Dragon Con: A Habit of Handmaids, Under His Eye

Even though Hulu's award-winning series The Handmaid's Tale isn't your typical convention fare, the red cloak and white bonnets were everywhere at Dragon Con this year.

We're thinking the collective noun of handmaids is a habit, but we're still work shopping that.

This collection of photos comes to us from Kristen Schlicht, who very kindly is letting us run the group photos, which are pretty damn impressive.

We really love that Marriott Carpet Handmaid, and the Commander getting his comeuppance, at the expense of that scotch.

Thanks again Kristen, and to everyone in the group for putting their time and effort into costumes, posing, and celebrating Margaret Atwood's seminal work.

The Handmaid's Tale is set to return to Hulu for a third season, seasons one and two are currently streaming now.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
