Oddly shaped skirt. Calne Ca

Hi all!
I'm working on a calne ca Cosplay, with a twist on her outfit.
it's going to be a Ballgown like this,

But the skirt will be shaped like this

I am not sure how to shape the hoop skirt to get that huge, pannier-like effect. I've made a few hoops before, but nothing as big as this. It looks as if there are two contraptions under there! Any ideas?
I'm struggling with a pattern for it as well. Should I make the hoop and then "sculpt" the skirt around it? The train is also very long, and while I've made ballgowns before, I've never drafted a pattern for a train. I would LOVE some pointers.
