Default Pidgin Skins for Windows

I personally prefer Pidgin over AIM or Trillian because it is much simpler and faster. However the default skin isn't the best. I was wondering if anyone knew of any skins I could download and how to install them. I was looking for maybe a black skin if possible. Also I don't want the skins to be too fancy, because as I said before I like Pidgin's simplicity. Thanks in advance.

(Offtopic): I tried Pidgin and was just disgusted with it. It looks horrible, sounds are bad (were there even any?), it doesn't tell me when I get an email, Trillian is a keeper for me.
