Fort Description (and more pics)
The fort started out bright and white with a complicated styrofoam cup ceiling. Took quite a long time to do and involved rubber banding the cups together, hot gluing them, and then stringing them up in all kinds of ways.

Here’s a little clip of the nonsensical discussions that occurred during the darkness (the screams are from when the light surprises everyone each time):
