Welcome Lord Dakhanavar

The Halloween season proper may be past for this year, but Spirit Halloween is still sending me coupons in my email. (Hey, they know a sucker, a fish on the line—I mean, a good customer—when they see one.) But they aren’t just offering deals on the stuff they already have in inventory, though. (And about those “deals”: I’m afraid, once shipping-and-handling charges are factored in, the “deals” aren’t, anymore.) For the first time ever, Spirit Halloween has debuted a new animatronic decoration NOT released at Halloween! That animatronic decoration is named Dakhanavar, and he kicks much of the ass. Check him out!

If the name sounds familiar—it did to me too—that’s because Dakhanavar was the name of an Armenian vampire who played the face. “Face” is the term for a hero in pro wrestling; all geeks should be familiar with wrestling-speak, which is really just carnie-speak. Dakhanavar was a face in that he protected the valley in which he lived from outsiders, a sort of vampiric guard dog.  If you were one of those outsiders, you would have seen Dakhanavar as a heel. “Heel” is the wrestling term for a bad guy. It’s also appropriate, given that the Dakhanavar of folklore preferred to suck its victim’s blood through their feet.
