Devil May Cry 4 Nero related question

So if anyone knows Nero from Devil May Cry 4, then you know that this would be the most wrong symbol on his arm:

the actual symbol should be;

http://i44.tinypic.com/2nlb5eg.jpg

I was planning on taking a cloth of the same color, putting the correct symbol on, and patching the cloth onto the sleeves. any idea on whether or not that would work? Or would I need to go about this another way?

why don't you just paint over the incorrect design with a color that matches the fabric and applique/paint/whatever the correct design on?

Because it's stitched in, it's not painted onto the costume. If it were, trust me I probably would've. And it would give it a bit of an uneven look if I painted over the stitching.

if its stitched on couldnt you use a stitch ripper to take off the old one and then paint/embroider the new symbol on it?

or you could probaly dye it black and use red 3D paint over it? 3D paint is pretty good to do decorative things plus if the fabric is right it shouldnt bleed unless its stretchy like lycra then you need luck with that

If I knew what to do, I really wouldn't be asking about this xD I don't know what a stitch ripper is, and all.

Okay we've covered that basis, so then what, stitch in the new symbol over the old one and then stitch together the fabric that reveals my arm so that it attaches to the symbol?
