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.
For those in the film industry, wardrobe refers to the costume or outfit an actor, performer or extra wears while on a TV or movie set. These outfits can be everyday clothing to stock costumes to those costumes made from scratch. When an actor auditions for a role they will fill out and complete a casting form with their personal information, body sizes and measurements. Upon the actor booking the role, this information is then sent to the wardrobe office/department and/or a phone call is made immediately to the actor to review or collect his/her particulars including measurements. The actor must have this information readily available even if it has been submitted at the audition/callback. A measurement sheet is needed by all actors or those going out for principal auditions.
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.
A wardrobe is an essential component in any and every house. Like a bed is required to sleep in, a wardrobe is required store our clothes in (sometimes shoes included). This especially pertains to people or families who have an extensive collection of clothes, shoes and accessories. The most important aspect of any wardrobe is functionality and versatility. Customizable space is especially useful, where we can modify the space available for different needs. Hence, the drawers, hangers, boxes inside the wardrobe play an important role deciding the efficiency of a wardrobe. Apart from readymade wardrobes, there are also options available for customized wardrobes where we can create our own wardrobe with sliding doors or hinged doors; whatever is right for us and what we wear. Many companies who provide customized wardrobes let the buyer combine individual frames together to suit their style. They also let the buyer design the inside of the wardrobe, providing them with a big choice of shelves, drawers, clothes rails and so on.
