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.
Extras are background performers that fill in the areas around the actors. Extras are asked to bring or supply their own wardrobe of three complete changes from head to toe including accessories. In extras holding, the performers show the wardrobe assistants their wardrobe choices. The assistants will then approve an outfit from the extras choices or suggest a new outfit by putting different items together. Once approved the extra is okay to step on the set. Sometimes extras have special requirements and will be booked on a production because they own a particular outfit such as a tuxedo, floor length gown, Halloween costume, sports uniform, etc. Extra employment hinges on the wardrobe an extra has in his/her closet. Extras supply their own wardrobe because its less hassle for the production. Its fast, easy, all clothing fits the first time and theres little cost to the production.
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.
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.
