The glove antlers are a great look!
One of my favorite things to desensitize with is a baby stroller w/one of my daughter's dolls that cries repetitively. I know mine won't be one jumping in some bystander's stroller at a show when the baby cries all of a sudden (Yes, I've seen it happen unfortunately.)
I hula hoop around them, work showmanship with party noisemakers in my mouth, jump unexpectedly - eventually they just think I'm nuts and expect me to do "stupid" things all the time.
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
