Productions give the costume designer/wardrobe department a budget. For everyday clothing bought from stores, but not selected by the director for the performers, will be returned to the various stores for refund. Wardrobe warehouses boast rows and rows ceiling high of costumes ready to be rented for specific period pieces. Costume stock are pulled from their racks and shelves ready to clothe the actors. These warehouses also have boxes and boxes and boxes of accessories as well. From all the different types and sizes of footwear, hats, gloves, jewellery to masks, head-gear, underwear or other uncommon specialty items such as army fatigues, peasant rags or zombie duds, etc.
As payment goes, actors get paid to participate in wardrobe fittings. They get paid for a 2 hour call, but it usually takes under an hour to complete. Sometimes an actor will have to participate in multiple wardrobe fittings especially if he/she is having their costume made for them. As the actor tries on different outfits, different combinations of outfits or ideas for original pieces a photo will be taken of the actor in each outfit. These photos are then sent to the director and/or producer(s) to get final approval. The director may select an outfit or outfits from these photos or ask the designer to come up with other options or suggestions.
Wardrobes span back many years and have come a long way in both their design, size and build quality. We all remember back when we were younger, of our parents having a significant piece of furniture in the bedroom and that being their wardrobe. For many families a double wardrobe in each bedroom is sufficient which means the double wardrobe is the most popular size of wardrobe. Nomatter what manufacturer has designed and built the wardrobe, each make all stems from the same basic qualifications which give a wardrobe its characteristics. The first being the large wide double doors which have a handle or latch to open the door. With many wardrobes, pine is used to build these pieces of furniture as this wood usually weights less than oak and is cheaper to due to this fast growing quality.
