Default What is this called?

There probably is no specific name for these, but what are those long conical robes that some statues of Saints are clothed in, such as

Infant of Prague

Our Lady of Walsingham

Our Lady of the Phillipines

Mother of Christ, Star of the Sea, pray for the wanderer, pray for me.
