Homemade Albert Einstein Costume
Einstein's famous formula is the equivalence of mass and energy. (einstein´s formel image by Carsten Meyer from Fotolia.com)

Albert Einstein is one of the most famous scientists of the modern age. His theories have revolutionised the way that space, time and physics are perceived. He also had a very recognisable appearance because of his wild hair and thick moustache. An Albert Einstein costume is an easy one to make, mostly out of clothes you can find at home or at a thrift store.

  1. 1

    Put on a rumpled pair of slacks and a sweater. If you want, you can also add a white lab coat over the sweater.

  2. 2

    Put on a wild white-grey wig. There are many specific Einstein wigs available for purchase, but as long as the hair is the right colour and slightly shaggy, any wig will work.

  3. 3

    Apply a coat of spirit gum adhesive to your upper lip. Follow the directions on the product for application.

  4. 4

    Tap the spirit gum with your finger until it gets tacky.

  5. 5

    Press a fake moustache into the spirit gum to adhere it. The moustache should be bushy and white-grey in colour.

Tips and warnings

  • Speak with a German accent to finish your character.
  • Keep the bottle of spirit gum in your pocket. The moustache will occasionally come loose and need to be reattached.
  • Remove the spirit gum with rubbing alcohol.
