Just that. My DS has to dress up in a science or non-fiction based outfit and I'm stumped. Need ideas please! Preferably cheap and not requiring any skill.I'm not good at this at the best of times but really I can't think of anything except for a doctor and where would I get a cheap white coat?!
Albert Einstein? Is that too obvious? He obviously wrote a book about his theory of relativity...called Relativity. Anyway, could buy a blonde wig and hairspray it to fuck to make it stick up all crazily, and get a grey/ old-looking mustache? DS can wear school trousers, shirt and tie?
I ordered wigs online from a costume shop for Halloween for less than a fiver, btw. If you order today should hopefully arrive before Thursday.
Just have him wear jeans etc.Scientists are "normal" people.
Jumper and jeans - Brian Cox.
This seems strange to me. Of all the fantastic fictional characters, your dc have to dress up as non-fictional characters
Carl Sagan? He wears a roll-neck top and a blazer in one of his photos. Could you do DS hair in kind of a 70's side part?
Large/adult white shirt instead of white lab coat?
Non-fiction based would suggest historical characters are okay, or does it have to be specifically science-based? So maybe a Roman toga? Or something drapy and one of them triangular-ruler whatsits and claim it's Pythagorus?
Gah - as if WBD isn't bad enough...Professor Branestawm?
