If you have a costume request for Intercon, please list:
Time Slot
Specific item OR
Costuming hint

If you have the following to lend and think it might fit me, I'd be obliged:
Any 1700s dress of relative classiness
Port Hidalgo
Saturday night

NOTES: If you're borrowing costuming from me, unless you are significant travel distance away from me, (like, over a 45 minute drive), then I expect you to make an effort to pick the costuming up at my house before the con. My luggage last year was ridiculous.

If a piece is being borrowed by more than one person, the person who needs it first must pick it up from my apartment in Somerville. Unless you're coming from really far away. If the piece is particularly small, I may make an exception and agree to pack it.

If you're borrowing something from me, I need you to return it as soon as your game is over, in case someone needs it for the next game.  If you're the last person borrowing a costume, I may ask you to return it to my house instead of at the con, because again, luggage. If you are returning it to my house, I expect it within a week.

If you can't work within those constraints, I may not be able to help you.

EDIT: Because it seems this wasn't clear: 

NON-LOCALS ARE EXEMPT FROM THE PICK-UP/DROP-OFF EXPECTATION. (I'm not shouting, I just want to draw your eyes to this first and foremost.)

If you live far away and want to request costuming, I will not make you pick up from or return to my house. I may not be able to bring the item you want, if it takes up a lot of room (like a large or oddly shaped prop that will not lie flat in my suitcase), but if you are requesting an item of clothing, or something that folds flat, I will bring it.
The pick up/drop off rule is for locals. Last year I packed a lot of clothing for people who lived in the Boston Metro area. If I had only packed stuff for the people who were far away, I would have had a lot more room in my suitcase.

I still need you to return the item to me directly after the game though, or at least before the next game period begins.

Dear Costume Fairy Godmama,

I have been very "good" this year and would like to make the following requests if you have them and/or are still available:

Game: Venezia
Time Slot: Friday evening
Specific item: a Renaissance girdle/belt if you have one, and/or your black & gold circlet/veil/snood thing? (Kate's wearing it in the Venezia pics)?

Thank you, oh Lovely One!

Hmmm. My dress is going to be red and black. So...which do you think would go better? I'm thinking the gold, because the contrast will be more striking.

So, I'm wearing this dress for a dinner cruise Saturday night (it should be in "Apple" as the color) and I'm wearing that with black elbow-length gloves and a black sash (makes it much more dramatic and striking and less like a bridesmaid's dress.)

If I get it in time, I'll be wearing this bodice over it, in black velvet and red brocade, along with black pearled velvet sleeves and the white satin chemise. So it'll be the Renaissance bodice over the poofy skirt because I think it'll look good and authenticity takes a back seat to awesome for me. If it looks stupid over the dress, I'll wear the matching velvet and brocade skirt instead.

Can you picture that? Think it'll look okay?

I kinda hate the slashed sleeves (at least as they appear on the site), so I went with the detachable pearled sleeves instead.

Out of curiosity, what is the white poofy shirt you wore for your Dragon costume made of? I've tried on all of my white shirts for my Hidalgo costume, and none of them seem quite right.

It doesn't say on the tag, it turns out.
But it's this shirt:

It's John's, I could ask him if you could borrow it if you want! It's a size Small, which is still quite big.

It looks great, but I feel bad asking to borrow it, since I live too far to pick it up, and I do already own white shirts. Is John coming to Intercon?

People who live too far away are an exception to the "must pick it up" rule. Don't worry about it.

John is not coming to Intercon. He doesn't LARP, really.

Well, if he is ok with it and if you have room, I'd love to borrow it, but if not, really, don't worry about it. Like I said, I have a few white shirts. Just let me know!
