Default Powerful small/thing portable speakers? (battery powered?)

I tried searching, and I don't know if this is in the wrong forum.

So let's say I have a costume and I want to have some speakers hooked up to a MP3 player inside the costume that can loudly project the sound while I dance. The speakers would have to be very thin so that they wouldn't bulge out of the costume, and they would have to be powerful enough to project sound through the costume.

Any ideas? I'd prefer something that doesn't cost too much, but I do need fairly good quality to make this effective.

P.S. I am an utter noob to all things audio, so please speak in laymans terms.

Thanks

Look at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gear-4-PG309.../dp/B001ANIAP8

I have one - pretty good for the price. Goes quite loud, not really deep bass, but no-one cares for the size of it.

1" thick, then add the plugs at the back - 2" where the plugs are.

Works with 4xAA batteries, lasts several hours on one set.

Dunno what others think though.

You might look at some panel speakers made or licensed by a company called NXT. They are very thin and quite robust. Not real hi-fi but plenty of midrange and probably good for what you're trying to do.

You can power them from a T-Amp from Parts Express or one of the similar boards running the same Tripath 2024 chip--sorry had to get geeky so you could have something to search eBay with.
