Advice: Missed detail on a commission

Hey there! I recently commissioned a plush artist and a significant detail of my commissioned character clearly did not make it through to the final product. In all references provided, my character had a collar / accessory. I checked the folder of reference images to make sure it was present, and it was, but when I was shown what I assumed to be two WIP images of the plush, the collar wasn't there. At the time I just figured it was a WIP and was super happy to see progress, only for the artist to post the plush as finished and to ask for the final shipping payment.

I'm not too sure what to do here, actually! I like the plush, but I'm not sure if in this case it's appropriate for me to ask to have the collar added, as I would like it done, or if I should let it slide altogether? If I ask to have the collar added, should I offer to pay an additional cost? Is there a polite way to go about this? I really do like the plush! I would just like my character's final detail added and would rather not create too much trouble.

Thanks for your help!

That is really a shame and kind of unprofessional if you ask me. :/ At the very least they can just apologize that it would cost extra, and maybe they dont have time in their schedule if they can't accomodate you. I would just chalk it up as a lesson learned; in the future, if there is a must have feature, marking or characteristic, note it as such on the reference sheet or note. i have seen some reference sheets that point out features as optional or must have. :/

I'll just need to make a more clear reference sheet for the future, tbh! Ultimately, I can't be too fussed, miscommunication is a bummer to deal with all around and while I'm a little disappointed, it's not the end of the world. You're right - it's a lesson learned, and at least that's something. o:
