This is really good advice and such....I find the problem is my cosplays the character's signature poses are in those 'don't go there' poses -.-

Gah! I'm so sorry. I should have checked this thread earlier than this, but it completely slipped my mind. Feel free to give me a good slap on the back of my head.

Unfortunately I don't. But other than the sitting poses, the guide works pretty well for both ladies and gentlemen...or so I hope.

Oh, I see. Well, that can be a bit of a problem... My tip would probably be to do the poses, but tone them down a bit. If the character's bending forward, don't bend forward quite as much and so on. Just make small discreet changes. Like I said, it doesn't take much to make a good photo go bad, so the reverse also stands true!

Wait... one question- what if the character's signature pose is physically impossible and entirely unrecognizable if you attempt it in any toned down version?

Well, just because the character has a signature pose doesn't automatically mean you HAVE to do it. You can always just look at them, or at the character's personality if you prefer, for inspiration to come up with poses of your own. ^^
