When you make a mistake while purchasing a doll for your Sailor Moon collection (mainly because you didn't read closely) where's a way to fix it

One of probably the cutest sailor moon doll lines of the 90’s is the line made for the Sailor Moon Stars season called “Dream Pocket”. Each doll came with a clear pouch perhaps meant to represent the pocket. As with many early merchandise, these dolls can be hard to find and extremely expensive. I was able to purchase Sailor Neptune doll in January and really wanted to find Sailor Uranus before Valentine’s Day. And shortly after Neptune’s arrival I saw an eBay listing for the Sailor Uranus doll with everything except the box. Perfect! Since I don’t really care for boxes this seems an ideal find (less clutter). Unfortunately I got too excited about the price and didn’t pay close enough attention to the description. My mistake entirely…lesson learned. ALWAYS check the description.

The doll came with round purple brooch instead of the gold-colored heart brooch that Neptune and others (except for Eternal Sailor Moon and Starlight dolls) have. The seller had actually stated as much but I didn’t read close enough being in a hurry to buy the doll for such a fantastic price. After realizing my mistake I attempted to buy a heart-shaped button but could not find the right size or color. And then it occurred to me. A while back, I ended up with various incomplete outfits for World, World DX and Pretty Guardian dolls. The heart brooch was also used in the World DX line. After searching through the pile I found a chest bow probably from the Sailor Jupiter’s DX outfit that I at some point attempted to recolor.

After finding the bow it became a simple process of detaching the heart brooch from the bow, removing the outfit from the Uranus doll, removing the purple brooch but cutting the threads and sewing the heart brooch on instead.

Since I’m not an expert seamstress I only had white thread as the closest to the yellow bow but it worked. The rather large needle surprisingly fit through brooch hole quite easily.

I’m rather happy with the end result. I’ve had to re-do my work once but overall I think she looks just like she’s supposed to if she was just made.
