Terry Dresbach On Creating The Look of ‘Outlander’

I’ve loved every costume Terry, Nina and crew have made thus far for the show, especially S4. They deserve all the awards in the world. ~ Vida For over four years, costume designer Terry Dresbach has created the costumes for the cast of Outlander. Time-travel, continents and centuries meant Dresbach was always planning ahead. It also meant she had to be a huge fan of the books … Continue reading Terry Dresbach On Creating The Look of ‘Outlander’

Outlander Costume Design: Jocasta

At River Run, Jocasta’s look “demonstrates a relaxing of Jocasta’s formal attire and indicates a softer feel whilst her relationship with Brianna becomes more open and almost maternal. The Pet-en-l’ier, with sacque back is made from an overdyed cotton print fabric with self-ruched trim and shot metallic silk edging. ~ Nina Ayers The caraco was made from a digitally printed cotton sateen with a braided … Continue reading Outlander Costume Design: Jocasta

Outlander Costume Design

George Washington He doesn’t appear in the books, but producers thought it would be fun to introduce his character as a chance meeting for Jamie and Claire in the show. For Claire Fraser, it is like meeting a movie star and she is scripted to be a little goofy in her questions for him.

Outlander Set Design: The Wilmington Theatre Scene

A fun set for texture this season was the design of the theatre in Wilmington. This allowed production to make something much more opulent in design that many other sets this season. They used an old church in Glasgow and, in 48 hours, gave it a total overhaul in terms of the dressing, building a huge proscenium arch with lots of rich red velvets and … Continue reading Outlander Set Design: The Wilmington Theatre Scene

Outlander Set Design: The Gloriana

I ‘luvbs’ me some Jon Gary Steele set designs! ~ Vida The interior of Stephen Bonnet’s ship, the Gloriana, is the same boat that was the hero ship of Season 3, the Artemis.

Bree and Roger’s Time Travel Wardrobes

Brianna Time Travels Her costumes leading up to her time travel were deeply personal for me. Her ‘through the stones’ dress was quite the dilemma. We had previously decided that Claire knew too much of life in the eighteenth century to think that a “Jessica Gutenberg” (Gunne Sax) dress would pass muster, but I knew how much it meant to the fans and made the … Continue reading Bree and Roger’s Time Travel Wardrobes

24 ‘Outlander’ Costume Secrets You Definitely Never Noticed

Dresbach talks Season 1 Easter eggs, sending Brianna through the stones, and why this is her last season with the show. Over six years and four seasons, costume designer Terry Dresbach has turned Outlander, one of the hardest-to-define shows on television (a romance-epic that spans two centuries, multiple continents, and dozens of history book-altering events, for starters) into one of the most beautifully-costumed, as well. … Continue reading 24 ‘Outlander’ Costume Secrets You Definitely Never Noticed

Costumes (S3)

I’ve never viewed a television series where the costumes change every season.  Though there weren’t that many changes for our main characters, there were additional ones we’d not seen before – slaves, Maroons, children etc., and this season went between centuries. Here are some of our favorites from S3. Every season has Redcoats. This season we saw a more rugged Jamie depicting his life in … Continue reading Costumes (S3)

Outlander Casting: Duncan’s Return

Duncan Lacroix’s character, Murtagh Fitzgibbons Fraser, is truly a fan favorite. We were ALL glad to see his return and look forward to what the writers have in store for him. Again, the book readers and non-book readers are in the same place, as it relates to him, and have no clue what is going to happen!  ~ Vida Best Godfather E-V-A-H!
