If there's one thing that Game of Thrones' Arya Stark got wrong, it's making every other person with a silicone mask believe that they can slip in and out of places unnoticed.
On Saturday, drug lord Clauvino da Silva (42) tried to break out of the Gericinó prison in Rio de Janeiro, disguised as his daughter nonetheless.
Needless to say, the plan was unsuccessful.
Reportedly, da Silva, also known as Baixinho, or "Shorty," dressed up as his daughter, when she visited him in prison, and tried walking out of the front door.
His low-grade disguise comprised a pair of jeans, pink T-shirt with donuts on it, a wig, glasses, a bra, and a silicone mask.
Of course, this meant that his 19-year-old daughter had to stay behind bars.
Evidently, the 19-year-old, Ana Gabriele Leandro da Silva, may have to officially stay in prison now, as she will be charged with abetting prison escape, Rio newspaper Extra reported. The crime is punishable by up to two years in prison.
Strangely, it wasn't even da Silva's cheap disguise that eventually foiled his bid to escape.
According to the Associated Press, it was his nervousness as he tried escaping through the prison entrance that gave him away.
Rio's State Secretary of Prison Administration also released a video that shows da Silva taking off his disguise after being instructed to do so by police officials.

The convict was serving a 73-year-long prison sentence at the Gericinó prison for drug trafficking as part of the infamous faction 'Comando Vermelho' or Red Command. He has now been transferred to a unit of a maximum-security prison and will face disciplinary sanctions.
Incidentally, this was not the first time da Silva planned to escape from prison.
In January 2013, he was among the 31 prisoners, who had tunneled out of the same prison through the sewers.
At that time, four inmates were caught, but da Silva had made it out.
Unfortunately for him, he was arrested the next month from Rio's western districts.
