Outlander and all the wonderful and…odd…things it has inspired.

Standard

This morning, I made my cuppa and then sat down to say good morning to all my Tweeps and Facebook friends. I was just strolling through pics of my friends’ kids doing wonderful kid things when suddenly I saw this

and promptly spit my latest sip of coffee all over the dogs sitting on my lap who then promptly gave me a  “what the what the?” look. Having heard Diana talk about this very issue and the whole added “Devil’s Mark” thing, I, of course, screen shot the post and sent it off to Herself.

Now, my curiosity was piqued and I went looking for the best and most odd things this Outlander phenomenon has inspired.

Things I’d love to buy

If I had budgeted funds for Outlander fandom purchases besides books these things would be on my shopping list.

Beautiful jewlery like this:

But these might be the things you’re looking for! There are 100s of pages on Etsy and Pinterest and  100s of items to choose from!

Funny stuff that only Outlander fans would understand

Everyday someone in the fandom posts something that makes me snort and giggle, They post memes, blogs, hastags, like:

Obviously,there isn’t enough room to post all the great stuff a love of Outlander has brought into the world. These are just a few that appealed to me. Love to see your picks!

P.S. I’ve been receiving some wonderful responses from folks who have reminded me that the most wonderful thing about Outlander fandom is that because Diana wrote a book they have made real friendships with people from all over the world!

Yep!

      • My discretionary spending skyrocketed with fandom purchases when LOTR was all the rage. Looks as though I could do it again with Outlander goodies. ( I will NOT go to Etsy, I will NOT go to ebay, I will NOT go to ……. ) Promises, promises.

      • Really? You self-restraint is admirable. In addition to all the books, I have Claire’s ring with the inscription, two tattoos, several items with the Fraser of Lovat and McKenzie tartans and insignia, in addition of numerous Davidson of Tulloch (my clan) tartans, kilt pins, etc. Then, once the full season is available on Blu-ray, I’ll have to have that. You can see why I need to avoid Etsy, ebay and their ilk.
