Creating a cosplay is challenging enough as it is.
It takes time, effort, and practice to get the job done but when it finally is complete the feeling of stepping out to reveal the fruits of your labor is exhilarating! Then someone approaches with a question that stops many in their tracks, especially the unprepared: “May I take your picture?”
Having a few good poses up your sleeve always helps and if you’re drawing a blank the Japanese magazine Cosmode has you covered! Here are some posing tips and tricks generously shared by cosplayer Firecloak (aka May Guo) from the Cosmode magazine app in their February 2017 and April 2017 issues. The app is available via iOS (possibly for Android as well but this remains unconfirmed) so be sure to show your support for their magazine buying issues via their app!
