Like Gabaldon, without Maril Davis there wouldn’t be the Outlander TV series we know of today. You will usually see her on Twitter with her “Heard on Set” pieces, although there haven’t been many from her lately due to locations. However, she is one of the masterminds behind the series, working with Ron D. Moore and Matthew B. Roberts.
Davis has helped to bring the characters to life. She’s helped to mold the TV world we know of today. Whether you love the changes or not, you have to commend her ability to work with changing writing teams and help bring the characters to life.
But she’s not alone in bringing Outlander to life.
The storytelling is beautiful, but it wouldn’t be the same without the costumes. Terry Dresbach is the woman behind those beautiful dresses, the amazing kilts, and the gorgeous costumes you see on set. She’ll bring something from the books and make it real, and then adapt other storylines and elements to create something exciting and vibrant.
Whether you loved or hated the Bat-Dress, this was Dresbach’s masterpiece. It was full of thought and originality, meshing together the 1960s and the 1760s effortlessly (well, there was probably a lot of effort and work, but it doesn’t look it—and I say that in a good way).
There are so many more pieces to come and surprises to jump out. Here’s to many more seasons to come!
