Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter
That was the original costume for the pearl dancers for ursula back when the parade opened on May 5th, by about that holiday season they switched to the costume that you see today.
My guess is that the change was made so the pearl dancers would match the flotsam and jetsam puppet holders. I really don't see the reason, I think the originals that are in your picture were much better.
