Our Story

We purchased the business back in 2010 when there were only about 1000 costumes in the shop. We quickly increased the amount of costumes and a couple of years later took over the premises next door to us which doubled the size of the shop. We now have approx. 4500 costumes and will continue to add to this regularly.

My husband Don, who until recently has been a busy musician, has been my amazing right hand man. Having the days mostly free, I have sent him on many trips all over Cape Town and surrounds for fabrics so that I can sit for hours and hours sewing new costumes! He is a very patient man and I could never have coped without him.

Kim is our only staff member in the shop at the moment (due to Covid 19) but a more dedicated and hardworking person you will not find. She will go out of her way to help our customers.

Our specialty is the personal service Madcaps gives to all the people who come through our doors. Whether just a hat or ten costumes are hired all are important. If we don’t have the exact costume, which does happen of course, we will do our best to find something similar or often completely different!

Lately the customer base for Madcaps is broadening. Visitors are coming from Athlone to Atlantis and everywhere in between. Even from Hermanus and Franschhoek. Madcaps serves most of the schools in the area from pre-school all the way up to Matriculants. When they are in the shop we have huge fun and plenty of laughter.

Madcaps mission is to grow and to continue giving the excellent service we have become known for. Our customers are generally booking for a party and we are of the opinion that their party should start at Madcaps.

All of the costumes at Madcaps are cleaned after every hire and checked for any maintenance required before they go back into the shop.
