For Halloween 2010 he won first place as the “Mad Hatter” inspired by the “Mad Hatter” in “Alice in Wonderland. He practiced everyday to put his own spin on the costume and make-up. He pieced his outfit from items at Salvation Army and the Thrift Store to get the “Mad Hatter” outfit. The hat came from his mom’s costume shop, a scarf wrapped around the hat and color pencils around the hat’s rim. His hair was an Afro wig from New York. The make-up he wore came from his mom’s shop Nocostco. The outfit also contained a sweater vest over a college shirt and black tie covered by a Plaid jacket with chains of thread on the outside. His legs were covered with corduroys and his feet with boots. Shoka created a portrait portraying him as the “Mad Hatter” a role he embodies in everyday life. Right now, Shoka is looking for a partner NOT boss to help him promote and distribute his artwork.
