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.
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.
Wardrobes span back many years and have come a long way in both their design, size and build quality. We all remember back when we were younger, of our parents having a significant piece of furniture in the bedroom and that being their wardrobe. For many families a double wardrobe in each bedroom is sufficient which means the double wardrobe is the most popular size of wardrobe. Nomatter what manufacturer has designed and built the wardrobe, each make all stems from the same basic qualifications which give a wardrobe its characteristics. The first being the large wide double doors which have a handle or latch to open the door. With many wardrobes, pine is used to build these pieces of furniture as this wood usually weights less than oak and is cheaper to due to this fast growing quality.
Productions give the costume designer/wardrobe department a budget. For everyday clothing bought from stores, but not selected by the director for the performers, will be returned to the various stores for refund. Wardrobe warehouses boast rows and rows ceiling high of costumes ready to be rented for specific period pieces. Costume stock are pulled from their racks and shelves ready to clothe the actors. These warehouses also have boxes and boxes and boxes of accessories as well. From all the different types and sizes of footwear, hats, gloves, jewellery to masks, head-gear, underwear or other uncommon specialty items such as army fatigues, peasant rags or zombie duds, etc.
