All that aside, the Outlander Costume Exhibit far far far exceeded my expectations. If you are going to be in the area before the exhibit ends,June 8 thru August 14, 2016, I highly encourage you to stop by and enjoy this amazing collection.
From a Costumers perspective, each article of clothing is a masterpiece. The attention to each and every detail is exquisite, the metallic lace trims, the hand-painted fabrics, the hand stitching - was breathtaking. In my opinion, these modern day creations can rival some of the most beautiful extant pieces of the same era!
I came to view the hand-painted muslin and then noticed that there were four other pieces that were also hand painted! I am very curious as to how they achieved such exact definition. I think they must have used some sort of "resist" in the paint liquid, such as what is used for silk scarf painting, and a tipped painting implement. There was no bleed over of the paint and the lines are very precise. As much as everyone will love the Red Gown, my heart was with the Hand-painted Muslin.
