I went away for an hour to take a shower and the thing is already sprouting some wings. So freaky and weird!

That’s so amazing!
Those are just the outlines of the wings in the pupal case, the entire body is in a semi-liquid state right now as it reshapes to the adult form. It will be a few days before it actually “setes up” and has defined body parts within the casing, and a week or so before it will actually emerge. My tiny moths at work will stay in the pupal state for a week to ten days, and they are only 1/2 inch long, so a bigger guy like this one may take a bit longer.
That is so stinkin cool!!!!!!!
