There's a pretty cool opportunity for folks with a passion for Photoshop or the image editor of your choice over at the official site for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix(thanks to Coming Soon for pointing this out). Potter fans can now design their own Death Eater masks. For those of you not up on all things Potter, Death Eaters are the bad guys. They serve Lord Voldemort (a.k.a. He Who Must Not Be Named, even though I just named him) the most evil and nose-less of dark wizards and Harry's arch nemesis. Death Eaters work in secret, not wanting their identities to be known to the wizarding community at large, so they hide behind masks.

To get started you need to download the art kit, which contains templates, borders, textures, and bits and pieces in .JPG, .PDF, and .PSD (native Photoshop) format. There are several very cool official designs to give you inspiration, which may or may not be the ones we'll actually see in the film, and you can take a look at masks other users have uploaded, choosing to view them by recent uploads, highest rated and most viewed. As of this writing some guy named Phil is responsible for most of the designs, and I think he's in need of some competition. You'll of course be asked to register with the site before uploading your masterpiece, and once that's done people can rate it, and you can download or link to your image from your own site. A little something to keep Potter fans busy until Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix opens on July 11.
