Ok, I don't know what do DMC game hair look like, but generally it's not really possible to make a good hare in Anim8or.

There is a hair plugin (you'll find it in the "scripts" section), but I don't know how it looks, I've never tried it... And the wind blowing effect would be quite difficult, you would have to use morph targets and make the movement step by step...

In anim8or it's completely possible to create hair and clothing, but it takes much more work than in other programs.  There's no particle generator in anim8or, so for hair you have to use transparency maps.
For clothing animation you'd have to use morph targets as anim8or doesn't have physics simulations of any sort.
So it's entirely possible, it just takes more work and imagination.

phantom king, I agree with hihosilver it is possible to create hair. I tried to put a tutorial on here but the file was too large. Whats your emial? I will send it off to you

EDIT: The tutorila does not focus on mapping textures but contructing the hair piece by piece using objects etc... It loooks very realistic though, the tutorial is a bit hard to follow (It's a video) and it goes very fast and isn't very clear so you will have to pay attention :)
