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.
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.
Depending on the size and make of the wardrobe can depend on the next feature of the double wardrobe, the extra space above the hanging rail. With many wardrobes, additional shelving can be found with a strong solid shelve made from the same wood used to produce the wardrobe. This can be used for many items from the bedroom as the depth from the top of the wardrobe to the shelf is usually quite a few inches in height. A feature which can be very useful but not as common is an added drawer or series of small drawers found at the bottom of the wardrobe. This means the hanging rail can be higher up to provide the same amount of hanging space, or alternatively, the same higher as a wardrobe without additional drawers but provides hanging space which is lacking in height.
