Sometimes we just have to get away from the whirlwind we call life. These are our escapes…

Emerald City Comicon: Our Panel and Exhibit Hall Experience

ECCC, Emerald City Comicon,  was held the weekend of March 2-6 in Seattle, Washington.  Sass3 was fortunate enough to attend.  Once we discovered Caitriona and Sam would be in attendance, we quickly acted on the opportunity to buy tickets for this comicon.  We then seized the moment to purchase the single and group photos to make our dreams come true to meet them!

An Outlander SoCal Edition Event: Back In Time With The Frasers

Outlander fans gather and unite quite often.  Sass3 belong to a very active group, Outlander SoCal Edition, in which many members create and host events.

Back In Time With The Frasers is one such event organized and hosted by fellow Outlander fan Victoria. Her creativity and attention to detail made this event quite incredible. Victoria went above-and-beyond hand-making many gifts and centerpieces – all without a committee!

The Making of Outlander with Tara Bennett and Script Writers – Pasadena, California

To some people, we may seem a bit fanatic, especially to those who have not read or watched the Outlander Series.  We amaze ourselves, at times, for the lengths we go through just to attend an Outlander event.  Although Sass3 attended Tara Bennett’s book signing of The Making of Outlander (about 350 miles away in Scottsdale, Arizona) back in November, we found ourselves, again, taking yet another journey to see her – all in the name of Outlander! We made a second trip to Pasadena, California, (and purchased an additional book) for one more autograph session.  We can never grow tired of Outlander – yeah, we’re a bit fanatic!
