@Alan: Problematic Elements of the Erlking

I am having some issues with two elements of the Erlking character. 

Element 1 is the branch ornament/detail that starts in front and ends at the back. I am not quite sure what to do with it. I tried wrap deform and it seemed to work ok, but Maya slowed down a lot. Is there a different way of attaching it to the body? 

Element number 2 is the front cloth detail of the Robe. I tried skinning but it looked awful and wouldn't work properly.
