Among the cosplayers that have garnered a significant amount of attention online, many of them all happen to live in or around Los Angeles. While that may seem to make standing out from that crowd a difficult endeavor, it is still very possible to accomplish when you have something unique to offer. In the case of Elizabeth Rage, she brought out a full set of artistic talents that have been entertaining her fans for the past 5 years. In addition to her cosplay & costume making skills, she has become an accomplished model, singer, & actor!
Even before she made her cosplay debut, Elizabeth started off in New York after graduating as a musical theater major from NYU. During that time, she worked with the YouTube channel AVbyte as an actress, singer & designer, entertaining audiences online since 2012. Once there, she quickly became well known as their resident Belle for all their Disney musicals. In fact, old fans of the channel may also remember her from Twitter: The Musical, Procrastination, or Tumblr: The Musical (which was made in association with Hank Green, aka one half of the Vlog Brothers). On top of all that, she also had her own short-lived YouTube channel, Rage Puppets, which garnered her a guest hosting spot with DIY Prop Shop. Since moving to LA, she has worked with other creators like Chris Villain, Nerdbot Media, & the team over at Honest Trailers, to continue her acting & musical career. It was also in LA where her modeling really took off. Not only has her cosplay work garnered nearly 300K followers on Instagram, but she has two additional Instagram accounts where she posts all of her non-cosplay work.
If this is the first you are hearing about Elizabeth, we highly recommend checking her work out! She is fantastic at what she does & genuinely cares about her fans. Elizabeth is a fantastic cosplayer & a wonderful entertainer. With any luck, we will only be seeing more of her as time goes on!
