He possessed a helmet which rendered the wearer invisible (Il. v. 845), and later traditions stated that this helmet was given him as a present by the Cyclopes after their delivery from Tartarus. (Apollod. i. 2. § 1.) Ancient story mentions both gods and men who were honoured by Hades with the temporary use of this helmet. (Apollod. i. 6. § 2, ii. 4. § 2.)
Being the king of the lower world, Pluton is the giver of all the blessings that come from the earth: he is the possessor and giver of all the metals contained in the earth, and hence his name Pluton.

“instrument by which a ship is steered,” from Old English helma “rudder; position of guidance, control,” from Proto-Germanic *helmaz (source also of Old Norse hjalm, Old High German helmo, German Helm “handle”), from PIE *kelp- “to hold, grasp” (see helve).
Helm – the handle or tiller, in large ships the wheel, by which the runner is managed; the word is sometimes used with reference to the whole stearing [sic]-gear.
Rudder – that part of the helm which consists of a broad piece of timber, enters the water, and is governed by means of the wheel or tiller.
Tiller – the bar or lever by means of which the rudder of a ship or boat is turned.
“a helmet, a defensive cover for the head,” from Old English helm “protection, covering; crown, helmet,” from Proto-Germanic *helmaz “protective covering” (Cognates: Old Frisian, Old Saxon, Old High German helm, German Helm, Old Norse hjalmr, Gothic hilms), from PIE root *kel- (1) “to cover, conceal, save.” Italian elmo, Spanish yelmo are from Germanic.Ah, this song! shake it!
medieval weapon (a broad blade with sharp edges, ending in a point and mounted on a long handle), late 15c., from Middle French hallebarde (earlier alabarde, 15c.), from Middle High German halmbarte “broad-axe with handle,” from halm “handle” (see helm) + barte “hatchet,” from Proto-Germanic *bardoz “beard” (see beard (n.)), also “hatchet, broadax” (“because the actual axe looks like a beard stuck to the wooden handle” – Boutkan). An alternative etymology [Kluge, Darmesteter] traces first element to helm “helmet,” making the weapon an axe for smashing helmets. In 15c.-16c. especially the arm of foot-soldiers.
“calm, quiet, peaceful,” 1540s, in halcyon dayes (translating Latin alcyonei dies, Greek alkyonides hemerai), 14 days of calm weather at the winter solstice, when a mythical bird (also identified with the kingfisher) was said to breed in a nest floating on calm seas. The name of this fabulous bird is attested in Middle English as alcioun (late 14c.).
The name is from Latin halcyon, alcyon, from Greek halkyon, variant (perhaps a misspelling) of alkyon “kingfisher,” a word of unknown origin. The explanation that this is from hals “sea; salt” (see halo-) + kyon “conceiving,” present participle of kyein “to conceive,” literally “to swell” (see cumulus) probably is ancient folk-etymology to explain a loan-word from a non-Indo-European language. Identified in mythology with Halcyone, daughter of Aeolus, who when widowed threw herself into the sea and became a kingfisher.
“morning light, dawn,” late 14c., from Latin Aurora, the Roman goddess of dawn, from PIE *ausus- “dawn,” also the name of the Indo-European goddess of the dawn, from root *aus- (1) “to shine,” especially of the dawn (source also of Greek ēōs “dawn”).
aurora borealis (n.)
1620s, “Northern Lights,” literally “northern dawn,” said to have been coined by French philosopher Petrus Gassendus (1592-1655) after a spectacular display seen in France Sept. 2, 1621; see aurora + boreal. In northern Scotland and among sailors, sometimes called the dancers, pretty dancers, or merry dancers. Related: Aurora australis (1741).
c. 1200, “nun’s head covering,” from Anglo-French and Old North French veil (12c., Modern French voile) “a head-covering,” also “a sail, a curtain,” from Latin vela, plural of velum “sail, curtain, covering,” from PIE root *weg- (1) “to weave a web.” Vela was mistaken in Vulgar Latin for a feminine singular noun. To take the veil “become a nun” is attested from early 14c.
late 14c., from Old French veler, voiller (12c.), from Latin velare “to cover, veil,” from velum “a cloth, covering, curtain, veil,” literally “a sail” (see veil (n.)). Figurative sense of “to conceal, mask, disguise” (something immaterial) is recorded from 1530s. Related: Veiled; veiling.
1530s, “a cover for the face (with openings for the eyes and mouth), a false face,” from Middle French masque “covering to hide or guard the face” (16c.), from Italian maschera, from Medieval Latin masca “mask, specter, nightmare,” a word of uncertain origin.
