Stylists' Wardrobe Kit and Survival Tips
So I need to submit a wishlist asap for this indie movie I'm working on for what I need as head of warddrobe. Thus far I've got:
clothes rack
hangers
pins
fabric glue
various needles and thread colors for minor repairs
bulldog clips

What else do I need? I've never done this before so I'm not sure what I would need. Please help!!

anything you can think of when you look at fashion editorials.
socks, gloves, hair accessories, ... i dont really know what they require you to do..
i just remember my stylist trainings and that there is literally no boundaries...except they tell you there are...
use ur imagination

duh! Thanks for the ironing board stuff. Yeah this is strictly stuff I need, not the clothing and accessories and stuff. Socks is also a good one leyla. I'm discussing budget tonight. It's uber indie so we'll see how it goes.

i don't understand...usually a stylist provides their own kit...you can charge them a rental fee per day...that would include what you stated...

the production company shouldd provide you with racks, hangers, a steamer and a place to change and/or store the wardrobe...

you will need-pins-i prefer safety pins, a blk marker, a sewing kit (including seam ripper, tapemeasure), double stick tape (try to get the kind they use to keep on toupes, otherwise go to an art store), shoe polish, a lint roller, tissue paper-to stuff shoes, shoulder pads-to stuff bras, or gel bra inserts (chicken cutlets), A clamps, scissors, various nude undergarments in M-camisole, bra (34b), slips, g- string...several prs of sheer hose-nude, blk...1 pk of hanes men's plain wht t-shirts sz M, 1 pr white socks men's and 1 pr women's, 1 pr dk men's dress socks,

that should cover the basics...you could also have a collection of mens watches and belts as well as a selection of women's jewelry...

thanks softie! Well because it's such a low budget movie I'm just meeting with the guy incharge and we're just sort of making our own kit? There is like one woman featured in the whole movie (not including extras) but I'm sure I'll need that stuff anyway.

you might not---it's to quickly tie back a coat or leather jkt or a belt...something that would be too bulky for pins...

but it's more for a photo ...since film is 360 degrees...things really need to fit...

Just thought, if it is a film then either a polaroid or digital camera for continuity shots.
