haha ;D

or if you want to do it in some fancy text that you don't have a font of, a thing I have tried and tested is getting a polygon plane, making it a quad, then extruding edges and pulling verts around etc and shaping the C how you want it to be, selecting all the faces then extruding faces and dragging out... although i'm sure you'll have the font so just urr... use the text tool

Im sure there is a text festure in maya. Maybe that would be easier.

If your going to make it, id use curves then use the loft tool. It maybe easier to get an image of the letter 'C' to use as referance.
