Welcome to Tube Chum’s Channel Spotlight, where our team of YouTube fanatics shine a light on some of the video-sharing website’s top stars. Today, we’re taking a closer look at Minecraft gamer and bunny lover, LDShadowLady!
We asked Lizzie how she’d describe her channel to LDShadowLady newbies. She told us: “I play video games and react to whatever happens in-game and try to be funny!”
Since she first started producing videos for YouTube back in 2010, LDShadowLady’s YouTube channel has grown into something magical. Lizzie can now boast to be one of the most-subscribed female gamers on YouTuber, so we asked her how she copes with this impressive title.
An introduction to Lizzie’s channel
Lizzie explained to Tube Chum: “I try not to think about it too much because it’s kind of freaky to imagine that so many people are going to watch my videos. Regardless of how many people are going to see it, I still leave the embarrassing moments in my videos”.

“I think it’s important to show people that I’m not perfect and I make mistakes too. Especially when there are so many people watching, people forget I’m a real human being and think I’m a robot or something”.
Our Favourite Video
In our opinion, Lizzie’s Shadowcraft Minecraft series (V2) is one of the best around, so it makes sense that the first episode of the adventure is our favourite.
Welcome to the world of Shadowcraft!
Shadowcraft follows Lizzie as she builds a unique world with a set of mods originating from Minecraft 1.7.2.
This modded single-player survival series offers plenty of twists and turns along the way and Lizzie’s fun, engaging personality makes every episode as enjoyable as the last. We recommend you take a look if you haven’t done so already!
Speaking about her top YouTube achievements, Lizzie told Tube Chum that her Minecraft series is one of her best.
“I’m most proud of my Minecraft single player series because those episodes require the most hours of work on-camera and off-camera. I’ve basically built a huge world around myself and there’s a story behind everything in it”.
Perhaps one of the biggest reasons why LDShadowLady’s fans keep coming back for more is because of the YouTuber’s love for collabs. During her time online, Lizzie has teamed up with some other big names on YouTube, including the likes of Joey Graceffa, iHasCupquake and SmallishBeans.
Lizzie said: “I probably enjoy collaborating with my boyfriend (Smallishbeans) the most because I feel that we’re so close that we can bounce jokes off each other really well”.
[pullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]”When I get to work with big YouTube channels it feels like a great honour. It’s very exciting![/pullquote]
“However, most of the ‘big channels’ I’ve collaborated with were people I’ve already been watching on YouTube for a while. When I get to work with them it feels like a great honour and it’s very exciting!”
With 2015 almost at an end, our attention turned to the LDShadowLady of next year. Lizzie told us: “I’m definitely going to be playing Minecraft for a long time but I would love to try out a wider variety of games on my channel too!”
Like / Subscribe / Block
We asked Lizzie if she could come up with a video she likes, a channel she’d recommend we subscribe to and a channel or YouTube trend we should block.
Like: My favourite video of all time is called ‘Weirdest video you will EVER see‘ and it lives up to its name. It’s some kind of obscure ballet and it’s disturbingly hilarious.
Subscribe: I love watching short science videos so I’d recommend the VSauce channel if you want to learn something new today.
Block: I think videos with titles like “10 WAYS TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE” need to go away. I stumble across one and before you know it, I’ve lost three hours on a journey through pointless countdowns and life hacks.
We’d like to thank Lizzie for having a chat with us. What’s your favourite LDShadowLady video? Let us know by tweeting us at @TubeChum.
