Man-eating plants for Halloween -- need help w/ ideas for main stalk

Hi guys! I am trying to make a few man-eating plants for Halloween this year, but having trouble finding a way to make a posable main stalk to place the head and make it look like a plant as opposed to a cardboard tube w/ a little shop of horrors head on top. Any ideas for materials that would allow bend ability/posing of the main stalk/body? Thanks!

How tall? You can use rebar for the base and bend it. Wrap it in latex paint soaked cheesecloth and grape vine
I made a large sized eyeball and man-eating type plant a few years back. They were a little on the fun side put I used pvc and connecters with bendable pvc on the top to give them a rounded look. I recently had to try and make completely posable arms on a prop and used the diy version of store props. I bought a pkg. (you may have it on hand) of electrical wiring (sorry but I'm too naive to know whats it's called) that was thick enough to hold it's own and ran it through a dollar store pool noodle. This may work for what you want or at least an idea to improve on.
I was thinking no more than 5' or 6', with long vines coming out of the planters pot, but lightweight.
All I can think of is maybe PVC pipe inside of pool noodles?
