View Full Version : Posing with a parasol

Hi, I recently got a small parasol to pose with. As a male character, I was wondering what kind of artistic/elegant yet still masculine poses I can do. Pictures would be very much appreciated. Keep in mind that the handle is relatively short. Here's a reference pic.

Parasols are so much fun^^. If you want to still look masculine, I suggest holding it at more of a sideways angle (e.g., horizontally off one side, dangling from your hand with the design facing the camera...), and closed over your shoulder (think of holding it like Cloud carries his sword), and on occasion sitting on the ground with it (that one kind of depends on the character). Basically, not the standard two-handed hold right over a shoulder.

Parasols can be held like a weapon.

I appreciate the tips!

In addition, I was wondering if anyone has any pictures of cosplayers holding parasols? Male characters preferred, or females as long as it's not the typical lolita-holding-parasol shot.

Thanks again ^_^;
