9 inch relaxed S shaped fat fake tounge that can flex under pressure, but will always snap back to original position?

I'm making a 9 inch tounge for a krampus mask, it needs to be an S like shape, be flexible enough to bend but always snap back to position, and Ideas how I can make this on the cheap?

That's just a very weak coiled wire spring inside a paper tube.  Seems a minor modification to the wire would give you the result you need.
