Just like walking through the stones, fans went back in time by stepping into the Fraserâ€™s Ridge Outlander cabin outside the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in NYC at New York Comic-Con 2018. STARZ brought to life historic details from colonial America by working with local artisans and brands to create an authentic three-sided version of Jamie and Claire Fraserâ€™s cabin from the upcoming season of Outlander (and also as described in Diana Gabaldonâ€™s novel, Drums of Autumn).
It was truly like stepping into another world away from the hectic hustle and bustle of the Con. Inside the cabin were two apprentice-style workbenches with experts onsite to discuss how the takeaways are made. Fans walked away with a monogrammed luggage tag, an Outlander â€œBrave New Worldâ€ tote bag with the season 4 poster image of Claire and Jamie, the latest Entertainment Weekly featuring new images of Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe in character, and a historic fragrance from Caswell-Massey.
Read what STARZ had to say below about the giveaways:
â€œSTARZ partnered with historic fragrance and beauty brand, Caswell-Massey (est. 1752), to curate a collection of the historically accurate products to offer fans as a unique, show-inspired takeaway. Fans will be able to take home one specially co-branded bottle of their choosing. STARZ also partnered with family-owned leather goods brand, Royce, to offer guests a luggage tag – a necessity for time travel – that can be customized with their monogram on-site.â€
The details were incredible inside the cabin, from period-appropriate books to elixirs and herbs on Claireâ€™s desk, to a map of Riverrun, and the deed to Fraserâ€™s Ridge signed by Governor Tryon and James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser himself.
