How to Make Your Puppet Believable by Giving Him/Her a Unique Personality:
  • Voicing
    • The sound and tone of the voice must match the personality
    • What the puppet says
    • How the puppet says it
  • Actions & Movements
    • Do the actions and movements mimick real-to-life? 
    • For some more eccentric personalities, you may need to exaggerate the movements
  • Looks
    • Clothing & fashion - How is the puppet dress? Does it fit the character's personality?
    • What about the facial features? Do they convey part of that character's personality?
