At one point I had to fix the shield because I wasn't satisfied with it and I wanted it to look a little more better for her first con.
While I can understand her frustration, she really did need to do some research. Shipping is always expensive. Especially rush shipping.
I honestly doubt she understands how much work went into this. You're not a factory that can punch these suckers out in a day. I've made very small props myself, and they were exhausting to finish at my slow pace. Heck- I
can't even imagine how much time you put into these, which honestly makes me appreciate your work all the more.
This actually was my first time commissioning someone from Canada...Not sure I want to do it again haha xD.
XDD I sure as hell wouldn't, at least not with a work frame of a week or two before the con. It takes that long just for regular (read: somewhat cheap) shipping. XD
But I hope you're not letting this whole thing get you down! Your work is amazing and that's why people commission you, including this ninny.
