Team Rocket Insigna/Logo Advice

I am looking at doing a Team Rocket grunt cosplay and am wondering what are some possible methods of doing the large R on their shirt. The rest of the outfit is fairly straightforward, just a matter of finding the right stuff. I'd appreciate any tips people have.

If you can find it (which at a fabric store you should) look for a bif "R" in the letter cut outs..Then you just sew it on..If you can't find one, you can do a nuber of things..
-Screen print it. You can actually go online and get one made on any type of shirt, but you'll need to buy ANOTHER shirt if you already have one, because they will use one of their own that you pay for.
-Paint it on with red fabric paint. Start by making a stencil out of cardstock of cardboard, then lay it over the shirt and paint. Or just eyeball it..
-Applique. This will be the same as putting the big letter on it as the top of this post, but you can also just cut out the letter out of red fabric, and sew it on, folding in the raw edges so it oesn't fray.
You can also glue it on..But glue usually doesn't last that many washes..So if it's something you wanna have for a long time, don't glue it on.

I am in the process of making a Rocket Grunt costume too ^_^. I chose to print out an 'R' from the internet (so that I could make sure to get the correct 'Team Rocket' font), and attach it to my uniform using a blanket stitch. It worked-out really well!

If you aren't crazy picky (like me >_<) about getting the exactly correct font, an easy shortcut is to purchase an 'R' from one of those letterman jacket websites (or eBay), and sew that on instead.

Good luck!
