Movie pre-production for wardrobe can start about six weeks ahead of shooting. The director and/or producers are shown drawn artist conceptions, coloured and swatched with small pieces of costume for each character. These samplings offer an idea of what the proposed costumes/wardrobe will be worn by the actors. Instructions are given about the cut and fit of the costumes, alterations to existing stock, etc. Costumes built or made from scratch usually involve a costume designer. The designer researches the era or time period, shops for the materials, designs the ideas/concepts and puts together the pieces for the costumes. Costumes designed by designers are primarily Historical or period pieces, fantasy pieces and/or modern/futuristic.
The variety of wood colors, stains and finishes is just as broad in the antique wardrobe as it is in the new. Design of the antique wardrobe is mimicked in todays styles. Depending on the level of restoration, differentiating between a new and an antique wardrobe can be difficult. With the rising popularity of vintage and antique furniture, new wardrobes can be created to look like a fine antique. With paint, stain and even some carefully administered marring, the new wardrobe can take on the characteristics of an antique. Conversely, there are many antique pieces that have been completely restored to look brand new.
Wardrobes can be a small corner in the house or a room large enough for us to walk in and get ready there. The walk in wardrobe is large enough to walk inside to store clothes or other objects, on two or three sides. They may have lighting, mirrors, and flooring distinct from adjacent rooms. A wardrobe can comprise of multiple sections meant for keeping in various things. While one section can handle your cosmetics, the other can take care of your bags. The upper section is generally confined for jeans where as the lower one for tees and formal shirts. The most important factor when choosing the wardrobe is seeing its flexibility and the ability to store everything, from your vintage clothing to your impulsive buys or some random thing you picked up from the flea market. Every blouse, jumper and scarf should be in place.
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.
