Fun Fact

Television shows, movies, and theater productions all rely on a wardrobe person to supply the outfits for the production. Sometimes this person is called a wardrobe coordinator, wardrobe assistant, or costume designer. Some productions are easier than others to find wardrobe for, especially if they're set in current times. But many productions take place in another era, and that's when the skills of a wardrobe person are really tested. He or she must find costumes that fit the period in which the production takes place. Then he or she must alter them to fit the actors and actresses. If costumes are not easily obtainable, the wardrobe coordinator must create the costumes from scratch. This is the ideal job for a skilled tailor or dressmaker with an interest in television, movies, and theater.
