Hi, I don't have a tutorial but it's the same as spiking any other wig! There some really good wig spiking tutorials on Deviantart, that can explain things better than I can. Basically you just need the right wig (one that can easily be slicked back), a wig head (very important, they're only like $4 at the store), some pins to pin the wig to the wig head, some got2bglued hair spray and maybe a hair dryer(low setting) or straightener(only if your wig is heat resistant). That's all I used. The front fibers had to be cut, because they were a bit too long to be spikes. It might seem scary at first but it's not that bad if you do a little at a time and cut with the scissors parallel to the fibers, rather than perpendicular (which makes a blunt cut). Dento has 4 spikes in the front so you have to "train" the fibers to stick up, by using heat. That step is optional but it might make things easier when you spike it. I actually used a straightener to attempt to shape the spikes into rounded those weird rounded points he has. Just remember that the fibers will "set" in the position that it cools in. So if you apply a lot of heat with a straightener and then curve the fibers, you will have to make the fibers hold that position until it cools completely. It kind of worked...As for the actual spiking, just form the spike with your fingers, spray it using got2bglued, and then don't let go until it's completely dry. You might use a hairdryer on low to make it dry faster. It also might help to have the wig upside down so that gravity works in your favor. For the wig dyeing, I just followed a tutorial I also found on DA (if you type in 'wig dye tutorial', it's the very first result) that was easy to understand and it worked great!! I hoped it helped.
