It usually takes place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
I've got stories to share, both good and bad, but I thought I'd start off (this very late post) with one of my favorite things:

These ladies were kind enough to let me try out a couple of different flash modes.
I can't decide which is better. Great costumes.
I dig Street Fighter from waaay back and you don't see many Akuma costumes (or Black people), so this was kinda cool. Mystique was a lil scary, but everyone's costumes were great.

The old school and the new school.
Daredevil, Psylocke, Gambit...
My first flash mode produced rather creepy results so I copped someone else's photo op.
EDIT: Notice Gambit's "energized" throwing card. Lucky flash effect.
I found her! What do I win?!
This young lady mentioned a Tampa event that takes place in November. I don't recall the details, right now.
Excellent, very novel costume choice.
(right) Superboy and... umm...?
I'm glad I took a chance and asked if this guy was Nick Fury. He didn't think people recognized him. I think folks were afraid he was just a Black guy with one eyeball. He was so happy he asked for a pic of me, too!
Superboy's costume is one of the best I've seen. I don't know who the other guy is, but he's braver than I.
(right) The Green Hornet.
It was nice to see a couple of different Green Lanterns representing. I assume that's Hal Jordan and Kyle Rayner. Great WW outfit, too.
The Green Hornet is pretty unusual. I'm glad I spotted him.

So cute. So blurry.
(The kids, not Lou.)

I regret not snapping some pix of the C3PO, as well. R2 was mobile (and vocal), by the way.

Annnd a shot of the convention center as we departed. Kinda reminds me of that Sydney opera house.
