Movie pre-production for wardrobe can start about six weeks ahead of shooting. The director and/or producers are shown drawn artist conceptions, coloured and swatched with small pieces of costume for each character. These samplings offer an idea of what the proposed costumes/wardrobe will be worn by the actors. Instructions are given about the cut and fit of the costumes, alterations to existing stock, etc. Costumes built or made from scratch usually involve a costume designer. The designer researches the era or time period, shops for the materials, designs the ideas/concepts and puts together the pieces for the costumes. Costumes designed by designers are primarily Historical or period pieces, fantasy pieces and/or modern/futuristic.
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.
The first type of custom design wardrobe is called "bespoke". Bespoke design is a design that you and a wardrobe designer come up with together, and which is constructed by a local craftsman or workshop specifically for you. You are able to set the design, style, colors, and pattern of your wardrobe, and you are even able to select the wood that you want to use. Once you and your designer have agreed on a design for your wardrobe, the plans are sent off to a local craftsman to be made according to your request. If you want a wardrobe that will be according to very specific plans and dimensions, you may find that a bespoke design is exactly what you are looking for.
You may also purchase extra shelves if you still need some more space for your things and garments. This is where you can place garments that are folded and other things that you need to be organized. Shelves can be placed inside wardrobes for garments or for display cabinets for more space. There are shelving cabinets that can be purchase that have allotted space for additional shelves. You may find these from wardrobe shops around. Storage boxes can also be purchased in case you will need separate spaces for your things like jewelry, underwear or papers. These boxes can also be placed inside the wardrobe for better organization. With it, you would know where to get those things that are separated from your other things. This will keep you organized and your things will be properly sorted out. These are just simple wardrobe inserts that you may purchase separately to make your wardrobe even more useful for you. You will find these at department stores and shops that sell cabinets and wardrobes. When purchasing these, you need to make sure that there is still enough space for them in your cabinet or wardrobe. This way, you can make full use of the wardrobe for all of your things. So, assess your wardrobe and its available space so that you can purchase the right insert for you to make use of.
