In a scene I'm writing I've got two characters one in pajamas the other topless. One bare shoulder winds up brushing a pajama-ed shoulder. Thats how I wrote it pajama-ed. Technically not a word. The scene is jumped into but I suppose I could have explained the clothing situation to avoid this. In fact the scene may not even make it into the story but it got me to thinking - can a writer successfully turn a noun into a modifier? or does the reader smirk and think the writer is being too 'clever'. Ironically, I did it to avoid an extra sentence not really to be experimental. Jude leaned over untill his bare shoulder brushed Alice’s pajama-ed shoulder. I suppose I could've just said Jude leaned over untill his bare shoulder brushed Alice's pajama clad shoulder.
