Black Panther’s Lupita Nyong’o stopped by the showfloor during last weekend’s Comic-Con International in San Diego, though most in attendance probably weren’t aware of it. Nyong’o shared a video on her Instagram page that shows the actress anonymously dancing around the convention center, disguised as the Power Rangers’ Pink Ranger, albeit with a headscarf and an identity-concealing white mask.
Interacting with a few, noticed by some and ignored by most, Nyong’o can be seen busting moves within DC Comics’ booth as well as Lucasfilm’s, in addition to various other locations. Moving to the sounds of Kendrick Lamar’s I Love Myself, the 60-second video concludes with Nyong’o momentarily removing her mask, confirming her identity and probably leaving those in the background of the video slapping their foreheads in disbelief.

Nyong’o, who plays Nakia in the Black Panther film, isn’t the first celebrity to covertly walk through the exhibit hall in cosplay. In past years, Daniel Radcliffe meandered the convention floor dressed as Spider-Man, and Bryan Cranston infamously strolled through the hall dressed as his Breaking Bad alter-ego Walter White.
On the other hand, Nyong’o was readily recognized during her scheduled appearance at Marvel Studios’ Hall H panel, where she helped promot the film.
Black Panther hits theaters on February 16, 2018. Nyong’o stars alongside Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Sterling K. Brown and John Kani.
