We’ll be recapping every episode of Outlander this season, both in blog post AND podcast. Kendra and Sarah will be focusing mostly on the costumes — designed by Terry Dresbach — in our blog posts, but probably tackling both the costumes and the story itself in our podcasts. You can find the podcast at the bottom of this post, or on iTunes!
For those who aren’t regular Frock Flicks readers: this blog and podcast is all about costumes in historical movies and TV shows, and we approach things from the angle of history. So, expect us to be talking about the costumes primarily from the point of view of comparison with the real history of the 1740s. We’ll also talk about costume in terms of story, and the deviations that come with this one having the fantasy element of time travel. But, know that when we talk about that dreaded phrase “historical accuracy,” we’re not doing it to be mean or judgy. It’s just one lens through which to watch this fabulous show.
Your Frock Flickers are still in Paris (you can find pics of what we’ve been up to on Facebook!), so it’s just Kendra today on the blog while Sarah madly packs to head home! You’ll find both of us on the podcast, as well as two special guests: fashion historian and former professional TV/film costume designer Lisa VandenBerghe, and fashion historian/cordwainer (shoemaker) Francis Classe!
We’re back in Scotland, baby! And all the costumes are nicely made from interesting fabrics and supremely un-shiny. Bah!
Thanks to Kiss Them Goodbye for the screen caps!
