To be honest, we’ve already seen more than our fill of “Handmaid’s Tale” cosplay doubling a political protest since the inauguration, and it was on full display when Vice President Mike Pence visited Denver Thursday to speak at a fundraiser for the Colorado Republican Party.
This gathering was organized by Indivisible Denver, and the group spared no expense on getting those red capes just right.

Good thing we have Trump as a buffer between Pence and the Oval Office then, huh?

Ahem … “access.” Go grab your credit card and access all the contraception you want.
The protest was to begin at 3:30 p.m. rain, snow, or shine, so too bad for all of those maidens who have day jobs. And what do male allies do to protest? Dress up in full handmaid costume, or stay home and do the sewing?
I love when people think Hollywood fiction is real.
Can't wait for sexy Handmaid Halloween party costumes! https://t.co/pSnSvzlOIO

Yay, a real-life “Handmaid’s Tale” — just what we voted for.
Welcome to America. Where our stupidity level goes all the way to 11. https://t.co/XWrNO0H9nO

The best way to recognize an oppressed group is if they can afford to cosplay during work hours. https://t.co/yEjENHJTUn

I didn't vote for Trump, but I'm now convinced that there's such a thing as Trump Derangement Disorder. https://t.co/xDx0lzdrps
