Interesting custom login screens

I want a different login screen for my KDE Plasma / Debian Buster machine. I'm not entirely certain what I want, other than something interesting (but still functional).

In the past I've used LightDM's "Crowd" greeter, which was a 3D avatar walking around the screen - a fun idea, but more gimmicky than functional.

Anyway, the KDE Store is absolutely terrible, and seems to be filled with minor variations of the same two basic themes, or there's a bit more variation but using the same crap webapp here.

Does anyone know of a better website for browsing login themes/greeters? Preferably one that emphasizes unusual ones over reskins, but at the very least using more than 7% of the screen for the images!

Alternatively, if anyone has a custom/unusual login screen that they think is worth sharing, please go ahead...

Just like to point out, prepending the word Linux to your thread title as a web-search gives "About 61,900,000 results (0.49 seconds)?"
Definitely not the best search example nor the fact that:
Debian has access to online repositories that contain over 51,000 packages. Debian officially contains only free software, but non-free software can be downloaded and installed from the Debian repositories.
some of which can create any possibility your looking for?

Guess what I searched to find: or &c...

Sorry for the random thoughts.

Have fun!

I'm a less is more kind of guy. My xdm has looked like this for a few years now. It's not hard to tweak to one's liking.
