08:26 pm - How to go to the washroom while wearing a hakama. Offering cyber-cookies for solution :D

Alright, ok, so given that "hakamas" (or at least the kind I currently have in my possession) is in actuality a pair of baggy, baggy pants I've stumbled on a small problem...

How do I go to the bathroom without having to take the entire hakama off (and if you knew how the hakama's tied you wouldn't want to have to take it off then put it back on several times a day either)???? 

O______O

My Japanese roommate tells me that guys just lift one "pant"-leg up, and since it's so wide, guys can just...kind of go...but uh....I'm a little physically disadvantaged.

Anyone?  Anyone?  Any ingenious ideas to solve this little problem so come Halloween day I won't have to dehydrate myself a week in advance to ensure I don't need to go to the washroom on Halloween day?

Lol, I know eh? But I mean, there has to be a way since maikos also wore hakamas and there ARE female hakamas being sold that are the pant-leg styled.

That...doesn't really make much sence if you consider that in Japan the hakama was worn as a normal-day clothing for several hundred, if not thousands, of years. Yes it was mostly the men that wore it, but women did as well. Just because in the 21st century where globalization's brought a spread and homogenization of Western/American clothing doesn't mean that other fashions weren't at one point in time normal in their own respective countries.

Well even if it isn't a major fashion trend in the West if you like it you can always wear it out, lol. I've worn my kimono to classes and stuff before, albeit you do have to be able to deal with the "O___O" looks from people around you, but wearing something out of ordinary once in awhile when you feel like dressing up (even if it's not Halloween) can be fun :D

Anyway, good luck with that. If it were me, I'll just bear with it... You'll end up being slightly fidgety and uncomfy but you won't die XDDDD (feel free to whack me btw cos I know what I said was totally useless) Ahh~ The benefits of coming to this world with a big bladder. XD *runs away laughing*
Anyway, good luck with finding out. I'm sure there'll be something online? ><;
