11 celebs who fooled us all with their secret cosplay disguises
When you’re a celebrity at San Diego Comic-Con, it’s got to be pretty trippy seeing everyday regular folk walking around in elaborate costumes that make them look exactly like you. Unless you’re one of these celebs, of course — the few, the proud, the totally awesome who sneak around incognito dressed as their favorite TV, film and comics characters. Check out some of our favorites below:
1. Daniel Radcliffe
2. Maisie Williams
Never to be outdone by a mere man, Arya Stark — erm, Maisie Williams — took on the DanRad challenge and also dressed as the webbed one last year. Who wore it best?!
3. Jaden Smith
4. Osric Chau
“Supernatural” alum Chau is a cosplay freak, and we mean that in the best way possible. He tends to attend “SPN” conventions in various states of ridiculous garb, but our favorite was definitely from last year’s SDCC, when he dressed as a character from “Journey” and surprised even his cast mates.
5. Peter Jackson
I had a fun day at Comic Con walking among you all. Did anyone see the Evil Jester? Some of you did because you asked him to pose for pics! Cheers, Peter J
Always be kind to the Evil Jester standing in line in front of you at SDCC — you never know when it might be legendary film director Peter Jackson in disguise, like at SDCC ’14.
6. Adam Savage
7. Jack Black
8. Bryan Cranston
9. Matt Smith
10. Audrina Patridge
You know what’s a good way to go completely incognito? With full body-paint and a mask, of course! Just ask “The Hills” star Audrina Patridge, who hit the Con floor in 2014 as Mystique.
11. Simon Pegg

Pssst… Simon… it’s not really a secret if you tweet about it and give us advance warning? But still — nice work.
