Outlander Costume Designer

Reply To: Questions????


I know that film and TV work very differently to theatre in terms of when and where the costume discussion starts in relation to the production. Do you get a brief from the producer and if so how far in advance of the series/episode? Also do the episode directors have any input into the costumes or is that all decided before they get anywhere near the filming of the episode? Have you had any costumes that have needed to be altered during an episode as they didn’t quite work out as conceived or the action required a different approach?
