Jamie Lee Curtis spent last weekend winning over the denizens of Comic-Con (her crack about selling yogurt was a highlight of the Scream Queens panel), and then used this weekend to cosplay as Vega from Street Fighter.

Curtis attended this year’s Evolution Championship Series, better known as EVO, with her family, and dressed as the masked character to avoid detection.

“Grad trip to @evo2k. 2 stay incognito was Vega who wears a mask. @StreetFighter family. DJ, Dr. Bosconovich, Makoto,” Curtis wrote on Twitter. (Her husband, Christopher Guest, played the role of Dr. Bosconovich.)

“I play Street Fighter more than you will ever know,” Curtis said in an interview earlier this year, during which she also mentioned taking her son to EVO. “I’m that person. I spend a lot of time playing Street Fighter. I play a lot of Street Fighter.”

EVO is described as the “largest and longest-running fighting game tournaments in the world.
