The Academy Awards rewards designers. Best Costume Design is the category for costume designers and it has ran from 1948 to present. For this category costumes are made or created by the designer for all the characters/performers in the film. The designers team can consist of tailors, seamstresses, appliquers, dyers, cutters, breakers-down (they make the items look worn), boot makers, hat makers, jewellery makers, etc. The winner of the 82nd Academy Awards for Costume Design was Sandy Powell for The Young Victoria.
One concern that most people have is over the cost of these wardrobes. Getting a custom design wardrobe for your bedroom can be incredibly expensive, and a bespoke design is out of the question. Cheap wardrobes are not easy to find, especially if you want to find a cheap wardrobe that is sturdy, strong, and made out of quality wood. One type of cheap wardrobes is made using a certain type of wood that is prefabricated. The wood used for these cheap wardrobes tends to be weaker, and you will find that these cheap options may be too cheap if you are looking to store a lot of items. This type of cheap wardrobe can usually be found in any office furniture store, as they usually sell them as a solution for setting up an office at a low price.
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.
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.
