Good morning Outlanders!! We’re creeping ever so close to Saturday and a New Episode (which does require an all-caps thank you very much!! 😄).
To help speed up the time take a gander at this article Terry Dresbach had with Digital Runaway. A very interesting read from a behind the scenes POV.
How did you initially approach the costume design for the show?
It was interesting because with a lot of costume designers, all they want to do is the 18th century because the costumes of the 18th century are so spectacular. You think you have an idea of what that is and you end up with a preconceived notion of what it’s all going to be.
I read the books when they first came out, and I’ve read them at least a dozen times over the years, so I had an idea in my head of what the costumes were going to look like so before I even agreed to do the show my husband* had asked me to put together some ideas of what I thought the costumes should look like.
Then I moved to Scotland and all of it went in the trash because I was here for about 20mins before thinking that everyone would die if they wore this stuff I’d come up with. It wasn’t even remotely appropriate for this country.
* Terry’s husband is Ronald D. Moore, the producer of Outlander.
