SeedyROM on SRK pointed out some PC skin modification screen shots for Street Fighter 4. Here's links to some of the better ones.

You can also find a few videos here. SeedyROM also included instructions on how to change your skins around.

1) Download whatever skin file you want (.emz file)

2) Find your SF4 Characters directory.
Retail version: "C:\Program Files\CAPCOM\STREETFIGHTERIV\Battle\Chara\"
Steam version: "C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\street fighter iv\Battle\Chara"

3) Go into the folder of the character you want to change. Remember they are Japanese names so Boxer is "BSN" (Bison).

4) Whatever the .emz file you download is called, make a backup of the old one first. For example, Chun Li's file is "CNL_01_05.col.emz" so rename that "CNL_01_05.col.old" and copy the new modified one from the zip file in there.

5) Load the game and pick the proper character/color to see the skin (more in notes on this). Enjoy!

-These changes do not appear to cause issues online. They are local only and the game doesn't appear to have checksums/checks in place. Still, CHANGE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
-The filename explains which color you need to choose to see it. For example: "CNL_01_05.col.emz" means Color #5 so you must unlock that color first.
-You don't appear to be able to change the color name. So you can't rename "CNL_01_05.col.emz" to "CNL_01_01.col.emz" and force it to use Color #1 because it will crash (has for me anyway).

You can find links to the current downloadable files on this thread.
