By Ehryn
Kazuki's Comments: "At the Midlands MCM Expo, Darlo and crew were approached by Ehryn and her friend with a rather snazzy doll, Yuki. After taking a shine to one of our hats (and with that awesome face on them who could blame them), Yuki tried one on."

Darlo's Comments: "I've always been a fan of Nat's artwork and her drawing style. This picture that she drew for me is pretty much my spitting image towards my final year studying at Shrewsbury College, with lots of work and time ticking away. Once again Nat I thank you very much ^_^"
Darlo's MascotDarlo's Mascot
By Barukurii
Artist's Comments: "I'm sorry that I could only do a humanised version of him, I'm terrible at drawing chibis (see his little fan). Anyway, he here he is, all Shrotaku'd out for another day of otaku-ing :3 His overcoat baseball thing is based on those they wear in Japan (particularly the Hanshin Tigers) and the lapel says 'Shrotaku' (su-ro-ta-ku I think D8)"
