Former Juneau resident Susan Braley, right, laughs with her friends, from left, Kerry Howard, Carin Smolin, Justine Muench and Mary Siroky, before rehearsal Saturday for the Wearable Arts Extravaganza. For her 50th birthday, friends surprised Braley with the gift of a flight back to Juneau from Olympia, Wash., where she lives. An hour before rehearsal for the show, her friends presented Braley with a dress made of Wonder Bread bags that she was to model on stage Saturday night. Look for the full story on the Extravaganza, along with a photo layout, on Page A4 of Monday's Empire.
