Life in Scotland: Outlander

I sometimes think that no matter where I go and what I do, I will never escape the 18th century.  This time though, it has become a part of my life in a very different way than before.  Since the begining of my summer break, I've been working as a Costume Trainee on the Starz production of Outlander which is filming here in Scotland.  This is my first experience working on a TV show, and I've learned quite a lot in the last couple months!

 (Official production still of the two main characters: Claire and Jaime)

The series premiers on the 9th of August in the US, and if historical drama and fighting and romance is your thing you should definitely give it a watch!  Apparently the book series it's based on has quite loyal followers, but not having read the books myself I can't tell you much on that score. ;)

Check out the trailer below and see what you think!  Even if I wasn't working on it, it's the sort of show I'd probably be really into.


  1. That's so cool! I started reading the first book - about halfway through now - and I'm looking forward to the series. The costuming looks lovely!

  2. Aaaahhh. I've read the whole series, bought the comic book and I'm dying to see this show. That's so cool that you are working on it.

  3. Totally need to read these books, this looks awesome! Thanks for sharing.
