Help me find the name for my new favorite pants

What are these pants (on the girl) called, so that I can I find them/a pattern for them? From the Bollywood routine on So You Think You Can Dance last night. The slit and the billoweyness when she spins are the key aspects of why I love these.

Where can I find pasties in NYC for a mermaid costume?

I'm trying to put together a last minute costume for the Coney Island Mermaid Parade this Saturday, and need some pasties with tassels. Ideally I'm going for something somewhat classy in an old-school burlesque style, like this, but would also settle for something basic like this, that I could decorate at home with sparkly glitter and whatnot. Because of the timing I can't shop online, so need to find a store in NYC (preferably Manhattan or Brooklyn). Any ideas, metafilter? Thanks!!
