NEW Interview with Terry Dresbach from Town and Country   1 comment

Here is a NEW Interview with Terry Dresbach from Town and Country

From T&C:

As Brianna stumbles her way through 18th-century Scotland at the beginning of this week’s episode of Outlander, it becomes immediately apparent that her clothing is a far-cry from the expertly constructed “bat-suit” Claire wore back in time last season.

But in actuality, Brianna’s ’70s attire was inspired by what Claire wore through the stones, not on the television show, but in the source material, Diana Gabaldon’s book.

More after the jump!

“In the books, which I read about a billion times when they first came out, [Claire] is written as wearing a Jessica McClintock dress which is essentially a Gunne Sax. As a reader, I didn’t really notice the costumes too much. But that costume I did notice,” costume designer Terry Dresbach tells me over the phone, as we chatted about this fall’s exhibit out Outlander costumes at Savannah College of Art and Design.

“I remember thinking, ‘But she’s already been there. She’s already lived in the 18th century. Why would she choose something that would get her like thrown into an insane asylum? She knows better. She would freeze to death!’ And out of that thought, the ‘bat-suit ‘from season three was born. Like, if you are a really intelligent capable woman, would you go back in something you’d either freeze or be killed for? No. You’d figure out some practical way to handle it.”

  1. From what I’ve seen – Brianna’s dress would not have a caused an upset once she went through the Stones and into 18th Century Scotland.
