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.
Choosing the colour is the best place to start. First, you need to establish if you would like just one colour, or something more funky, with more than one colour. Plain coloured wardrobes are obviously easier to find, both on and offline. They will also be a more practical buy, as a smooth, plain wooden wardrobe, or a crisp and clean white one, will go with almost all colours of bedding. Remember, if you choose a two-tone, or multicoloured childrens wardrobe, you will be limited in the colour of bedding you can choose. Perhaps its best to have the wardrobe, and other furniture, as the blank canvas, and to add splashes of colour with cushions, bedding and other goodies. Also remember, a pink wardrobe cant be handed down to your next child if its a boy, and vice versa.
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.
Most configurations of triple wardrobe look completely uniform on the outside. Although on the inside the unit, there will usually be the usual space to hang clothes behind two of the doors. This could be the first two doors, or the first and third door of your three door wardrobe. Behind the other door will usually be a set of shelves for you to fold and store away your other types of clothes. This space is fantastic for storing away clothes that are currently out of season, i.e. Spring / Summer clothes if it is Autumn / Winter and vice-versa. The wardrobe may be further accessorised; you can buy a 3 doors wardrobe with mirrors on one or more doors. If you need a vanity mirror in your room because you do not have space for a large enough mirror elsewhere, this accessory is nice to have. So that is something else to bear in mind.
