Full costume selfies are the best selfies.

Sophie Skelton, Caitriona Balfe, and Sam Heughan

Nothing says "historically accurate" like a smartphone and puffy coat, right?

Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan

The stars of Outlander work so hard they can't stay awake by the end of the season. Or Caitriona can't, anyway.

Does it ruin the magic to see the camera there? Not for us, either.

Just chilling at Frasers Fridge. No big.

Sometimes famous fans visit the set and everyone involved needs to geek out with Instagram pics.

Caitriona shared this picture of her and Costume Designer Emma-Louise Ryan on set back in 2014.

This mirror selfie in the makeup trailer is quintessential behind-the-scenes stuff.

Sam Heughan and Cairtriona Balfe

Here's one of Sam and Caitriona's earliest on-location friendship selfies, from way back in 2014.

Lauren Lyle would make an excellent 18th century influencer.

Anderson's cat picture can't beat Sam's cat selfie though.

César Domboy and Keith Fleming

Beach naps on the Outlander set. We've never been so jealous.

Set Breakfasts

Anita Anderson also gave the world a glimpse at the glamorous world of Outlander set breakfasts.

Caitrion Balfe, César Domboy, and Lauren Lyle

César Domboy shared this "seasons collide" selfie, and we thank him for it.

Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe

Sam shared this (clearly boozy) photo of him and Caitriona at one of Outlander's wrap parties.

Sam's Students

Sam Heughan shared this photo of him and students from The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland on the Outlander set.

Lauren Lyle

Lauren, expertly avoiding an Outlander #CoffeeGate situation by having her coffee far from hot sets.

César Domboy

Just a casual "hanging out at the trailer in character" shot shared by César Domboy.

Sam Heughan

The best part of this in-costume rugby shoutout video is Caitriona Balfe video bombing it.

Sam Heughan and Romann Berrux

This selfie welcomed Romann to Instagram and we can't think of a better introduction to the IG world.

Lauren Lyle and César Domboy

If it weren't for the water bottle, this could pass for a still from the show.

Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan

Caitriona and Sam, like all best friends, kill time taking random photos together, like this one of their shadows, complete with a trolly caption from Caitriona about Sam's height.

Richard Rankin

Richard Rankin is also a fan of shadow selfies on set. Must be an Outlander cast thing.

And César Domboy, too. The shadow selfie is basically an Outlander rite of passage.

You know, for those times when your camera needs a shower cap.

César Domboy and Romann Berrux

Two Ferguses in one photo? We're fine with that.

Caitriona Balfe

Fun fact: The Outlander cast spends their downtime on set doing things like watching sheep racing.

Caitriona Balfe

And watching goats dance. As if you didn't already think the Outlander cast had the best jobs, right?

Puffy coat and a camera coverup. Scotland weather is brutal.
