How does costume design work?

A costume designer dressed characters in movies and television. Every character’s appearance, whether a well-worn t-shirt or an elaborate period dress, is carefully considered.

Costume designers consider a character’s style and the production’s overall aesthetic when creating an outfit. Even though costume design and fashion design have some similarities, costume designers have to consider the filmmaking process when designing their looks, like whether the garment can stand up to the rigors of filming, provide enough movement for actors, and show up well on camera.

Costume design and background actors

All wardrobes for production, including background actors, are overseen by costume designers. Therefore, your Details Blog often includes detailed wardrobe notes when Central Casting books you. As a result, these notes are written with the overall costume design of the production in mind, which is why you should read your details carefully and follow the instructions.

If you are booked as a high school teacher, each project will have a different idea based on period, location, color scheme, what principal actors are wearing, etc. The same outfit that worked for Never Has I Ever might not work for Euphoria. It’s up to you to help bring these scenes to life, so please pay attention to the wardrobe notes you’re given to help costume designers realize their vision.
