Shaped Forms

I am looking for a suite of shaped forms that i can use in my 2005 projects, the basic winform design is dated and boring.  Any one know of any good sites that offer alternatives to the basic winform.  I want to give my programs a new look.

There are lots of ways to do it in C#, it is just a matter of having an image and having the background of it set to transparent.  Then in the form set the necessary key for it.

Here is a really good site full of resources for shaping forms, making parts invisible etc.
