Hello Pros!

I need help sewing a "cork screw" or spiral tube shape.

This is for my halloween costume, in which, I will be representing a cluster of bacteria which is has a spiral shape.  Any guesses as to which bacteria this is? 

here is a picture: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/29/Treponema_pallidum.jpg

And I would like to think that my sewing skills are fairly advanced, however I can't being to think how I would get this shape.  If I start with 2 straight pieces and stitch them together, then I will have a long tube, and would need to use something to hold its shape.  If I cut 2 spiral shapes, then the circles will increase in size.

Would working on the bias help? errr. if anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them.

Thanks Crafters!

p.s I am thinking about using a lime green fabric with a slight fuzz too it.  I want these curls to be kinda plush-like.  And would also like to avoid wires. Grin
