Dimitris Papadopoulos ( Dimitris Papadopoulos Photography ), Cosplayers//GR’s established mega Greek Cosplay Photographer and Cosplayer, talks!


2nd in quantity of work Greek Cosplay Photographer! 7th in number of Cosplays Greek Cosplayer! Dimitris Papadopoulos ( Dimitris Papadopoulos Photography ), the legendary core member of Cosplayers//GR!


MAXIMUM, HIS DAILY REALITY !


Who doesn’t know him! Dimitris Papadopoulos, also known as Dimitris Papadopoulos Photography! One of the 2 main members of Cosplayers//GR! We meet him at almost all Cosplay events in Athens, at some big ones in Thessaloniki, but in the past also in Korinthos and Kavala, not excluding conventions abroad!

6 whole years! That’s how long his journey as a photographer in the Greek Cosplay scene lasted! Starting his activities as a photographer on February 22, 2014 at Kawaii Gentleman Fox House of Mask, he stops his activities in early 2020, along with the suspension of events due to the pandemic and the subsequent turn of Cosplayers//GR to online activities exclusively! Having fully covered 88 events that included Cosplays in 4 cities and a total of over 2750 Cosplays in Greece ( but also over 300 Cosplays abroad ), he holds the 2nd place in terms of quantity of work in Greece too! 43 external Cosplay photoshoots he performed in Greece are added to this total, as well as the creation of some themed reenactment videos with Cosplays!

Photographing and videoshooting Cosplays and Cosplay events isn’t his only feature, since he is a Cosplayer himself! And not just any Cosplayer! Starting his involvement with Cosplay in 2013, he continues today as one of the Top 10 Greek Cosplayers in terms of quantity, having reached 71 Cosplays at the moment, thus occupying the 7th place in quantity in Greece!

His activities include endless “firsts” in the Cosplay scene which are synonymous with those of Cosplayers//GR, which he’s a core member of since April 27, 2015, and under which he performed his work as a Cosplay photographer and more! Due to their extent, we refer you to the first 2 sections of our older article, where they are listed in detail, right here!

As a core member of Cosplayers//GR, like all its members, current and past ones, he accomplished the unique achievement of almost 100% full coverage of all Cosplay events and their Cosplays, in his hometown, Athens ( and not only ), with hundreds of photos and many videos per event, as well as the noting down all present Cosplays for the scene’s official statistics! Respectively, he participated as a core photographer at Cosplayers//GR‘s big mass outdoor photoshoots in Athens and Thessaloniki, while at the same time taking up part of the team’s cosplay booth’s multiple responsibilities at many Conventions! Respectively, he performed and still performs administrator duties at Cosplayers//GR‘s many social media, as well as whatever other obligations that includes!

Let’s talk to him about everything in detail!

PHOTOSHOOTING IN COSPLAY !


1) Tell us a few words about yourself! What do we need to know about you?

I’m Dimitris and I’m from Athens. I’m into Cosplay, photography and videogames. I’ve studied general journalism and attended marketing seminars. However, I don’t deal that much with journalism, besides photography, regardless of whether both can be combined together.

I don’t like talking about myself, but my actions and behavior towards my friends and colleagues show who I am, so they get the final say.

2) When and how did you start your engagement with photography? How did you acquire your knowledge on photography and what kind of photography do you do?

I’ve always dealt with photography as an amateur more or less, as we all do, I believe. I mean, we all had or have a mobile that we use to capture a beautiful moment or a trip. I’ve used a mobile ( technologically an old one ) and even a Polaroid ( instant camera ). In other words, I was an average camera user.

When I started getting into it more professionally, I was self-taught at first . But some time later, my partner, Panagiotis Pagonidis ( Cassiel Cosplay Photography ), taught me more about taking photos. The kind of ( serious ) photography I do has always been related to Cosplay.

3) Do you consider your engagement with photography to be a hobby or something more serious? How does this determine the way you photograph?

I consider photography to be a hobby. But I would also like to work professionally at some point regardless of topic, besides Cosplay. The fact that I consider this occupation as a hobby, doesn’t mean however, that I don’t show the professionalism required, and that’s because I’m a perfectionist, if nothing else. So, obviously I’m trying to get the perfect shot as much as possible.

