Question Making Sora's Halloween wings?

I basically know how I want to make my wings, but my question is HOW to attach them. I've looked at other peoples' cosplays, and most of them attached them to the jacket in some sort of fashion, just behind the jacket's cape. I plan to use cable wire, so how do I do this? I'm out of ideas.

I've already searched the forums for help, and I didn't find anything helpful...

Thank you in advance.

Actually, a lot of people have shoulder straps or harnesses that hold the wings underneath the jacket, the jacket itself does not support the wings. Think about how and where a back packs' straps fit, that's essentially what you need to build to support your wings. Then make a small opening in the jacket to pass the wing anchor through to attach the harness.
Nothing is impossible, but some things are very expensive.
My Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/penlowe I make non-fitted custom things to ship within the continental US. I only do fitted garments for those whom I can meet in person.

Make a harness? Would you by any chance know where I could find pictures of this? Thank you for the suggestion!
