Cosplay can be pretty useful, especially if you use it as misdirection. And that’s exactly what John Boyega, star of the upcoming Star Wars movie, did at a convention recently.

As The Daily Dot writes, Boyega was at the Star Wars Celebration last weekend...as a Clone Trooper. Nobody noticed!

That was the point, of course. Boyega would have gotten swarmed if anyone knew who he was. But with the Trooper helmet, he could interact with fans one-on-one without anyone suspecting a thing:

Ha. What good shenaanigans. Between this and Bryan Cranston at Comic-Con, I’m now going to be paranoid about the possibility that the people in masks at conventions are actually all famous stars. One can dream!
