Posing! Tips ~

Mon Apr 21, 2014, 10:16 AM

I did these instructions 2 years ago, but I still think they're kind of good :D I hope you like!

Posing is crucial for getting an awesome cosplay photo! You should be aware of the basics before you go on a photoshoot. At a convention people are going to want to take pictures of and with you, practice your posing and you'll like the pictures that pop up on facebook afterwards!

Note where there is a source of light, and capture it with your face.

Don’t just stand there! Twist your body a bit and it will come to live in pictures! If you just stand there your hips will look wider than if you twist your body! :3

Beware of your limbs when posing. An arm that’s just hanging there can easily look like a deadweight.

On the subject of arms it’s important to notice how awkward the “hands behind your back”-pose can look. It’s always difficult to know what to do with your arms and hands. If you have a prop it will come more natural (or if your character has a signature pose). Otherwise place one or both on your hips!

Push out your chest and look alert! It will do wonders for the photo!

Before spending all that time creating a cosplay, look at the reference and consider if you should make the skirt longer, or not show as much boob or stomach, etc. I think that it’s OK to change the design a little to suit your body better. Unless it’s for a competition, people aren’t going to have a reference for your character with them!

Take a walk in your apartment in full costume, try sitting down and jumping around for a bit. You might notice some serious flaws that you need to fix before convention day!

Did I fail to mention some tips that you love? Put them in the comments!