4) What was the reason that pushed you to specifically get into Cosplays photography? What was your first contact with the subject? How do you think it differs from other photography subjects?

I was pushed by Cosplay itself, because I like it very much as a hobby. To immortalize so many incredible creations and every memory in general, is simply magical and fantastic.

I got into photography on February 22, 2014, when I decided to go to a Cosplay party ( organized by Kawaii Gentleman Fox, where I later became the group’s official photographer ). I appeared in Cosplay of course, together with my escort, and I covered the party, without anyone asking me to do that. The difference from other photography subjects, is that you shoot something new every time, which makes it incredibly artistic, especially if there’s going to be editing involved on each photo later.

5) When and how did you become a core member of Cosplayers//GR, the Greek Cosplay community? What duties did you have and do you have within the team on a physical level ( at third party events and group events / photography ), but also online?

I became a core member of Cosplayers//GR, on April 27, 2015, shortly after the end of Comicdom Con Athens 2015.

After a joint consultation of the team’s other members, and after the ( voluntary ) work I had offered towards the Greek Cosplay community until then, meaning  the coverage of all Cosplay events of course, they gave me the honor of proposing to me to join the team. Of course I accepted and an official announcement was made at our FB Group, since it was and is the community itself. My duties were the full coverage of each event through photos and at least one general content video, of course to photograph and videoshoot each Cosplayer present, but also to note them down on list for the community’s official statistics that we keep. During conventions, where we were present with our own Booth, I was taking on tasks related to its content. At the large outdoor Cosplay photoshoots our team organized at conventions in Thessaloniki, I was one of our team’s main photographers. Regarding the online aspect, I was giving my strong support with likes / comments / shares, to and from each Cosplayer, as well as informing the community about anything related to Cosplay in Greece, on our media ( Facebook, Twitter and Instagram ). Now, we are focusing on the online aspect, which we expanded dramatically, leaving the physical aspect related to events behind us.

6) What kind of characters, sources or types of photography did you prefer in Cosplay photography? Were these choices based on personal interests, and if so, when did you get in contact with each of them? What are your favorite Cosplay characters you’ve shoot so far?

I usually choose to photograph evil characters, although not always. As long as I like a character very much and I want to see him live, I will photograph him. My main source, however, is Resident Evil. We are talking about video game characters, so yes, they are based on personal interests. My most beloved characters I’ve shot are Carla Radames from Resident Evil 6, Alex Wesker from Resident Evil Revelations 2 and Sherry Birkin from Resident Evil 6.

7) What equipment did you use per occasion when shooting Cosplays and how important is it in the end result? How important do you think is the corresponding knowledge on photo editing in the end result?

I started with a Compact digital camera, Samsung ST66 Zoom Lens (5x) 4.5-22.5 mm, f / 1: 2.5-6.3, 25 mm, 16.1 megapixels. With this specific camera I covered my first event but also shot my first ( official ) Cosplay by myself!

Almost 1 year later, I finally decided to upgrade my equipment, getting a Nikon D3300 AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55 mm DSLR camera, f / 3.5-5.6 G VR II, 24.2 megapixels. The result left me quite satisfied. Of course, the equipment is very important in the final result, although it depends of course on what someone wants. Also, photo editing knowledge is something very important, since those two ( shooting and editing ) are combined, so it’s of the utmost importance if you want to achieve a perfect and spectacular result.

8) How did you end up covering Cosplay events regularly and what experiences did you get from it after all that time?

Since I like Cosplay and photography that much, it wasn’t that difficult deciding to attend every event and cover it, since I already had free time. The experiences I gained were quite pleasant, as I got to know more and more new people.

9) In addition to photography, you were also involved in videoshooting at events and photoshoots. What shooting pattern did you follow in your videos and what content did they include?

It depends on the occasion, but also on the topic. The event videos had usually the pattern of being shot from bottom to top or vice versa ( to capture a Cosplayer, whether he moved or not ) from the middle and up using a fixed shot ( with or without the Cosplayer moving ) and from right to left or vice versa, in terms of shooting booths. Usually the videos of Cosplays I shoot ( whether I do the Cosplay myself or someone else ) are indicative with an average duration of 1 minute. However, I’ve also done faithful representations, but also short films, such as the movie “A Female J’avo”, an original idea based on the beloved Resident Evil 6.

