Are you thinking in terms of a "classical"
disruptive-type tesla coil with a spark gap, a
solid-state coil, or a vacuum tube coil?

If a classical spark-gap coil is what you want, I
suggest you start looking for a suitable high-voltage
power supply now, before you do anything else.  I say
this because it is usually the hardest part to find. 
I suggest the biggest neon sign transformer you can
afford, or else a couple of HV transformers from
discarded microwave ovens.
