Hello there, forum! I recently stumbled into here after discovering the amazingly fantastic Outlander – I got inspired, and I now want to make a costume, true to the series’ period.
As a young student, living in Norway – my budget is not noteworthy, so I must scan thrift shops, buy cloth online, ask friends and family for old clothing and so on.
So, I guess my main question is, what materials would I need to gather in order to create an “authentic” Outlander costume? I want to either make Dougall’s general attire or Jamie’s wedding attire. As I live in Norway, I’m not sure how easy it will be – but if it’s challenging, it’s fun!
Why all this? Well, I love Scotland and its history. It’s entirely unique, and interesting. Also, my cousin is married to a scotsman! She now lives in Whitburn, West Lothian. I also enjoy attenting to fairs, meet-ups, cons and the likes. So this really caught my interest.
I hope this isn’t a question that is too similar to the others – since I guess there’s quite many “how to make” threads here.
Love from Norway!
