Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister with his ever-present glass of wine, overlooking the valley from a rock. Oh, Dinklage, you masterful thespian you. But. Wait. What if we told you that isn’t Peter Dinklage. Because it isn’t! It’s professional cosplayer Omar Diego Milla Machuca doing such convincing cosplay that we now finally understand why cosplay is a thing. The makeup, the costume, the stance, the backdrop. #mindblown

We can’t help but wonder what Dinklage must think of this guy, if he’s seen him. It’s got to feel like that Twilight Zone moment when someone sees themselves in another time, another life, another dimension.

Machuca seems to be having a pretty sweet time jetting all over his native Peru for cosplay events. After this pic, dude better brace himself for becoming famous in his own right, capitalizing on his god-given lineage visage and the immediate status it gives him. Which is exactly what a Lannister would do.
