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.
There are hundreds of sample wardrobes that you can choose from for your custom design, and you can easily find the style, color, and size of custom wardrobe that will fit in your room. Work with the designers to create your own wardrobe design using the measurements that you have taken and the various wardrobe samples that the designer can show you. Take into account the important factors like the doors, what type of storage space you need, and what will be stored. Sliding doors are perfect for rooms with limited space, while hinged doors will require room to swing outwards. Do you need hanging space, drawer space, or just shelf space? Will you be storing only clothes, or will you be storing personal items in your wardrobe as well? All of these factors will be important in the wardrobe design of your custom wardrobe. The last step to take is to settle on a price with the designer. The price will vary according to the type of wood that you use, the style and design of the wardrobe, and the type of wardrobe that you want. Once you have agreed on a price, sit back and let the wardrobe installation professional work on installing your custom wardrobe made from your own wardrobe design.
On set, there are wardrobe assistants that look after the actors. They make sure all wardrobe is put on correctly, there are no alteration problems or pieces missing and they make sure everything is in its right place and worn the right way. Each outfit the actor wears will be photographed for continuity purposes. Once an actor has changed into his wardrobe he will go to the wardrobe trailer for approval before heading on to set. To sum things up, wardrobe is an important piece of the giant movie puzzle. Costumes make the actors character come a live. They help the actor transform into his/her role. For the extras, they may be in the background, but in costume they feel connected to the TV or film. And the audience, we get to sit back and take it all in.
