Estelle can be seen taking a break from her piratey-escapades in the Blood Island tavern, ‘The Barnacles Face’. She is also featured in the audience of the Pirate of the Year Awards, looking astonished as it is revealed that the Pirate Captain received a royal pardon from pirate-hating Queen Victoria, resulting in him being stripped of his title as a pirate! Both Estelle’s head and large bicorn hat are resin with silicone skin, hair and headscarf. She features plasticine around her eyelids and pose-able eyes, as well as a removable mouth piece made from ‘Rapid Protoyped’ resin which would both have been adjusted and alternated in order to transform her expression. Her outfit has been made from foam latex, with the exception of the billowy hems of her trousers which are silicone. There are two metal plates located on the soles of her boots which allow for her to be positioned securely throughout filming. The body of this puppet has been constructed around an intricate internal steel skeleton for maximum manoeuvrability. With the exception of a small amount of cracking around her elbows, Estelle remains in excellent production used condition. She is presented on a bespoke display stand and measures approximately 32.5cm (12.5”) tall, with the stand measuring approximately 13.5x12.5cm (5.25x4.75”) around the base.

In The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria and team up with a young Charles Darwin, but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
