The Cave Is Closing

All good things must come to an end…

After much deliberation, The Costume Cave is closing. 

With the recent financial climate, running the Cave has become increasingly difficult. Like many, we’ve tried to be creative in overcoming challenges. But, it is time.

Our final sale  The Great Cave Finale! will commence on 

April 4th and run until May 4th 2024.

It would fill our hearts to see you all there.

Everything must go! So…

Bring on the party!

 Thank you to our valued customers, Te Aro CBD neighbours, our treasured Cave whānau/team – present and past. You all have made the Cave what it is.

We’ll miss the vibrancy you bring to our days. But, we take with us new friends, connections, stories about losing pants, and an eclectic lifetime’s worth of living vicariously (and not). We hope we have been of service over the past 33 years.

Please keep supporting the arts. All the parties, performances, charities and creative events make who we are.

Please keep supporting creative locals. Especially our friends Sharon at Creative Showoff and Karen at Totally Frocked

Due to the volume of enquiries we are unable to pull, hold or photograph items.

Please feel free to share with your networks.

Ngā mihi nui,

Kate RJ (owner), Kate S, Elvis, Shohana and Maddie x
