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.
As payment goes, actors get paid to participate in wardrobe fittings. They get paid for a 2 hour call, but it usually takes under an hour to complete. Sometimes an actor will have to participate in multiple wardrobe fittings especially if he/she is having their costume made for them. As the actor tries on different outfits, different combinations of outfits or ideas for original pieces a photo will be taken of the actor in each outfit. These photos are then sent to the director and/or producer(s) to get final approval. The director may select an outfit or outfits from these photos or ask the designer to come up with other options or suggestions.
There are no wrong answers to the question of what you want your wardrobe to look like. Traditional, modern, wood stain or pink - its up to you and the rest of the room. You can find a wardrobe in just about any style you might desire or have one custom-built. The key is to know what you want. Dont just pick something out of a catalogue based on price - take your time and think about what the rest of the furniture looks like, what colours will be on the walls, and what pleases your eye. Wardrobe design begins with the space the wardrobe will stand in. Wardrobes are not one-size-fits-all, and if your wardrobe is too big for the space you will know it every single time you step into the room (possibly because you will have to climb over something to get in there). Measure the room carefully and plot out where everything will be so you know where the wardrobe will stand, and thus the exact dimensions you have to work with. This also will inform your choice of sliding doors or swinging doors - do you have space for doors that swing open outward without hitting the bed?
Craigslist is a great site to check out, as there are thousands of classified ads that you can browse through to find an offer of someone trying to sell a wardrobe. You will need to go to the home of the person to check out the wardrobe, but you may find that it is one of the best ways to find quality wardrobes being sold at a cheap price. Keep an eye on the "For Sale" section in your local newspaper. People who are moving homes will often have a final sale to try to make as much money as they can from the various things in their home, and you may be able to find a good wardrobe for a low price if you can luck out on finding a family that is trying to sell their wardrobe as they are moving homes. If you buy a used wardrobe, you will likely need to invest some money in getting it fixed up. Most people will slowly damage or wear out their wardrobe over the years of use, and you will find that your cheap wardrobes may need some repair work done to it. However, the cost of the repairs will be minimal compared to the money you saved.
