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.
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.
Evaluating the space will allow you to know what type of wardrobe you want, whether fitted, built in, walk in, or free standing. Once you have determined the type of wardrobe you desire, you will then need to take the measurements for your wardrobe design. You will need to measure the height, the width, and the depth of the space for your wardrobe, and these will need to be written down on a paper. Make sure to account for the space around the wardrobe, as well as the any incline of the roof. If you are an architect or an artist, you can easily draw up the plans for your own website. If not, you can simply draw a basic sketch with the measurements and rough layout of your wardrobe to take to a wardrobe designer. These designers will then help you draw up a clearer wardrobe design, which they will then take to their wardrobe design books.
The craftsmanship of an antique wardrobe may exceed that of todays manufactured versions. A centuries old wardrobe is a statement to the extra care and skill that went into the making of it. Much of todays mass-produced furniture is unable to match the standards of craftsmanship that were employed to produce the handmade item. However, with the advancements in furniture manufacturing, the quality of mass-produced furniture is quite good. The style choices and storage flexibility of new and antique wardrobes is equally extensive. Some of the more elaborate wardrobes of the Victorian era are reproduced today. The simple lines and styling of the Shaker style wardrobe is a popular option in todays furniture market.
