Mary Celeste can be seen celebrating, and serving tankards of grog to burly pirates in The Barnacles Face pub on Blood Island, as Black Bellamy makes his dramatic entrance to announce his plans to enter, and win, the coveted Pirate of the Year Award! Her dress, made from foam latex, features a great amount of detail, including a corseted bodice and frilly sleeves. Mary’s skin is silicone with resin hair and a removable mouthpiece made from ‘Rapid Prototyped’ resin. Both her eyebrows and the skin surrounding her eyes and eyelids have been sculpted from plasticine to allow for maximum expression. She can be animated via an intricate internal metal armature which has, along with her dress, been attached to a resin base to allow for her to be positioned securely throughout filming. She is accompanied by a small mechanism tool to adjust her skirt, although it is currently unclear how this would have been used. There is a small amount of cracking around her sleeves and chest , but she otherwise remains in fantastic production used condition. She stands at approximately 32cm (12.5”) tall.

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!
