On the set of a movie there is always a wardrobe trailer as part of the circus. However, the actors or performers wardrobe is hung up in their trailer before they arrive for the days filming. All pieces are delivered to the performer along with underclothing, especially if the weather is cold. Actors place hot packs in their footwear, pockets and/or around their body and are given a cover up jacket. The jacket serves to conceal the wardrobe, keep the actor warm and protect the costume from the elements.
After the wardrobe designer/assistant has talked to the actor (parent for child actors) over the phone and taken down their information they will shop for the actors wardrobe sizes either at a local mall if everyday attire is to be worn for the shoot or they will schedule a fitting for the actor to come in and try different stock outfits or pieces on. If the assistants have bought out the stores in the mall the actor will be called again, but this time to schedule a wardrobe fitting at the production office in the costume department. The wardrobe fitting scheduled by the wardrobe assistant will be for a day and time thats convenient for both parties. The actor will arrive 15 minutes early for the fitting and bring any article of clothing he/she has been asked to by the wardrobe assistant. This usually happens for fittings for commercials. An actor might be asked to bring a pair of dress shoes or running shoes, belt, vest, etc. If the wardrobe is used in the commercial the production will pay a fee to rent that article of clothing from the actor. This action usually rewards the actor with additional payment. Special clothing and/or equipment rents out for about $25.
The cost of antique wardrobes can be prohibitive. The expense of any restorative work performed is added into the price. The history of the piece may have significance; therefore, you are essentially buying a piece of history. An alternative to this would be to search flea markets for antique wardrobes and do the restoration work yourself. This allows you to create a wardrobe that is uniquely yours. However, this can be a very time-consuming task depending on the age, condition and size of the wardrobe. Purchasing an antique wardrobe is environmentally responsible. You are buying an existing piece and preserving our natural resources. There is a very large market currently for antique wardrobes. They combine the functionality of todays furniture with the character and beauty of history, while not taking anything from the environment.
In a customized wardrobe, various kinds of doors can be used; some people may prefer the look of sliding doors instead of the regular ones; some may prefer vinyl doors and panels as they are mostly moisture resistant and have a tough, durable and decorative surface resulting in a stylish door with an excellent resistance to impact. Vinyl doors also reduce the danger of edges catching or chipping. Sliding doors, on the other hand, add the required aesthetic appeal in an otherwise ordinary wardrobe. They come in sleek ceiling to floor sizes and cover the bedroom storage from wall to wall; traditional doors are unable match the quality and versatility which the sliding doors in a wardrobe provide. Standard wood effect, mirror and glass sliding doors are not only beautiful from the outside but also smart from the inside.
Creating a wardrobe design to make your own wardrobe can be the best way to ensure that you get a wardrobe that is created specifically for you. Creating a custom wardrobe design will allow you to factor in the various elements of your rooms decor, your use of the wardrobe, and how much use the wardrobe will receive. The first thing to consider is where the wardrobe will go. Do you have a special niche for it, or will one need to be created? Will the closet need to be built into the wall, or will you need a free standing wardrobe? Evaluate the space in which you want to build your custom wardrobe, and see how much space you can work with.
