Perhaps one of the most stressful part of preparing for an open casting call is figuring out what to wear, because it`s not specific. Keep in mind that they will see who you are, so keep it simple.

o Keep it fitted. Choosing appropriate clothing will let casting directors to see what your body type and this will help them decide whether you are right for their casting company.
