing, but I find it hilarious that a Riot designer sees it as the ultimate expression of evil.

Your Pix is also a bit more evil-looking, and your Polymorph gets a new effect here too.

Wicked Lulu is a good idea, and I can’t say it necessarily looks bad, but it definitely feels like the easy way out by doing the bare minimum.


7. Winter Wonder Lulu

Released: December 19th, 2013
Price: 1350 RP

If you want Lulu to look like an actual powerful mage and not a cartoon character, this is your final chance.

Winter Wonder Lulu goes for the classic ice mage fantasy, and pulls it off to a rather admirable degree.

You get more snow particles than you’ll know what to do with, present in basically every ability in every way. And your Pix is now a little flying Poro, which is always adorable.

However, you can definitely feel this skin’s age by now.

All of the particles look more or less the same. And there isn’t nearly as much polish as we get in later skins.

Also, you can only truly torment someone’s psyche by looking as needlessly cute as possible.


6. Dragon Trainer Lulu

Released: November 13th, 2012
Price: 1350 RP

Dragon Trainer Lulu did some things really well, and other things really badly.

To start: I really like the character model. Even though it came out like a decade ago, Lulu’s face and outfit look quite detailed in this skin. And she looks like a proper mage.

Ever her staff has some interesting design choices.

You do get a derpy little dragon dude that makes you look a bit more like a cartoon character, but he’s cute so it’s okay.

However, your animations are basically identical to Lulu’s base skin.

Usually that wouldn’t be a huge problem – but considering this skin is asking a premium price, well, that’ll cost it quite a bit in this ranking.


5. Pool Party Lulu

Released: June 25th, 2015
Price: 1350 RP

Now we’re getting into the skins that can really make your opponent break their monitor in half.

The biggest selling point with Pool Party Lulu is that hat.

Those dead googly eyes have appeared in more nightmares than Fiddlesticks could ever hope for. And they’re a bigger insult to the enemy than any emote.

Also, the fact that your Pix is a blowfish and all of your abilities are water-based gives even more insult to injury. You look like the most helpless creature ever conceived.

In all seriousness, this is a great Lulu skin if your goal is to just cause raw emotional damage to your foes.

If you also want to look your best while doing it, we have to keep going.


4. Space Groove Lulu

Released: April 1st, 2021
Price: 1350 RP

Although this skin can’t even stand in the same ring as Space Groove Nasus or Space Groove Blitzcrank, it is pretty nice overall.

The character model has a very funky unique futuristic design here, with a spoon-looking staff and half of a boiled egg for a Pix.

I know that all seems like a rather absurd description – but considering we’re talking about Lulu (Mrs. “that tastes purple”) it should make sense.

When it comes to the actual abilities, their visual design is nowhere near as impressive as their sound design.

You get some full-on grooves with this skin. And funkiness will always be appreciated!

I prefer the base skin to the Prestige Edition here, but I do have to say it’s rather good.


3. Star Guardian Lulu

Released: October 5th, 2016
Price: 1350 RP

The Star Guardian skin line rarely misses among the League of Legends fanbase.

If you want your champion to be completely repainted into Sailor Moon colors, we got you.

With Star Guardian Lulu you get the usual bright colors (green this time around), and your little sidekick, who just looks like a marshmallow. Plus you’ll find more particles than you would objectively ever need.

Your E has some stars on it, your W has the weirdest whiny little frog thing transformation, and your Q definitely runs on the power of friendship.

And speaking of running, your homeguard animation now has you flying about – so you can fit in with all of your other Star Guardian friends.

Overall, this skin is ridiculous – but you get exactly what you pay for.


2. Pajama Guardian Lulu

Released: November 21st, 2018
Price: 1350 RP

I’d argue that this skin line is peak capitalism.

Riot basically went “remember that skin you all loved? Well what if we came out with a new skin that’s basically a complete copy, but she’s wearing pajamas?”

And we all ate it right up.

The concept, the animations, the sound effects, they’re all the exact same as in Star Guardian Lulu. So you’re paying an extra 1350 RP just for that character model change.

It’s lazy, it’s predatory, and oh my god, is it effective!

I mean, I’m still putting this skin real close to the top of the ranking. So obviously just being adorable is enough for my wallet to fly open.


1. Cosmic Enchantress Lulu

Released: August 21st, 2018
Price: 1350 RP

Okay, I’m at least proud that the number one spot isn’t just a cute skin.

Don’t get me wrong, the fact that her Pix is a little Aurelion Sol is probably the cutest thing I have ever seen… but at least the champion model itself is more on the serious side.

Besides the Sol Lite, Cosmic Enchantress Lulu actually presents Lulu as a rather powerful sorceress. And she comes with lots of “universe and beyond” type particles surrounding her ult and basic abilities.

But if that wasn’t obvious enough, she also merges constellations in her backing animation.

The character model is serious enough to make Lulu look like an actual champion.

And the Pix + backing animation changes give this skin enough cuteness to satisfy the average Lulu player – and to mentally torment me.
