This recent trend of famous people dressing up and hanging out undercover at events is great.

But Lupita Nyong'o should win some sort of award for this delightful, dance-filled romp through San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend.

Here she is dressed as a pink Power Ranger (with custom head wear), having a ton of fun prancing around the convention.

All without anybody realizing it's an Oscar winner and Star Wars actress underneath the mask.

Well done, Nyong'o. Well done.

She was also there in normal-people clothing to promote her upcoming Marvel film Black Panther, which is out in 2018. This winter she'll return to the Star Wars universe as Maz Kanata (the orange CGI alien) for The Last Jedi.

And here she is at the end of the video proving it is indeed her.
