Eighteenth century Scotland is the setting for the STARZ original series Outlander, which is based off of a series of books. Because of this (and the wild manipulations of time travel in the series), the costume designer of the show definitely has their work cut out for them. But this is something that the author of the series, Diana Gabaldon, seems to relish.
When traveling around various museums around Scotland, Gabaldon loves taking photographs of the clothing she admires so she can send it to her own show’s costume designer. The inspirations for the attire are certainly interesting ones and that is the stance that the video below seems to take, as well.
Costumes have become a big part of many shows these days, with many using the opportunities presented by the lavish wardrobes to vie for Emmy Awards once the awards season rolls around. For example, shows like Mad Men are renowned for their ability to accurately portray the way clothing was worn back in the 1960s, while shows like Game of Thrones do an expert job at creating costumes for a fictional, albeit somewhat medieval, storytelling universe.
