Group poses?

My friend and I are cosplaying Deidara and Sasori for our next convention. We each have individual poses, but I don't know what we should do when we pose together. I'd really appreciate some suggestions.

I don't know those characters, but:

Do you have any reference material, official artwork, screenshots of the two of them together? Use those as a starting point, then have the photographer help you adjust as necessary.

(sometimes people can't contort their bodies the same way as artwork... imagine that)

Tumblr and deviantart are good resources too

The two characters are from Naruto so here's some ideas for poses:

-Stand together next to each other, both facing front-forward
-Back-to-back, both looking at the camera and then another where they're both looking away
-Have one stand, the other kneel in-front, and then reverse positions
-If they're rivals, have them do fighting-poses against each other
-Do a close-up of the pair to showcase Deidara' mouth-hand and Sasori's contacts

Those are just some ideas.

Hope that helps.

Since these two have a strong relationship to begin with, it should be fun to have them interact in a way or another.
And if you're out of ideas, go for fanservice

I think feel is very important.maybe you should try several times, then you can find the right pose you need.

But don't go too romantic if the relationship is not romantic to begin with.
Sasori doesn't like Deidara that much. But he probably finds the idea of a human puppet interesting !

One of my favorite tropes, and Naruto is just full of it : http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...rsionPotential
