I prefer to shoot outside of cons, because frankly, environmentally speaking, cons suck (especially in France, where convention centers are typically big, noisy, badly lit halls). Also, I like to take my time and during cons cosplayers generally have very little time to pose for each individual photog.
Outside of cons, I shoot both in studio at home, and on location. Sometimes studio is better because the costume is not really fit to shoot outside, but otherwise I prefer to go on location, and have fun with said location. And the less people there are around, the better !
