If I was going to use something completely opaque, I would probably cut out a panel of plastic on the top/side and replace it with a panel of plexiglass. You want the snake to be able to see natural light to some degree to allow it to maintain a normal photoperiod. If you just keep it in the dark all the time, it might go off food due to it trying to hibernate.
