OF MONSTERS AND MEN

“When the king brands us ‘pirates,’ he doesn’t mean to make us adversaries,” Captain Flint (played by Toby Stephens) tells his crew in the first episode of Black Sails. “He doesn’t mean to make us criminals – he means to make us monsters. For that’s the only way his god-fearing, tax-paying subjects can make sense of men who keep what is theirs and fear no one.” Flint will say or do whatever is necessary to keep his men focused on the Urca de Lima – and after establishing himself as a top earner in Nassau, there’s no reason to doubt his resolve. Fans of Black Sails have an opportunity to stake a claim their own piece of Captain Flint treasure – in the form of his screen-used dagger with a gold-and-silver handle with the head of a lion from the fourth season of the series (click here for photos and more information). Also available is Captain Flint’s custom-made pirate coat worn on-screen in multiple first-season episodes (pictured above, click here), and Flint’s stunt-double’s pirate costume, which includes his boots, belt, pants and shirt (click here). Don’t miss out on your chance to own a piece of Black Sails today – click here to visit VIP Fan Auctions and see all of the available props and wardrobe items from the epic Starz series today!

 

RACKHAM UP

Credited as the brains behind Captain Vane’s brawn, Jack Rackham (played by Toby Schmitz) is shrewd and charming – though he often finds himself needing to be bailed out of trouble by his beloved Anne Bonny. Eventually, Rackham shows himself to be a capable pirate captain, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering the long coat (pictured above) he wears on-screen in the pivotal second-season finale. Rackham’s custom-designed coat – one of only two received from the Black Sails production) – is brown, grey and dirty from sailing and battle on the high seas and in Nassau.

NASTY GIRL

When Black Sails fans first meet Anne Bonny (played by Clara Paget), the beautiful woman with the husky brogue quickly carves up a pirate from a rival crew with the mercilessness and tenacity of a shark. From the moment she sneers out from under the low-bent brim of her hat, it becomes instantly clear that Anne Bonny is not a woman who should be underestimated, yet many will continue to make that mistake. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the custom-made dark grey hat she wears on-screen during the third and fourth seasons of Black Sails. Inscribed inside is the wardrobe production note “Bonny hero,” which adds to its authenticity.

BLACK SAILS BATTLE GEAR

Daggers, swords and other devices that shoot, slice or smash on the high seas are natural extensions of any pirate’s hand, and VIP Fan Auctions is offering some of the notorious weapons wielded on-screen by Black Sails’ most popular buccaneers. Currently on the auction block is the dagger used by Captain Vane (click here for photos and more information), a gold-and-silver handled stunt dagger used by Captain Flint (click here) and, perhaps the greatest weapon a pirate can have, the combination axe/rifle used by Billy Bones (click here). Visit the Black Sails auction page for these and other weapons, wardrobe and props from the epic Starz series.

 

 

SILVER WEAR

Black Sails’ reluctant pirate hero John Silver (Luke Arnold) has paid a dear price for his loyalty, but his cunning and wit allow him to be a voice of reason to the increasingly tyrannical Captain Flint – and he eventually realizes the power he possesses in being both loved and feared. VIP Fan Auctions is offering several signature wardrobe pieces of the legendary pirate, including Silver’s custom-designed blue and black long pirate coat (pictured above; click here for photos and more information). Also available is the green custom-made jacket Silver wore on-screen during the second season of Black Sails (click here for photos and more information). From the second episode of Black Sails, John Silver’s screen-used shirt, pants and blanket are also available to the fan who casts the winning bid (click here for photos and more information).

BONNY LIES OVER THE OCEAN

As beautiful as she is cold-blooded, Anne Bonny (played on Black Sails by Clara Paget) entered the pirate life when Jack Rackham slit the throat of the abusive man who made young Anne his child bride. Joining the crew of Captain Charles Vane, Anne Bonny was a quick study and settled in to life on the high seas as the most notorious pirate in history. VIP Fan Auctions is offering a piece of the character’s unique wardrobe – Anne Bonny’s custom-made coat (pictured above) worn on-screen in seasons two through four. Brown and green in color and distressed for authenticity, the long coat will protect the high bidder form the elements – and provide a distinctive piece of Black Sails history.

‘BLACK’ MAGIC

Long John Silver lost his leg in one of the most gruesome ways imaginable. Luckily for Luke Arnold, the actor who plays the legendary pirate on Black Sails, bringing the aftermath of the attack to the screen was fairly painless thanks to some practical visual effects – the tools of which are now available to the fan who casts the winning bid at VIP Fan Auctions. The set includes the knee slip and brace that allowed the actor to hide his lower leg, as well as John Silver’s peg leg and a peg-leg insert to complete the effect (see photo above). Don’t miss this chance to own a piece of television visual effects and dazzle friends at the next costume party. Click here for photos, more information and to claim the peg leg of Long John Silver today!

 

SHIPMATE STEEL

The dagger used by Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) during the fourth season of Black Sails is as impressive as it is well-used. Crafted from silver and gold, the prop weapon is befitting an accomplished master and commander. The dagger measures more than 15 inches long with a 10-inch blade and a handle engraved with a lion’s head. Click here for photos, more information and to place a bid on Flint’s dagger today. VIP Fan Auctions is also offering shipmate John Silver’s (Luke Arnold) screen-used dagger, which is roughly the same size as Flint’s but more subdued with a simple brown and gold handle.

THREE CORNERS

The three-corner pirate hat is a signature piece of any buccaneer’s wardrobe, and the hat worn on-screen in Black Sails by Jack Rackham (Toby Schmitz) is the epitome of pirate fashion. The distressed brown leather hat (pictured above) was built for the high seas and worn in multiple episodes by the quartermaster of the pirate ship Ranger and the eventual captain of Colonial dawn. The hat is obviously lucky as Rackham successfully found the Urca gold and survived numerous battles alongside Charles Vane and Anne Bonny.
