Ed Droste, Musician, Grizzly Bear—A Very Large Bottle of Pom Pomegranate Juice
What's the best costume you've ever had?
I was POM in 2004, right after the drink was unveiled to the public. The advertising campaign was everywhere that fall and it was way too expensive and cloyingly sweet so I decided to be a giant bottle. Drink me and you'll never die.
Most absurd "sexy" costume imaginable:
One time some girl I saw was just "sexy"—that was it.
Have you ever had a wardrobe malfunction?
There were holes in my "flasher/stalker/fake penis" costume.
Any costume pet peeves?
Last year it was the ubiquitous Amy Winehouse get up. This year I'm going to preemptively say Sarah Palin.

Any plans for this year?
