- If it were me, I'd take one last shot at calmly and professionally explaining
to "management" your concerns about costume stock being damaged, destroyed or
going missing. If you put it in the framework of the costumes as a valuable
investment which is being lost, maybe they might appreciate that. It's a long
shot, as it sounds like they don't really value their stock, but at least
you'll know that you tried your best. I'm sorry - I appreciate how frustrating
that must be for you!

After explaining that, if they don't seem interested why don't you ask
if you could rescue them and care for them. Maybe even offer a token
amount "so you can purchase your own supplies in the future." They
might be willing to let you take them and if you did so with their
knowledge no one should mind.
