Posing with a wand?

Hi there! I'm working on a few different Hogwarts cosplays, and I was wondering if there was any way I could energetically and interestingly pose with a wand.

Seriously, I know it doesn't seem that hard, but I'm having a very, very hard time with it.

So if anyone has ideas or suggestions, would you let me know?
Thanks~

well take some poses from the movies, it just depends on what "spell" or emotion you want to display

Yeah, I've been re-watching the movies.
I just really want something dynamic, you know?
None of the movie poses really do it for me.

what character are you cosplaying as? and does it have to be a distace or up close and personal pose? a wand to the neck pose would be good if you had someone to pose with but its just depends on the chatacters perosnality

well if youre yet to see the last film the SEE IT!

i can show you some photos if you want, but you need to look at how they hold their wands. voldemort is my fav. he holds his with his hand out flat with his thimb pointing straight down between his 2 middle fingers. and harry holds his with his thumb pointing down the wand and his other fingers just regularly sitting there.

NNYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAA

I've got a small Flickr set of HP cosplayers, including several posing with wands:

One thing to remember - if you're point the wand at the photographer, you want it to be slightly off angle to the lens. If you point it straight on at the dead center of the lens, it'll turn into a tiny point with a big hand behind it, which means it effectively disappears.
