Taxi Billy with her hair combed smoother, and twisted slightly in the back. I love this young woman's sculpt and facepaint, and gorgeous hair!
Taxi Billy wears a little red knit hat I purchased from TinyFrockShop.com. Even though it's sized for 12 inch fashion dolls, it fits her well. Swapping clothes between various sized dolls is going to make for a lot of interesting outfits!
Taxi Billy wears another sweater I hand knit, this one out of reclaimed purple merino. The pattern balloons out around her hips, tapers at the waist, then expands back up along the bustline. It ends with a high neckline. I was thinking about listing this sweater, but seeing how good it looks on Billy, I may not be able to let it go...
Picture taken with flash. You can really see how green her eyes are!

Taxi Billy is very posable, with a body similar to Ellowyne Wilde, but much more slender. She is able to pivot at the bustline so she can strike plenty of poses.
Here Taxi Billy shows how close she can get to a "true" leg cross. I have yet to find a doll that can sit with her legs crossed and not fall over backwards, or otherwise look ridiculous, but Billy is darn close. She rivals Horsman Vita dolls in this aspect.
City Girl Taxi Billy comes with pre-painted white panties.
The bag closes at the top with velcro, so you could load it up with props for the gal on the go!
The yellow tunic closes with a strip of velcro, reminding us that this doll is aimed for younger collectors.
For a doll aimed at younger collectors, the lack of snaps to close the coat with surprised me. You have to take the coat off by sliding it all the way down her legs. There's no way (I could see) to open the coat and take it off "normally". I anticipate some problems with this, including potential rips when someone tries to open the coat the way you'd expect. This is the only negative I could find with Taxi Billy, and it's a small one.
City Girl Taxi Billy is sixteen inches tall, measured head to toe. This is the same height as other Tonner dolls like Nu Mood Sydney and Ellowyne Wilde. She is definitely much more slender, so sharing clothes is not going to be a given, by any means.
Taxi Billy has awesome hair! It's thick and wavy, and took a comb without any problems.
I love these giant sunglasses! Very Audrey Hepburn.
Taxi Billy standing next to her tube. The interior is knid of nifty, and would make a nice background prop, so I'm not getting rid of it anytime soon.
