Jamie Fraser’s Leather Coat: From Request to Reality

 Happy World Outlander Day!

Outlander is celebrating it’s twenty-sixth year on June 1st. ♥ The unique storytelling abilities of Diana Gabaldon are priceless. With a single stroke, she captures our imagination, creates an irreversible emotional connection, and opens the door to a new world that can not be singly defined. As we watch the books get skillfully adapted to the screen, there is no doubt that the attachment to this series will become inevitably stronger.

As we honor this special day, we were ecstatic to learn that AbbyShot is also acknowledging World Outlander Day with the commencement of pre-orders for their newest masterpiece: Jamie Fraser’s Leather Coat! With so many reasons to celebrate, today seemed like the perfect opportunity for us, Sass3, to sit down with each other to talk about our natural love for all things Outlander. After all, we still surprise ourselves at the plethora of times we drop everything – leaving our family, even our careers – just to experience Outlander! However, our love of attending events would not be complete without wearing the clothing and accessories that illustrate our appreciation for this dynamic series.

Join us as we spend time discussing our bond to Outlander, our appreciation for the original costume designs, and our new found attachment to AbbyShot‘s newest fan memorabilia – Jamie Fraser’s Leather Coat. ♥

An Outlander Review of Claire Fraser’s Riding Gloves by AbbyShot

One of the greatest things as an Outlander fan is the growing availability of memorabilia we can collect or give as gifts to our dearest friends.  Searching for novel and unique items not only supports our natural addiction for the series, it also entertains us while the season is not in session.  Clothing that resembles the Outlander costumes are definitely a prize any fan would hope to own.

In today’s blog, we take a look at the officially-licensed Claire Fraser’s Riding Gloves from AbbyShot.  As we appreciate the level of craftsmanship of this item, we will also discuss how history shaped the use of gloves, our overall impressions, and our appreciation for having this unique piece to add to our Outlandish wardrobe.

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!
