For the pants, you could consider just getting a pair of black dress pants, and some white fabric in a similar material. Then cut off one of the legs of the pants at a slant, cut open the seam and use that as a pattern for the white fabric. You could sew that up, and sew it back onto the pants in place of the leg you cut off.
Like this except you should probably choose where/how to cut?: http://oi47.tinypic.com/v8eqfr.jpg

Are there any recommendations to how I can get that Virgo sign on?

I agree with Neelh. Maybe if you used a white tie, so the green would contrast more. Also, the neckline of the dress is white, not dark green, so it would be more like the dress for the tie to be white, at least in my opinion.

And yeah, use fabric paint. It's useful.
