Wardrobe Room

'How I Met Your Mother': Inside the Wardrobe Room (Photos)

Come Tuesday, we'll finally know the fate of Ted Mosby and his "one" when "How I Met Your Mother" wraps its epic nine-season run. Luckily, we'll always have memories of dates gone wrong (naked man), marriages that never were (Stella, anyone?) and one amazingly recognizable wardrobe full of slutty pumpkin suits, ponchos, red cowboy boots and a whole lot of Rag & Bone. To help us get over the fact that we will never again see a flashback of Robin Sparkles at the mall, Reiko Kurumada -- who has worked in the show's wardrobe department since day one but became the official costume designer at the end of season six -- takes us on a tour through her office and wardrobe room, pointing out the origins of said iconic cowboy boots ("Topanga Canyon"), where she likes to do her one-stop shopping ("Intermix") and why the show truly worked so well all these years ("genuine love between the cast and crew").
