Like everything else in life, there are those who were born to plan out bedrooms and those who would rather do anything else. You know which one you are: When you move into a new place, or when you need an extra bedroom for new children or visiting relatives, you either get all excited and start spending quality time with design magazines or you get grumpy and depressed and try every trick in the book to avoid the issue. Never fear! Its not as difficult as you think, and theres one aspect of the design thats as easy as it is exciting: Choosing the right wardrobe design for your particular bedroom. There are three main aspects you have to consider when choosing a wardrobe: Your personal taste, the physical space its fitting into, and what it will be used for.
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.
For those in the film industry, wardrobe refers to the costume or outfit an actor, performer or extra wears while on a TV or movie set. These outfits can be everyday clothing to stock costumes to those costumes made from scratch. When an actor auditions for a role they will fill out and complete a casting form with their personal information, body sizes and measurements. Upon the actor booking the role, this information is then sent to the wardrobe office/department and/or a phone call is made immediately to the actor to review or collect his/her particulars including measurements. The actor must have this information readily available even if it has been submitted at the audition/callback. A measurement sheet is needed by all actors or those going out for principal auditions.
The final aspect of wardrobe design is what the wardrobe will be used for: An active childs daily dressing routine? Storage of spare bedding and linens? Or will it stand empty until people visit? Knowing what youre going to put in the wardrobe will guide you in your wardrobe design decisions, and help you figure out whether something stock will work for you or if you need to have something custom-built. Dont discount the power of the wardrobe! It has a tremendous effect on the overall success of your room design. A wardrobe that doesnt match the rest of the room will stick out like a sore thumb and look awful. And a wardrobe that doesnt function well is a waste of valuable space - not to mention priceless storage. When tackling a wardrobe problem, take your time and work through these three steps thoughtfully to ensure you make the right choices.
