    how about a white canvas apron

    and nothing else

    except maybe a few bulls-eye tattoos

    of where you'd like to get hit.

    Matching shoes and hand bag are optional.

    Actually I think it would be more fun

    if you dressed in a Big Bird costume

    and goggles with little wind shield wipers

    this way you could see better who you be

    shooting back.

    You don't need armor. The hits don't hurt that much.

    Some fields will let you rent some overalls. But most people just wear whatever is casual, comfortable, and whatever they don't mind getting dirty. Paintballs are water-soluble, but that doesn't mean they won't stain. I often notice grease stains that are left over from paintball hits that only come out after multiple washings, if at all.

    Dress weather-appropriate. If it's hot enough for a short sleeve, wear a short sleeve. But most people wear something long sleeve since welts look worse (and sometimes feel worse) on bare skin.

    I personaly have a banana costume I like to wear. But if you want to be plain and boring just go in jeans and a t-shirt. Mabe even a jacket if you have a really low pain threshold.

    multiple long sleeve layers. cover up any skin you don't want getting hit by a paintball going 300 feet per second. and a cup (trust me).
