Hey, I did a search and only found three threads about the grunts, but couldn't find any resources in them.

I think I know where to start with this project, I found a pattern that may help for the basic shape of the dress ( http://www.simplicity.com/p-6077-misses-plus-size-sportswear.aspx, again, just the basic shape), but I'm not entirely sure if it even is a dress (looks like it could be shorts) and I plan on using something like t-shirt material to make it.

My questions are, what should I do about the 'R', what do you think about the pattern, and, if any of you have made this costume before, what have you found that works or doesn't work and are there any kind of resources out there that you think is helpful?

(I'm also considering a Team Aqua costume so if anyone has any resources for that that would be really helpful too, but I am looking into that on my own as well.)

I think that for the 'R' you should just try doing one of those iron-on things.
Make a big R out of cardboard and print the iron-on paper in red. Then be really careful when it comes to the cutting part.

The iron-on stuff that I use for t-shirts doesn't start peeling off until after, I'd say, about 17 washes or so.

It honestly just (http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/thumb/4/47/HeartGold_SoulSilver_Team_Rocket_Grunt.png/250px-HeartGold_SoulSilver_Team_Rocket_Grunt.png) looks like a really short dress to me, so I think that the pattern would work for the basic shape of it.

Good luck with your cosplay! :]

Thanks muchly. ^^ I'm very excited to get working on it.

I've also considered, for the boots, going to party city or something and finding a costume on clearance that has the tall boot covers (I think the skimpy Batgirl costumes have those) and painting them the gray color I need, and doing the same for the gloves and belt, that way it's the same color gray, and not a bunch of variants.

You're very welcome~

Hmhm, that sounds like a good idea! Just be really careful when you get to painting the boots!
I would try and give you some hints on that part, but I've never done something like that. @_@;;; Sorry!

That's alright. I'm doing some research into what kind of paints would be good for that kind of thing. I know spray paints and acrylic would just chip off so I either need to find a way to seal it really well or find a different type of paint.
