I've only really done indoor shoots outside cons, except for my JoJo shoot way back, but with no cons on the radar until Fanime, I think I'll be doing some.
Honestly the majority of my photography-of-this-type for this year has been outside of cons, and all of that has been outside, nearly all in plain view of the public. Never had any real problems with that.
Logistics isn't that bad, it's really nothing compared to the logistics that a convention requires.
