A mysterious green goblin caused quite the stir at the 2023 Emmys Awards on Monday night.

While attending the star-studded show, reality TV star Princess Poppy showed up as the scary monster, which caused a bit of awe and confusion among viewers at home.

While her fellow cast mates dressed to the nines, RuPaul's Drag Race star Princess Poppy showed up in a head-to-toe green ensemble that also included pop culture references like Jabba the Hutt, Roz from Monsters, Inc., and a witch from the 1985 Tom Cruise movie Legend.

And the outfit played exactly the way she thought it would.

"I wanted to do the exact opposite of what is expected of you when you go to an event like this. I wanted to take decorum and turn it on its head," Poppy told Entertainment Weekly while on the red carpet.

"Mainly I wanted to be a troll-slash-hag. I wanted to be so shocking that you just have to turn and look at me — in the worst way possible."
