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.
Aside from having the wardrobe as your main storage area for your things, you can actually get more from it by having these wardrobe inserts. These are additional parts that you can attach or place inside your wardrobe to create more space for your other things and stuffs. These are very helpful as you do not need to buy a new wardrobe in case all of your things did not fit in it. You can simply add in more features for your wardrobe so that it can even be more useful for you. You can purchase hanging rails that you may install inside your wardrobe. This will be used for those garments that are to be hung like formal wears, gowns, tuxedos and many more. Having this will create more space for those garments that are folded and are placed on the shelves. It can even have your formal wears maintained and prevent it from getting wrinkled. This is appropriate for tall wardrobes wherein you can still have enough space on the upper portion of the wardrobe. These are commonly seen in built-in wardrobes but you can buy separate rails if you still need some more for your wardrobe.
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.
