Elizabeth's Social Media:


LDShadowLady, named Elizabeth Dwyer, was born in the United Kingdom on October 7, 1992, and lived a generally quiet life with her mother, father, and younger sister. Her mother, unfortunately, turned to alcohol and became an alcoholic. LDShadowLady was young at the time and often turned to the games on her computer to tune out the rest of the world. She enjoyed gaming a lot, beginning with “Call of Duty” and moving on to tons of other games. While gaming started as an escape from her turbulent home life, her love for it only grew, and soon she knew that she wanted to turn this love into her career!

She went to university in 2010 and attended Liverpool University; studying towards a degree in Computer Animation and Visualization. She had hoped that this would be her calling when it came to the gaming industry, however, she did not enjoy it as much as she thought she would. In this same year, LDShadowLady decided to begin her own YouTube channel where she could post videos of her playing various games! In 2012, while still completing her degree, she created a female gaming group called Pixel Pact.

After university, LDShadowLady began to solely focus on her YouTube channel, creating many different videos and games that she shared with her audience. In 2013, she created another YouTube channel that was named “More LDShadowLady,” though she has not released as many videos on this account. In 2017, LDShadowLady became engaged to her now-husband Joel, who is another gamer that she had met years before at Gamefest Expo. The couple were married in 2019 and remain happily together today. We love how far LDShadowLady has come and from such humble beginnings. She has made a name for herself in the entertainment industry. We cannot wait to see where LDShadowLady goes next!
