Show off that tattoo, then later conceal it

Tattoos have become almost as common as earrings and bracelets as a form of body decoration. But there are times when a tattoo just isn't the thing, when temporary camouflage is politically, or politely, preferable: a job interview at a bank, a bridesmaid stint at the country club, meeting the boyfriend's parents, perhaps?

Covermark Cosmetics, makers of a line of concealment makeup, now has introduced a product it originally developed for models going to auditions. It's called the Tattoo Cover Kit and includes two shades of SPF 15 waterproof foundation, primer, moisturizer and finishing powder. Applied correctly, the makeup will conceal all traces of a tattoo.

The kit comes in two shades, fair/medium and medium/dark and is available at Sephora for $25 or online at covermark.com.

Two scoops rice and a T-shirt to go

Chef Russell Siu of Kaka'ako Kitchen is such a good guy that he'll give you the shirt off his back. Well ... he'll sell it to you.

Siu's restaurant has a new logo number, designed by Brian Boswell, which expresses the eatery's hearty philosophy of the gourmet plate lunch. Three shirt varieties are on sale at the Ward Centre restaurant: crew neck ($15), scoop neck ($17) and tank top ($14). The shirts are a menu special in October, marked down 10 percent all month.

Information: 596-7488.

Big screens have a small weekend

Keanu Reeves, center background, tops the weekend's movie ticket sales with his new flick, "Hardball."

Gannett News Service

Movie ticket sales plunged over the weekend, and analysts blamed a dearth of new films, the telethon that kept many viewers at home Friday night and continued jitters over terrorist attacks.

Overall, estimated weekend ticket sales for the top dozen films was $44.2 million, a 15 percent drop from the previous weekend and about 7 percent lower than the same weekend a year ago. It was the worst weekend for the studios since Sept. 15, 2000.

The top 10 films from the weekend, according to Exhibitor Relations Inc.:

    1. "Hardball," $8.2 million
    2. "The Others," $5.2 million
    3. "The Glass House," $4.4 million
    4. '"Rush Hour 2," $3.7 million
    5. "The Musketeer," $3.5 million
    6. "Two Can Play that Game," $3.2 million
    6. (tie) "Rock Star," $3.2 million
    8. "Rat Race," $3 million
    9. "Jeepers Creepers," $2.8 million
    10. "American Pie 2," $2.6 million
