Hey, I'm the maker of the Arctic Fire preset, and I'm sure there are several ways to make angel wings with it. Try wearing a pair of costume wings, and using an inverted mask to trace around the wings. Then, simply animate the particle emitter to cover the wings. If you want a more integrated look, a mixture of wing and fire, then you want to do this: Make two copies of your footage, and use an inverted Garbage matte to trace around the wings. Then, link an object mask FROM arctic fire TO the COPY of your footage. In the mask menu, you can play with the #2 box with the channel type: Alpha, RGB, and RGBA. Also, play around with the Arctic Fire composite mode, the Add and Soft light modes are often interesting. A bit of glow over the entire scene would help to make it seem even more angelic. Hope this helps,
