XDA forum member gIMpSTa has created an online theming kitchen for creating custom skinned, signed, HTC_IME high and low res apk files. This gives you freedom to easily customise or create your own skins!
How it works: gIMpSTa has set up a website (requires registration) that you can visit on your computer or directly from your Android device that will let you:
HTC_IME custom skin generator is currently in beta as gIMpSTa is actively working on the tool, but all features should be working.
If you use this tool to generate your own custom keyboard and include it in a theme or morph or re-post your custom keyboard, please give due credit to gIMpSTa.

In a recent article that we published, we highlighted the MetroLock lock screen. A recently produced theme by zitoun, who has been working with Cendaryn, has come to light and does a great job matching the design of MetroLock and combining it into one simple and great looking theme. For those of you who found yourself loving the lock screen look, you’ll have to check out this new theme!

I’m working with Cendaryn to create a theme which will be nice with the icons “WMP7 Metro” from Cendaryn, Pray2Live & Got. The following theme is not the final release but a first try. Still working with Cendaryn to have news ideas.
Even in its non final release it still looks pretty sharp!

Give your Windows Mobile a fresh new look using the Windows Phone 7 Metro theme offered by mskip. This theme is designed for SPB Mobile Shell 3.5.3 and even works in landscape mode. A nice feature of this theme is that you can uninstall it and go back to your previous one.
Unfortunately this theme is only available for WVGA and VGA devices. However, there’s work undergoing for QVGA and WQVGA devices so hang tight.

Contains the following:
+ All new layout with invisible buttons at top of Home Hubs for Carousel (top left) and menu (top right).
+ Links on right side of Home Hub 1 to main functions (top button to sound profile, middle invisible button to connections profile and bottom invisible button to task manager) which can easily be changed if desired.
+ 2 Home Hubs (slide up and down to scroll between them) which you can populate with a selection of panels or make up your own.
+ Panels are mostly made up of shortcuts and custom shortcut skins so easy to change images or look (if desired).
+ New menu bars in mobile shell screens.
+ All Screens fully set up for LandScape mode.
+ Lots more that I cant think of right now. Find out for yourself
Update: mskip has been working very hard and has QVGA and WQVGA versions ready for download.
