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.
Establishing your price is one of the first steps. Do you want to buy cheap, and replace the wardrobe in a few years time? Or would you rather invest into something that will last your child, maybe right into their teens? This is an individual thing, and there is no right or wrong. There are also plenty of cheap childrens wardrobes on the market, that look way more expensive than they actually are. Shop around, is the key! Whilst a wooden wardrobe for children will add a warming touch, there are many wardrobes made from other materials that have, for example, been finished in high gloss, for a funky and modern feel. Pay careful attention to the handles - metal handles on a white gloss wardrobe can be just the finishing touch, as can smooth, round wooden handles on a pine wardrobe. This will obviously be dependent on the size of the room. To squeeze more storage space out of your wardrobe, you may want to consider buying a childrens wardrobe that has storage drawers as well. Also look at the hanging space internally - are there two rails, or one?
Different places will need various types of wardrobes. Homes, rooms, offices and even business establishments will need these as storage areas to keep their places tidy and organized. The different types of wardrobes can help in maintaining the neatness and organization of a place. There will be no mess and things that will be scattered on the floor if there is enough space in the wardrobe. Some establishments will even need mainly the services of wardrobes for their business operations. Having enough space within the wardrobe can help in keeping a certain place mess and clutter-free.
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.
