try multiplying Of by 0.9-something,
after its multiplied with Cf.
you should get an additive effect.

You'll need a TON of particles, advect them with a pyro sim to get the ribbony look. Set their alpha value very low so that they stack up and get solid in the areas they're most concentrated. Point prims render very efficiently in Mantra but depending on how many particles you end up with you'll need to use a delayed load procedural for rendering
