Best options for airbender temporary tattoos/clothing in LA?

I'm trying to create an pretty good airbender/air nomad costume for halloween. In particular I'm looking for advice on people I might turn to in Los Angeles to temporarily give me the iconic arrow tattoos. Do I want body paint? Henna tattoos? Something else? What do I need to be aware of if I've never done anything like this before? Also interested in any tips for putting together the red/yellow outfit -- either pieces I could buy off the shelf (over the internet or locally) that are close, or people I could go to.

Who makes the money when a movie goes big?

So Avatar has passed the two-billion-dollar mark. Who gets all of that money? The distributing studio? The producers? The movie theaters? And what the heck is the difference between an "executive producer" and a "producer"? Some films seem to have half a dozen of each.

sitepal.com or castration via rusty spoon? I'll take the spoon, please.

Help me convince a co-worker, by pointing me to credible sources online (or offline, if necessary), that adding "web avatars" to web pages, such as those found at sitepal.com, are a HORRIBLE idea. I am primarily concerned with issues dealing with usability + accessibility problems and eye socket/ear drum bleeding caused by such things.
