Mary can be seen both in the audience of the Royal Society Event as the Pirate Captain presents his dodo Polly to an astounded crowd, and also standing at the prize-giving ceremony for Scientific Discovery of the Year just as her majesty Queen Victoria enters to congratulate the Pirate Captain for his achievement. Her dress is made entirely from foam latex, with intricate ‘lace’ detailing around the bodice. Her head and hair are both resin and she features a small amount of plasticine around her pose-able eyes in order for her expression to be altered by puppeteers. Mary’s skin is silicone and her removable mouthpiece is ‘Rapid Prototyped’ resin and features the handwritten reference ‘LAV’. Her upper body can be animated via an intricate internal metal armature and her elaborate dress is secured to a resin base, allowing 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. With the exception of a small amount of cracking around the sleeves of her dress; she remains in fantastic production used condition. Mary is presented on a bespoke display stand and measures approximately 27.5cm (10.5”) in height, with the stand measuring approximately 17.5 x 17.5cm (6.75 x 6.75”) 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!
