Unknown to San Diego Comic Convention attendees, actress Lupita Nyong’o was in their midst.

It would’ve been hard to recognize the Academy-award winning actress as she wasn’t in costume for her upcoming movies, “Star Wars” and “Black Panther.”

Instead, she had her Comic-Con cosplaying fun as she dressed in a Pink Ranger bodysuit, along with a white mask, pink shades and a pink bandana.


The Mexican-Kenyan star was less than inconspicuous as she danced, jumped and crawled through exhibits as attendees largely ignored her.
