We have a fairly large and rabid Hellsing group in NC. Perhaps the fact that you live in south Florida has a lot to do with. Most of the Hellsing characters don't lend themselves to heat-friendly costumes.
One of the most basic rules for survival on any planet is never to upset someone wearing black leather. (This is why protesters against the wearing of animal skins by humans unaccountably fail to throw their paint over Hell's Angels.) -- Terry Pratchett
