Stan Marsh (South park) posing help?

I've decided to cosplay Stan Marsh as a favour to a friend doing Kyle, but I have no idea how to pose for him if a random person wants a photo in a hallway.

The only cliche pose I could think of was the hand between brows, embarrassed look he does when his family embarrass him. Obviously I can't do this for every single photo, so does anyone have any ideas of what I could do?

Thank you.

An idea I had, which may get old since it's only one thing..
Would be to have a dead Kenny plush and have it be obviously dead, like bloody, head detached or something..And have signs that you hold up..Stan's sign would say "Oh my god they killed Kenny!!" and Kyle's would say "You bastards!!"

Or something like that..Kinda like how the Ace Attorney cosplayers have the Objection signs

The hands in pocket pose and the default pose which is a front dead still profile. Like the kitty avatar is doing. Or a dance pose from the beginning intro.

Yeah I had thought of the hands in pocket pose but my coat doesn't have pockets. I could use my jean pockets instead maybe.

Dance pose? I'll have a look as I'm not sure what you mean.

I'm not sure how I could transform that into a pose though for a photo in a hallway picture. A photoshoot would be a great idea though. =)

When you aren't sure what to do, think about his personality.. How would he pose?
If it helps, find a character on Google Image Search with a similar personality and see how they pose. It's construction paper, they don't do much in terms of overall movement. Make sure when you are posing to do BIG poses (don't have a dead arm, don't look stiff, ect.) Using the show for reference will only get you so far.
Good luck.

Thank you for the help. =)

Yeah I try to always do stuff with my hands like holding props or moving it in a way it looks like its doing something even if its not.

My problem is with Stan I am utterly clueless. He doesn't have a personality so much that I can think of...

I see you're a Kyle cosplayer! That's awesome!

Edit: I think I might use my hat and gloves as some kind of help. Fiddling with the gloves, holding the tip of the hay... something like that.
