“He was almost wholly without sophistication and wholly without worldliness . . . There was always with him a wonderful purity at once childlike and profoundly stubborn.”
The Albert Einstein fancy dress costume makes for a great fancy dress party look along the absent minded professor theme. It’s great for any theme whether that be a gathering with a bunch of science students or you can even twist it a bit to fit in to a Back to the Future fancy dress look.
Einstein lived from 1879 to 1955 so this fancy dress idea can span a lot of different periods. It can fit in with a 50s fancy dress theme, and in that case you might want to go for the nuclear angle as Einstein was one of those responsible for the Manhattan project to develop nuclear technology. You could also go for a young Einstein fancy dress idea with him in the earlier part of the century. He notably won the Nobel prize for physics in 1921 so he could certainly fit in to a 20s fancy dress theme.
Einstein was originally German but settled in the US and became a citizen in the 40s. So when you are going for the Einstein fancy dress look you should try for the germanic accent. So go for pronouncing the letter w as v, etc. The video below gives a real example of Einstein speaking so you can model your costumes accent on it.
