Blacklanderz™ Speak – Cathy! NYCC 2019

One day during a Facebook exchange, a friend mentioned Outlander books knowing that I love to read books in sets.  She also mentioned that the books had been adapted into a show.  I bought all eight books (and read them in under two months) and binge watched S1 & S2. I was overwhelmed and excited but had no one to share my excitement with – … Continue reading Blacklanderz™ Speak – Cathy! NYCC 2019

Blacklanderz™ Speak – Michelle! NYCC 2019

Like Jessica and Margot, this is the second year that I’ve been lucky enough to come to NYCC. From Star Trek to Nancy Drew, I was really excited to hear about all the fantastic stuff coming up this fall. NYCC is particularly amazing if you like to cosplay or just love to see all the stunning costumes. This year, I did S3 Claire and Captain … Continue reading Blacklanderz™ Speak – Michelle! NYCC 2019

Blacklanderz™ Speak – Jessica H.! From NYCC 2019

Like Margot, this was my second comic con experience. I was so excited to return this year now that we knew the ropes. I was a bit disappointed that there wasn’t a booth this year, although there was the advantage of avoiding long lines. Another great thing this year was getting to meet up with people from Twitter! It is such a unique experience to … Continue reading Blacklanderz™ Speak – Jessica H.! From NYCC 2019

Blacklanderz™ Speak – Margot! From NYCC 2019

This was my second time at New York Comic Con that Jessica H. and I attended together. We went together in 2018 when Outlander made its debut at NYCC. Last year I felt that Jess H. and I were just trying to fumble our way through, trying to navigate New York, make it to the convention center and see the Outlander Fraser’s Ridge booth and … Continue reading Blacklanderz™ Speak – Margot!

Blacklanderz™ Speak – Jessica L.! From NYCC 2019

Months before Outlander was announced attending NYCC, my friend talked me into buying badges. We hoped that our favorite show would be there and our dreams came true. I have previously visited NY a few times, so the idea of the big city was not daunting; but, the idea of attending a Comic Con was. I had never been to a Comic Con before, like … Continue reading Blacklanderz™ Speak – Jessica L.! From NYCC 2019

What an experience the NYCC Outlander Panel was for me. First, let me say that this was my FIRST Comic Con e-v-a-h! I had always said I wanted to attend, but I allowed other things to get in the way. Since Outlander premiered, I always said I wanted to attend a panel, but again, I allowed other things to get in the way. Well, this … Continue reading Blacklanderz™ Speak – Vida! From NYCC 2019

Blacklanderz™ Speak – Amanda! From NYCC 2019

I live in NYC, so this was my 12th New York Comic Con. Before Outlander existed, I attended NYCC for Doctor Who events or for seeing cosplay friends. I have gone to several official Outlander events in the city for S 1, 1b, and 2 where Starz would rent out a theater or hold a panel in conjunction with an established forum for pop culture … Continue reading Blacklanderz™ Speak – Amanda!

Blacklanderz™ Speak! From NYCC 2019

Brief Background: I started this group four and a half years ago for two reasons. One, I wanted to learn how to create a website/blog and I loved Outlander. I figured if I was going to spend time building it and keeping it updated, I had to do it around something I loved to talk about. Two, I also wanted to create a platform from … Continue reading Blacklanderz™ Speak! From NYCC 2019
