I think the best approach at first is just to ask cosplayers for pictures during cons and get to know them... If you don't have fancy equipment, networking is the best way to get people to shoot with you, and if they like what they see when you give them the photos, they'll gladly pose for you next time.
I do have a DSLR, but compared to the guys next to me, it can look very modest (I often only have my camera body with a small prime on it, when others have a big zoom, lightstands and the like). However, cosplayers know and trust me to take good pictures of them, so I get plenty people to shoot with me
