Maisie Williams Infiltrates Comic Con in Hilarious Spider-Man Costume!

In case you haven't heard, Game of Thrones fully dominated Comic Con 2014.

First, there was the George R.R. Martin Khaleesi photo that went viral for the simple reason that GRRM's face on Emilia Clarke's body is a disturbingly awesome sight.

That was followed by a Game of Thrones cosplay selfie that looks like a Westerosi version of the Sgt. Pepper's cover.

As you might've imagine, a panoramic shot of 50 or so GoT cosplayers featured a bunch of Khaleesis. But what caught out eye was the Arya Stark lookalike in the lower left hand corner. Some even suggested that was the real Maisie Williams!

We now know that it wasn't, but amazingly, Maisie could've easily been looking on as this photo was taken:

Yes, in the most convincing deception since Arya dressed as a boy while traveling the King's Road, Maisie put on a simple Spider-Man mask (and apparently a Guy Fawkes one at some point), to walk freely among fans who would scream like the Hound at Burning Man if they knew who she was.

It's an ingenious plan, when you think about it. Sure, Maisie had the means to bust out some boss-level cosplay, but then she would've drawn attention to herself. 

This way, with her height of 5'0" (seriously) and budget get-up, she gets dismissed as a giddy tween enjoying the Con for the first time.

She'll need that sort of sharp thinking if the Starks are gonna continue dropping like flies (retroactive spoiler alert).

Viserys was up there with King Joffrey in terms of douchebags we loved to hate. Even so, his death by molten gold is tough to watch.
