I haven't been in the corner of my store where eyeliners live in a long time.  One day I was zipping in and out of the store and needed to change my personal store LM.  I moved it near the eyeliner corner and realized all my good intentions to create more liners had hitched a ride out of town.  

Over a period of time I had several ideas about a new offering of eyeliners. So many ideas in fact that as I started drawing I found too many liners to stuff into one fat pack. This is what happens when one waits too long to pick up the artist's sketch pad. So I had to divide the liner themes into two distinct groups. The first group was easy - all relatively straight lines.  This one I'd call Linear.  

But the second group was developing into its own unmanageable set of subgroups.  Some liners were whimsical, others wildly bold, and then there was the Eye of Horus.  How would I define this special set of liners?  With the help of Merriam-Webster and the use of synonyms, I finally found the one word I think really encapsulates all eight of these liners - Chimera.… Read the rest

So Bard has been talking to me for a while now about stepping up my game in my inworld store. Since I'm getting more traffic and more sales, he has suggested (more than once) that I should be offering my customers a better shopping experience. Ah, my husband is so smart. While I have always agreed with this, it takes a lot to get me off the stick. If it's something other than just creating new stuff I'm like molasses in winter to react. I've mentioned this before in an earlier post because IT'S A REAL PROBLEM WITH ME! 

Well, I finally took the plunge and bought a vendor system - CasperVend. Bard did the research for me and this one rated far and above all others. I can't say enough about this great vendor system. It has so many exciting features. It really will make for a better shopping experience for customers while enabling me to offer more sales, more often. Plus customers will be able to buy gift cards or earn points/Lindens toward future purchases. And the merchant tracking features are so intuitive.… Read the rest

Idoya!  What a mysterious beauty.  The name can be traced to numerous lands but I won't reveal how I found it lest you try to pigeonhole her.  She's everyone's mysterious lady!

Katie was inspired by all the Celtic lasses of the world.  As I was developing this skin, Katie started out with a young, innocent look but somehow morphed into a very sophisticated woman of the world. 

Katie comes with 10 makeups, a hair base, Atia's Southern Ocean Eyes and her own shape.  The freckles are subtle but enough to remind us of her origins.

In All Fairness

Introducing Britt! She's fair and gorgeous and comes complete with 10 makeups, a hair base, eyes, and of course her own unique shape. Britt looks ravishing as a blonde or a redhead because of her skin tone and the shade of the eyebrows. She's a natural in either color.

I learned a lot making this skin. A whole lot - more than I can say here. It was fun and I think she's beautiful. I hope you do too!

Ok folks. This is what I've been wanting to do for years - make skins! I've been in awe (and still am) of those wonderful skin makers out there who have provided me with beautiful looks and inspiration to create my own skins. The bar is set very high in some cases and being the competitive little broad that I am, I can't resist a good challenge. That said, I'm the first to admit I have a long way to go in my skill level but I'm not completely ashamed of my first foray into skin making. I've created a soft and natural look with Mariah. She has 4 skin tones and 8 different soft make ups. She comes replete with the Mariah shape, ample cleavage, an open mouth tattoo, hair base and lip shine layer.

Visit Atia Creations inworld or on SL Marketplace for more views of the Mariah skin.

When the Ink Dries – Tattoos by ATIA CREATIONS

I'm still on an expansion roll! Now I'm experimenting with tattoo layers. Anyone who has followed my blog knows I'm not one to jump into anything too quickly. Like when a new product comes on the market, I wait until all the glitches are worked out and the price comes down. As a merchant that's probably not the best approach. Bard is always suggesting I try this new thing or that. I resist, wanting to stay in my comfort zone. But that's not how to run a business. My business acumen is not - well, it sucks.

But I finally decided to try my carpel-tunneled hand at tattoos. Here's what I've come up with so far. The open mouths were especially fun to play with. I'll be working on more lip colors and then I plan to branch out with eye makeup. I hope you like what I've done so far.

I've written in the past about reusing elements of one model to create another. After all some components are expensive and times are tough. Take the case of my friend Joi parading around as her Alt, Ursula. Joi and Ursula are wearing the same skin but we changed the eyes, hair, lashes and lest you think otherwise, almost all the sliders. The changes are subtle because Joi didn't want to lose her ethereal look but nevertheless, they're there. If you're looking for a makeover but are attached to a certain look like Joi why not experiment with a fresh appearance using the same skin?

Lashing Out!

I've been gone a while dealing with RL stuff but also creating for SL. I've been learning how to build prim objects. I know, I know, many of you have been doing this from day one and it's no big deal. But for me, the creation impaired, it's a really big deal. Plus I didn't have to have Bard come save me. Well, there was that day I made every wall on the second floor of the castle transparent.

But I digress as I'm often wont to do. What I learned to create is eye lashes. I did this out of self-defense. I've long bemoaned the fact that as a shape maker I've always had to rely on the creations of others. This is frustrating and oft times problematic. I always knew at some point one or more of my favorite merchants would discontinue a line of products I've used exclusively in creating my characters. In fact I had gotten to the point where I was using only one creator whose lashes I felt were good enough for my models. Well, sure enough, they pulled their line of lashes. Not sure why but there it was - me roaming around their store for hours wondering where they had gone.… Read the rest

A Little Something for Everyone

I love to offer choices. Here I have my fae avie Fiona and her polar opposite, exotic Jazmin. One is very connected to cosmic energy while the other is very connected to diva energy - can you imagine how much gel it took to get that hair to stand at attention like a freshly-minted buck private?

So whether you're looking to emote your Wiccan spirit or rock your super model strut, ATIA CREATIONS has the look for you!
