We have two events on a single Saturday: one is a costume party in the middle of the day, and the other is a concert that evening. Costume-to-street-attire ideas needed!

We want to leave the house, without having to come home to change before the concert.
So! We need "costumes" for the party that can live on top of an acceptable street outfit. We don't mind dressing up or down, as the concert is neither dressy nor casual.
I have a few cocktail dresses, and he owns a suit and a tux. The rest of our wardrobes are typical sweaters/jeans/button-downs/nice shoes/sneakers, and casual dresses/heels for me.
Along the lines of what we're thinking, which could actually be really funny: "Craft Punk." Create papîer-mache balls, spray paint them gold/silver/black, and wear suits and gloves.
Any other ideas?
Additionally, if we do go for Craft Punk, what's the best way to make a papîer-mache ball that will fit over our heads, not completely suffocate us, and let us see out?
