I know that I need a portfolio and resume, but what else do you usually bring?

Come completely prepared.
Bring a roller suitcase of shoes and outfits incase they want you to do a test shoot. Bring make-up and a hair straightener (you never know what could happen on your way to casting call!)
Bring food, you don't know how long it may take for it to be your turn, or how long you'll be waiting around to even be talked to.
Bring money. Always good for sticky situations.

Make sure you know all your measurements and have any past experience with you in hand.
It always looks professional to hand out cards if you have any too.

Goodluck!

This seems a little much.... your book and a couple of comp cards is a good start. Do your makeup (light day makeup) at home and bring powder, lipgloss etc to touch up. Don't bring a resume. You should not have to bring hair tools or a suitcase full of clothes... you don't even need that for a booking (with a few exceptions, but then they will be sure to let you know).

Just relax, be yourself and be on time if the casting is by appointment.

And bring a roller bed in case they want you to sleep over, and a pop corn popper too so you can snack on some thing, bring your dog too

DONT FOLLOW THAT RIDICULOUS ADVICE from up top.  You will look like a country bumpkin going to the big city.

Bring some pics - resume not so necessary

Dont bring a pen or check book and no $

don't sign anything or pay anything.  Girls of your type rarely work on an exclusive basis