10) You have shoot Cosplays in Athens, as well as Thessaloniki, Greece. Was there any difference that made an impression on you between the two cities related to Cosplays and related events?

Yes, the biggest difference that impressed me back then ( and at the same time excited me, because I was seeing something different ), before we stopped doing them, was the huge outdoor Cosplay photoshoot at HANTH Park and the big Cosplay parade along the beach that followed, both of which we organized as Cosplayers//GR, in the context of the huge The Comic Con in Thessaloniki, during its 3rd day. As for Cosplays, there have been only a few times where I would see some of them only in one city, since most active Cosplayers in the scene travel from one city to another. In general, however, in terms of Cosplays, but also in terms of events between these two cities, I can say that they are on equal footing, which is quite a high level.

11) Has the theme and size of an event ever affected your decision to cover it? What would you say were your favorite events so far?

No, never, since as an administrator and photographer of the Cosplay community, I was obliged to attend each event to cover it in full. But even if I didn’t have to, I would still attend any event for the purpose of enjoyment, whether I would cover it, do Cosplay or nothing at all! The same way I’ll be able to enjoy every event entirely as a Cosplayer only, now that the coverage of events has been suspended on our team’s side.

My favorite events are AthensCon in Athens, The Comic Con in Thessaloniki and Stranger Things Party ( formerly Zombie Thriller Party ) in Athens.

12) What led you to drop the ongoing coverage of Cosplays events in the end?

With the launch of our, one of its kind, website, the focus of our team shifted towards online activity, leaving the physical aspect we performed in the context of all existing events behind us, along with any related actions. After so many years of uninterrupted coverage of hundreds of events by us, we had reached the point where all this was something incredibly tedious, time consuming and soul destroying, requiring only continuous sacrifices, long ago. These two were the main factors that led us, as a team, to leave the coverage of events and our physical presence and related activities at them behind, as it’s no longer possible to operate the extended online and the physical aspect at the same time.

13) What result did you strive for during your outdoor Cosplay photoshoots and what determines the choice of their location and time?

Obviously, I sought and seek the best result. As for the location of the photoshoot, it depends on the subject. The ideal time to take a photoshoot is clearly during the day, but it happened due to the theme ( thriller ), to do a photoshoot at night. In that case, the shooting conditions were a bit more difficult, but the end result was quite satisfactory.

14) Are you generally satisfied with the people’s response to your work during all these years?

Yes, I’m quite satisfied. Not by everyone, of course, but those who didn’t appreciate my work are counted on one’s fingers. In general, however, I’m satisfied.

15) Besides being a Cosplay photographer, you are also a Cosplayer yourself. When and how did you get started with Cosplay and what got you into it? What was your first Cosplay? What has Cosplay offered you so far?

Around 2009, when I was looking for photos of my favorite character, namely Albert Wesker, I noticed photos of various people dressed like him in the search results. It was then that I first noticed the term “Cosplay” and  decided then to look for more information about it. I discovered this hobby completely by accident. My first Cosplay was created 2 years later, in 2011, but as a rough ( unpublished ) version. Of course, it was Albert Wesker from Resident Evil 4. So, in fact, my first Cosplay ( since it got published ) was in 2013 and it was a J’avo from Resident Evil 6.

I have always liked wearing costumes and crafting, so the combination of those two was the best impetus that got me more involved. In addition to joy, Cosplay also led me to new acquaintances.

16) What kind of characters, sources or types of Cosplays do you choose for your Cosplays? Are these choices based on personal interests, and if so, when did you start getting interested in them?

I choose almost all categories as sources for Cosplay, either from videogames ( being the source with the highest percentage ), movies, TV series, anime or manga. Yes, I’m into videogames and movies a lot, so they have a big impact. I was always into videogames and movies and the kind of characters I choose to cosplay as are the bad guys. However, I’ve also cosplayed the good ones too. My main source is Resident Evil.

