Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Russian accent in motherly, ditsy European blonde, or very deep butch voice like a Russian gym teacher who is strong like bull. Sensual French accent with very soft and airy soothing tone, pronouncing every consonants in a very breathy manner and curling the endings of words. White gangsta girl with slightly Latina accent. Big sis, young, cool but authoritative. The over-reacting panicky paranoid girl, easily spooked and squeamish. The sales associate, clear and helpful. The receptionist who is convinced she should've been a voice over artist because she gets so many compliments on her voice and enunciation over the phone. The cousin everybody hates. Drunk and slurry. Over-the-top excited like she just came off a rollercoaster ride girl. The sexy awesome girlfriend. News reporter. The airport flight announcer.
