Requiring level 42 Construction and 50,000 gold to build, the costume room exists to store armour sets and some clothes, instead of having the items take up space in their banks. The bank rework taster provided players with the ability to access the costume room via the banking interface. If a bank PIN has been set, all furniture requires the PIN to be able to view, add, or remove items. Only the owner of the house may add or remove items from the costume room, though visitors may view the collections. A costume room has one door, and one costume room may be built in a player-owned house.
The costume room cannot be removed unless all items in all pieces of furniture have been removed first. Furniture which store items can only be removed from the room if they are empty. Also, if you wish to re-locate your costume room to another location in your home, you may do so by simply trying to build another costume room (in the location you wish for it to be moved). You will be prompted with a message asking if you would like to move your current costume room to that location. It will charge you the original cost of a costume room to re-locate it.
All items can be made as a flatpack. Thus, a better piece of storage furniture that requires a Construction level greater than the player's level to build can be bought from the Grand Exchange or from other players. Players can then build (install) the flatpack version of the furniture in their house even though they do not have the required level needed to create the furniture from raw materials.
Treasure chests are used to store Treasure trail rewards, either bought or discovered by players themselves. However only certain rewards may be stored, and in most cases, a complete set is required.

Costume boxes (or Fancy dress boxes) are used to store various cosmetic outfits including rewards from certain random events and certain quest items. However, to store these costumes and fancy dresses, a complete set needs to be obtained. Random event sets are obtained by completing the random events several times or by buying them in the fancy dress shop in Varrock.

Complete costume room
To build all the highest-level pieces of furniture will take 9 mahogany planks, 1 marble block and 1 magic stone. This has a total cost of 1,306,349 coins.
Many players used to utilize the costume room as a "hack-insurance" - something to fall back on if their account was hijacked temporarily and their items stolen. Assuming that the interlopers did not check the costume room (and the Miscellania and Etceteria kingdom management treasury), the player may have had something to fall back on even after their bank was emptied. However, after the bank rework taster the costume room is accessible from the banking interface.
