Thousands of pop culture enthusiasts arrived at Dragon Con 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia this past weekend dressed up in cosplay. While the outfits were stunning, hilarious and, well, shocking, one in particular stole the show.
The world’s coolest grandmother captured the gaze of every attendee in sight when she arrived dressed as Olenna Tyrell from Game of Thrones.

Game of Thrones fans know that the statement is a nod to Olenna Tyrell’s confession to Jaime Lannister before her death, disclosing her part in Joeffrey Lannister’s death. The infamous statement cemented Olenna’s legacy and spawned hilarious memes.

The hilarious costume took Twitter by storm, eliciting hilarious reactions.
This is the pinnacle of both cosplay, and #DragonCon. All events hereafter are canceled.
