Good Wigs for Spiking?

I'm looking for a good wig to spikes since my brother is wanting to cosplay Jak from Jak3.

How can you tell if a wig is spike-able?

What are the best spiking techniques?

Arda has great Spikable wigs on their site. A wig that works well w spikes must be full but also have the wefts partially sewn in backwards. This is what allows for the good spiking base. I really wouldn't recommend an eBay wig for this....

Also, look at the Jett from arda. It's short like Jak's hair (I believe i'm looking at the right character)

That would work,though I think it's a bit to short. A Magnum may work better.

Here's a decent picture of him: http://community.us.playstation.com/...v=mpbl-1&px=-1

Oh I see. I think I was looking at a pic with shorter hair then. It didn't look that long in the one I saw lol And yea, THAT height will be not possible with the jett.But it won't with the magnum either. That wig is extremely thin and the wefts show like crazy since it's not a skintop anymore (well not a big skintop anyway).

If you want a good spiking one, I say go with the Melinda. It's gonna need to be cut a LOT biut it is made for that exact style.

Or you can use the Punky wig. I'm not sure exactly where to get one now, but I know Ampigory.com sells one. But the time to get it takes forever and you have to use a credit card cuz they don't take paypal
