A new website from the creators of the upcoming The Peanuts Movie (in theaters Nov. 6) allows fans to transform themselves into Charles Schulz-inspired characters and share the results on Facebook and Twitter.

“Charles Schulz always said there’s a little bit of him in all the characters he created,” Peanuts Movie director Steve Martino told USA Today. “Now we’ve built this website in a way that everyone can have the experience of finding themselves as a Peanuts character. This is so much fun.”

Site visitors can choose a Peanuts avatar and choose their hairstyle, skin color, eyes, nose, mouth, outfits and accessories. They can also pick a Peanuts scene to be placed in (from the school dance to the famed Peanuts ice skating pond).
