Rapidash cosplay questions ASAP!

Hello fellow cosplayers,
I have thought that I will do a rapidash cosplay.
Problem is how the hell will I achieve the flames on my arms, legs and the tail?
I was thinking that I would use fake fur and sort of create a puffy fire in a way, ofcourse I would be dying the fur red, orange, and yellow. I know what I am doing with the wig, horn/ears and outfit, just wondering what I should do for the flames.
What do you guys think?

I've seen people using thick feathers to make a fire effect and looked pretty nice.

You don't have to like fightingdreamerspro, but I think Valdrein did a really good take on Rapidash.
Here's the vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tp_0ddbMoE
She used orange and yellow sheer material, to make it sort of veil like. I think it looks nice.
But your take sounds interesting too.^^

one thing i can suggest is i saw a shego cosplayer from kim possiable that made those green flames out of a mesh like material that you can find at almost any store and a large varity of colors it looked really good and had a flame like look to it. you might be able to change the colors and make a rapadash mane
