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!!

What would Jesus wear on Halloween?

My teenaged son want to dress up as Jesus. He has the hair, but he wants a robe like Jesus wore. However, he doesn't want a crappy polyester costume-shop robe. Also both of us refuse to sew anything. So -- what would be a good Jesus-robe (or just any plausible Jesuswear. This would be daywear, not Jesus eveningwear) that we could buy, in a nice natural fabric? and we're in New York City so if you have specific suggestions for stores that would be even better.
