6 sassy costumes for math and science nerds


All right, so we’re not sure “sassy” is really the word to use when it comes to unveiling your inner geek on Halloween, but throw in a little confidence and swagger or swing while you sport one of these costumes suggested by Mollie Bloudoff-Indelicato at Scientific American and perhaps you’ll be a first.

PUMPKIN “PI”: (above)

It isn’t March, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the wonders of pi. For an autumnal twist, wear an orange T-shirt emblazoned with the pi symbol. Top it off with a “pi crust” headband. If you can rattle off the first 300 digits of this mathematical mainstay, all the better.



Dress to (conceivably) kill this Halloween. Recreate Erwin Schrödinger’s infamous thought experiment with a simple box, some face paint and cardboard cutout cat ears. Carry a bottle of “poison” marked “XXX” to tie the look together. With this costume, you’ll simultaneously be the life and death of the party.

Crazy for math and science.
