Ask the photographer if you can actually move, as the photo is taken. This can make action poses look so much more realistic. The long hair will take different shape, as will the costume. You can look away, and turn your head suddenly, to make the hair move, or flip it with with your hands, and quickly strike a pose, before your hair falls completely. Be careful how the skirt moves, so you don't reveal too much.
Do some poses, without looking at the camera. If you are using a weapon, look in the direction you are aiming it.
Use the environment to your advantage. If there is a tree nearby, you can place your hands on in it. You can hide behind it, or just be relaxing against it. Sit on a rock or some stairs, etc.
