Yuuka holds her Changer Brace out in front of herself and spins the gold dial around three times then shouts out "Pretty Cure, Mirror Changer!". The gold dial spins around and makes Yuuka's body glow pink. First up, Yuuka's hair turns pink and goes into a ponytail. Her bracelets then appear and Yuuka grabs a hovering heart of light and taps it on her body to make her dress appear. She then uses the heart-like light to make her hair accessories, bow, ribbon and boots appear. She swipes the heart-like light over her right hip, which makes her Changer Brace appear then puts the heart-like light on her chest bow, which transforms into the heart clip. Cure Mirage than flies down from the sky and says her introduction than strikes a pose.
