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.
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.
The cost of antique wardrobes can be prohibitive. The expense of any restorative work performed is added into the price. The history of the piece may have significance; therefore, you are essentially buying a piece of history. An alternative to this would be to search flea markets for antique wardrobes and do the restoration work yourself. This allows you to create a wardrobe that is uniquely yours. However, this can be a very time-consuming task depending on the age, condition and size of the wardrobe. Purchasing an antique wardrobe is environmentally responsible. You are buying an existing piece and preserving our natural resources. There is a very large market currently for antique wardrobes. They combine the functionality of todays furniture with the character and beauty of history, while not taking anything from the environment.
Establishing your price is one of the first steps. Do you want to buy cheap, and replace the wardrobe in a few years time? Or would you rather invest into something that will last your child, maybe right into their teens? This is an individual thing, and there is no right or wrong. There are also plenty of cheap childrens wardrobes on the market, that look way more expensive than they actually are. Shop around, is the key! Whilst a wooden wardrobe for children will add a warming touch, there are many wardrobes made from other materials that have, for example, been finished in high gloss, for a funky and modern feel. Pay careful attention to the handles - metal handles on a white gloss wardrobe can be just the finishing touch, as can smooth, round wooden handles on a pine wardrobe. This will obviously be dependent on the size of the room. To squeeze more storage space out of your wardrobe, you may want to consider buying a childrens wardrobe that has storage drawers as well. Also look at the hanging space internally - are there two rails, or one?