17) Which ones are your favorite Cosplays out of all of which you’ve done until now? Which characters do you think were the most popular? Which character do you want to cosplay most in the future?

My favorite Cosplays ( top 5 ) are: 1) Albert Wesker, 2) Wolverine, 3) Prince of Persia, 4) Derek C. Simmons, 5) J’avo. The reason I like them is because I consider them stylish, but also because of their character. The most popular characters were White Ranger, Wolverine and Valak. In the future I would like to do Darth Vader, properly this time, since I did it once, but in a completely rough way.

18) What’s the most difficult Cosplay you have done until today? What makes it the most difficult?

All Cosplays I’ve done so far haven’t been very difficult for me, but if I had to choose one, it would be a particular J’avo, the Honest & Brave One, from my favorite Resident Evil 6. Of course, what made it difficult was the intricate design on his mask.

19) How did you acquire your knowledge on creating Cosplays and what kind of Cosplays do you prefer to wear?

I gained my knowledge for creating Cosplays from various tutorials, in the form of video, but also in the form of text. I prefer to wear mostly casual Cosplays.

20) What do you think about store bought Cosplays? Are they part of your ensemble as well?

It’s a good and ideal solution for those who prefer convenience, either from a financial point of view ( meaning a suit can be cheaper if it’s ready-made, as opposed to making it by yourself ) or either due to lack of time or lack of knowledge about creating costumes. Yes, they make up even 99% of my total! Of course, I had to modify some details on each costume I bought, since sellers are only interested in money and don’t pay attention to details. Personally, I would say that I’m more concerned with creating the props that may accompany each suit.

21) How much effort, time and money does it usually take to create a Cosplay? What is the most common plan and methods you use to create a Cosplay? How important is wig styling and make up in all this?

It depends on the financial situation, time and the character one chooses to cosplay. But, if I had to say an amount, prices for a good suit usually range from 60 to 120 €. I usually start by buying something part by part ( in case I don’t already have a part ), first the clothes, then the shoes, then the wig ( if I don’t already have one ) and in the end I deal with the construction of the prop. Make up and especially wig styling highlight your Cosplay better, so it’s very important, especially if you want a faithful result.

22) How did you feel the first time you appeared in public or at an event wearing a Cosplay. Describe your experience to us.

It felt great appearing at an event in Cosplay for the first time, since it was a moment I was waiting for a long time, after the release of my first Cosplay. My visit to this event was a beautiful and special experience. Of course, no one recognized my character ( they didn’t even know me too ), but that didn’t matter at all, because I went to have fun with my companion, and that happened!

23) How did you end up attending Cosplays events intensively and what experiences did you get from it?

Having a huge love for the subject, but also for the scene, I decided then not to miss any event. It’s something I’ve been wanting for a long time. The experiences I gained were learning more and more about the subject.

24) Did the theme and size of an event ever affect your decision to visit and dress with Cosplays at them? What would you say were your favorite events so far?

Of course not. Anyone can do whatever Cosplay they want, regardless of the event’s theme, and wherever they want. I have attended all events with relevant, but also irrelevant Cosplays!

25) What result do you expect from outdoor Cosplay photoshoots or respective studio photoshoots in which you participate? Which type do you prefer?

I prefer outdoor photoshoots, no doubt. I consider them better in terms of natural background, especially if it fits the theme of the photoshoot. So far, I’ve chosen to do very few photoshoots in studios, leaving the background natural ( white ) or where the appropriate editing was done later, for a more accurate result.

26) Do you think that Cosplay as a subject will continue to be part of your daily life for a long time? If so, what are your plans for the future in this area that you have not yet been able to implement? Is there a long term goal or personal dream that you want to achieve related to it?

Clearly yes, and that’s because, dare I say, I’m obsessed with Cosplay! I never thought of giving it up and neither will. I have several plans for the future, imagine more than 10 Cosplays are already on my wish list!

My personal goal is to do as many ( new ) Cosplays as I can, because Cosplay is one of my favorite hobbies.

27) What is your opinion, in proportion to Greece’s size, in terms of the number and level of Greek Cosplays, but also the level of events where they attend? What evolution around them did you notice over the years?

