Well, I am not doing the whole thing again. I learned a lesson though. Do not type it here without saving it.
Now Blizz gets the boring, short version, the less creative version.
Final post on this:
Have a clothing/trans shop
1. You go in there and your hero appears like how he/she does in the party screen (but you can also rotate 360 degrees.
2. If you have played "Sims 3" you know how this works. You click on the item or area to edit and get a window/box come up with all of the possible choices.
I see my hero
I click on head
A box opens
I look through all of the artwork for a headpiece (this could include items bought with real money, or unlocked through quests/achievements...not just an icon for your banner!)
I pick the one I like and get to preview it.
Next i go to Head, Chest, Gloves, Pants, Boots, Weapons (whatever order i like).
I have finish my whole look so I click on the "finalize appearance" button, "are you sure" button "it costs..." (since i bought the limited edition expansion this is free)
All of the items are the same in abilities just trans morphed to the new art file.
The only tricky part is maybe the weapons but If the abilities are exactly the same, who cares. Weapon changes are very creative as long as all one handed weapons trans to on handed it should be fine but when i trans my mace to a dagger (which is fine i think) I will lose damage but gain attack speed. So maybe the weapons should be done through the Mystic and keep the clothing shop separate.
Sorry for not giving you the creative version. I am not creative this time, it was all lost. I will tell you this. It was about the clothing wagon "Queer Eye for the Adventuring Guy" no harm meant it is like the TV show.

In WoW it's called transmogrification, and the ability to visually customize your character adds a layer of depth to the game that a lot of players enjoy. We think it would be cool to implement something like that in Diablo III at some point, but a feature like this has some details to iron out first.
Just add a new NPC, call him the Armorer. He can make any item look like any other item.
Weapons should be included but can only be changed to look like another weapon of the same type (a high level axe can be made to look like a low level axe but not a 2H axe).
Legendary items should be customizable in this manner as well.
Since these would be strictly cosmetic changes, they shouldn't make items BoA. They are glorified dyes in a way, and dying an item doesn't make it BoA.

If something like this were done, would you also get the set bonuses? I agree with your idea, I think the Nat's Sight is butt ugly and I'd rather have a hood like the concept art. But if it doesn't acquire the set bonus then this feature would "alienate" a large portion of the items.