It is perhaps from Arabic maskharah “buffoon, mockery,” from sakhira “be mocked, ridiculed.” Or it may come via Provençal mascarar, Catalan mascarar, Old French mascurer “to black (the face),” which is perhaps from a Germanic source akin to English mesh (q.v.). But it may be a Provençal word originally: Compare Occitan mascara “to blacken, darken,” derived from mask- “black,” which is held to be from a pre-Indo-European language, and Old Occitan masco “witch,” surviving in dialects; in Beziers it means “dark cloud before the rain comes.” [See Walther von Wartburg, “Französisches Etymologisches Wörterbuch: Eine Darstellung galloromanischen sprachschatzes”].
Figurative meaning “anything used or practiced for disguise or concealment” is by 1570s.
“a talisman, charm, thing supposed to bring good luck to its possessor,” also “person whose presence is supposed to be a cause of good fortune,” 1881, from provincial French mascotte “sorcerer’s charm, ‘faerie friend,’ good luck piece” (19c.), of uncertain origin, perhaps from or related to Provençal mascoto “sorcery, fetish” (a Narbonnese manuscript of 1233 has mascotto “procuress, enchantment, bewitchment in gambling”), from masco “witch,” from Old Provençal masca, itself of unknown origin, perhaps from Medieval Latin masca “mask, specter, nightmare” (see mask (n.)).
Popularized by French composer Edmond Audran’s 1880 comic operetta “La Mascotte,” about a household “fairy” who gives luck to an Italian peasant, which was performed in a toned-down translation in England from fall 1881. In reference to animals (later costumed characters) representing sports teams, by 1889.
For the edification of readers not versed in baseball lore it should be stated that the mascot has become quite an important institution among the professional teams of America. He may be a boy possessed of some special attainment or physical peculiarity, or he may be a bull-pup with a prominent patch over his left eye. It matters not whether a mascot be brute or human, so long as his presence upon the players’ bench insures a victory—in the minds of the players—to the team with which he has cast his fortunes and in whose favor he exercises the influence he is supposed to have with Dame Fortune. [Harry Clay Palmer, ed., “Athletic Sports in America, England, and Australia,” New York, 1889]
[Investigate The Mascot Life, of course]
Being a mascot is closer to traditional acting than many people might realize, except rather than a camera or a theatre audience, the performer is fully immersed in their audience and can interact more closely than any other traditional performer is able. They’re tasked with feeling what the “audience” is thinking, reacting to their excitement in real time, and improvising at the drop of the hat.
Anybody who has ever been to a pro sports event of any kind knows that a mascot can switch between physical humor, funny signs, and skits in the crowd depending on the mood in the stadium and the status of the game. These are skills any good comedian has in their holster, but they’re absolutely essential to be a successful mascot. Another pro mascot, Peter*, works for a soccer team down South and describes adjusting to different crowds and teams like “sports Saturday Night Live. You have to find out what’s funny, what’s relevant…and what’s edgy.”
There are veteran performers who take more than a few young entrants under their wings in one way or another, and due to the tight knit nature of the world, this shouldn’t be a surprise.Ah, this Song!
While Bartlett mostly kept his identity secret in high school, college, and the pros, that didn’t prevent him from showing off his acrobatic skills at a rollicking college party or two. Everyone has some slips of course – what’s the use of those skills if you can’t get a free beer by showing them off now and then?
yet mascot tradition generally frowns upon revealing your identity while still holding a job as a paid mascot. The integrity of the character sometimes depends on the audience being able to suspend their belief that someone is actually inside the suit, but more than that anonymity contributes to the effective longevity of each mascot character.Max Leyf sent me a mesage today… all’s Normal 🙂
A single day in the life of this one mascot could consist of multiple school visits, each of which consists of multiple hours of traveling and interacting with young kids.Remember when Clowns were supposed to funny? I do… Circus in the early 90s. That Funny Shine was out of this world
And while that rings true in the way that Mascots allows for unorthodox animals or mascot choices to appear (an octopus/turtle duo that also happen to be a seriously unhappy married couple, or a Rabbi and worm dance team), it doesn’t have much respect for the people behind the mask.
This Song! What a Great Album! 32:05 La Vigüela (repeat)
One thing that isn’t changing as technology advances and mascots become more bold and skilled is the community. It’s hard to replicate all the solidarity that comes from a job where everybody taking part is doing for a pure and happy reason, even if they aren’t allowed to talk while they’re doing it.

I can’t find the video… so Greta was discovered by a “marketing’ guy who took a different route to his office one day, and ‘found’ a simulation; he already pulled off an earlier simulation that didn’t get enough waves. Investigate.
