Thank you for writing.
The theme for the RadDropDownList items list is taken from the RadListControl theme. So in order to have a theme for the items list, you have to style the RadListControl in the VSB.
I hope this will help you. If you have further questions, feel free to ask.
All the best,
the Telerik team
