Using camera trickery and expression magic you can see the particles at an angle.

Creating the illusion of 3D Orientation in 3D space:
Make your custom particle 3D and add a camera.
Undock your comp panel to see your main comp also.
Then link the custom particle cameras position and the point of interest by pick-whiping to your main comp camera.
That's it!!!
