"Clip mapping is the term used to describe using photographs or drawings as maps onto objects with an alpha channel. This creates the illusion of a detailed 3D object when in computer terms, all we have in the scene is one simple polygon."


apply a feather texture+alpha to a plane and copy it, overlaying, also used for hair in games.

is a great tutorial on how to do it with hair.

don't know of any specifically dealing with feathers but it should be a very similar process as hair.

P.S. i didn't know it was called Clip Mapping till just now either.
