Missing Comic-Con? Bummed you missed out on comic-con? Praise whatever higher power you believe in for video recorders and Internet connections. The weekend might be over, but fans are still getting some surprises.
A few hours ago Oscar winning actress Lupita Nyong’o tweeted this.

She’s not the first and she certainly won’t be the last celebrity to traverse the convention floor incognito. Brian Cranston did it. Daniel Radcliff did it. Heck, even Peter Jackson did it! Every year some celebrity or another brave the crowds at San Diego Comic-Con in disguise.
A mask is a typical camouflage, a quick and dirty way to avoid a riot amongst a sea of fanboys and girls. Radcliff dressed up as spider man, Jackson wore a Vader helmet. And four years ago, Brian Cranston wore a mask of his own face to move through the masses undetected.
No shade to the men who came before, but Lupita has blown them all out of the water. Dressed to the nines in full Pink Power Ranger regalia, the Oscar winning actress danced her way through the convention center taking selfies and posing for photo ops with her fellow cosplayers. No muss, no fuss, and definitely no rioting involved.
Got to hand it to her, the woman’s got style.