Cosplay in Greece, and this thanks to a large extent to Cosplayers//GR‘s activities for over 13 years, keeps growing and that makes me very happy. Its level is also at a satisfactory stage, and it keep rising. The level of events is also at a satisfactory stage, with so many different activities included in each event. The evolution I’ve observed over the years has clearly been for the better, both in materials and in details.

28) What is your experience from Cosplay events outside Greece and what’s your opinion about them compared to Greek Cosplay events? What’s your opinion about the quality of the Cosplays you came across in them? Which event do you remember the most and why?

First of all, I haven’t visited many events abroad, but only one so far. That would be AnimeS Expo in Sofia, Bulgaria, which I visited twice in a row. Things are quite different there compared to Greece. Over there, they put a lot of emphasis on shows. A Cosplay contest can last up to 6 hours. An endless spectacle for fans of Cosplay. Cosplays were almost the same comparatively, I would say, meaning they were at a very high level.

29) Do you think the provided Cosplay activities at various events are satisfactory or is there something you would still like to see there regarding Cosplay?

I think that all activities related to Cosplay are satisfactory, at almost all events. There is no Cosplay contest at some events, so I would love to see that extra activity there as well.

30) You have occasionally participated in Cosplay Contests and Cosplay Parades on stage at various events. How did you feel the first time you went on stage? How do you feel now every time you go up?

Regarding Cosplay contests, the first time I went on stage, I felt a lot of excitement, but also a lot of anxiety. After all that time, I still feel anxious, besides excitement, but I think that’s perfectly normal. Everyone feels the same emotions. I can deal with my anxiety and focus on my performance, so I would say I’m used to it.

As for Cosplay parades, I don’t feel any stress being there and so I can enjoy the walk more.

31) How important do you think is a distinction in a Cosplay Contest in terms of whether it was worth the effort someone put into creating a difficult Cosplay? To what extent do you think such a possible distinction should influence the choices of a Cosplayer while creating a Cosplay?

Personally, it doesn’t matter, because there are many factors that will determine the end result. To me, an award that wasn’t earned shouldn’t negatively affect Cosplayer, nor make him work harder or on a more impressive Cosplay for the next contest. Unless of course someone is competitive, but that’s another story. We primarily go on stage for our own personal pleasure and perhaps to show off our work even more. Everyone’s work is easy to see in all cases, so if we’re satisfied with our work, then that’s the best reward we can get.

32) Do you think that off stage roleplaying should be a key part of a Cosplayer or do you consider it practically inapplicable?

Well, there are some Cosplayers ( mostly abroad ) who keep acting their role from the moment they step their foot at the convention until they leave, so whether they get on stage or not is secondary. So, we can’t say it’s practically not applicable. Most people don’t do that, of course, but it’s how everyone sees it, since being in character all the time also has its own kind of fun.

33) Is there anything more that you would like to see in the Greek Cosplay scene in general?

Yes there is. I wish themed rental rooms for Cosplay photoshoots existed here too, along with rentable costumes and props, like in Japan. But since we are not that far yet, I think it will take a long time to get there.

34) Is there any important or funny experience you experienced during your time in the Cosplay scene that you will never forget?

Yes, I ‘ll never forget an old man’s surprise, who had been sitting there for a long time and kept watching us wondering, at the ISAP Thisio station in Athens, while we were sitting there and waiting for the rest of the company, to go to a nearby club, where a Cosplay party would be held.

35) What is the first thing you would say to someone who wants to get into Cosplay Cosplay photography, but also into Cosplay?

I would advise him to start with whatever equipment he has available, not give up if he isn’t satisfied with the initial results and to continue learning the art of photography, until he reaches the results he wants! The same of course applies to Cosplay. If someone wants to start creating them themselves and doesn’t know how, he can get lots of ideas from tutorials.

36) Is there anything last you would like to share with our readers?

I would like to say, if you are thinking  to start cosplaying and have any kind doubts, don’t hesitate to start! You’ll love it so much that you will get hooked!

Also, I would like to thank my dear friend and partner Panagiotis for what we accomplished within our team as Cosplayers//GR along with the team’s past members, as well as for what he taught me related to shooting and editing photos!
