As much as I don’t like to nitpick, my customized caketopper from etsy didn’t come out to my satisfaction. After a 2 month delay, I got a photo of the final model and the first thing I noticed was how weird the clay bride’s face looked. Then a bit of lumpiness and wonky lines in the sides of the car.
Do you think it looks alike or shoudl I ask the creator to redo? Just want to figure out if I’m just being silly (after all I pay a little over $150 for it)

How it turned out
The above is all her other models and their similarilty…rounded, features spaced apart, etc.

I think it looks pretty spot on. If you are unhappy though, I would voice your concerns to her.

I don’t really see the problem with the cake topper compared to the drawing – they look very similar to me? But if you don’t like something about it, there’s no reason you can’t mention it and see what can be done to fix it.

Um, not to be rude, but it looks pretty much exactly like what you asked for. It’s cute and I think they did a pretty spot on job.

I think it looks just like the drawing. But maybe you could ask her about it?

I’m a little confused as well…to me it looks just like the drawing! Yes, you are paying for it so you should definitely get what you want, but TBH I’m not understanding what’s wrong with it.

@Cappugcino: No probs, just that my screen isn’t that good so I’m not if it was distorted. I’d rather honesty anyday!

I’m confused as well, I don’t see any problems!

Looks good to me but you are the one that has to have it on your wedding cake. Because of how similar they are though the person redoing it probably won’t know what changes to make so make it very clear what you don’t like about it.

Thanks ladies, I’ll leave as it. Just take it to being a little too perfectionist, haha.

The eyes are lumpy, but that should be an easy fix. Otherwise it looks spot on to me.

Can you please clarify this for me? Is the top picture the picture you sent to her? Then, is the second row of pics your actual topper that you received? And, is the bottom row how you HOPED yours would turn out but did not? If that is the case, then I can see what I think is bothering you. If what I said above is not accurate, then I am confused.

It’s true you pay for a certain level of satisfaction, but when things are handmade, it’s unrealistic to expect them to be cookie-cutter copies of the samples/models. There will always be slight variations. Honestly I don’t doubt that YOU can see a variance or imperfection, but I sure can’t, and I believe anything that’s not spot-on is going to fall into the expected range of variation in handmade items. If you’re buying several things from etsy, you may need to get used to these small variations; otherwise you will drive yourself crazy and never be satisfied.

@Brielle: Yes, yes and yes.
I know the face is the teeniest diff, but I’m not going to persue it. Might take her another 2 months…sigh~
