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.
Many first time parents will be on the look out for nursery furniture, including a wardrobe for their little one. Its often a common mistake to buy a wardrobe that is intended solely for those baby years, without considering the fact that a wardrobe can be bought for a baby, and stay with him or her as they grow into a toddler, and even a young child. Many nursery wardrobes are shorter than standard wardrobes, and are only practical for those first few years. So, it is best to consider the long-term, right from the beginning.
Choosing the colour is the best place to start. First, you need to establish if you would like just one colour, or something more funky, with more than one colour. Plain coloured wardrobes are obviously easier to find, both on and offline. They will also be a more practical buy, as a smooth, plain wooden wardrobe, or a crisp and clean white one, will go with almost all colours of bedding. Remember, if you choose a two-tone, or multicoloured childrens wardrobe, you will be limited in the colour of bedding you can choose. Perhaps its best to have the wardrobe, and other furniture, as the blank canvas, and to add splashes of colour with cushions, bedding and other goodies. Also remember, a pink wardrobe cant be handed down to your next child if its a boy, and vice versa.
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.
