When you paint your wargaming models, are you sometimes wearing pajamas?

Dagwood10 Jul 2024 11:37 a.m. PST


Royston Papworth10 Jul 2024 11:38 a.m. PST

Pyjama bottoms, yes. Wore them to my last job interview, so hell, why not?

Cerdic10 Jul 2024 12:33 p.m. PST

I don't have any pyjamas…

14Bore10 Jul 2024 1:06 p.m. PST

No, not that I couldn't just don't.

Personal logo 20thmaine Supporting Member of TMP10 Jul 2024 1:26 p.m. PST

Yeah, I have. Not often.

cavcrazy10 Jul 2024 1:30 p.m. PST

Sometimes, especially when I am having a hard time sleeping, I'll paint a horse or two, maybe a wagon, nothing too intricate.

Eumelus Supporting Member of TMP10 Jul 2024 1:31 p.m. PST

I once shot an elephant in my pajamas…

How it got into your pajamas you will never know.

Major Thom10 Jul 2024 2:40 p.m. PST

Yes, but then I would paint nekked if I could get away with it.

Grelber10 Jul 2024 4:14 p.m. PST

I have a dog to walk first thing in the morning and again at sunset, so yeah, sometimes after the evening walk while waiting for the weather report to come on television at 10:45. After the weather report, if I have something almost done, I might try to get it painted in a ten- or fifteen-minute session.


CAPTAIN BEEFHEART10 Jul 2024 4:15 p.m. PST

I paint buck naked with a rotting chicken on my head. Any one else is crazy!

Personal logo Flashman14 Supporting Member of TMP10 Jul 2024 5:12 p.m. PST

Don't own pajamas.

Grattan54 Supporting Member of TMP10 Jul 2024 6:07 p.m. PST

Can't say that I do. By the time I have sleep wear on I am too tired to paint.

Personal logo Yellow Admiral Supporting Member of TMP10 Jul 2024 6:22 p.m. PST

Any time I can get away with it, yes.

But I also drink whiskey in my pajamas and get dressed after lunch, so I'm probably not a great role model.

Perris070710 Jul 2024 6:26 p.m. PST

What are pajamas?

ccmatty Supporting Member of TMP10 Jul 2024 9:02 p.m. PST

Yep – sweats and a t-shirt…

Oberlindes Sol LIC Supporting Member of TMP10 Jul 2024 10:20 p.m. PST

No. I own pajamas and sometimes wear them, usually when I'm a houseguest or at a hotel or something.

If I'm staying at a game convention, I'm not painting in my hotel room, so no chance of wearing pajamas and painting there.

If I'm at home, I'm probably not wearing pajamas. I do sometimes sleep in a tshirt and I might decide to leave that on if my morning is going to involve painting. I think that's as close as I get to wearing pajamas while painting.

Martin Rapier11 Jul 2024 2:24 a.m. PST

No. I usually paint in the afternoon/evening when I'm fully dressed.

I haven't owned a set of pyjamas since the 1980s, I just have old T-shirts and jogging bottoms to slob around in.

The only exception is if I need to get some spray paint on first thing, so I'll get up to the garage to do spraying before I get dressed.

ZULUPAUL Supporting Member of TMP11 Jul 2024 2:53 a.m. PST

Nope, don't own any.

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP11 Jul 2024 3:35 a.m. PST

First, I would have to buy pajamas.

Bill, if you'd told me we were completely out of poll questions, I'd have sent you some. All you had to do was ask.

Frederick Supporting Member of TMP11 Jul 2024 6:09 a.m. PST

I am with Robert on this – as I also don't actually own any pyjamas

Choctaw11 Jul 2024 6:27 a.m. PST

No and I would also never wear a rotting chicken on my head.

Shagnasty Supporting Member of TMP11 Jul 2024 8:34 a.m. PST

Pajamas, I don't need no stinking pajamas!

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP11 Jul 2024 2:24 p.m. PST

Do I paint in my pyjamas? Of coursse, not! I break into other people's houses in the middle of the night and paint in their pyjamas, just like any other sane person …

The Last Conformist12 Jul 2024 3:03 a.m. PST

Coincidentally(?), I haven't owned a pyjamas since about when I painted my first miniatures around 1990.

BTCTerrainman Supporting Member of TMP12 Jul 2024 8:50 a.m. PST

No. I only wear my Pajamas to Walmart!
