There is nothing quite like the charm of an antique wardrobe. It whispers in the language of the past, telling a long and interesting story. The past is portrayed in a patina that defines the beauty and individuality of the piece. This is not to say that a new wardrobe is completely lacking in character and beauty. There are advantages to both new and antique wardrobes. The choice of an antique wardrobe versus a new one generally comes down to personal preference. But there are certain factors that can influence your decision.
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 large doors can have one of many characteristics such as the knots and gains in the wood producing a beautiful wardrobe door but for added functionality, it can be very common for a full length mirror to be build into one of the double doors. With a triple wardrobe, you usually find a similar mirror down the middle of the wardrobe with a single door either side and in total, giving the wardrobe its triple size definition. Double wardrobes when opened, have a large space for hanging clothing with a clothes rail spanning the full length of the wardrobe. Many people use this hanging rail for every day clothes, work clothes, hanging ties or even a shoe hanging rack which can store a pair of shoes away from the bottom of the wardrobe.
On the set of a movie there is always a wardrobe trailer as part of the circus. However, the actors or performers wardrobe is hung up in their trailer before they arrive for the days filming. All pieces are delivered to the performer along with underclothing, especially if the weather is cold. Actors place hot packs in their footwear, pockets and/or around their body and are given a cover up jacket. The jacket serves to conceal the wardrobe, keep the actor warm and protect the costume from the elements.
