The Cave is a costume and clothing hire service packed with choice. We’ve been helping film, theatre, school and event communities for over 30 years.

We’re all about continuing stories, creating new ones and being a safe space for expression and fun, whilst offering a resource that helps reduce our collective clothing waste through repair and reuse.

With humanity’s ever evolving ideas, eclectic shapes, sizes and budgets we’ve hoarded…umm…collected thousands of treasures for you to mix and match. Every piece is remarkable, just like you.

Items are individually priced and we cap your hire at $75 per person per outfit. Pop in to the shop to create your own look, or ask our creative whānau to give you a hand.

We’re just a short stroll from Wellington CBD, with handy parking on Blair and Allen Streets. Sadly, there’s no wheel chair access for our building. If you need assistance, please email or call us as we’re more than happy to help.

We love what we do, and hope to see you soon!
