The Academy Awards rewards designers. Best Costume Design is the category for costume designers and it has ran from 1948 to present. For this category costumes are made or created by the designer for all the characters/performers in the film. The designers team can consist of tailors, seamstresses, appliquers, dyers, cutters, breakers-down (they make the items look worn), boot makers, hat makers, jewellery makers, etc. The winner of the 82nd Academy Awards for Costume Design was Sandy Powell for The Young Victoria.
DIY wardrobes tend to be a good deal cheaper than wardrobes installed by professionals. One of the reasons for this is that most DIY wardrobes are made using lower quality wood than the costlier custom built wardrobes are. The wood will still be good quality, but you may find that storing your rock collection in your DIY built wardrobe is not the wisest idea. You will also save a good deal of money if you can do the installation yourself rather than having to call in a professional. Getting the installation company to get the job done can often be costly, which is why so many DIYers around the country love to do things on their own. If you have the necessary skills to do the project yourself, you should definitely consider it.
The variety of wood colors, stains and finishes is just as broad in the antique wardrobe as it is in the new. Design of the antique wardrobe is mimicked in todays styles. Depending on the level of restoration, differentiating between a new and an antique wardrobe can be difficult. With the rising popularity of vintage and antique furniture, new wardrobes can be created to look like a fine antique. With paint, stain and even some carefully administered marring, the new wardrobe can take on the characteristics of an antique. Conversely, there are many antique pieces that have been completely restored to look brand new.
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.
