you'll need to do it in Page_PreInit event like:
*.ascx.cs   
    void Page_PreInit(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Calendar1.SkinID = "MySkin";
    } 

Open in new window

I have to admit i haven't been playing around with login control too much. But quickly looking at it, I managed to change control appearance by applying skinid dynamically. This is what I did:

1:converted the login control to template (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms178340.aspx) to see what control ids the controls in login control have. (you can also do this without converstion, but then you'll need to find another way around to find the controls you're intrested)
2:on Page_PreInit :
   this.Login1.FindControl("UserNameLabel").SkinID = "mySkin";
3: remember to have the theme set up correctly on your page
