Locator[{x,y},obj] displays obj as the locator object.

you can use an graphics as a locator, but I don't think that you can
just change the appearance (except for the overall size) as you have asked.

   Graphics[{Line[{{{-1, 0}, {1, 0}}, {{0, -1}, {0, 1}}}]},
    ImageSize -> 15]]},
 Frame -> True, PlotRange -> 1
