Here is a NEW Interview with Trisha Biggar From Entertainment Weekly

From EW:

There’s a new sheriff in the Outlander costume department!
After Terry Dresbach announced her intention to leave the Starz series after season 4, the producers tapped Scotland native Trisha Biggar to take over the very important task of dressing the good folks of Fraser’s Ridge. Here, the veteran designer and BAFTA recipient — whose credits include the Star Wars franchise and the NBC drama Emerald City — talks about joining the Starz drama in its fifth season and why she changed Bree’s wedding dress from blue to “buttermilk creme” in the premiere episode.

More after the jump!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Have you joined a series midway in its run before?
TRISHA BIGGAR: I did take over costumes in season 2 for DaVinci’s Demons. They had done the first season and I did seasons 2 and 3. There was quite a big change in the look of the characters. They wanted that when I took over. This has been slightly different. It’s a continuity of their lives carrying on. I certainly wanted to keep some aspects, some touches from season 4.

Was it scary to take over for Terry Dresbach?
It was interesting to take over! Terry did a fabulous job. Her costumes were beautiful and very diverse over the lives of the characters. I think I’ve done enough. Costumes don’t scare me in that way. It’s obviously challenging because every job is challenging. I’m lucky I come from Scotland so I have a history with a lot of the people who already work here. I wasn’t coming into this job as a stranger. So for me it’s been quite an easy transition in terms of the crew, and also I’ve worked with some of the actors before on other jobs. So that’s nice.

  1. A very interesting interview. All the people behind the scenes who work so hard to keep everything appearing as they would have been in the past must be a real challenge. Times must have been very tough for the pioneers of the Fraser family era – everyone was resourceful, “made do with what they had”, and created their own styles from the only materials they could get their hands on – definitely not “run to the corner store” to buy it generation..
