Sakura Haruno poses?
Right, last time I cosplayed as Konan, and because I was
1. Being lazy
2. Being selfish and didn't follow advice
3. Thought "who would want to take a pic with my fail cosplay"
I didn't have ANY poses whatsoever prepared, and I ended up with the same 1 pose for 20 pictures!

Now I will learn from my mistakes, and get advice on some poses for my next cosplay of Haruno Sakura from Naruto Shippuden

I always made my own costumes and I spend a considerable amount of time looking at other cosplayers and seeing what they use to make the costumes while at the same time I pay attention to what poses they use, consider what works well and looking at fanart and official artwork/screenshots may help too. Of course there is the series too. If there are poses you like then make a snapshot of them and use them as references. Practice in front of a mirror and perhaps ask a friend to do a practice photoshoot and see what works

Another thing Id say about posing is never stand there with your arms on your sides. No matter how good the costume is, it never looks right. You are always best off striking a cool pose! Turning slightly sideways with a hand on your hip can be a good pose if you are really stuck There is a number of cool tips and tutorials online that will help alot!

Of course the absolute basic of this is knowing the character!

Shippuden Sakura is very confident, so remember to keep your head high and chin up! (Unless she's thinking about Sasuke... in which case aim for shy and bashful, look up from underneath your lashes and hold a hand to your face, like so: http://www.fanpop.com/clubs/narusaku-vs-naruhina/articles/81296/pics/3 )

Typical Sakura poses would include standing tall, feet apart, and pulling on the edge of her right glove with her left hand, looking badass (as shown in this picture: http://static1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100610202750/naruto/images/0/0f/Sakura_Haruno_Shipp%C5%ABden.png )
Another typical pose would be pulling back your fist, ready to punch the living daylights out of someone.

Hope this helps!

If you've got the room, the pose where she's crouched down with one fist slamming into the ground is always a great one.

Make sure you practice in front of a mirror first, if you can. That'll give you an idea of how it looks, if you need to be aware of the angles of your feet, etc.
