  2. 2

    Dye your hair purple.

    Sew or glue a large red "R" appliqué on the shirt or sweatshirt.

    Accessorize with long black gloves, black boots, and a black or brown belt.

Tips and warnings

  • Carry around an artificial long-stemmed red rose - it's one of James' favorite props.
  • Be sure to memorize the Team Rocket song: "Prepare for trouble/Make it double/To protect the world from devastation/To unite all peoples within our nation/To denounce the evils of truth and love/To extend our reach to the stars above/Jessie/James/Team Rocket blast off at the speed of light/Surrender now or prepare to fight!"
