I aspire to own one ONE day. Years and years down the road when I am forced to wear a hakama as a yudansha.
I already gripe and complain when sensei asks me to wear a hakama to help him teach the actors (they are doing "Throne of Blood"). My sighs and face never seem to get my point across. HAHA.
I prefer to wear the hakama. It covers up the fact that I wear yoga pants and not gi bottoms... they seriously don't make gi pants for short full hipped women. I seriously question how girls bigger than me can even get flexibility in those gi pants.
