Edward Elric’s Alchemy Notebook

Edward Elric | Photographer

In Fullmetal Alchemist we see that Ed and some other alchemists keep track of their research in travel-sized notebooks.  Ed quotes the chemical makeup of the human body from his book, and it makes additional appearances periodically throughout the manga, in particular while taking notes on the Philosopher’s Stone, the Homunculi, and the Truth.  (To protect his research, Ed uses a private code that looks like travelogues.  Alphonse claims he cannot read Ed’s notes because of this.)

I decided to make my own copy of Edward’s journal for my cosplay of Edward Elric at Anime USA.  While it’s still a work in progress, most of the most important pages have been transcribed in - including the Periodic Table of Elements as it appeared in 1906, the human transmutation circle + ingredient list, the Law of Equivalent Exchange, and Ed teaching himself to write left-handed after the loss of his right arm.

I am currently offering to make partial copies of this notebook on commission (Click here for more information).

Bonus help from Al:

So, um…. I made a full version of Dan’s ‘terrible Eurovision song contest thing’ from Phil’s new anime cosplay video. Don’t ask me what I was thinking, I have no idea. It’s a little bit out of time in some places because Windows Movie Maker is a bitch, but I’m proud of it. Click ‘keep reading’ for lyrics~

YOOOO I have a list of cosplays I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, but screw them all because THE DREAM BOAT. Still gotta do the accessories, but it’s coming along!



Thaaaank you for the kind words my lovely schatzis! And the messages! And ahh…. I’ll get back to you eventually. I’ll try to get by for the next few days and then get back on track and share something else than ugly cosplay pictures.

Well. Whoever cares what I was up to, I did another cosplay. Sadly I have never seen a Gin Akutagawa cosplayer so I did just that. Froze my ass off for cute Gin x Higuchi pictures. Other than that, incredibly comfortable and(!) you can’t see my mouth, so I can scowl the hell out of people~
Will definitely wear her for the next con.

Where you ever really bad at cosplay and had build your way up to become a pro at it

yes believe me, I started out with nothing. I didn’t have any cosplay friends who could have taught me how to do stuff. I never used a sewing machine before and I had absolutely no clue how to do makeup. I even had to ask my friend how to use certain makeup products because I never used them before. all I did was to sit down and try things out myself. I made several versions of certain cosplays and cosplay props because I didn’t know what materials to use. I failed a dozen times, figured out what I did wrong and tried again. it’s just important that you don’t give up. my first cosplays looked horrible but I didn’t care because I did what I could and I had just as much fun wearing them as I do now. 

we need more urban fantasy stories about supernatural beings embracing fiction about their kind without sneering how humans got everything wrong.

Like a wizard who is actually a Harry Potter fan, yeah they know that Jk rowling got magic wrong ( they dont use wands) but by god they really did dig the idea of Quiddicth as a sport but they have the means to renact it in real life, by enchanting brooms and a bunch of balls. And they managed to gather to create a team with their friends, Theirs is the Flying Potters and they are going to compete against the Irish Bludgers next Sunday.

Or a werewolf who plays world of warcraft and sees as opportunity to cosplay as their worgen character.

I think they did that in What We Do in the Shadows, when it was mentioned that one of the vampires dressed up as Blade for Halloween.
