Got Halloween plans for your theremin?

For folks in the USA (and other countries, I'm sure), it's getting close to Halloween time again. Time for us to dress up in crazy costumes and go door-to-door begging for candy with our kids. I always enjoy to hear from our readers about how they're planning to use theremins in conjunction with their Halloween festivities. If you're looking for some ideas, check out this article.

Last year, I dragged my Ethervox theremin out onto the front porch - big mistake. Nearly every kid who came up wanted to play with, the rest cried. Maybe this year I'll go for something a little smaller, like a creepy baby doll head optical theremin or a theremin in a skull. They may not be great for music, but it's really just about scaring the kids right now, isn't it?

So, TW readers... Does your country celebrate Halloween? If so, are you planning to celebrate Halloween with your theremin? If not, do you have any other plans to hide in the dark and make scary sounds to frighten children we should know about?
